BikeRide works hard to help you find the lowest prices and information on each bike from the widest possible range of sources. BikeRide is reader-supported, and sometimes we receive commissions for links you click on. Read Privacy Policy

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

When assembled and tuned by a mechanic, the Kedzie proved to be a decent short-distance bike for commuting, colleges and cities. Owners sometimes stressed the need for professional attention from new, including greasing of bottom brackets and hubs. Brakes were not the best and were sometimes replaced. Parts were sometimes overtightened. A single large size limits the Kedzie to taller riders. While the frame is heavy, owners said it was durable and felt sturdy.
