Press Release: Polygon Bikes

Australia’s largest consumer-direct bicycle retailer, Bicycles Online has launched into the North American market as BikesOnline.com, in exclusive partnership with us at Polygon.

Based out of Sonoma County, CA, with warehousing in Los Angeles, BikesOnline.com is carrying our bike range as well as accessories and clothing. Similar to their Australian business, on BikesOnline.com there is a free 14-day test ride program on all bikes and free shipping to the lower 48 states on all orders over $50.

BikesOnline.com Managing Director, Jonathon Allara says “We are passionate about providing incredible value to not just the enthusiast but also the everyday cyclist. By cutting out the middle-man and selling direct to consumer we can pass on the savings to our customers, where they belong. Our business model allows customers to save up to 40% compared to an equivalent bike from a chain store.”

He continues, “Purchasing a bicycle online today has reached a point whereby it can be an easier and better experience than buying from a store. When browsing the Bikes Online website, we are able to provide all the information you need - We give you detailed specifications, competitor comparisons, customer reviews, media reviews as well as in-depth product videos. All of our bikes require only minimal assembly as they are pre-tuned by our mechanics before being shipped in our custom, heavy duty bike box to your door.”

We at Polygon Bikes own one of the largest and most innovative manufacturing facilities in the world, which is located in Indonesia - producing bikes not just for the Polygon brand, but also for other top tier US and European bike brands.

bigquotesPolygon has had strong ties with the USA for many years, with many of our pro riders and bike designers being based there. Whilst our riders have had great success at Crankworx and in winning the Redbull Rampage, it is exciting to entrust the Polygon brand to Bikes Online to continue to build the brand from the grassroots level.

For several years we have been working together with the team from Bicycles Online in Australia to grow the Polygon brand and market share. We believe that with their extensive bike knowledge combined with after sales support, fast warranty support and local knowledge provides an ideal partner for the brand.
Polygon Bikes Sales Director, William Gozali

 Nowhere near the claimed 40% cheaper than a comparable. Pretty disappointing.

 $3,500 for their DH frame and $5k for their low end complete build is not what I expected either.

 @Rubberelli: The DH bike looks like that Marin bike that everyone loves. . .

 @unrooted: Polygon owns Marin

 A YT Capra 29 AL Base comes with NX Eagle for $2599, a Polygon Siskiu N8 also comes with NX Eagle and retails for $2899. . . the YT comes with the Lyrik fork, SDG dropper and RS Superdeluxe shock, the Polygon comes with the Yari fork, an EXA Form Drive Dropper and Fox Float DPX2. . . I guess Polygon isn't even attempting to compete with YT.

 Seatstay pivots????, the horrors!
  • 2 2
 @unrooted: So those tubes on any frame connecting the chainstay to the front triangle are called seat stays. Tried multitudes of frames and placing a pivot next to reabrake always felt weird, brake jack, poor small bump performance, etc. The FSR style chainstay pivots on most great frame like Scott ransom, specialized, etc solve all those issues. You have that option as an engineer or go with a linkage system like giant, intense, pivot , etc. Comprende!

 @jorgeposada: Just wondering what that has to do with what I originally posted. . . The YT has a Horst Link pivot. . . or as you put it a chainstay pivot. . .

 @unrooted: I didn't even read your post, giving my 3 cents from 30 racing years on this reviewed frame in a bike forum. Seems like a crazy concept but it's going to be ok.

 you don´t pay shipping if you buy directly to polygonbikes :0 so it may compete somehow.. YT you pay a lot in the middle to get it in your front door

 Like how there are soo many options and great deals finally. 3-4 years ago your breaking out 5-6 k or nothing. Hopefully these companies follow up with good support. What is that saying CFO's live by,,, you can have the best product or best service. Trying to do both is not sustainable. Can there be a balance at least?

 @mae-fr: Shipping was free for my YT Capra 2019 which should arrive next week. Sorry !

 @unrooted good points - we have updated the prices on those bikes. We do have quite a few models and we do want to make sure we are competitive on all of them and the Capra is a fair comparison to the Siskiu. Do you see value in our 14 day test ride period and free shipping? If you have any other feedback, we would be interested to know.

 I guess they mean 40% cheaper than ordering a bike from an Australian chain store and having it delivered to the US. The kids bikes cost more than Specialized, ffs.

 I bought two.. no shop or online could touch the price. Great parts great bike. Even the box was exceptionally done no tape..velcro..ready to ride 20 minutes top. Would have been quicker but having to do tubeless setup took 15 minutes..N9 27.5.......2799.00 usd shipped got in 4 days perfect bike. The best part i got faster. Thanks www.bikesonline.com

Just say "bike shop",

 My favorite is when bike websites promote online sales. Which everyone knows those bikes do not get assembled correctly from consumers. I don't know why we want to promote the demise of bicycle shops.

 I'm surprised they have a full suspension model for $999.... that's a whole new price point for full suspension isn't it?
