If you're getting into commuting, fitness or just looking for a reliable, fun way to get around, you should take a very close look at the Condor! Available in flat bar and drop bar models!
- The Condor Flat Bar is a fun, fast and frugal way to get riding for fitness and commuting!
- The 14-speed Shimano Tourney drivetrain is durable, reliable and easy to use!
- Quando quick-release hubs with double-wall alloy rims give you light, strong wheels.
If you decide to upgrade to a carbon fibre racing machine later, you'll still love the Condor as a commuter, tourer, shopper or pub bike!
The aluminium alloy frame is light and stiff, while the steel fork gives vertical compliance for improved comfort, feel and durability. The shape of the bike puts you in a commanding, upright position for visibility of the road ahead and the traffic around you.
It has rear rack mounts, so you can easily install a rack to carry panniers, baskets or simply strap on your own bag. The threaded headset allow you to easily adjust the height of the handlebars as well. You can adjust it up to suit quick commutes and shopping runs or lower it for a more aerodynamic position for epic road rides. The frame comes in four sizes so you can get a perfect fit.
Bikes at this price point often feature an odd assortment of cheap, no-name components, but not the Condor. We carefully chose a package of parts that gives the best reliability and performance, while still keeping the price ultra affordable. The 12-speed gears come from Shimano, the biggest name in bike parts. The dual-pivot brakes are from Promax, another big name. Dual-pivot means that instead of old-fashioned brake calipers that lever off the central bolt, the brakes lever off two separate pivot points, increasing the braking power, feel and control. It also makes them easy to maintain and adjust. The wheels are double-walled aluminium alloy, so they're light and strong. We've chosen Kenda road race tyres in a standard 23c size. This means that they're durable and fast-rolling, with plenty of grip and control. The chain comes from KMC, one of the biggest and most highly respected chain manufacturers in the world. Other key features include the sealed bearings in the bottom bracket for minimal maintenance and the quick-release hubs on the wheels.
The Reid Cycles Condor is definitely the best value road bike in Australia under $300.Shop online or view the full range of bikes in store, built by our skilled mechanics and ready for a test ride!

- Superb Value-For-Money Review by Nigel

After 3 years of hard riding and (perhaps way too many) gutter-jumps the frame cracked but my sentiments haven't changed at all: the Condor was very reliable, surprisingly light and quite rugged.
I've since upgraded slightly to a Reid CX but if I was on a budget, I wouldn't hesitate to buy another Condor. (Posted on 22/09/2016)
- Awesome all round Review by Adam H.
Price Quality Value
However, I still know a good bike when I ride one and definitely know good service when I get it.
The shop; the service I received at the Adelaide shop was fantastic. There was no feeling of reduced service just because I was buying an entry level model and the advice was great. Then when I went to pick it up the service guy went to enth degree to make sure it was set up properly for me and everything was spot on. Highly recommend!
The bike; this bike is fast. I was surprised at the weight, the strength and the overall quality for the money. The gears are smooth, the build is solid and it really is a pleasure to ride.
Do not buy a crappy department store bike! Spend the extra few bucks and get some quality value for money.

- Good value for money, excellent customer service Review by Nesh
Price Quality Value
The service at Reid North Melbourne store was excellent. I did some test runs with several bikes before buying this one and the staff was very helpful.
There was an issues with the clip less pedals I bought with this bike and they gave me a refund with no fuss. Bought some more accessories from them with that.
It's still too early for me to say anything about the durability of the bike but I think this bike is good value for money, and their customer service is great. (Posted on 2/11/2014)
- Great performer, excellent value for money Review by Steve
Price Quality Value
I laugh watching those guys carrying bikes on their shoulders over the small patch of dirt road, which I easily ride and don't get me wrong I am not careless! I simply use and enjoy my bike with the freedom !
At the end of the day, everything depends on the Rider (with the big R) !
The only cons with this bike I see is the aesthetics and I would suggest to introduce other colours as Black&white can sometimes be boring... and yes please make that German eagle a little bit smaller :)
Finally, to all fellow riders, it really doesn't matter what bike you use as bike which is used is always better than the one which is collecting the dust in the shed !

- Last minute walk in Review by Rome_3
Price Quality Value
So my mate and I walk in to the Reid Brisbane store 10 minutes before closing looking to pick up x226 MTB. We were allowed to test 3 bikes and got the wheels changed on the bike he choose and picked all the he wanted and all within minutes shortly after close. (7pm was closing time)
Servers we great, considering we walked in last minute.
The X226 MTB ($270) quality was in fact just as good as my name branded Merida Matts 20 ($600) MTB, the only real difference is your paying twice the price for disc brakes. Great price for was you get for a MTB.
I’ve been riding on my Reid Condor drop bar rode bike for about 3 months now, rides from Brisbane to Sunnybank (about 6 times of a distance about 17kms)for a cheap bike it’s doing better than I expected. Even rides MT Cott-tha, wasn’t easy but again the cheap bike made it. Looking forwarded to upgrading my Rode bike to a Ospray elite or Falco Advanced. Highly recommend. (Posted on 10/04/2014)

Reid Cycles ships bikes, parts and accessories anywhere in Australia!
Free shipping of bikes is available to most metropolitan and some regional areas. We also combined shipping wherever possible to keep the price down. Once you have one or more items in your cart, view your cart, pop your postcode in and we'll give you the combined shipping price. We are currently unable to ship to overseas addresses, please contact our customer services team to enquire about distributors in your area.
We aim to keep the price as low as possible by shipping smaller items for free if they can be shipped with larger items. Helmets, shoes and parts most often ship for free with your new bike!
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 other suitably qualified person. Damage caused by incorrect assembly (such as installing the pedals the wrong way around) is not covered by your warranty.
Orders for items that are currently in stock are usually despatched within 1 to 2 working days. You'll receive an email with tracking information once the order has been despatched. Certain periods of the year are seasonably busy, with much higher volumes than normal. At these times, we still aim to despatch within 1 to 2 days, but deliveries may take a little longer due to our couriers' workload.
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, which is an instruction to say that there is a safe place leave to delivery, even if there is no one there to take delivery. 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 redelivery.
