Granite 2.0

Find your way to work each day and then get lost on the weekend. Meet the new Reid Granite.

Simply put, Gravel-grinders (AKA All-Road, Adventure Road or Dirt-Road-Racers) are like a CX (Cylcocross) bike built for Endurance riding. The features that make these bikes perfect for dirty distance racing across varied terrain also make them perfect for all-conditions commuting. Is your daily route to work as smooth as a dancefloor..? Neither is ours. Read on:

  • A lightweight 6061 Hydroformed Alloy frame and custom Carbon fork with front/rear rack and mudguard mounts plus extra clearance for up to 40C wide tyres. Getting to work or loading up for a weekend of bike trekking? The Granite has you covered.
  • The latest Shimano Claris FC-2450 50/34T Compact crankset with an 11-32t cassette will keep things spinning no matter which way the road takes you.
  • TRP Spyre C Mechanical Discs which feature a dual piston design for outstanding performance, even disc wear in gritty conditions and easy adjustment when you’re out and about (which you don’t get with hydraulics). Road.cc reckons the “TRP Spyre mechanical disc brakes are the best non-hydraulic road bike and cyclo-cross stoppers we've used.”
  • Built to keep going – the Granite runs on Alex MD17 rims fitted with Continental 35C Cyclocross Speed tyres.

All this makes the bike not only suited for dirt road riding, but also perfect for the rigours of a daily commute (with the option of a bit of fun on the weekends thrown in). Believe the hype - these bikes are true all-rounders.

 

For online home delivery orders, bikes are shipped in a box 85% assembled and require some final assembly. For more information please see our shipping and returns page. Bikes purchased in-store are fully assembled and ready to ride. 

 

FAQ

The bike looks great… but what exactly is a Gravel Grinder?

Think of it as similar to a CX (Cylcocross) bike built for Endurance riding that is also perfect for all-conditions commuting over distance.

TYRES

Gravel bikes run around a 35mm wide tyre (as opposed to your standard Road bike at 23-25mm). This helps protect against punctures, improves comfort in the saddle and they’ll also leave you less fatigued after riding along bumpy surfaces all day.

GEARING

Gravel creates more rolling resistance so these bikes get more emphasis at the lower end of the range. For the Granite we’ve chosen the latest Shimano Claris FC-2450 50/34T Compact crankset with an 11-32t cassette for solid all round performance.

FRAME

Both Gravel bikes and CX are built tough for harsh treatment, and feature clearance for the bigger tyres and front/rear rack mounts for bike trekking and loaded commuting.

Although similar to Cyclocross bikes, Gravel-grinders feature more relaxed geometry with a slacker head tube angle, a lower centre of gravity and longer tube lengths for a more comfortable ride over longer distances. Cyclocross bikes are designed to accelerate fast and corner quickly at lower speeds, but this can feel a bit ‘twitchy’ on endurance rides along wide open gravel roads.

If you’re looking for the ultimate commuting bike, the question you need to ask yourself is: Do I punch out lots of straight miles or do I ride shorter trips fast while dodging lots of traffic..? If the former, you’re in the right place. If the latter, check out our CX.

BRAKES

Most quality gravel-grinders feature disc brakes as they perform better in all conditions. If you’ve ever ridden to work in the wet, you’ll understand how this translates to a safer commute.

Areas with a shipping surcharge:

Shipping of bikes is currently a flat rate of $9.99 to most of the Australian mainland and Tasmania. Due to the high costs of postage and on-forwarding for large items to remote island locations, these areas will incur a surcharge (Reid subsidise all shipping but cannot cover it all in all cases). The surcharge will be applied to your cart during the checkout process.

For more information, please email our customer service team on support@reidcycles.com.au

We do not ship outside of Australia. If you live overseas and would like to buy a Reid bike please visit our international website to view a list of retailers.

Estimated dispatch & shipping times:

Orders for items that are currently in stock are usually dispatched within 1 to 2 working days (business days only). You'll receive an email with tracking information once the order has been dispatched. Delivery times can vary depending on the size of the items ordered, with bulky goods taking longer than smaller items. Please note, some orders may be subject to a security check prior to being dispatched which may cause a delay. The below delivery estimates are calculated from the time of purchase:

The store will receive your order, assemble your bike and give you a call within 2-5 days advising when your bike can be picked up. Whenever possible, we recommend collection in store.

Assembly:

Remember that bikes are shipped boxed, and 85% assembled. The final assembly required includes the installation of the handlebars, front wheel, pedals and saddle, adjusting the brakes and tuning the gears. We recommend that the assembly is done by a qualified bike mechanic or another suitably qualified person. Damage caused by an incorrect assembly (such as installing the pedals the wrong way around) is not covered by your warranty.

Please see our 'How to guides' for assembly instructions if you do choose to assemble a bike yourself.

Delivery method:

It's always best to send to an address that always has someone in attendance, such as a business address. You may also want to give our courier an 'authority to leave' instruction. Only give us an 'authority to leave' if you're confident that the delivery will be safe. Otherwise, the courier can leave a 'sorry we missed you' card, allowing you to arrange re-delivery.

  • A lifetime Warranty on every Reid frame we sell (excluding our carbon fibre range)
  • A lifetime Warranty on all rigid forks (excluding our carbon fibre range)
  • A 2-year Warranty on all Carbon Fibre products, suspension forks, Shimano components and Mavic wheelsets
  • A 2-year Warranty on all other non-consumable components
