So who is Mountain Bikes Direct?
Over 70,000 orders and counting!
We're four young Aussies, working since 2012 to bring you all the latest MTB goodies at globally competitive prices!
Collectively we’ve spent a lot of time in the industry and know a thing or two about mountain bike gear. Michael and Tim founded a premium mountain bike store in Brisbane, starting out from underneath the family home while Michael was still in high school, and building it into an iconic retail store with a cult following. Then of course boy meets girl, and so Jen and Mel both joined the scene in the years that followed and worked on various parts of the existing store.
As fun as running a bike shop can be, we soon realised that what got us really excited was selling online - we can offer more great stuff, at better prices, to a much larger crew of riders!
It also gives us more flexibility in our lives while still creating a great business. This is why you might get a response to an email at 2am - because Tim and Mel are currently living in Mel’s native Canada to spend a few years closer to family with their young daughter. Jen and Michael spend their time on the beautiful Gold Coast, mixing up time on the trails with time chasing their two little girls on the beach!
We’re proud to be an Australian business that makes it possible to buy locally at prices that are globally competitive. We aim to compete with the big overseas online retailers by working closely with our suppliers, organising some very awesome deals and selling to you at the best prices we can.
Thanks for dropping by!
Michael, Jen, Mel and Tim
