BAIKS (officially known as Suomen Polkupyörätukku Oy) is a bicycle chain founded in 1994, the largest cycling center for the whole family in Finland.

Easy email campaigns


As of 2017, Suomen Polkupyörätukku owns and operates 12 BAIKS stores in Finland. The company also operates a retail website in Finland, as well as a mobile-enabled website that allow customers to shop from the whole online range. The stores of the BAIKS chain offer personalized service and expert assistance to choose the right bike model and help customers with all the issues related to cycling.
