Budget (Lynskey) hardtail

There are some advantages to the ridiculously soft used bike market, particularly in ti, particularly in big bikes. 2018 Lynskey 29er frame, boost spacing, new 2019 Fox Float Factory fork, Chinese Niner knockoff rigid fork, Mavic Carbon wheels, XTR 10 drivetrain, XT brakes, etc. All for less than a new pair of enve wheels. Going to need grabbier tires for winter and would like to add dropper post but otherwise this is about a perfect old man's mountain bike for hitting the easy but entertaining trails around Bainbridge Island

sorta took a chance on PinkBike classifieds on a complete bike - everything but the Fox fork came with it (well Candy pedals that I subbed out for Shimano)!¡. Fox Fork was new from a shop I'd never heard of - BikeBling - they advertised a 2018 at price in low 700s but didn't have one so they substituted a new one for same price - not bad service!

Awesome. The ridged version is what I am after. Actually, I’m highly considering the motobecane ti flatbar bike and sticking on the widest tires I can.

Congrats on the score!

Great bike. My daughter has the 650b version of the Ridgeline.
Very capable race bike, too. She is racing the Colorado state high school championship on it this weekend. Bought the frame new last year from Lynskey for $550!

Nice bike and setup! I had a pro29 that I built up last year rigid with a whisky fork and xtr for a great price! It was a very fun bike that now resides with another forum member.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again,
Lynskey makes a great riding bike and it’s probably the best value if you are looking for new made in the USA ti!

Pretty sure I bought my pro29 for around $700 brand new with lifetime warranty!

Lynskey

That budget Lynskey looks like a nice find -- looks like a heck of a nice area to ride, too.
