A Most Unique Background

There are a handful of bicycle brands in the market today whose founders and/or key contributors have backgrounds in high-level, professional bike racing, with a very few even boasting World Tour success. And there are bike brands headed by people with a great deal of experience in the bike manufacturing industry as well as closely related fields like mechanical design and engineering. But someone with years of experience as a winning professional bike racer, accomplished cycling coach, expert bike fitter, and who’s held various technical positions in the bicycle manufacturing industry is a rare commodity. This is John Gerard Sheehan.
