Steve - Lead Designer
Steve is always looking to bring fresh ideas and innovation to out products and says he gets his best ideas whilst out cycling!
Having owned over 30 bikes over the years he has a deep understanding of how changes in geometry affect the way a bike handles and Steve is passionate about improving the cycling experience for our customers.
This is his main focus when working on frame geometry to develop bikes that are stronger, lighter and more rider-friendly.
Emma - Graphic Designer
Emma's absolute favourite thing as an Insync Graphic Designer, is to see kids on the bikes that she has designed.
She had a significant part in the design process of the Viking Roadmaster, from Frame drawing to working with the frame builder in Manchester. As well as being sponsored to ride the bikes in a team of 6 ‘The Vikings’.
I’ve been riding my bike for the past 10 years. I ride to get to work, sometimes for work, to keep fit and to escape when the world is too much.

Insync Bikes brand ambassador and Olympic BMX rider Shanaze Reade has shared her battles with depression, anxiety and alcohol to inspire others during Mental Health Awareness Week.
Shanaze, who competed for Team GB in the 2008 and 2012 games, at one stage felt like she “didn’t want to be here” after using alcohol to mask how she was feeling when she retired from sport.
Now she believes cycling has assisted in her recovery and has urged others to use exercise to help strengthen their mental health to mark the week, from 18-24 May.
The 31-year-old, also a track cyclist, is two-and-a-half years sober and has just launched a personal training business to use her talents to help others.
She said: “I found that when I got back on the bike, I started feeling better because sport really does help your mental health. I ride twice a day now and it’s the best form of therapy I’ve ever had.”
Working at Insync
“Starting at the company after travelling around Australia by bicycle, I knew I landed a career I can truly get stuck into. I never knew much about the engineering of a bike and how there are different ways around using low cost components to produce a ‘high end’ look.”
