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!

  • Runtimes impress testers, lasting as long as 36 hours on ‘Eco Flash’ mode.
  • With sealed bearings and a steel axle, testers praised the Arclights’ smooth action.
  • Arclight pedals use smart electronics and bicolor LEDs to ensure that your front-facing light is always white and your rear-facing light remains red.
  • Arclights feature 1x steady and 2x flashing light modes.
  • Light modules are removable and attach to Arclight pedals magnetically.
  • An included USB dock charges all 4 of the Arclights' light modules simultaneously.
  • Light is visible from the sides of Arclight pedals, providing lateral visibility.
  • An aftermarket Multi-Mount allows riders to mount the Arclights' modules on their handlebars, seatpost, helmet, or bag.
  • With an IP64 rating, Arclight pedals are both water and dust-resistant.

3 reasons not to buy

  • Reviewers and riders report that the Arclights’ low-profile ridges can become slippery in wet weather.
  • Experts and buyers note that these innovative pedals come at a high asking price.
  • Testers and users are aware of the Arclights’ substantial 1.3 lb total weight.

Bottom line

With their visibility enhanced by the Redshift Arclight pedals’ constant motion, testers say drivers gave them a wide berth. Many reviewers recommend using Arclight pedals in addition to regular handlebar and seatpost-mounted lights. Experts and users are impressed by their high-quality build. To some, the amount of grip on offer is underwhelming. Smart electronics ensure that your red light remains switched to the rear and your white light to the front! A truly innovative and high-quality component with a ‘not-low’ price to match.

Redshift Arclight Bike Pedals

For those who don’t ride clipless I’d say the only reason not to buy these is the price. If you are a year-round commuter, though, the cost is worth it. The brightness is impressive.

Now, last night I was doing wheelies the entire night, never had one of these slide out. These pedals keep me safe, they’re light, they’re not intrusive, they’re not something I have to think about because they auto-adjust.
