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

Night Provision's PS1200v2 light set combines a generous 1200-lumen headlight with a taillight capable of putting out 220 lumens. What makes this set stand out is the ability to output strobe lighting in red and blue, at both ends of your bike. While this may be legally questionable for everyday citizens of certain states, in others it’s perfectly lawful. The PS1200v2 is commended by reviewers claiming to be working police. Even if you aren’t an officer of the law (or playing at being one), most buyers say this is a powerful light set offered at a competitive price.
