Quality custom bicycles for women
Women’s custom bikes
If Lennard Zinn wasn’t really good at making great fitting, lightweight, and high performing women’s road bikes, he may never have won over his wife Sonny. Well, maybe that’s a little extreme, but he did charm her with his bike building skills. That got him into the women’s bicycle market and Zinn Cycles sponsored the Alphalphas female racing team in Boulder, Colorado, which Sonny was a member. He made bikes for all the women on the team and many other women racers of the time. 30 years later, he is still making great women’s bikes that are even lighter, faster, and more comfortable to ride. He has perfected the art of fitting people, especially women, onto their bikes. Not only do we make frames that can fit very small women, we can also make cranks that are short enough for small people. It doesn’t make sense for a 5’1″ woman to be riding the same length cranks as a 5’8″ man, yet that is what the rest of the industry tells you to do. Since our cranks are available in lengths as short as 130mm, you can be certain you will be pedaling with efficiency and without joint pain. We are also able to build road bikes for small women using 650c wheel size. Just ask.
Bike fitting included with every Zinn bike frame
No matter where you live in the world, we will work with you to make sure the fit of your Zinn bike is absolutely perfect. We offer a full service in-house bike fitting for those who can make it to Boulder, Colorado and we also have detailed measurements instructions for those who cannot make it out for an in-house fitting. We are also happy to work directly with a bike fitter in your area, and we offer upgraded 3D bike fittings with Dr. Andy Pruitt at the Boulder RETUL Center.
