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!

9 reasons to buy

- Weighing in at 21.2 lbs, the bike is lightweight.
- The 1.5” Kenda Small Block Eight Pro tires roll smoothly, on the Alpha Four.
- The seat is easily adjustable. This allows riders with 23” to 28” inseams to use the bike comfortably.
- Shimano’s Altus drivetrain provides riders a wide range of gears. The bike has 8 speeds.
- The trigger shifters on the Prevelo Alpha Four allow riders to shift smoothly between gears.
- Straight, child-sized cranks create a narrow Q factor on the bike. This reduces leg splay and helps riders gain better leverage for efficient power transfer.
- The small brake levers are easy for young riders to reach and use.
2 reasons not to buy
- The bike’s trigger shifter is difficult for some children to operate. A grip shifter would be easier for riders to operate, according to one expert.
