Careers

Back in 2008, Krish and I (Gokul) were colleagues in a software company. Tea, sweets, and table tennis filled up the gaps between creating a magnificent ERP system. Then it happened; we got bitten by the cycling bug. Weekdays were about commuting to work, weekends were about eagerly waiting for long rides. But in spite of all the joy, it was a struggle because of the lack of a good ecosystem and professional bike shops.  That is when we decided to start a bike shop to ensure we and others could enjoy this beautiful activity.  

In Aug 2009, we started operating from a friend's apartment. The month after, we moved to a new location - an unused cement godown in Kondapur. The initial years were a stark contrast to our air conditioned software offices. For the first one year, we ran the store part time, juggling the bike shop with our software jobs. Eventually in 2010, we quit our jobs and started running TBA full time.

Over the last decade, the team has grown bigger. The store has earned the name as a trusted store offering quality service to customers. In addition to selling and servicing bicycles, TBA now also offers Coaching, Bike Fit and Bicycle Tours.
