About BikeMinds

We’re creating a whole new way for motorcyclists to discover products, share knowledge, and connect with like-minded riders.

There’s an incredible energy in our two-wheel community, yet our online tools lag behind. You expect a modern, refined user experience from the popular social networks and apps we all use. We built BikeMinds from the ground up to deliver that type of experience in a motorcycle-specific platform. As we gain momentum we will be adding features, tools, and resources – all with the goal of exceeding your expectations of what being a motorcyclist online can be!

The BikeMinds Team

Malcolm Fontier
Founder, CEO, Creative Director

Malcolm heads up operations and design here at BikeMinds. He combines years of design and product development experience with a passion for everything 2-wheels. As his username suggests, Malcolm’s top choice is heading off the grid on long adventure rides. All of this started with some ideas hatched on one of those rides.
