If you enjoy riding a bicycle but would like to make things a little easier then a new electric bike from Reid is the answer you have been looking for. Our Electric Bikes use a battery powered motor to give you pedal-assistance up to 25km/hr to help you ride further with less effort so you can get there faster and in better shape. Leave the car behind and experience more of the things you love about riding.

With the new Urban range, Reid and Shimano Steps deliver a sleek and cleverly designed eBike package to answer all the challenges of riding around your city or heading out on touring adventures.

This electric bike uses a battery powered motor to give you pedal-assistance up to 25km/hr to help you ride further, with less effort so you can get there faster.

The Urban+ electric bike features the Shimano Steps E5000 mid mount motor system. A mid drive electric bike offers more options in terms of gearing, smoother acceleration and lowers the centre of gravity of the bike giving a more stable ride over broken ground or when cornering. This benefit is really felt when riding an mid drive electric bike off-road or at speed.

This electric bike also features Trusted Shimano 9-speed gearing, with powerful hydraulic disc brakes and a reliable quality wheelset with puncture resistant tyres for the toughest city conditions.

Key Features: 

  • Smooth and powerful acceleration from the latest industry-leading Shimano Steps E5000 series mid-mount electric motor. This system will provide pedal assistance up to 25km/hr (in line with Australian pedelec regulations) for an impressive range of up to 125km on a single charge.
  • Custom hydroformed smooth-weld alloy frame with internal cabling to keep cables for gearing, brakes and electrics neatly hidden.
  • Trusted Shimano 9-speed gearing, with powerful hydraulic disc brakes and a reliable quality wheelset with puncture resistant tyres for the toughest city conditions.
  • Rugged and weatherproof mid-mount motor system for a low centre of gravity and reliable operation in all conditions.
  • Approx. weight 18.64 kg

eBikes FAQ

Q. How far can I travel on a full charge?

The range you can expect depends on how hard the battery is working. This will be affected by factors like the weight of the rider, how much luggage you’re carrying, tyre pressure, hills/terrain, road condition, wind and the level of assistance or power setting you use.

We will list the distance you can expect to ride under ideal conditions in the product details section of each Electric Bike.

As a general guide though, the range varies from around 60km per full charge for our 10.4Ah battery hub motor eBikes, up to 100-120km+ for our Shimano Steps and 14Ah Ananda mid-mount eBikes. The dual-battery system on the KADe can even cover 150km+.

Q. How do I charge an Electric Bike and how long will it take?

Simply plug the charger into a standard wall socket at work or when you get home. To charge the battery from 0% to 80% will take 2 hours, 100% in 4 hours. Most of the time though you’ll just need to top up rather than completely refill. Charging times are similar for the Shimano, Bafang and Ananda systems.

Q. What are the benefits of a hub motor style eBike?

For commuting and touring electric bikes designed for use on roads and paths, rear hub motors offer a more discrete, lighter and more affordable choice over a mid-mount motor design.

Bafang are the largest rear hub eBike manufacturer in the world and growing rapidly in Europe and the US. The motor is light and unobtrusive at only 2.9 kg, recharge time is quick and the range is good. Considering how affordable these ebikes are, a new electric bike now makes a lot of sense for more people.

Q. What are the benefits of a mid-mount motor style eBike?

The mid-mount position offers more options in terms of gearing, smoother acceleration and lowers the centre of gravity of the bike giving a more stable ride over broken ground or when cornering. This benefit is really felt when off-road or riding at speed.

Mid-drive motors are especially preferred by riders looking for more torque when riding (perfect for pinch climbs on a Mountain Bike). Unlike a hub-drive motor, the mid-drive motor directly drives the crank instead of the wheel. This has the benefit of multiplying power and allowing the bike to better take advantage of existing gears.

Q. Can I ride an eBike in the rain?

Yes, all of these units are sealed and made for all-conditions riding.

Q. Can I switch off the motor and ride it like a normal bike?

Yes. Remove the battery pack and it will feel very much like a normal bike.

Q. What does 'Pedelec' mean?

The most popular electric bike system in Australia is the pedelec (or pedal assist) system. You ride a pedelec by pedalling as normal, while the electric motor adds power to each pedal stroke - flattening out the hills and getting you up to speed with much less effort.

Q. How much does it cost to charge an eBike?

It depends on the battery, but as an example:

The Shimano Steps system uses a 418Wh battery. At 30c/kWh x 0.418kWh = 12.5c for a full charge. Costs are similar with the Bafang and Ananda systems.

100km for 12.5c and a fraction of the carbon output of a car. Yes, this is the future of personal transport.

Q. How often should I service my Electric Bike?

The same as we would recommend for any bicycle.

We recommend your electric bike is serviced during the first 3 months of ownership as components bed in. Frequency of servicing after that depends on usage and what maintenance you choose to do yourself in terms of caring for the chain and other basic tasks. A regular rider who does not perform any maintenance may benefit from servicing every 6 months. Click here for more information on servicing.

Q. How can I safely handle and use a Li-ion Electric Bike battery?

Lithium Ion batteries are a powerful technology that have given us handy cordless tools and devices from mobile phones and laptops, to power drills, vacuum cleaners and now electric bikes.

This is an increasingly common power source that is here to stay, and is safe if handled properly. Read our full safety guide here.

    Reid Urban Plus

    I've had a Reid Urban+ for a few years now and it has been a great bike.

    This is the one to get if you want a fast comfortable bike that can handle rough roads and a little bit of gravel.

    I use it for commuting, kid transport, shopping, and fun rides.

    My bike has the following upgrades

    * 180mm SLX front brake rotor

    * Maxxis ReVolt 47c tyres with thick tubes

    * PlanetBike 60mm full length fenders

    * Topeak rear rack

    * Speedbox


    * Fits 60mm fenders with 47c tyres

    * Double braze ons for rear rack and fenders

    * Comfortable and fast

    * Strong wheels


    * Underpowered brakes

    * Can't get a replacement derailleur hanger

    * Gearing is too high for loaded riding, needs a 36t or 40t cassette.

    I spent a long time researching and test riding different E-Bikes as i decided to sell my car due to the vicinity of work.

    I test rode many of the big brands of 2022 ranging from 2500-3700 dollars and was prepared to spend that much if i liked the bike.

    All of the bikes i tested were limited at 25 kph and all of them felt average in terms of the mechanical shifting.

    This bike even has lower spec'd running gear but in my opinion felt way better than any of the other big brands for more $$.

    Even on it's highest assistance mode it will still get 75km roughly which is, for some, the max range on eco modes.

    Been riding this to and from work with double panier racks about 8km each way and its honestly everything you need in an electric bike.

    I wouldn't waste time on a front suspension fork as you can run the tires on 40 psi and it's really smooth.

    All in all this is amazing value for money and it is literally no compromise when comparing bikes that are thousands of dollars more expensive!
