Bikexchange.com is one of the oldest bike blogs still online today.

It was first founded by Jim Joyce as a place for him to write down his bike-related thoughts and collect some great links, how-to articles, cartoons, and much more. In December 2017, Bikexchange.com changed its owners! We are doing our best to gather and share more and more valuable information.

You will find everything you need to know about mountain- and road cycling. We include not only bike reviews but bike guides, how-to’s, general articles, and even bike cartoons. If you are looking for a great new bike or gear, you’ll find valuable information on this website!

Hey everyone! My name is Sam and I’m hooked on cycling! I’m 31 years old, and I’ve been riding actively for the past five years. Before that, I just didn’t see the appeal of it. I’ve achieved some excellent results through cycling, and I want to share my journey with you because I believe that everyone can and should do it as well.

Where Were We in 1996?

Old Bikexchange.com

This is what Bikexchange used to look like

Well, a lot has changed. BikeXchange was one of the pioneers in the cycling blog industry. It covered mainly entertainment news, ask the mechanic section, cartoons, race info, and much more.

You can find those bicycle cartoons here. Thanks to every contributor who has invested their time and effort to create this funny section of bike cartoons. You can see the bike cartoons here.

Bike books – BikeXchange also gathered several bike books. We preserved them only as a matter of preserving a chunk of our history. You can read those here.

Bike events – BikeXchange used to have an up-to-date bike events calendar that had its place back then. However, we believe that there are much better bike events pages online nowadays so we don’t cover it anymore.

Ask The Mechanic – Ask the Mechanic was a pretty good series of articles where readers had a chance to ask Andy Wallen any questions they had. We believe that today you can easily find solutions to your problems on Google, so we won’t update this section in the future.

Travel  & Tour Operators – BikeXchange used to gather tour operators all over the globe. Most of them are still active so you might want to take a look at their offers. It is an old list so you know that these sites have heritage and experience to fulfill your needs on different cycle tours. You can check the Cycling Tour Holiday list here.
