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!

Ride1UP 700 Series Review 2022

There are lots of things I really like about the Ride1UP 700 Series, but arguably the most impressive is the fact that it’s specced with name-brand parts for a notably low price. Its hill climbing ability was a little less than expected.

Ride1UP 700 Step Through Review (Tested)

An overall great electric commuter bike. After spending two weeks riding the 700 Step-Through exclusively, I still can’t believe I’m getting all of the features and quality components on an e-bike priced at $____.

Complete Test and Review of the Ride1UP 700 Series Commuter Electric Bike

The power and braking on this is just fantastic. I’ve made it up that hill faster with this bike than with any other bike. As far as a well-built, affordable commuter bike, I think it’s a pretty good option. It does weigh 62 lb, the heaviest I’ve reviewed.

Ride1UP 700-Series Review

The Ride1UP 700-Series scored high marks across the board and is our top-rated electric bike. It’s on the heavier side. The 700-Series does have a somewhat more involved assembly process. Massive distance range.

Ride1UP 700 Series E-Bike Review – Does It Check All the Boxes on Our List?

It’s affordable, it’s powerful enough for light off-road riding, and it’s fast enough to clock 28 miles per hour. There are lighter electric bikes. Putting the Ride1UP 700 together can be a pain.
