About bike-components

bike-components was started in November of 1997 by Marcus and Klaus, two students from Aachen, Germany. Our online shop went live soon after, in 1998, and the first orders were dispatched from the founders’ small student apartment. Since then, we have grown steadily together with our customer base and employ over 170 people. Our 20,000 m2 warehouse, proudly supplies over 300,000 bicycle enthusiasts with bikes, parts and accessories from a range of over 60,000 products by more than 250 brands. bike-components also operates a store in downtown Aachen. Here we offer a range of pre-configured bikes and a selection of parts, accessories and bicycle clothing. Our expert staff can help you start the process of putting together a bike tailored to your individual needs. You can also pick up their online orders and try on apparel before making the purchase.
