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 Continuum Onyx is an attractive belt drive bicycle that shifts smoothly. It rides quietly and excels on the pavement with slick tires. Hydraulic disc brakes, mounts for racks, bosses for water bottle cages, integrated lights and fenders combine to make this a capable commuter. The bike is a bit heavy and shifting with a twist shifter can take time to get used to. However, numerous owners praise the smooth, stepless shifting provided by Enviolo's CVT internal planetary hub. Overall the bike is great for commuting.
