Not your regular bike company
Like any story worth telling, our journey from bikes to boardroom has more than one chapter. Scroll down below and click on “Read More” to learn about the early days, recounting how a humble band of British bikers, led by Ben and Jezz, punched their way to the top to form Mango Bikes.
We’ve come a long way since then, but getting here wasn’t a smooth ride. In 2017 Mango hit a bump, like those potholes that send you head-over-handlebars. It was a mix of good bikes, bad numbers, and some not-so-wise prophets.
Things went a little sour, like those mangos that just don’t taste right, so it was time for a change. Instead of lounging around in defeat, we did what riders do. We got Mango back on the bike – metaphorically first, but then for real. We cycled balls-to-the-wall to blow off the steam then came back to start afresh.
We relocated to Ballyclare in Northern Ireland, where we still make the same brilliant bikes, but with twice the rainfall and a nicer view. Mango is now under new ownership, but we’re still the same tasty brand, with the same passion, and most importantly the same great bikes – but with a story to rival Shakespeare. Drop by our showroom to hear it in person (and buy a bike so we can pay the rent).
Keep ‘er lit,
Andrew & the team
