Top Bicycle Brands in the World – 2022

As you might guess from the name, BMC Switzerland has its headquarters in Switzerland. The company began in 1994 and currently has around 120 employees around the world. BMC supplied bikes to the Phonak Cycling Team, a Swiss team that was overseen by Andy Rihs. Rihs eventually took over the entire company in 2000.

Since then, BMC Bikes have won several bike tournaments and races including the Tour de France in 2011. The brand currently makes full range of bikes including road, mountain and recreational cycles.

Top Bicycle Brands in the World – 2022

The founder of Merida Bikes, Ike Tseng, got the idea for the company on a visit to the US in the early 1970s. Tsung went to bike shop and found a note there stating that the repair shop wouldn’t work on any bikes produced in Taiwan, due to the low quality of those cycles.

Tseng set about to create a bike brand and high-quality bikes that were made in Taiwan. Merida, which was officially found in 1988, does just that. The company combines Taiwanese manufacturing with an R&D arm based in Germany. Today, it produces a range of bikes including city/commuter bikes, mountain bikes and road bikes.
