Bikexchange is one of the oldest bicycle-related sites still online today. It was founded by Jim Joyce back in 1996 and served as a place for him to write down his bike-related thoughts and round up information, how-to articles, cartoons, and much more.
Going Strong Since 1996
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 2023, the website is led by a team of five individuals across three countries with broad skills and knowledge, as well as 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.

James is relatively new to the scene of cycling. Like many of us, he cycled as a kid, but ‘life got in the way’ as an adult, and for a long time, he couldn’t find the inspiration to get back on the saddle. Recently, however, James discovered the world of eBikes which reignited his spark. He is the ‘tech nerd’ of the bunch who likes to be fully informed before making a decision, especially when it comes to new investments. James has lived as a digital nomad, working in SEO, online poker, and sales. He is proudly responsible for the ins and outs of eBikes.
