Mike Zanconato – Weldor, Bike Builder, Series Namesake, Gentle Genius

Mike Zanconato, or Zank, as he is affectionately known here, is the legendary bike-builder behind the Zanconato Singlespeed Cyclocross Series. Not only is he a consummate weldor (a ‘weldor’ is the craftsman who wields the welding device; a ‘welder’ is said device), he is also a fascinating guy with an incredibly interesting background.

Recently Mike got together with some of his heroes in the welding industry for a chin wag, and they recorded this very special episode of the Welding Tips and Tricks podcast.

We invite you to have a listen and learn more about the man, the myth, and the legend that is Mikey Z. Be forewarned that it is #weldporn geeky, so you will probably learn more about TIG welding, gas regulation, tungsten, and tolerance than you ever thought possible…

Enjoy!
