What We Do!
I founded Bike-On.com in the spring of 1999. I had been a handcyclist for years by then and always had an interest in sports, fitness and business. More than 20 years in the corporate finance world, and earlier business ventures in the fitness industry prepared me for the business side of things.

We began selling handcycles to friends in Rhode Island, then to some regional non-profit organizations. Soon enough though, we were contacted by a man in Israel who wanted to buy a handcycle from us. Suddenly we thought, wow this is serious!
Within a few years I left my job in corporate finance to work from home on this venture. Lynn followed a few years later. During that time I met Andy Barker. Andy “the tool man” was a real find. Andy bartered a handcycle he built for a set of Zipp wheels. We became fast friends, and Andy helped build our presence in the handcycling world. Sadly Andy passed away in 2010, but he left a real mark with us and with the handcycling community at large.
Over the years we have attracted the best sales representatives and mechanics in the industry. To a person, our staff represents the highest level of product-based knowledge, real life experience and caring attitudes. We go the extra mile for our customers and strive to be a leader in our market.
Bike-On is now poised to grow while serving our customers to the fullest extent possible. We have a full showroom displaying most of the products we sell. Though not a retail store, we do enjoy meeting customers here for one-on-one appointments, many of whom travel hundreds of miles to spend some time with us and make crucial trials and comparisons.
