we’re different than your typical bike store
Jim Curwood set out to create a bike shop with a different approach than the big box store experience 38 years ago. He started Buy My Bikes (BMB) with experienced, enthusiastic and dedicated staff who really love bikes and want you to love them, too. There’s no bike snobbery here, just personalized attention to help you enjoy biking as much as we do!
Jim and his team work hard to earn your business as a long-term customer through listening to your needs and working within your budget to find the right bike and gear. We offer the biggest selection of bikes for all ages, including kid’s, BMX and mountain bikes in Orange County, and are one of the leading retailers of Electra electric bikes and handmade Detroit Bikes. Our service department team is the stuff of local legends, including Bosch Repair Certification for Electra bikes. We sell the best and service the rest!

If you’re from Orange County, you’re likely familiar with BMB from its commercials that date back to the 1980’s with owner Jim Curwood in a bee costume. They’re still going strong today, now on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube! Not familiar with them? Watch the commercials here!

Giving Back To Our Community
Buy My Bikes has grown because of your support, and we’ve always given back to the community with philanthropic efforts, routinely raffling off bikes at local charity events. We’ve donated bikes to the Historical Society Barbecue, San Juan’s Fourth of July festivities, San Juan Summer Nights, Dana Point Music in the Park, and many more organizations. We love this area and thank the people who continue to support us!
Here’s a short list of some of those groups that have received bikes from BMB: Thanks for your help!
