Bikexchange is one of the oldest bicycle-related sites still online today. It was first founded by Jim Joyce back in 1996 as a place to write down his bike-related thoughts and collate information, how-to’s, cartoons, and much more.
THEN & NOW
Bikexchange began in 1996 as a bike blog with a vast collection of information and articles provided by fifty contributors. In 2017 the site relaunched after a few years of dormancy. Fast forward to 2021 where the team is made up of five individuals across three countries with broad skills and knowledge bases and a shared passion for cycling.
At Bikexchange.com, we aim to provide comprehensive and unbiased cycling knowledge to as many cyclists as possible.
Whether you are in the market for a new bike, new equipment, or are curious about the latest bike tech, we endeavor to provide you with extensive and transparent reviews and information.
In an expansion of our site, we have teamed up with over 100 brands from 15+ retailers who sell their bikes and gear globally to bring you the best deals as well as accurate reviews and information on the latest developments in the cycling industry.
We are always on the lookout for new partners and collaborators, so if you are interested in joining our team, take a look at our careers page.
