Default Fast Attack options

I usually run 6 to 8-man Marine squads (depending on the size of the game) with 2 plasma or melta guns and a Power Fist seargent, I use a dreadnought here or there and my main HQ is a Librarian with a Plasma pistol and Veil of Time and I am thinking to diversify my army list, especially at higher point costs without having to fall back on my Grey Knights (it's a pain in the since most players I face are broken... I mean, chaos). My Traits are TYBB and Cleanse and Purify and my Major Drawback is Eye-to-Eye and my Minor Drawback is Have Pride in Your Colors... I was looking at some fast attack options as the elites don't really give me very much, I was thinking about Assault Squads or Bikes but I can only have one Bike Squad, so something like this:

Assault Squad
8 Marines
Melta Bombs
Plasma Pistol x2
Power Fist
230 points

Bike Squad
4 Bikes
Flamer x2
Attack Bike
Multi Melta
215 points

If the bike rules work like I think they do, then you can have 5 bikes in a squad (4+attack bike), if not, then just subtract one bike to be 183 points... Here's 3 1500 point lists, using the librarian, one with assault squads, one with bikes and one with both

Assault Squad List
Tactical Squad x5
7 Marines
2 Plasma Guns
