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 Reelight 150 C is a front and rear set of hub-mounted, magnetic induction lights. They don't require batteries and you don't need to recharge them. They remain installed on your bike. Reelight 150 C lights are attached to your hubs and contain a dynamo coil. A magnet is attached to your spokes. This magnet passes by the coil to power your lights. Unlike other dynamo-driven lights, the Reelight 150 C set produces no friction. They emit a modest light, intended only to maintain visibility in already-lit sub/urban areas. Being hub-mounted, they sit at a low position above the ground. They are difficult to steal. Some buyers say the asking price is higher than they expected. Lighting diminishes quickly once pedaling comes to a stop.
