Bought last week, definite cruising bike! Loving it. (Posted on 21/10/2019)
Real world bike Review by Jeff

I wanted a bike that I could ride around on and get a bit fitter, without taking out a personal loan. My Reid Vintage Roadster cost $270, is solidly built, looks great and does everything I want it to. (My legs are the weak link, but the Reid and I are working on that problem.) This is a fine bike at a sensible price and the only reason I've given it 4 stars for quality, is because there's always room for improvement. But really, I'm being picky. Thoroughly recommended.

Great bike! Review by PAC

I bought this bike 6 months ago and over this time have regularly ridden it to work and back (about 5 kms each way) 4 to 5 times a week. When I got the bike delivered (in an amazingly fast time) I then had it set up by a local mobile bike mechanic - a good idea unless one is right across setting and adjusting derailleurs etc.
I have really enjoyed the riding and had no problems with the bike at all. Nonetheless, the first few weeks I needed to bed the steering head in so I simply re-packed the steering head with grease and gently but firmly re-tightened it, perhaps about four times over a couple of months - anyway it is nicely settled in now. Each week I always give it a clean, wipe it down, lube the chain, check the tyre pressures and nip up the cables if necessary. With a little basic maintenance it has returned excellent reliability and enjoyable riding consistently for the last six months.
This is a very good bike as a nice easy ride, reliable commuter and highly affordable way to get out there and enjoy the outdoors, save money and get exercise. Another great thing about it is that you can just hop on it and go in your regular clothes (work or casual) and don't have to feel like you have to try and keep up with the lycra set! Everything about this bike says cycling can be simple, enjoyable and accessible. I love it! Get one!!

Excellent Service and cool bike! Review by Ricky

Service has been excellent with Reid Cycles. I live in Perth and was worried about delivery times but Reid was so efficient (forgot to tell my wife it was arriving!) and next thing you know it’s arrived. Free delivery helped as well.

I’m terms of the bike, love it love it love it. Comfortable to ride. Gear change is smooth and retro feel is cool.


It took my 45 minutes in total to put it together and this is with an 8 and 4 yr old ‘helping’ me out. Didn’t need the videos but it could have been faster if I had. Had to pump the tyres but all good.

It’s stored proudly in the study and I’ve taken it everyday since I’ve bought it.

I’m shortly buying my wife a bike too from Reid.

Nothing but a positive experience. Why buy in the store when it’s this convenient. (I did try the bike when I was in melbourne for work and so wasn’t totally buying blind)

Thank you Reid for an awesome bike and top service.

A six pack, two mates and one hour having fun assembling the bike and re-establishing our cycle roots of a long time ago and this 63 year old is back in the saddle and back on the road after a 20 year break. I bought the Reid Vintage $249 special and what a beautiful bike it is. I wanted old school, steel frame, mud guards and that sweet feel that only that steel frame gives. I'm back in my thongs, shorts and T-shirt and rolling along, smiling like a fool, once again. Thanks Reids Cycles for a fantastic machine at a remarkably low price. I couldn't be happier!

Still Surprisingly Good after 6 months Review by PD

I purchased this on sale about 6 months ago. For something so cheap I was not expecting much, I have a very nice carbon road bike and a couple of other big name bikes, so I was not expecting much from something that cost 1/40th of my road bike.

I ride a few kms to work every day and needed something a little more practice as I prefer to ride into work in my suit. The mudguards and chain guards made this one a deal.

I added on the front and rear baskets, this thing weighs a ton however is comfortable with a good riding position and is rock solid. I was not expecting the wheels to hold up so well over winter or the chrome not to rust. However both have been fine.

It comes with 12 months of servicing but it is so basic that there is nothing you can do at home really, there have been no issues with the gears bar a minor adjustment after the first few hundred kms. Give every thing a good tighten and grease now and again.

Two minor issues, grips they are cheap and nasty I would suggest they will perish soon. The stock brake pads are rubbish pull those out immediate and replace with a half decent set that work.

This has become a regular rider being around 80-100 km a weeks as it is great for shopping, coffee runs and going out on family rides. I would say after 6 months there is no reason this would last a long time if looked after.

as an ex grade racer for over 35yrs I just wanted a bike...no clipless pedals or exotic wheels and groupsets...just a bike to ride around the streets with my partner and her children. I fell in love with the look of the mens vintage roadster and ordered it online on sunday.

on Monday I got an email telling me it had been processed. on Tuesday morning I got an email telling me it was in the hands of the courier and Tuesday afternoon it was delivered to my door!!!!

an hour unpacking and assembling (the front mudguard was the most fiddly lol) and it was ready to ride. not a scratch on it, gears ran through fine, brakes worked and wheels were true. it looks better in the flesh than in the pictures and I would and will happily recommend this product and this company to anyone who will listen. thank you reid cycles.
