Lynskey Performance Designs M230 XC Hardtail

Lynskey Performance Designs M230 XC Hardtail 

DESCRIPTION

The M230 is the culmination of Lynskey’s 25+ years of craftsmanship. We designed the M230 for the rider desiring a lightweight, no maintenance, well balanced race frame. Predictable handling, superb agility, explosive sprinting and a proven racing geometry make the M230 the perfect racing package.

  • Competition-tuned tubeset provides precision handling and excellent stability without sacrificing rider comfort
  • Over-sized curved downtube allows for fork crown clearance and provides stiff bottom bracket for efficient energy transfer
  • S-bend chainstays and seatstays allow ample tire, chainring, crankarm and heel clearance
  • Chainstay lengths that promote better traction when climbing
  • Disc specific rear dropouts guarantee proper caliper/disc alignment

Strength:

The M230 is both a work of art and a funcional piece of equipment. The welds on this bike frame are the best I have seen. The hand brushed finish makes the bike handsome and easy to care for. The titanium used in the bike mixes flex and stiffness perfectly as if it knew what you need and when you need it. If you want to own a beautiful bike which you can actually thrash around in your local trails or bike routes, the Lynskey M230 is a strong option to consider. I get compliments from fellow bikers when I hit the trail. They know that Lynskey stands for the best.

Weakness:

No other issues as of now. Danger of theft perhaps?

I wanted to build one bike to keep for a lifetime. I found it in the Lynskey M230. What I didn't know was that it got me hooked on Lynskey bikes. I can't imagine turning to carbon, alloy, steel or even titanium frames made by other manufacturers. My next bike will definitely be another Lynskey.

Strength:

Climbs really great, likewise in descending.
Lightweight and durable with good finishing.
Price is lowest compare to other Ti brands.
Ride is fast and excellent steering, just look at where you want to go and you are there.
A really good all round bike.

Weakness:

Lower price would be great

I enjoy and really satisfy with this awesome bike. It's lightweight, fast climbing and descending ride plus nice brush finished and reasonable pricing really ought to make the competitor shivers.

I'm selling away my other bike because of this awesome bike as I see no use in having a slower bike. This bike shouldn't be overlooked when you want to get a hardtail titanium bike. One ought to consider buying this bike if have the capacity. A truly awesome bike, at least for me.

Strength:

LIGHT, responsive, vibration deadening, totally built for xc racing.

Weakness:

none, if an efficient hardtail racer is what you need.

This is a dream bike for any xc racer. If you are a trailrider thinking of racing stick with full susp. If you desire to kill competition on climbs and suck every second out of every course this is it.

Strength:

good workmanship, accurate alignment, light

Weakness:

it has tenedencies to go fast, ferrocioysly fast!

soft ride though but technically this bike is for professional racer only. it needs attention to handle its speed. very agile, nimble, and rolls really fast, i mean fast. this bike is not for me. am slow as a swine though i love to ride long hours. the geometry puts you in an attack position and not so comfortable on long rides. it can climb, it can decend better that a full sus but still attention is a must. you have to stay awake all thru your ride. it insppires confidence in terms of craftmanship. this is built on rocks. and it rocks. serious racers would love this bike but a weekend warrior may shy away.
