Published

To quote the great Syd Barrett, "I've got a bike, you can ride it if you like. It's got a basket, a bell that rings and things to make it look good." Heavy, man. You can have a bike too — you just have to click through to Walmart or Amazon for a new pair of wheels. If you can't find the right bike for you, check out our other bicycle deals, too. We can’t promise a basket, though.

  1. Airwalk Clipper Women's 26" Cruiser Bike bundled with a $20 Walmart eGift Card
    Vendor: Walmart
    Price: $154 with 97-cent s&h
    Lowest By: $154

    Is It Worth It?: We adore the stylish lines on the icy blue Airwalk Clipper Women's 26" Cruiser Bike, available at Walmart with a $20 eGift Card for $154. It's got a comfort seat for long, easy rides and coaster brakes, a steel frame, and steel rims, for style and performance.

  2. Diamondback Men's 2012 Response 22" Mountain Bike
    Vendor: Amazon
    Price: $311.92 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $88

    Is It Worth It?: Durable as all get-out, the Diamondback Men's 2012 Response 22" Mountain Bike in Black is the Energizer Bunny of bikes. This 21-speed, hardtail mountain bike is perfect for hitting the trails and features a SR Suntour XCT 100mm suspension fork, Shimano Altus 7-speed rear derailleur, Tektro alloy linear brakes, and more. Although the price increased by about a buck since our original post, it's still a great deal, available at a price low of $88.

  3. Glide Bikes 12" Balance Training Bicycle
    Vendor: Hammacher Schlemmer
    Price: $59.95 with $11.95 s&h
    Lowest By: $27

    Is It Worth It?: Hammacher Schlemmer isn't exactly synonymous with "thrifty shopping," but they have a very nice deal on The Training Bicycle That Will Transform Your Little One Into Lance Armstrong. OK, so that's not its real name, but the the Glide Bikes 12" Balance Training Bicycle in Red is super cute, It has an alloy frame, composite mag wheels, EVA foam tires that never need air, a kickstand, and more. It doesn't have pedals, but that's a feature, not a bug.

  4. Diamondback 2012 Insight 1 Performance Hybrid Bike
    Vendor: Amazon
    Price: $400 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $14

    Is It Worth It?: If you want a quality bicycle that combines the best features of both road bikes and mountain bikes and that can ride fast for hours, look into Diamondback 2012 Insight 1 Performance Hybrid Bicycle. It's got too many features to list, but the 21-speed Shimano drivetrain, alloy linear pull-brakes, and integrated Hi Ten Ferrous Aero straight blade fork, are essential. It's available in heights from 15" to 21".

  5. Huffy Cranbrook 26" Cruiser Bikes bundled with $20 Walmart eGift Cards

    Vendor: Walmart

    Is It Worth It?: For a bike with a cool classic look, the Huffy Men's Cranbrook 26" Cruiser Bike in Bronze (pictured) or the Huffy Women's Cranbrook 26" Cruiser Bike in Mint Green are classic rides and are priced at the retro price of $88 each. Plus, these wheels come bundled with a $20 Walmart eGift Card that you can spend on all the necessary gear.
