The Bike Affair was founded by Gokul Krishna and Krishnendu Basu, who were colleagues at a software company in 2009. During their lunchtime conversations, they often talked about their shared passion for bicycles. However, Krish soon realized the lack of quality services and accessories for riders, which led to the inception of the idea for a store that could provide the necessary support to the cycling community.
On August 15th, 2009, The Bike Affair opened its doors as part of the Independence Day Ride, initially operating only on weekends. After a year of establishment, Krish and Gokul quit their software jobs to focus on The Bike Affair full-time.
Currently, The Bike Affair has a physical retail outlet located in Kondapur, Hyderabad, and serves riders throughout the country via its e-commerce platform. The company provides not only sales and bicycle services but also Bike Fit, Coaching, and conducts Bicycle Tours worldwide.
Sampath, who started as an intern while pursuing his graduation in 2015, currently leads the eCommerce platform. The Bike Affair has a dedicated team to attend to riders' needs at the store. However, visitors are advised to pet their store dog, Hitler, at their own risk, as she requires constant attention and may demand continuous petting.
Our current team at the retail store consists of Arbaaz, Hikmath, Raman & Sailendra.
