Another shop bites the dust. Reid Cycles

Postby 4 1 3 0 » Mon Aug 21, 2017 11:06 am

Quite a while back I had posted that Reid cycles had closed its Cheltenham store. I Was going to the Doctors this morning and noticed ( Pedal Crew ) store also located in Cheltenham was closed up and emptied out. I'm not Sure but this store may have been a branch of St Kilda cycles ?

Reid cycles have closed a Sydney, Perth, Brisbane ans Melbourne store.

I have not heard details except they are active online selling in the UK so (speculating) it is possible that they are focussing on the areas giving them the best returns.

Their newsletter regularity has ramped up (which means it is becoming a flood and getting close to unsubscribe) though I have not spotted much online promotion recently.

Don't Reid make somewhat crappy bikes? Some bike shops refuse to service them due to their inferior build quality and sub par components.

I have a Reid Urban 3 with mostly Deore components. Frame is well made, solid but not light. No complaints.

So they've changed. How long has this lunacy gone on for??!?!? I mean how can they expect to stay in business selling bicycles that actually work longer than 1 year?!?!!? :-P
