Your new flat bar road bike needs to be light and stiff for efficiency, have good fit and kit for comfort and feature reliable, durable components. The 2015 Osprey Flat Bar Road Bike ticks all the boxes, making it one of the best value road bikes in Australia.
- The speed of a road bike, with the comfort of flat bars!
- The 16-speed 2015 Shimano Claris drivetrain is durable and reliable, with integrated gear and brake levers
- Quando quick-release hubs with Alex double-wall alloy rims give you light, strong wheels.
The 2015 Osprey is perfect for experiencing the speed and efficiency of a high-end road bike without sacrificing the comfort and control given by flat handlebars. Best of all, the bike comes at a very affordable price. It's perfect for all-day epic rides, training rides and hill climbing. Its rear rack and mudguards mount mean that you can easily set it up as a fast commuter or tourer. It's also available in a drop bar version if that suits your style better!
The 6061 aluminium alloy frame comes four sizes to give you a great fit. The frame is light, yet has excellent lateral stiffness for power in the sprints and the climbs. The carbon fibre fork provides a degree of vertical compliance to reduce road buzz while still giving precise handling.
The Alex double-walled aluminium alloy rims are light and strong. They're tough enough to suit an every day commuter, but light enough to enjoy long distance endurance rides or hill climbs. The Quando hubs are serviceable and adjustable for exceptional durability.
A 42/52 tooth crankset, combined with an 8 speed rear cluster, gives a wide, evenly spaced range of gears. Shimano M-310 shifters and Shimano 2300 deraileurs give outstanding reliability and performance. The Tektro dual-pivot alloy caliper brakes provide great stopping power, excellent modulation and easy adjustment. The rapidfire pod shifters allow for quick shifts without moving your hands away from the brake levers. Sealed bearings in the bottom bracket and a threadless 1-1/8" headset make for minimal maintenance.
The whole package has been chosen for maximum value, durability and performance, making this the best flat bar road bike you can buy under $599.

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.
Please contact us if you have any questions.
