Vintage Ladies Deluxe Bike: c/o Reid Cycles
photography: my boyfriend

I had the pleasure of receiving this absolute stunner of a bike the other day from Reid Cycles! How cute is the vintage charm of this bike- I fell in love with everything from the sleek cream-coloured tyres, to the tan handlebars and saddle, and of course the front basket! Back in the good old days of the 50s and 60s, bikes had a much more simple, minimalistic aesthetic whilst keeping all the essential functional components.

The bike was also really comfortable to sit on and ride as well. The bike feels light, and smooth and easy to navigate. If you're sick of taking your car through narrow laneways, bumper to bumper traffic not to mention finding parking, this gorgeous bike is a much needed alternative to save you stress (as well as money!) You can take it to the beach, the flower markets, brunch, quick stop at the groceries....the possibilities are endless!

Reid also offer free delivery for orders over $50 to most areas. They have several locations all over Australia, in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Brisbane. You can even come instore to test ride or receive servicing.

The Vintage Deluxe comes in a variety of colours (I've chosen black, but there's also baby blue, coffee, mint green and powder blue) This is not the only vintage jewel available from Reid Cycles. See their full range of vintage bikes here.

Now onto some more photos!

Now onto some of the finer specs of the bike (the reasons why this bike functions so well!)
The bike features a Shimano Nexus 3-speed hub which means you can switch gears easily and smoothly. For example, when you're going up a hill, or rolling up to traffic lights.

A beautiful tan coloured saddle to prop your butt on, it's so comfortable as well!

How gorgeous as these thin cream-coloured tyres? The bike has colour-matched mudguards, chainguard and rear parcel rack (I chose the black version) which helps achieve a really sleek, aesthetically-pleasing look. The lightweight aluminium frame is a classic feature of a retro-style bike, plus it means it's so easy to move the bike around because it's not very heavy at all.

The front basket is an additional feature you can add if you wish. It's a great spot to put in a little handbag as you're riding to the markets!

What do you think of vintage style bikes? :)

  4. What a cute bike! I love those cream tires. I have a road and mountain bike that I just about wear out every 6 months and have to take in for repairs, so I feel that something this cute wouldn't deserve to have me as it's owner... haha! But it's so cute with these photos you've taken. (which are gorgeous--that light, those colors!) I love your green jacket, too.

  26. Love every outfit that your wore. Very sleek, stylish and refreshing indeed, something that I think is an helpful service for college students who loves fashion and everything in it.
