      Specialized was founded in 1974 by Mike Sinyard after selling his car to fund a biking adventure around Europe, whilst on this tour, he went about acquiring components made by the established bicycle manufacturers here in Europe before taking them back to the U.S. to begin building bikes using them.

      This was quite unique as at the time such components were next to impossible to find in the U.S. but in the coming years Sinyard would begin to develop his own components and in 1979 the company developed the now infamous Allez.
