For decades, American's have considered bicycles to be toys or fancy fitness equipment, only associating them with children or spandex-clad men.
We want to change that.
In early 2014, Nick Drombosky founded Banker Supply in the East Liberty neighborhood of Pittsburgh with the idea to make cycling more approachable for everyone. Named after the Banker Brothers of late nineteenth century pro-cycling fame (who also called East Liberty home), Banker Supply focused on high quality soft-goods and clothing as well as innovative accessories that makes cycling a part of your lifestyle.
The idea behind cycling lifestyle is to focus on the ride and destination instead of the bike and gear. We source products from all over the world that are designed to make cycling easier, more enjoyable, and seamlessly integrate into your life. Along with the goal of making cycling more inclusive, we want to help support all the designers, makers, and entrepreneurs that are working to make cycling better– not just the corporations that hold power in the industry.
In early 2017, we made it a two-year goal to have 50% of our products come from vendors and brands that have women and/or minorities in leadership of their companies by 2019.
Banker Supply's mission is to make it easier for all people to have bicycles a part of their daily life through honest and transparent services and high-quality, curated products focusing on value.
