Bike Size Charts

BikeRide finds and shows you the best prices of the bikes you want to buy. Prices constantly change and it’s impossible to compare them all yourself.

We search for prices on over 120 bike retailers to guarantee that we find the lowest prices – to save you time and money.

It’s a promise we stand behind: If you find a lower price on a bike elsewhere, we will sell it to you for 10% less. For example, if you find a bike for $480 that we have listed at $500, we will offer you to buy it for $432 through BikeRide. The bike must be the same color and size, sold in the US and not include the use of a coupon.

If you find a lower price, email us at [email protected] with documentation of the price. We’re committed to making sure that the cost of a bike does not keep you from cycling!

Bottom line

The Mondraker Chrono is a cross-country bike that is built to race. It has 29” wheels and fast-rolling Maxxis Ikon tires. The geometry of the bike is aggressive but also provides riders with stability and control. Reliable SRAM components ensure rides can shift gears smoothly. The carbon frame is responsive and stiff, allowing riders the ability to accelerate and power through the trails they tackle. There are few complaints about this cross-country machine. The brake rotors are on the small side and the grips are not the most comfortable. Both these parts can be swapped, for greater comfort and effectiveness.
