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 contact@bikeride.com with documentation of the price. We’re committed to making sure that the cost of a bike does not keep you from cycling!

  • On many occasions, the Wildcat arrived missing parts.

Bottom line

One owner of the Wildcat described the bike as ‘good for occasional rides’. Bikes don’t get much cheaper than this, in price or quality. While it would be possible to upgrade most of the parts and make this an enjoyable ride, it would equate to the cost of a higher quality bike. Before buying a bike like the Wildcat, you might consider whether this machine will detract or add to your interest in cycling.
