Product Overview

Reid Rapid Flat Bar Road Bike

If you're getting into commuting, fitness or just looking for a reliable, fun way to get around, you should take a very close look at the Rapid! Available in flat bar and drop bar models!

  • The Rapid Flat Bar is a fun, fast and frugal way to get riding for fitness and commuting!
  • The 14-speed Shimano Tourney drivetrain is durable, reliable and easy to use!
  • Quando quick-release hubs with double-wall alloy rims give you light, strong wheels.

If you decide to upgrade to a carbon fibre racing machine later, you'll still love the Rapid as a commuter, tourer, shopper or pub bike!

The aluminium alloy frame is light and stiff, while the steel fork gives vertical compliance for improved comfort, feel and durability. The shape of the bike puts you in a commanding, upright position for visibility of the road ahead and the traffic around you.

It has rear rack mounts, so you can easily install a rack to carry panniers, baskets or simply strap on your own bag. The threaded headset allows you to easily adjust the height of the handlebars as well. You can adjust it up to suit quick commutes and shopping runs or lower it for a more aerodynamic position for epic road rides. The frame comes in four sizes so you can get a perfect fit.

Bikes at this price point often feature an odd assortment of cheap, no-name components, but not the Rapid. We carefully chose a package of parts that gives the best reliability and performance, while still keeping the price ultra affordable. The 14-speed gears come from Shimano, the biggest name in bike parts. The dual-pivot brakes are from Promax, another big name. Dual-pivot means that instead of old-fashioned brake callipers that lever off the central bolt, the brakes lever off two separate pivot points, increasing the braking power, feel and control. It also makes it easy to maintain and adjust. The wheels are double-walled aluminium alloy, so they're light and strong. We've chosen Kenda road race tyres in a standard 25c size. This means that they're durable and fast-rolling, with plenty of grip and control. The chain comes from KMC, one of the biggest and most highly respected chain manufacturers in the world. Other key features include the sealed bearings in the bottom bracket for minimal maintenance and the quick-release hubs on the wheels.

The Reid Cycles Rapid is definitely the best value road bike in Australia under $300.
