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!

10 reasons not to buy

  • A 28mph top-speed limits this bike to use on roads and private land.
  • The Vantage delivered a jarring ride on rutted roads.
  • One reviewer expected hydraulic brakes at this price-point.
  • Some testers stated that the Vantage was not suited to dirt roads.
  • In the hoods, the TRP mechanical brakes lacked leverage.
  • Some reviews stated that the Vantage e-Bikes were overpriced.
  • The bulky battery pack left some owners wanting a smaller unit.
  • A few riders felt that the saddle was somewhat uncomfortable.
  • The dark gray color was considered drab by some buyers.

Bottom line

After some apprehension, many first-time e-Bike riders were impressed with the Vantage Fxe and and RXe. They’ve been updated since the previous models, to include flat-mount disc brakes and a 15mm thru-axle on the fork. The unrestricted, 28mph top-speed ranks these bikes as ‘Class 3’ electric vehicles, which means that they can’t be legally ridden on bicycle paths or off-road trails. A higher-priced and higher-end offering than usual, from Schwinn.

Scwhinn Vantage RXE

The motor gives significantly more power than most… it’s very comfortable and easy to ride at 23–25 mph…this bike has really great range, especially with the 500Wh battery.
