Bikerumor adds trio of new writers across continent

Published March 4, 2015

GREENSBORO, N.C. (BRAIN) — Cycling tech blog has added three new writers from diverse backgrounds, spreading its geographical reach in the process.

Perhaps most recognizable is Anna Schwinn, daughter of Richard Schwinn and former design engineer for Zipp’s carbon components and, more recently, QBP’s All-City, Foundry, Whisky Parts Co. and Civia brands. In addition to designing frames and components, her duties at Minnesota-based QBP included blogging about product development on the brands’ websites.

“Anna’s knowledge of the technical aspects of frame and component design and the industry as a whole is amazing,” said Tyler Benedict, Bikerumor’s founder. “Her insider’s perspective and ability to translate technical details into entertaining stories mean we all have some incredible things to look forward to.”

Also joining Bikerumor’s team are Jayson O’Mahoney, founder of, and Steve Fisher, a mountain biker and journalist from Pemberton, British Columbia.

A Florida transplant from Australia, O’Mahoney has more than 20 years’ experiencing racing and riding gravel and ultra-cross and will “lend a passionate and experienced voice on one of the industry’s fastest-growing segments,” according to a Bikerumor release.

“Fisher combines years of North Shore travel and tourism journalism with a love of enduro, freeride and ‘Canadian XC’ mountain biking to bolster Bikerumor’s presence in a riding mecca,” Bikerumor added.

 “Combined, these folks bring a wide range of experience and variety to our already amazing team,” Benedict said. “We’re always looking for fresh voices, and to be able to add them in such diverse places like Florida, Minnesota and B.C. means we’re able to cover even more ground.”
