    Introducing the future of Ladies Sports Vintage bicycles - the Esprit. A vintage ladies bike with agile handling characteristics for nipping around the city. The Esprit also rolls effortlessly so you can comfortably take her for longer spins too.

    The Esprit is a classically inspired bicycle that has been stripped back to the essentials of contemporary design. For riders who love the Vintage style, but demand a quick and nimble bike built to cover distance every day - this is the bike to choose.

    This women's cruiser bike features a Vintage Style Hi-Ten Steel Frame, with carefully selected quality, lightweight alloy components to keep your ride fast and reliable. With balanced geometry that distributes your weight over both wheel axles, this Vintage bike offers nimble handling that makes you feel in control.

    Tektro Dual-Pivot caliper brakes make stopping a breeze, keeping you safe whilst riding around town or in traffic. Additional features like the Ladies Vintage Leather Style Saddle and Grips will have you feeling comfortable throughout your entire bike ride.

    Key Features:

    • Modern Shimano Tourney 7-speed gearing with Rapidfire shifters for simple and smooth gear shifting.
    • Lightweight Dutch style bike frame with step through design.
    • Thinner tubing, smooth TIG welding, machined headtube and recessed brake mounts to maintain those smooth, classic lines.
    • Quick acceleration and easy rolling from our durable and lightweight alloy double wall rims with high-grade Stainless Steel spokes.
    • Comfortable and long wearing leather style saddle and grips.
    • At only 13kg the Esprit is around 3kg lighter than other Vintage bikes available and very easy to carry. After something even lighter? Check out the Esprit Superlite.

      Not a smooth ride

      My husband recently purchased this bike for me to replace another one I had that was similar. Bought the small as I am 154cm and 65kg and unfortunately even with lots of adjustments the frame just does not feel right when riding. The front guard hits your feet as you ride/turn, the gears do not work smoothly, we enquired before buying if this would be okay for a child seat and we’re informed yes, however even being within the weight range with a child attached the bike cannot ride properly with the extra weight (85kg altogether roughly). The main things being turning and feeling stable on this bike is a nightmare. My husband emailed Reid to discuss what to do and being just over 30 days (2 days past) they were very unhelpful in their response on how to get a good fit with this bike and essentially I need a different bike. Reid have no constructive or helpful feedback and unwilling to help any further. Apparently the gears also need to be calibrated however this information was no where to be found and only came to light over email as 1st gear doesn’t work and changing gears is extremely clunky. Very disappointing customer service and I would be very hesitant to buy one of their bikes again. Unfortunately we are not in a state with one of their stores so can only look online. Would not recommend this bike unless you’re riding on completely flat and straight path and even still being within the height and weight ranges you may find it does not ride well. Looks great, doesn’t…

      I LOVE HER!!! SO so happy with this bike, she rides beautifully, looks so sleek and is the perfect mix of stylish and practical. It’s also so great to have smooth gears for those hills.
