| 21/2/2017 6:16 PM Better value than Reid by TheGlebe - verified purchaser I have had 2 Messengers. First one stolen (I think because it looked much more valuable than it really was). Second purchase because I was so happy with the first. In between I had a Reid single speed - which was not nearly as nice (in fact it was rubbish). The Cell Messenger is a very good ride. If you take of a few of the naff bits of hardware/stickers/junk etc it can look very nice too. Grips, pedals and tyres are the nasty bits - but you can fix these for modest cost (and in your own time-frame). Everything else is more than acceptable - in fact: enjoyable. I think you could spend 3x Messenger price and not be as as happy.
