New industry guy in Boulder.

Great to have you join us. Should I ask what it's like to work with Mr. Zinn?

thanks guys. should be a good year for boating here in colorado. some of the basins have close to 200% snowpack.
working for lennard is great. he's the nicest guy and he makes sweet bikes. he's really hard to keep up with on the bike trails.
i have an all mountain 29er size large. it's like the Gigabike but size large. we mostly do bikes for really tall guys, but I'm short in comparison at 6'1".

Really? It sounds as if we should remind the Clydesdales forum about that...does this involve custom frames?

We do an XC bike (Megabike) and an AM bike(Gigabike) in a XXL and a XXXL size. We do custom geometry as well. I am probably going to start advertising on this forum as well.

Welcome aboard, Wigston.
