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!

Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the QuietKat Villager. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

8 reasons to buy

  • The Villager’s step-through frame makes mounting and dismounting easy.
  • With different tires, the Villager can be ridden across dirt roads, parkland and grass.
  • The Villager’s Tektro mechanical discs use large 203mm rotors, to bring it to a stop.
  • Full-size, color-coded fenders come included with the Villager.
  • The Villager’s 3” wide, slick tires are comfortable on all urban roads.
  • A sturdy rear rack is integrated into the Villager’s frame.
  • The Villager’s entry-level 100mm coil shock irons out road bumps.
  • A number of owners say the Villager rides well off-road.

4 reasons not to buy

  • The Villager is only available in one 16 inch frame size.
  • The maximum brake rotor size specified for an RST fork is 180mm. The 203mm rotors fit to the Villager may void the fork’s warranty.
  • If the Villager used hydraulic disc brakes with a brake cut-off, these would prove more powerful than the mechanical disc brakes provided.
  • The Villager is not equipped with a rear light.

Bottom line

The Villager is QuietKat’s urban, step-through commuter. It’s equipped with a 500W hub-drive motor. With 3” tires, it comfortably rolls over even broken asphalt. With a change to knobbly tires, owners report that the Villager rides well off-road. This is a Class 2 e-bike with a limited maximum speed of 20mph, allowing it to be ridden on urban roads and bike paths. The Villager is equipped with five levels of pedal assist and a throttle. It can handle a 325 lb payload and is available in two colors: ‘Classic Blue’ and ‘Veil Poseidon Blue Camo’. Components are mid-range. The Villager is available in a single 16-inch frame size.
