Product Review (submitted on 6 October 2016):
I wasn't able to decide between the CX and the urban X2 bicycle.
The staff were very accommodating. I purchased the X2 initially and had it for about 1 week. I decided that the CX bike was more for me in the end (Nothing wrong with the X2 but personally i'm more comfortable with drop bars).

I returned the bike and and had no issues with the exchange. (Keep in mind the X2 was still in perfect condition when i returned it). The staff were very patient with the whole process and never made me feel bad for not being able to make up my mind.

For a budget bicycle, I was surprised how comfortable the ride of the CX was, even going over bad terrain (Gravel, Grass, sand, mud etc). The groupset is a lower end compared to other bikes i own but switching gears was very smooth and more than enough for my commuting needs.

I also plan on doing shorter rides with my family, with the little on a baby seat. Tested the bike out with the front baby seat (Yepp Mini) and is surprisingly well balanced to ride (Considering that this bike is a drop bar). The frame feels very sturdy and even with the added weight doesn't compromise the ride. The disc brakes work great, even whilst riding in the rain.

Rode just over 1000kms since getting the bike a month ago and Overall the bike does the job and works great!

Thanks Reid Cycles!
