DESCRIPTION

With the simplicity of a rigid setup at a value price, the Vice 1.0 is the perfect rig for exploring the benefits of Plus bikes.

Plus bikes climb like a mountain goat and grab the trail like a vice on the corners and descents for a fast, playful ride. These bikes are the perfect platform for the beginner or intermediate rider looking to really boost their trail-ripping abilities, while promising more advanced riders an agile bike that holds the ground like a DH rig.

PLUS BIKES - IS BIGGER, BETTER?

The new, innovative standard in mountain biking. Find out what Plus bikes are all about and why bigger is better »

 

Plus bikes are the latest progression in Mountain Biking. Sharing many of the characteristics of it’s bigger brothers, the Vice 1.0 is a great value entry to this new standard in trail riding:

  • Dialled performance trail geometry on a lightweight alloy frame.
  • Tapered headtube and front/rear rack mounts for those bike packing adventures.
  • Features a slack 68 degree head angle, 760mm wide bars and short 60mm stem for the confidence to hit technical sections at pace.
  • Shimano Altus 3x8 gearing (11-34T cassette) and a Suntour XCM triple chainset for reliable performance.
  • Rigid forks offer a unique riding experience – in addition to being virtually bombproof, they are lighter up front and climb with optimal efficiency.
  • The big rubber on a 27+ lets you tweak your setup to largely compensate for the loss of suspension in the front when hitting the rough stuff. The frame is suspension corrected though making the addition of suspension forks an easy upgrade down the track.
  • Promax Mechanical Disc brakes (180mm front, 160mm rear) for control and stopping power.
  • Big traction from 2.8” wide WTB Trailblazer tyres mounted to Alex MD40 27.5+ specific 40mm wide rims. These rims are tubeless ready so you can just add suitable tyres, sealant and some valve stems to enjoy even more traction and the reliability of riding tubeless.

The perfect setup for taking you on epic bike-packing adventure weekends or just getting out to blast some trails. Plus bikes push you to hold more speed, brake less and go wider on the berms. They also give you the traction to forgive a less-than-perfect line in all conditions, giving you the confidence to let it all hang out!

The Plus Bike progression in MTB lets both newcomers and more experienced riders get more from their ride – go faster with more control, climb steeper sections and negotiate trickier descents.

Plus bikes (27.5+) are the next big thing in Mountain Biking, and Reid is again the first manufacturer to bring you the latest gear at an amazing price!

Delivery

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.

Delivery

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.
