Sean is a consummate bike-industry veteran. He's spent 29 years absorbing every little detail, from the tire patch up to custom frame design, from internally rifled tubes to outward graphics and custom paint. Over the years he’s worn a variety of hats (helmets?) in the industry, from managing and developing bike shops, training, parts sourcing, marketing and generally spending an inordinate amount of time finding out what makes bike components tick.
His credentials include working with the Victorian Institute of Sport as a bike fitter and building bikes for athletes such as David McKenzie, stage winner of the Giro de Italia, Anna Wilson, Road World Cup Champion and Geraldine Denham, overall winner Tour of New Zealand.
Sean is also a bit of cyclist himself, having competed in MTB enduros, cross country/hill climbing events and road criteriums.

After 20 years working in the dark recesses of an Australian investment bank, James fortuitously had a career change forced upon him in Hong Kong and joined the team at Sky Blue Bikes five years ago.
A keen road cyclist and remarkably untalented mountain biker, James has taken to the bike industry like a duck to water. Riding with the SIRS and Project 852 at local and regional races, he is a common sight on Hong Kong’s roads. In fact, many people wonder if he does anything other than ride his bike.
Having ridden most of what Hong Kong has to offer, he’ll gladly share his intimate local knowledge of the best cycling routes, just ask.
