Dedicated to sharing the simple enjoyment of bicycling by providing high quality, accessibly priced bicycles to everyone.
BildaBike Was Established In 2009
Bildabike started as an effort to provide an affordable custom bike-building experience. At the time, that didn’t exist. Custom always translated to expensive.
After building relationships with reputable parts suppliers, the owner Daniel, was ready to hit the market. Streamlining the manufacturing and build process allowed BildaBike to cut costs considerably and pass those savings on to you, the customer. People are often surprised that BildaBikes are made with the same or better components than competitors, yet usually cost less.
Bildabike has grown a lot over the years. It started in the backyard as a college kid’s dream, and it quickly moved to a 600 sqft store, then to a 10,00sqft headquarters. Bildabike has built a solid local reputation in Charleston, SC where it was founded. If you’re ever in town, you’ll notice almost every college student is on a Bildabike. The bike corrals are filled with our unique brightly colored beach cruisers. You’ll see our bikes all over the College of Charleston campus.
In addition to custom bikes, Bildabike also developed a core line of “Complete Bikes”. While these bikes are not customizable, they’re still designed and produced in house. Bildabike developed these bikes in an effort to offer even more affordability. Not everyone wants or needs a custom bike, but they still want a good quality product. We wanted to make quality bikes more accessible!
To date, Bildabike has design and produced over 20 unique models and have even more on the way. Including our very first mountain bike and gravel bike!
Bildabike operates a large showroom on King St. in the middle of downtown Charleston. As of 2020 they also provide their unique products to over 100 bicycle shops around the country.
