Strengths:    Lightweight.
Looks fantastic.
Comfortable ride.
Great craftsmanship.


Weaknesses:    Very flexy
Decals rub off very easily. I was doss splinted with how easy the decals rubbed off. The first time I put in on my bike rack they started coming off. They sell replacements directly from lynskey but they are very expensive.


Bottom Line:   
This frame looks like a million bucks. I could not believe how light it felt when I took it out of the box. I did an XT build with it. The final build weighed in at 24lbs. This frame replaced my trek aluminum bike. The lynskey frame was so much more comfortable to ride. The flex of the titanium really absorbs the bumps compared to my previous frame. I was surprised at how much flex there was and the bottom bracket. Its very rubbery. Doing a quick slalom maneuver will make the frame feel like rubber. It took a bit to get used to that. I've used this bike in several races. It is light and fast. It's easy on the eyes. The welds are beautiful.
