Americancycle.com Bike Sales History

Americancycle.com started at the very beginnings of the BMX and Freestyle revolution in 1980. I worked at my fathers brick and mortar bike shop as a bike mechanic and in bicycle sales. During high school I worked after school and weekends for several years. With so many years of experience I became a highly skilled bike mechanic and have repaired thousands of bikes over the years. A friend of mine across the river started a BMX Mail Order company and was doing quite well, sales wise. He was selling bikes and bike parts all over the country and worldwide. At the time GT bicycles, Haro Bicycles, Elf Bicycles, Redline, Hoffman bikes and Hutch bikes were among the top sellers.

American Cycle Express started putting full page advertisements in BMX Plus and Ride BMX magazine and sales were very good. We hired some good people to help with all the telephone calls and shipping all the boxes out. We started long before Danscomp, J&R and many other bike mail order operations. When the internet formed long ago and you could advertise on a website, I was fascinated at the marketing possibilities of worldwide sales potential. American Cycle then became a .com company. Being a .com company is not easy and we have gone through several website changes so that we can support eCommerce changes and increase our visibility. You can now easily find the bikes and bike parts you are looking for using the search box at the top right corner of every page. If you need bike repairs or anything for your bike you can find us in Johnson City New York. You can also checkout our BMX website acebmx.com.

With the inspiration I got from my friend at Wes BMX to facilitate my interest, I dedicated my life to helping out my customers. We are now starting to see the potential of electric bike sales and we now sell ebikes and ebike replacement batteries. I am a environmentalist and believe we all should recycle, save our Earths resources and get more people riding bicycles.

Today we are selling complete bikes and bike parts to all parts of the world. SE Racing, Sunday, Stranger, GT, Fit, DK, Avent, Kink, Cult, Verde, Redline and Haro are some of our complete bike brands. As far as bike parts we like Profile Racing, Insight, Elevn, Box, Bombshell, Snafu, Primo, S&M, Odyssey, Shimano, Haro, Redline and Cliq to name a few. We try to stock mainly the best parts for the job and we put as much helpful product information as possible on our website. All this makes getting the parts you need easy and fast.

We are always looking to improve so that our customers are happy with our service. If you feel you can help us in some way please email your details.

Search Engine Optimization and website content management are some of the areas we could use some help maintaining. We are also looking for a operations manager to help handle the huge surge in sales in 2020 triggered by the Covid19 Pandemic that got people more interested in outdoor activities. I hope you enjoyed reading about Americancycle.com bike sales history.
