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!

17 reasons not to buy
- Top speeds seemed to be lower than the claimed 18mph, being closer to 10-13mph.
- For some, the position of the pegs on the front wheel made for an uncomfortable, unstable ride.
- The rear tire had a tendency to ‘roll off’ and to puncture easily. Heats up until hot to touch.
- Batteries had issues; dying after 6 miles, battery-life halving after 6 months, failing to charge from new and not charging to completion.
- Customer service got a bad rap. Operators were unhelpful and questioned owners heavily.
- The accompanying app was buggy and incorrectly displayed speed and battery levels.
- Returns for repair or replacement required postage of the complete bike at the owners expense.
- Accessories were criticized for being fragile and weak, including headlights and the battery cover.
- The SwagCycle struggles on slight inclines and is unable to tackle real hills.
- Damage on arrival included a bent disc and some scratching.
- Owners found it annoying and unnecessary that an app was required to reach top speed.
- Some buyers reported that the SwagCycle’s actual range was half of what was claimed.
- The bike is not weatherproof and therefore unsuitable for wet weather.
- E-cyclists were bothered by an unnerving grinding sound emanating from the rear wheel.
- On rough roads, the lack of suspension and teensy wheels resulted in a rocky ride.
- Seat height is not adjustable. The SwagCycle may be too low to be used by tall riders.
- One owner received a returned product, complete with the previous owner’s return slip.

Swagtron’s SwagCycle Pro Is a Fun and Easy Ride, but Underpowered
When its battery runs dry, that’s it — there aren’t any pedals to fall back on or generate more power. It isn’t waterproof either, which means you should avoid riding it in the rain. Its greatest problem is that it’s underpowered.
