Greenspeed CEO Ian Sims has died

It is with great sadness that we report on the passing of Ian Sims, known to most of us as the founder and CEO of Greenspeed Trikes. Ian was a great innovator and leader in the Human Powered Vehicle movement in Australia and beyond. A genius in many respects, Ian brought many Greenspeed trikes to the world market, including the popular Magnum and Aero. He visited our shop many times and it was a pleasure, and a challenge, trying to keep up with his forward thinking and innovative ideas. Ian was the featured speaker at our Recumbent Rally and Convention and was well received by everyone. Greenspeed has been a mainstay for our shop for over twenty years, and Jerome Hediger, the Greenspeed distributor for the USA assures me the company will continue and trikes will be available. We are deeply saddened for Jerome, all of the Greenspeed family and especially Ian’s family and friends in Australia. We hope Ching and the rest of his family find some comfort knowing they have spent quality time with such a great man. Ian died today with complications from liver cancer.
