The 2017 Polygon Path 2 Disc is purposely build for the urban environment, where speed, agility, weight and comfort are paramount for the discerning rider. 

The ALX Alloy frame on the Path 2 Disc is formed using a process called "hydroforming" which gives each individual tube on the frame a specific shape and eliminates any excess unwanted material which results in a very light weight frame. This type of frame is generally seen on more expensive bikes in the market. The bike is constructed using a geometry that provides a slightly more upright riding position - allowing the rider to easily view upcoming obstacles or traffic.

The fork on the bike is now also made from Aluminium, this reduced the overall weight of the bike compared with typical steel or cromoly forks.

Of course, should you want, there are rack mounts on the frame – suitable for mounting luggage racks or babyseats.

With the new upgraded brake system for 2017, the Path 2 Disc is now much easier and manageable thanks to the well-known benefits of Disc Brake technology. Disc Brakes separate the rim from the brake surface, so that any of the usual pulsation and surging you get from typical rim brakes is eradicated. Instead the braking performance is smooth and consistent no matter what the weather conditions.

A 24 speed Shimano Altus / Tourney group set provides the Path 2 Disc with ample gear range to conquer any hill around town. Large 29"wheels with city-specific tyres mounted on double wall alloy rims give this bike plenty of grip at all times – you’ll feel comfortable and in control even whilst cycling at speed.

Completing the Path 2 is an Alloy stem, handlebar and seat post including a super popular, ergonomic Entity saddle

Just make sure you keep the box so it can be re-used to send it back. Click here for more information. 

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.

How does my bike arrive? Bicycles Online

Whilst your new bicycle will have already gone through our Pro Build process, you will still need to complete some minor final assembly steps when you take your bicycle out of its box.

Please follow the video playlist below to correctly complete the setup of your new bike:

 

Assembly Time:

  • 10-15min - You have assembled bikes before
  • 15-25min - You are mechanically handy
  • 30-40min - Never assembled a bike and working with tools isn't your thing

 

Unboxing your bike:

Start by carefully opening the top flap to expose the contents. You will see the bike with plenty of protective packaging and next to the rear wheel, the saddle & seatpost, a small cardboard box where your pedals, tools, bell and reflectors are. If you ordered any other products with the bike, it is likely they were placed on the bottom of the box as well. Remove all the loose items before pulling the bike out of the box and gently placing it on the floor.

Keep the box and all the protective packaging found on the bike in case you choose to change frame sizes, upgrade/downgrade the bike, or return the bike for a full refund under the 14 Day Test Ride Policy.
