With summer only a month away for the northern hemisphere and with the sun already shining, we give you the rundown on why you should be riding a REID Ladies Classic this summer…
Dress to Impress
A step-through frame (the swooping top tube on the Ladies Classic) not only makes it easier getting on and off your bike but also means your choice of attire won’t be restricted! That lovely off-the-shoulder number you’ve had in your wardrobe all winter and have been dying to get out again, can enjoy the wonderful summer breeze on bike without worries. This classic style means you’ll sit in an upright, ergonomic position making for a more comfortable ride.
Adding to this, the chainguard protects the chain from damage and your dress/legs from the chain, no more rips and tears! Hop on and hop off with ease and a hair flick, knowing that you’re the best dressed rider around.
Let’s go to the beach beach
Get to and from the beach with ease with Shimano 7-speed gearing, making it easier to tackle any hills or headwinds you may come across. This epitome of modern parts meeting timeless design.
Now we know no one goes to the beach empty-handed, a towel, suncream, drinks, food and all your other essential bits, but where to put it all… a bike basket! Our bikes baskets come as an optional extra to our Ladies Classic, however a vintage bike would be a miss without one. Either placed on the front or the rear pannier rack for better balance, our bike basket is perfect for carrying all your beach bits and more, no more struggling to fit everything in your handbag.
Explore local areas
Not just for the beach, take your Ladies Classic further and explore new spots in your local area. Now your town is your oyster, why not try that new cafe or go find that hidden cliff spot. The Ladies Classics large comfy sprung seat means you’ll be able to ride further, longer and in more comfort, no sore bottoms around here!
So your outfit looks great, shoes, tick, off-the-shoulder dress, tick, hat, tick, you look great, you’re matching well, but what about your bike, you can’t risk ruining this ensemble over your transport. Well not to worry, our Ladies Classic comes in over 15 colours, so there’s bound to be colour just perfect for you and your wardrobe. Aqua and coffee and navy and white and red and pink and fuschia and yellow and lemon, watermelon, turquoise, sage and baby blue, cherry red, black and grey, no this isn’t Joseph’s Technicolour Dreamcoat, these are your choices of colours!
Now get out there and enjoy your summer by bike, oh and take a look at our Ladies Classic. : )
