Hi all, I am 170cm and 55kg. I dont like carrying heavy stuff while cycling, so i guess my bag shouldn't weight more than 5kg. I am looking for a durable bike that can allow me to commute daily to school.The travelling distance for both to&fro(6kmeachway) would be within 15km.
I would prefer a bike that is 'best value for money' because I am on a budget of AUD350. Bikes within the range of +/- of 100 can still be considered.
Pls help and guide me to my rightful bike:)

Hi,

Thanks for the query.

Sounds you need a solid hybrid bike. For this price range I can certainly recommend the City one bike

https://www.reidcycles.com.au/reid-city-1-0-bike.html

This bike is built for long distances, it has a light Aluminium Alloy frame and 21 Shimano gears to help you go the distance. It also comes with full mud guards that will get you to school without getting covered in spray and mud from a wet floor. It also comes with a pannier rack so that you can attach a pannier bag allowing you to take some of the weight off you back.

However if its cool you going for and you want a commuter bike you can't go past the Urban Xo

https://www.reidcycles.com.au/reid-urban-x0.html

It doesn't hat the accessories that the city 1 has but it is lighter. It boasts the following features:

Lightweight Alloy Commuter Frame with Internal Cable Routing and Headset
Reliable and simple to use Shimano 7-Speed Tourney gearing
Tough and lightweight alloy wheelset for city riding

I hope this helps you choose a bike. If you have any further questions I recommend that you come into store where you are welcome to test any of bike range.

Regards
Reid

Hi, I'm about 157cm rider and I'm looking for a bike for commute and just every day going out and about. I'd like to get an entry level road bike. What can you recommend?

Hi

Thanks for the query!

Here are two recommendations that would certainly be great for commuting

http://www.reidcycles.com.au/urban-x1.html

This bike is from the Reid urban range. its great value for money and features an 8 speed Shimano gearing system and Promax Alloy V-Brakes. The frame is Reid Hydroformed Alloy with Internal Cabling, so it is light and will need less maintenance. It's quick on the road but more durable then a conventional road bike.

The next bike is a Reid City 2. Though this bike is not a conventional road bike it would be very fantastic for commuting. It has 24 Speed Shimano Acera gearing and Tektro V-Brakes. It has a slopped back frame and so is easer to get on and off. It's main difference from the above bike is that it has front suspension. This makes the bike a bit heavier but will take some of the bumps out of the ride providing a smooth journey to work.

http://www.reidcycles.com.au/reid-city-2-0-bike.html

For both of the above bike I would recommend that you select a small size.

I hope this helps with your purchasing decision.

Regards

I'm looking to get this bike secondhand, it looks to be in good condition but I'm a novice in biking knowledge.
Although, I've been able to commute with really run down vintage road bikes that I got as a gift.
I'm looking to upgrade so I can travel within Tasmania or at least to nearby towns (15-100km distances)

Will this be a reliable option?

The Condor is a good, cheap bike, but it is definitely bottom of the range. I bought it to try cycling (or rather, triathlons) to see if I liked it before committing to a more expensive bike. If you know you are going to be doing some serious distances on it, I would recommend a better bike. If you don't want to spend a lot of money, I currently have a Reid Osprey which is great and still very cheap (currently $599 new incl helmet,lock,lights and pump - and you obviously get a warranty with new bikes). I can't imagine they would be much more than $200 second hand. Hope that helps!

Hi jasonkuan. Yes, the Condor is our entry level bike but is reliable and will do the job. If you can move up the range a bit though you will get a lighter bike, smoother shifting, better wheelset, STI shifters (brake and gears in one lever) and better brakes. If you are regularly doing 100km the Osprey is the bike I would recommend - we just had 3 people ride them from Perth to Melbourne in 23 days with no problems! If you are strictly on a budget though the Condor will do a good job and be a big improvement on what you're currently riding.

Hi, I am looking at my first road bike but I am 180cm and 115kg would this be appropriate for me?

Hi Candice. The bike would be fine but the wheelset on the Condor is only warrantied for people up to 110kg. You could step up the range to a better wheelset though. Please call (03) 9314 9091 to discuss your options.

Yes they are good value for money. I also recently did the Sydney to Wollongong ride on it and had no troubles at all. Also saw a lot of other Reid bikes that people were riding. I would recommend it for sure.

No Tom, They are not good quality, When I took mine out of the box it looked used, The rubbers on the handlebars were torn and broken and it is disassembled yet comes with no instructions.It's a poor product and I regret purchasing it to be honest with you.

I honestly beleive That any positive comments relating to this bike has to be the guys from reid cycles trying to save there products name. Is it just a coincidence that both positive comments have profile pictures of animals, come on guys you have to try a little harder than that if you want to fool us.
