Reid Cycles Ride the Wave of Growing Demand for Ladies Vintage Bicycles
As ladies vintage bicycles grow in popularity across Melbourne and Australia as a fashionable means of transport for girls, leading manufacturer Reid Cycles continues to witness strong demand for their range of quality and reliable retro bikes.
Melbourne, Victoria (PRWEB) August 06, 2012
After spending more than a year on research and design, Reid Cycles introduced their range of quality, value for money ladies vintage bicycles to the market and in just over twelve months that have followed, are pleased to report a significant year of sales. A YouTube video just released demonstrates exactly why a vast number of girls are coming to Reid Cycles’ three retail locations and their online store for their very own version of this Australian classic, as it makes going to the shops, catching up with friends or riding to work an easy, comfortable and fun task.
As Owner of Reid Cycles, Mr James Reid exclaims, “We’re really excited about this range because it combines a cool mix of retro vintage styling with modern technology, making our vintage ladies bikes the perfect way to get around in classic style.”
“This Dutch style bike has always been very desirable and the trend that has been building nationally over the past few years is now steaming along. Being below the $300 price point and available in a choice of colours, very few other companies are able to come close to it, which is why they continue to fly out the door through all channels – be it our retail locations, online or through ebay.”
In addition to girls buying them for their sheer practicality, Reid Cycles have noticed that many customers are also deciding it’s a great way to treat themselves, whether it’s for their birthday, Christmas or just because. The company’s research has also found that the majority of girls are after a bike that’s a cheaper price, reliable and will be a good solid, basic option.
As Mr Reid explains, “In road bikes, you can start getting into more expensive, higher end components, but with these entry level ladies bikes, customers can choose from a single or 6 speed bike and get a quality steel step through frame and forks, coloured mudguards and chainguard, alloy rims, dual pivot brakes, rear bag rack, kick stand, not to mention a very comfortable saddle and they also have the option to customize their bikes with a basket and other accessories.”
“For extra peace of mind, every Reid Cycles bike also comes with a 15 year warranty on frame and forks and we offer complimentary brake and gear servicing for the first 12 months. They also get a free pump, lights, D-lock, drink bottle and holder and with helmets available from $30, everything you need to hit the road costs around $300.”
A distinct advantage of Reid Cycles’ ladies vintage bike range is that anyone interested in buying one doesn’t need to visit a store to be fitted - they simply need to provide their height to the company, which is why they are proving so popular to buy online from right across the country.
In addition to an ever-growing number of happy customers, Reid Cycle’s retro bike range has also attracted a glowing report from a competitive road cyclist on an Australian website.
“We were really excited to receive such a positive review on Sherides.com, particularly coming from someone who has ridden much more expensive bikes in her time. She found our 6 speed to be comfortable, reliable and in her own words, it does everything without the need to spend huge money.”
“The reason for the price differential mentioned is that Reid Cycles deal direct with our manufacturer in China and then sell through to the public without any middlemen involved.”
Reid Cycles’ range of ladies vintage bicycles continue to grow in popularity with girls living in Melbourne and right across Australia, in particular if they’re looking for a fashionable and reliable entry level bike that will provide an easy and comfortable way to get them wherever they need to go.
