BOULDER, Colo. (BRAIN) — Lennard Zinn has rejoined the VeloNews editorial staff as its first test editor.
“Zinn will augment the VeloNews tech and gear coverage with rigorous and independent testing procedures that will bring scientifically valid answers to the hottest and most important tech questions facing the sport of cycling,” the magazine said in a statement Wednesday.
Zinn has contributed to VeloNews since 1989 as a freelancer and is a former staffer. He also is the author of three books published by VeloPress and sells custom frames, bikes and components through his company Zinn Cycles.
“VeloNews is the most trusted media brand in cycling,” said VeloNews tech editor Dan Cavallari. “Readers know that our reviews of bikes, components, apparel, and safety gear are independent and reliable. Bringing a trained physicist and bicycle technician like Lennard Zinn on board means we can take our tech coverage to a new high. The high standards at VeloNews just got even higher.”
“Lennard’s column is a reader favorite,” said Spencer Powlison, news director for VeloNews.com. “As bike tech continues to become more complex and refined, readers need Lennard’s objective approach. Adding Zinn to the VeloNews staff means shining a brighter light on cycling’s arcane tech space.”
