Today, BH Bikes capitalizes on a history of more than 100 years of setting performance standards in an industry inherently driven to innovate what we ride and race. BH Bikes has developed a specific line of higher performance bicycles that are lighter, stiffer and more ergonomic than the competition. During the 2012 Olympics, the Olympic Gold Medalists for Women’s Mountain Bikes and Women’s Triathlon both rode BH Bikes.
