At Scribe, we don’t like to think we’re like other wheel brands
I met last year Alan Graham while he had presentations at some of the Cycling Ulster top races in the province and was impressed with his stuff, we talked about maybe working together in 2020 as Alan is a great believer in supporting talent and getting people on bikes, right up our project’s street so to speak. And so we did, and can now gladly announce Scribe Cycling as one of the co-sponsors for 2020 which includes funds for the BP bursary scheme! Thank you, Alan, it will make a difference http://www.scribecycling.co.uk
Alan Graham reports: “We are a small brand that creates performance product for serious riders. We draw on decades worth of experience to challenge, test and obsess over detail, to bring a new innovative product to market with a ‘Zero Compromise’ attitude. About 8 years ago, I gave up an engineering career to pursue the sport I love, cycling. Fortunately, N. Ireland had an online cycling powerhouse that was causing ripples on a global scale; Chain Reaction Cycles (CRC), and I naturally found myself in their ranks. Having started as a customer service technical advisor, I soon ended up in CRC’s ‘House Brands’ department where I developed a product for Prime bike wheels, Nukeproof wheels & components, with small amounts of time on the other owned brands. After a whirlwind 5.5 years in CRC, I worked with Hunt bike wheels (1 year), before moving on to start Scribe Cycling.
At Scribe, we don’t like to think we’re like other wheel brands. We work with the best cycling manufacturers in the world and we aim to develop and work exclusively with many of our partners to bring a new product to market. Since launching Scribe in May 2019, we’ve worked hard to get our brand onto the playing field and we’re truly honoured so many riders have been interested in us, and what we’re doing. We sincerely thank you for your support and we promise to continually push the boundaries in pursuit of bringing riders the best pound-for-pound product possible. We hope you like our range and we are always here for you. If you ever have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!

Ireland roads too!), Irish National TT Champion 2017, has represented Ireland at Worlds and Europeans, multiple Irish National Track medals, And lots more, seriously.

Neil Lauder (PMR@) Pan Celtic Racer, for those that haven’t heard of the PCR, it’s this Epic Race through some of the most breath-taking scenery in Scotland, Ireland and Wales (England replaces Scotland for 2020 edition). In 2019, the race covered 1,500 miles (2,414 km) with 25,908m (85,000 ft) of elevation gain. Riders mass start and follow a pre-planned route with GPS trackers. Fully self-supported, they battle the elements, the rugged Celtic terrain, each other, and themselves in an attempt to say they completed the PCR.
