Mike Sinyard is the founder and chairman of Specialized Bicycle Components, an American manufacturer of bicycles with a cult following. In 1974, at the age of 24, Mike Sinyard began putting bikes together from Italian components he imported. He ran an import service, providing these sought after parts to California bike shops. Soon, mountain bikes became more common, but the choice was either a custom built, racey bike or a heavy rebuilt klunker. He knew he could build a viable bicycle for less than custom bikes cost, and thus the Specialized Stumpjumper was born in 1981. Sinyard was inducted to the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame in 1988. The StumpJumper mountain bike was added to the Smithsonian National Museum of American History's collection in 1994. He was profiled in the 2007 documentary film Klunkerz: A Film About Mountain Bikes.
