Product Description

Flatbar road bikes are an ideal entry point into road riding or commuting. The lightweight frame and road bike components will let you keep up on the road, whilst the flat bar handlebars will help reduce the stress on your back and neck. 

Polygon have once again raised the bar for 2013, making significant improvements on the 2012 series. The front fork has changed from Cro-Mo Steel to Aluminium, which drastically reduces the weight of bike and maintains the feel in the front end. 

Any flat bar road bike should be fitted out with road bike components, and the F1.0 is completed as such, rather than resorting to mountain bike components and forming a hybridised version of a fitness bike. For a rapid commute at a reasonable price there is not better bike than the Polygon Helios F1.0.

Shipping

Shipping of bikes is free to 97% of residences, however some remote postcodes incur a surcharge. Please click here for a list postcodes and surcharges

Once your order is placed we require one business day before the bike can be shipped. For estimated shipping times, click here

We do require a signature upon delivery, for this reason we recommend business addresses or where someone will be present on the day of delivery. You can leave special instructions (eg leave on porch) however you will need to assume all responsibility without a signature. 

We cannot ship to PO Boxes. For full shipping details click here.

14 Day Test Ride

We’re so confident that you’ll love our extensive range of bikes, that we’ll let you ride one as your own for a full 14 days and if you don’t like it, simply e-mail us at sales@bicyclesonline.com.au and we’ll pick it up from you, free of charge! Just make sure you keep the box so it can be re-used to send it back. Click here for more information. 

Free Pro Build valued at $99

All of our bicycles come with a Free Pro Build valued at $99. This means that your bicycle will be pre built by our professional mechanics. For your convenience, safety and comfort all our bikes are fully assembled and test ridden prior to delivery. The bike is then packaged back into a box for secure shipment.

 

When your bike arrives, all you have to attach is the front wheel, the handlebar and pedals, everything else has been done – the headset has been adjusted, wheels trued, pedals and seat post greased, brakes and gears calibrated, and the tyres have been pumped up (please note upon arrival, in some cases you may need to add more air to tyres).

Most companies simply sell you the bike as it comes from the factory, which will require significant know-how to get your bike on the road. Currently we are the only Australian company providing this service, and have the 14 day test ride to back it up.
