Strengths:    I used this frame primary to race ultra endurance bikepakcing events. I choose this frame due to its more comfortable downtube that not only delivers the power to the crank but does that in a more comfortable manner. Well I am so happy with my choice, just completed the HLC.com race, 1400km ride in the most demanding condition and I am so pleased with the frame. The frame gave me the confidence to ride hard, fast, and agile on those long days on the saddle I sometimes had the impression it was a full-suspension bike! Riding tubeless with the right pressure the bike is so comfy.

Weaknesses:    None!

Bottom Line:   
This frame is like a work of art. You see the passion and love for bikes at the moment you take it out of the box. It arrived sooner that expected, packed in a professional manner. All I needed is to change and headset and the seat post and all my other parts were just transferred. I did change the stem to a longer one to get the feel I was looking for and the frame was dialed-in in a day for the race.

I mostly recommend this frame to any XC rider and ultra marathon endurance rider. This frame is what you want for those epic riders out in the wilderness!!

Not to forget the excellent customer service from Lynskey...I never waiting more that 5 minutes for a reply!! You get the feel you are part of a community...the Lynskey family.

Love it, ride on!

Strengths:    Nice and clean welding. By looking at the frame itself is a piece of art.
I don't feel much flex while riding, maybe I am light weight. It is comfortable to ride, unlike Aluminum frame. Enjoy every moment with the bike. Lifetime warranty is another plus factor to own the frame. Value for money compare to other brand of Ti frame.


Weaknesses:    I thought it would be nice if Lynskey to permanent etch its brand on the bike instead of stickers, as default. Stickers tend to deface after a few rough rided.

Bottom Line:   
Long history of American Ti frame maker with lifetime warranty, is hard to resist.

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.
