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!

7 reasons not to buy

  • Mechanical brakes exhibit underwhelming power and squeal loudly.
  • The optional throttle is delayed and underwhelming when activated.
  • One owner found the alarm and fob to be buggy and frustrating.

  • Numerous owners expressed frustration with “poor” customer service.

Bottom line

Wing Bikes’ Freedom X is a Class 1 urban e-bike with integrated lights and a fob-operated alarm system. Owners can unlock a top speed of 24mph through the bike’s display. Additionally, owners can add an aftermarket throttle that operates without pedaling. Both mods will shift the Freedom X into Class 2 territory, making it illegal to ride in many areas. Owners can choose from three battery options, offering a purported 35, 45 or 60 miles of range. Some owners were satisfied with the price and performance of the Freedom X. Others were disappointed with what they saw as low to mid-range components. Customer service could be frustrating at times. A moderately-priced, entry-level option for security-conscious buyers.

Review: Wing Freedom X

If good looks, speed, and affordability matter when you’re shopping for an electric bike, this one checks all the boxes. I think the Freedom 2 is better value over the X. Regardless of which model you go with, you’re getting a lot for your money.

My Wing Bikes – Freedom X Review

I’ve had the bike for a month and a half and I have almost 500 miles on it. What I love about my Freedom X is tackling those hills that otherwise, I’ll be standing up pedaling, huffing and puffing – with this Wing bike that’s all gone. It’s an amazing purchase as an entry-level bike.

Wing Bikes Freedom X Black and Silver Review

All-in-all guys, I really, really like the bikes. I’m going to keep them for a long time. I’m happy with the purchase. One deciding factor for me, between a Van Moof and this, is that the Freedom X’s low battery means a lower center of gravity.
