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.

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

This bike earns praise for its sturdy folding mechanisms, comfortable ride, and comprehensive accessories (excluding a taillight). However, some worrying design flaws concern testers and users. The most notable include occasional motor cut-offs, poor braking performance, overheating controllers, and electronic failures. Experts also report loose handlebars and speed/battery-level inaccuracies. Careful consideration of these drawbacks is advised before purchasing the NAKTO Folding OX.
