Specialized was born in California in 1974, by Mike Sinyard, initially as an Italian Component import business, and shortly afterwards manufacturing their own product ranges. Their first bikes were created in 1981, the Sequoia tourer and the still popular Allez road and Stumpjumper mountain bikes. In 1989 they were the second ever company to create a carbon fibre mountain bike, in the form of the Epic. To this day they offer a huge variety of bicycles, from children's to road bikes to mountain bike, which vary in cost from a few hundred to several thousand pounds. Nowadays Specialized are renowned for not only their bike ranges, but also their components, helmets, shoes and clothing lines, which have a reputation for being well designed yet affordable, and as such are a popular choice amongst UK riders of all levels.

This deal was originally found at Evans Cycles website, a bike shop which can trace it's roots back nearly 100 years! Evans Cycles is a London based chain of cycle shops, complete with an extensive online shop. Founded in 1921 by Frederick Evans in Kennington Road, SE London, the business traded for 30 years before being acquired by Joseph Smith in the 1950s, selling a range of cycles and toys. By the 1970s, focus was diverted solely to bicycles and cycling related equipment, and in the following years several franchised shops were opened. These were later brought back under the control of the main Evans company in the 1990s, at which point the famous Evans mail order catalogue was launched, complete with the traditional green and yellow colour scheme. With the growth of the internet, a website was launched in 1999 to help increase sales further, the latest incarnation of which can be found at www.evanscycles.com.
Since the early 2000s' the company has been steadily expanding, regularly opening new stores each year. By 2012, Evans employs 1100 members of staff, and currently has over 50 stores in the UK, making it one of the biggest cycle retailers in the country. In addition to selling a wide range of popular brands, Evans has also produced product ranges under "Pinnacle" and also currently has an exclusive deal with the "Hoy" brand.
