Meet our talented team
Scribe Cycling is home to a unique group of people. Blending decades of cycling expertise with industry knowledge.
Alan Graham - Founder, and pretty much all-round domestique
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 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.

Dan "I first met Alan while working for Chain Reaction, I remember him showing me a trick on how to improve the fluidity of a (not so good) dropper seat post. This always stuck with me, Alan was a perfectionist and performance of any part to work flawlessly, this is something both of us share. So when it came round to Alan asking me to join the team many years later, it was always going to be a no brainer.
I have always been riding bikes (Mainly bouncy ones) since I can remember, and to be part of a team that strives to produce not only amazing products but first-class customer service, is an honour and a dream come true for me.
I can't wait to share with everyone what we have been working on!"

Robert Magee - Financial Director
No brand would be sustainable without a dedicated finance team, poring over the figures and ensuring the operation runs smoothly. Heading up finance, Robert joined the Team in late 2021 to look after the financial workings of Scribe, a Chartered Accountant with 20 years experience in finance and an even longer cycling career, spanning Mountain Biking, Road, Triathlon and in recent years Gravel.
“Having worked externally with Alan for a couple of years, when he suggested there might be a full-time role for me at Scribe I of course jumped at the chance. We are a young brand with a fantastic product range and plenty of exciting projects in the pipeline."
