The Polygon Heist 2.0 29er hybrid bike is an all-purpose, all-terrain bicycle that's comfortable and efficient both off-road and on. It's perfect for commuters looking to get into MTB or those seeking a comfortable bike for long distance rides on varying terrain.

Like all of the Polygon Heist bikes, the Heist 2.0 features a reinforced double butted alloy frame, with smooth-welded and hydroformed top and down tubes for a lightweight, responsive ride. The SR Suntour NEX fork offers 63 mm of suspension travel for confidence in downhill descents and rougher roads. It even has fender mounts so you can stay dry in the rain. 

The 8-speed drivetrain offers 24 gearing options for climbing, accelerating, and reaching top speeds, and the Shimano FD front derailleur and Shimano Altus 8-speed rear derailleur will suck up chain slack to keep shifting seamless. New upgraded Shimano M-315 hydraulic disc brakes provide a seamless and responsive feel and will safely slow the bike when needed.

The bike rolls on a set of durable Polygon double wall alloy wheels wrapped in puncture resistant Schwalbe Smart Sam tyres. The 2018 Polygon Heist 2.0 hybrid bike is an all-purpose, all-terrain bicycle great for light off roads, commuting, or fitness riding.

The bike will provide years of trouble free, efficient cycling and has a lifetime warranty on the frame and full manufacturer warranty on all parts.

We understand how important shipping is once you click "buy now", that's why we have the following policies

Australian Warehouse

All products are in stock and ready to ship from our Sydney warehouse (with the exception of preordered bikes, which have the dispatch date illustrated)
 

Next day dispatch

All orders received by 5 pm AEST will usually be dispatched the following business day. If an order is placed on the weekend or public holiday, please note dispatch will usually be the next working day. For tracked shipments, please allow 12 hours for tracking to begin.
 

Shipping of Parts, Accessories and Apparel

Economy Shipping

There is free delivery available on all small parcels Australia wide using tracked services of Australia Post or Fastway, no minimum order value required! Estimated delivery time is 4-9 business days. 

Express Shipping

We do also offer Express Shipping for a small additional fee on parts, accessories and apparel orders. Estimated delivery time on Express Shipping is 1 to 4 business days.
 

Shipping of Bikes

Shipping of bikes and other bulky goods is free to 85% of residences in Australia. However, some postcodes incur a surcharge starting from $29. 

Once shipped you will be issued a consignment number which can be used to track your parcel. We use Direct Freight Express for deliveries and you can track your delivery by calling 1300 347 397 or online at www.directfreight.com.au

 

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. 

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.
