My "9-12" Lynskey

I had been wanting to grab a more modern Ti bike to add to the mix, and looked at a bunch of lower cost options, including having one made custom by Waltley, but eventually settled on a Lynskey.

One of their recent sales included the frame, headset, tapered enve fork, ti seatpost, ti stem and ti headset spacers, had a threaded BB, made in USA and lifetime warranty. Cool sky blu anodized logos. hard to beat for not a ton of money.

Customer service from Lynskey was A+. Answered phone every time. delivered on time. No drama.

Also wanted to fiddle with some different component choices, and this bike should be a good test mule. Drivetrain is a purpose picked mix of 9, 10, 11 and 12 speed components!

Took it for a spin last night and everything works as intended. hopefully a longer ride this weekend!

That's a clean set of ti parts right there! I love the mix of the parts - and I haven't seen bar-end shifters in forever! That's good old '80's cyclocross right there!

Dig it! Is this your new "travel" bike? Figuring you went with the durability and foolproof of the ti plus bar-cons for a reason

Well done.

I have owned several Lynskey's in the past (when I had a house with a basement which included room for more than 1 bike) and found them to be good value for money and all great riding frames.

Please report back on the model and tire clearance.

Looks really great. Ti spacers and stem a nice touch. Black-on-ti group and fork looks great too. And I like the splash-of-color bar tape. Not quite feeling the gold chain...

Thanks guys.

9-sp stuff:

-cassette
-chain

10-sp stuff:

-shifters in friction mode

11-sp stuff:

-fd
-rd

12-sp stuff:

-crank

brake calipers are currently a sweet 1st gen set of chorus silver skeletons which feature the "bearings" in the front brake and single pivot rear. this set-up was discontinued and bushings were used in the later models with the bearing models reserved for record/sr

levers are the usual trp rrl
