Ladies Classic 7-Speed for her
The Ladies Classic 7-Speed has been our most popular model worldwide since we started 10 years ago. And there are good reasons for it. Inspired by the classic Dutch bicycle, our ladies vintage bike boasts the timeless elegant design. Nevertheless, even more spectacular, the Ladies Classic bikes are available in every colour of the rainbows to more! From the pastel shades such as mint green, lavender and sages to the more vibrant hues like pink, lemon and aqua. Our diverse range of colours means there’s the perfect colour for everyone.
Apart from the beautiful gloss finish, the step-through frame is a feature that is loved by female riders as their clothing is not restricted. They can cruise around wearing their favourite skirt or dress. Furthermore, they will feel comfortable on the extra-wide comfort saddle. Our Ladies Classic is no ordinary retro bicycle, either. Remarkably, it’s actually equipped with all the latest technologies including Shimano 7-speed gearing. This is modern parts meets timeless design. If you don’t know which gearing system best suits you, we have a handy blog on the basic knowledge about gears here which will get you right up to speed (pardon the pun).
Well, if a lady in your life hasn’t got a bike yet, Christmas is the perfect occasion to show them your love with this practical, wonderful gift. Check out this link to find out more about the Ladies Classic and where your nearest retailer is.
Vintage Kids’ bikes for the little ones
You must all remember fond childhood memories of learning how to ride a bicycle with your family and meeting up with friends down the park. How amazing that first taste of freedom is when you could venture out and explore new places. Well, we think this is the perfect experience that you should gift your children this Christmas. A bike isn’t just a bike; it’s a facilitator of freedom, fun and lifelong memories.
If you’re looking for a bike for your little one, it can get a little confusing understand which size to get and what’s best for your child’s abilities. At Reid, we make bikes for children aged two and up. Starting with the balance bike, a bike without pedals will teach them the art of bicycle balance and the confidence to move on a bike. Once they’ve mastered the art of balance, they are ready to graduate to a bike with pedals. With different frame designs and colours, our Vintage Balance Bike will offer your child not only a safe ride but a stylish ride this Christmas.
When your kids are capable of pedalling, our larger kids’ bikes in wheel size 16”, 20” and 24” have got you covered up until late teens. For those younger riders (aged 3-6), the Girls Classic 16” is equipped with the stabilisers. These extra wheels provide confidence for your kids to learn balance and ride safely. Notably, the stabilisers are easy to remove. So, little riders can feel the taste of freedom on two wheels once they’re confident to drop the stabilisers. Notably, our Boys roadster 16” offers two colours, black and navy blue, for the boys, while the Girls Classic 16” is available in 7 colours! We’re excited to launch some new colours (Lemon, Sage, Aqua and Lavender) just in time for the festive season.
For kids aged 7 – 9 years old, they will have heaps of fun on our larger wheel size Girls Classic 20” and Boys Roadster 20”. The dual-pivot alloy front brake is the same as the adult bikes, ensuring safe stopping power. Particularly, safety is always our top priority, for all the kids bike range, we guarantee to use high quality components. They are the same style as we use for the adult’s bike, just scaled down for smaller hands. Moreover, we’re so confident in our quality that we offer a lifetime frame and fork warranty on all our non-suspension bikes.
At Reid, we believe that when life is experienced on two wheels, we become healthier, more mindful, more focused people. Hence, we believe that gifting your beloved one a bike on Christmas, or any other occasions, must be one of the best presents ever. Hopefully, you are inspired with our Reid bike range for this festive season!
