The Basikal is a one-stop centre selling bicycles, offering repair services and providing basic classes on bicycle maintenance to encourage the culture of cycling, as well as establish Kuala Lumpur as an important check-point in the tour cycling map.
The first shop was located on a university campus, where the founder was a student since 2008 and was inspired by its practicality in getting around the campus. Apart from offering repair services, tool rental and bicycle repair classes to students, The Basikal sold bicycles and was the distributor for renowned brands like Surly, Salsa and All City, achieving sales of 3,000 bicycles to university students in its first year. In 2015, The Basikal moved to its current location in Bangsar, where it opened its bicycle-themed café in September 2016.
