Cross Country/All Mountain



The Steer 29+ is a mountain bike for big guys. With great geometry for All mountain and Cross Country mountain biking, this 29 plus hardtail mountain bike is the perfect mountain bike for big and tall people. The 29 x 3 inch tires give extra cushion to the ride, great traction, and superior stability and control. The titanium frame is built super tough for big guys and comes in a L, XL, 2XL, 3XL, and 4XL for riders from 6’3″ to 7’3″. The Steer comes with proportional length cranks for optimal pedaling efficiency, and extra wide handlebars to fit broad shoulders. The wheels are custom built right here at our shop in Boulder, Colorado using our own Clydesdale hubs that are rated for riders up to 450lbs! We build these wheels using 32 DT swiss competition double butted spokes per wheel and DT swiss brass pro-lock nipples to keep your wheels true for many miles. Each wheel is precision built by professional wheelbuilders in our shop using high-tech spoke wrenches, wheel building stands, and spoke tension meters.

Available Sizes: L, XL, 2XL/3XL/4XL

There are many more factors to building a big and tall bike than most people understand. It is not as simple as just scaling up a “normal” sized frame and calling it good. When you do that, several things happen to the bike. First, the stretched out tubes become less stiff, which results in high speed frame shimmy. This is a scary by-product of a poorly designed bike. Second, the added material makes the bike heavier, especially if the builder tries to solve problem number one with just using bigger heavier tubes. Third, without a fork with a long enough steering tube, the handlebars will be far too low for the tall cyclist causing discomfort in the back, neck, wrists, and arms. Fourth, building a bike for a tall rider with average length cranks will make the rider feel like he’s pedaling a kids bike while sitting up very high. Lennard has developed great frame design concepts to address and solve all of these issues and more, which are all fully applied in the designs of Clydesdale Bikes. A Clydesdale bike designed by Lennard Zinn will be stiff and strong, while remaining lightweight. It will never shimmy at high speeds, and all of the components, including cranks and handlebars, will be proportional to the rider. Fit, performance, comfort, and durability will all be superior on a Lennard Zinn designed bike than a big and tall bike from any other designer out there. We guarantee it.



When it comes to the best types of materials for bike frames, we have several options. However, we always recommend titanium because it has numerous benefits over materials like aluminum, steel, and carbon fiber. Check out some of the perks of choosing a titanium bike frame for your custom build, including:

  • Half the weight of steel
  • Supports larger diameter tubing
  • Offers more strength and fatigue resistance for smaller tubing
  • Provides more efficient power transfer
  • Ensures a compliant ride with minimal road buzz and bumps
  • Corrosion-free material that you can paint or leave bare
  • Never fatigues if you don’t reach the fatigue limit
  • Can flex twice as much as steel and three times as far as aluminum
  • No risk of catastrophic failures from notch damage

Our titanium frames are designed to last you for your entire life – if not longer. Choose a titanium frame that’s specially fit for your dimensions to discover the best ride of your life.
