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 NAKTO Camel presents a bargain-basement option in the ‘entry-level full-size e-bike’ category. At this price, you get a beast of burden, ready-shod with a basket, rack, fenders and other goodies. It seems to have no trouble reaching the state-sanctioned 20mph e-bike speed limit. A reviewer described the suspension fork as ‘cheap’ but ‘acceptable’, saying that it coped with city streets. Riders will need it to soften the impact of 68lbs of e-bike hitting city potholes. It isn’t terrible, but it isn’t high-end. Most buyers received a functioning e-bike - but at this price, for a few - it was a lottery.

Reviewing a [Low Cost] Amazon Electric Bicycle: Can You Really E-Bike on the Cheap?

Ultimately, the bike worked just fine as a typical, flat land city bike… if you go with the Nakto, do it because you are on a budget… Don’t do it because you expect something of great quality. .. This bike is the definition of mediocrity, but sometimes a mediocre bike is all anyone wants or needs.
