LYNSKEY 2018 Cooper CX

Bought that one for a rather reasonable price at Wiggle and am in the process of building it up.
I intend to use it for commuting on and off road and such ...

so far so good -

Oh thank goodness you put a black fork on there. That striped one was just SCREAMING at me! It took away from that beautiful frameset. Very nice build!

Sweet build!

How well does the Force 1 RD handle 2x? Their marketing claims the geometry wasn't designed to handle the extra chain wrap or adjustments in chainline.

If you're having issues, you might try a "10 speed" MTB RD (e.g. X9) - designed to be run 2x, still has a clutch mechanism, and uses the same cable pull as 11s SRAM road.

I love all the different ways this bike has been built up from the front rack to lauf fork!

well what to say - it sure gets my intended use done - I like to extend my fire road and gravel riding on to single tracks

there is some bob as well as a small amount of steering inaccuracy like say on a 1" steel fork - I got used to it rather quick and won't go back to a regular carbon fork
