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 Nakto Camel uses a heavy steel frame and doesn’t feature disc brakes. This is one of the reasons that it can be offered for so low a price. It’s designed for casual city riding and reviewers said it suited this purpose. It’s top speed was widely recognized as a decent 18mph. It isn’t terrible but it isn’t high-end. Most buyers received a functioning e-bike. Durability varied widely between customers.

Nakto Camel Review – Step-Thru Cruiser Ebike

Level 2 expert

It’s definitely a cruiser bike… it’s going for a lightweight use… for low impact activity… what you’re getting is a low price-point bike with a lot of generic parts on it.

Reviewing an Amazon Electric Bicycle: Can You Really e-Bike on the Cheap?

Level 2 expert

I can’t complain about the bike for this price. It’s not great but it’s good enough… This bike is the definition of mediocrity, but sometimes a mediocre bike is all anyone wants or needs.
