Bikes for tall guys

Custom Bicycles for big and tall men and women

Zinn Cycles has been building great bikes for tall guys since 1982. At 6’6″, Lennard Zinn knows what it takes to design the best bikes for tall guys. Many framebuilders and bike manufacturers have built  tall bikes, but they don’t realize the key ingredients to a great tall bike. When other builders scale up standard frame geometry to fit a taller rider, the elongated tubes lose their strength and rigidity and thus fatigue much faster. Tall bikes from other designers tend to shimmy at high speeds, which is very scary and can cause serious crashes. Lennard’s unique compact frame design has been tested on the biggest and tallest riders and provides a strong, stiff, and beautifully riding bicycle that will last a lifetime. We love building bikes for tall guys, and we have built amazing custom bicycles for men up to 7’5″. No matter how big or tall you are, we will build you a great bike that fits, performs, and doesn’t shimmy.

Bike fitting

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.
