Keep your dollar going further with the Polygon Heist 3.0. The two standout features on the bike are the improved Acera drivetrain combined with the disc brakes.
Shimano Acera groupset has improved significantly for 2013 with an additional 9th gear giving your gearing additional range as well as improved durability. The other standout component is the disc brakes. Having disc brakes, is a very beneficial as not only do they provide reliable braking performance in any weather conditions, but they also separate the wheel system from the brake system. Remember when you were a kid and your brakes would shudder as you tried to slow down whilst going down a big hill? That was because the wheel wasnt completely "true" or straight, and everytime that part of the wheel went past the brake pads, you would get that feedback into the brake levers. By adding a disc brake to the system, ensures that it is always true and provides a much better braking feel. The addition of the disc also means that the rim can be lighter as it doesnt have to provide the braking surface anymore. This allows you to accelerate more, and with less effort.
The Polygon Heist 3.0 is the complete package - 27 gears and super reliable disc brakes, all for under $450 delivered!

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 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.
All the tools required to assemble the bike are included.
If you are unsure of how to assemble this bike after viewing the instruction videos above, we recommend you ask for help from someone with knowledge of how to use basic hand tools.
Please note, that all bicycles whether purchased online or instore, are mechanical devices and need to be serviced regularly to ensure proper functioning.

After having my beloved Mongoose stolen I started the search for a replacement. Looked at a few local bike shops, but could just not beat the value and quality of the Heist 3.0.
Although I could not test ride it, the 14 day money back guarantee is what made me buy it.
Once arrived it took me a good 30-40 minutes to assemble (amateur). And once on riding I must say it is the best bike I have ridden! Had to slightly adjust the gears as they were making some noise, but being an amateur bike person I figured this out easily.
Very smooth, comfortable and easy to ride. Nice and light, and with my commute to work involving footpaths and road it works perfect.
Looked at a comparable Giant bike which was on sale at Anaconda for about $700 which I did ride, and the Heist at $550 I must say was a bargain!
Great Bike & Great Price

Bought this bike after looking at second hand ones and not being happy with what was out there. Looked at a few bikes online and found the Heist 3.0. Asked the guys at bicycles online a few questions about the bikes and they got back to me very quickly. Arrived quickly and easy to put together (though got my boyfriend to do it!). Took it for its first ride on the weekend and very happy with the feel of the bike!!!! Recommend bicycles online and the Polygon brand.
Great first bike!!

I got this bike a month ago. Took 2 days to arrive after I ordered it. Assembly took me 30 mins (unpacking included). Rode it straight away, was really nice and smooth. Only issue was the front wheel needed the spokes adjusted, had a little wobble, took it to a local bike store to get fixed. It has been great since then. I have been riding it to work 4 days a week.
Good bike for low price

Professional service, fast delivery.
Definitely can cost 100$ more plus freight. Happy so far with it.

Easy to assemble and rides well. Handlebars are a bit low for many people. I will need a new gooseneck and riser bars.
Good quality components, great tyres, fairly light with disk brakes.
Best bike for this price range

If you are in the market for a bottom price range bike but want all the features of a more expensive bike you must give this one a test ride. It was delivered quickly to the door and took me about 1/2 an hour to have it together and then I was off riding it around. The gears are very smooth and the disc brakes are good.
great bike great value

really quick delivery
really easy to put together as everything was almost done
really enjoyable with so many gears
Posted by Wayne on 22nd Feb 2014
Nice inexpensive bike sufficient for my purposes, good value. One dislike very flat handlebars tend to push the riding position forward.
Posted by Lee on 18th Feb 2014
The bike arrived only a few days after purchase not bad considering we live in country Queensland. It was easy to assemble but I seem to have a front reflector left over that just wont fit. Really comfortable and easy to ride. Overall I am very happy with the bike.
Very happy with the purchase
Posted by Jason Price on 29th Dec 2013
I purchased this bike to replace my 20 year old hybrid.
I visited several bike shops (big and small), looked at all the Australian based online stores and read through lots of forums. Polygon, while not a well known brand, seemed to be very good value and was getting positive feedback.
I've only done about 40 k's on it so far, but I have to say I'm extremely happy with the bike. It's good quality and all components perform very well.
I would give it 5 stars, but I had to adjust the brakes and the gears before the first ride, something I would expect to be set correctly before shipping.
Fast for a hybrid.
Front shocks perform better than expected.
Disc brakes work very well.
The saddle is very firm.
Pedals are fairly short.
Bicycles Online could have done a better job on the build.
