Baseline Bicycles is a new business founded and run by college student Ray Banks. Ray has always enjoyed biking, but it was on a backpacking trip through Europe in the summer of 2012 that he first began to view the bicycle as a practical mode of transportation rather than solely for recreation.
When he returned to school Fall semester, he commuted to and from school on his newly purchased road bike; he loved it. He left school temporarily in January 2013 to spend the next six months in Hangzhou, China as a marketing intern. While there, Ray started to really notice all of the beautiful fixed-gear bicycles. After learning more, he resolved to not only get one for himself, but to turn his enthusiasm for these bikes into a business.
A few months later, and Baseline Bicycles has launched! Offering beautifully designed bikes in four colors; marketing is done exclusively online and primarily through social media. Learn more about the company and the bikes being offered by following them and/or by reading their blog.
