buycycle was founded in 2021 by Jonas, Florian, and Theo - three friends who met through their love of cycling. Back then, it was extremely challenging to get hold of affordable beginner bikes, especially pre-owned ones. When Jonas went to order his first triathlon bike, he didn't feel comfortable transferring money to a stranger on a local online marketplace, as he was unsure of whether the bike would actually arrive. From this experience, the idea for buycycle was born, and the three cycling enthusiasts were able to turn their passion into their profession. Today, the founders are thrilled to be working on buycycle’s vision of creating the world’s leading marketplace for high value pre-owned bikes, making selling and buying pre-owned bikes just as easy as riding them.
