Christmas Bike Buying Guide

Christmas Bike Buying Guide

Reid Cycles have you covered with our guide to choosing the perfect bicycle for under $500.

Can you believe it is nearly Christmas? The year has passed so quickly and has been different from what any of us expected. But now we're all thinking about Christmas gifts and there is no doubt that the hottest gift for 2021 is a bicycle!

With all the talk around bike shops running out of stock already, many people are asking "Am I going to be able to get a bike for Christmas this year?"

Well, Reid Cycles are happy to announce that we have plenty of stock for the upcoming holiday season. They are selling fast though so the advice is to plan early this year if you want to be set for the big day.

So that leaves us with the question - which bike to choose?

Well, we have a whole range of bikes under $500 in different styles, colours, and sizes so whether it's a gift for a loved one or a cheeky present for yourself we've got you covered.


Here at Reid, we love a stylish Vintage bike! They make a great choice for someone who just wants the simple pleasures a bike can bring. Whether it's for city cruising or beach hopping, our Vintage bikes are the perfect companion.

Vintage bikes embody freedom, convenience and style. It's no wonder they’re our bestsellers with 15+ colours to choose from and great accessories like Front and Rear Baskets so you'll be able to customise your perfect look!
