Strengths:    Relaxed geometry with high quality welds. Lightweight and supremely comfortable with responsive handling over the worst British roads can throw at it. This bike feels like a magic carpet compared to my 8 year old carbon bike (made by another American company).

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
This is a brilliant frame that has resulted in a brilliant bike! Self-build (working with a £2k budget)using Peleton frame with 11 speed Ultegra, running on Fulcrum Racing 3 wheels sourced from various internet emporiums. Chose Lynskey after deciding that I wanted to go with a titanium bike - a bike for life. Found Lynskey comparison videos on youtube very helpful.
This bike rides like a dream and climbs effortlessly. Totally satisfied - Lynskey say: you get a buttery smooth ride and they are damn right! Recommended. Day off tomorrow and I'm out for a five hour ride...

Strengths:    Very comfortable. Handles well.

Weaknesses:    Can be a liitle bit stiffer.

Bottom Line:   
I'm just your typical weeked rider. I love bikes and have gone through quite a few. This is my first Ti bike and I'm glad I went for Lynskey. Quality bikes and great customer service regardless if I purchased it from one of their dealers Michael Ledford made sure I was happy with my purchase. This is the most comfortable bike I have owned so far--- its a keeper. I'm already looking to sell my Pinarello to get the R230 as my next Lynskey.

Strengths:    rock stable ride, beautiful welds

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
after owning a lot of high end carbon bikes I would highly recommend the Peloton to everyone. it's a long /short distance bike that you can cover miles of crappy roads with and get off and feel refreshed. it's the best bang for your buck bike going. Ti is real and it's smooth.the weight cam

Strengths:    - Responsive and light
- Stable handling - increases my confidence descending and cornering
- Durable (I keep my bikes for 15-20 years, so carbon and aluminum are out)
- Fun to ride
- A buzz of excitement when I clip in and head out


Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
I’ve had my Peloton for a month and after 1000km here are my thoughts:
I like it. A lot.
It ticks all the boxes (see strengths), plus I love the titanium feel – its weird how it can be so forgiving on bumpy pavement, but not at all mushy. Weird.
The frame geometry is just right for me – I have another bike which has a 30” chainstay length and it’s too twitchy, and a touring frame with 34” which is like cycling a truck. The Peloton is just right.
Last weekend I did a 100km hilly group ride and it struck me around 60-80km that I was not as weary as I was expecting, and on the last big climbs around 95km I was passing people on their carbon frames. I’m not into speed like I used to be, but this is great for longer rides as well as my daily 40km round trip to work.
I bought the frame through a local dealer who kitted it out with Ultegra 11 speed, Velocity A23 wheels., White industry T11 hub. Almost a fully US-made bike (except for the Shimano bits). Cost was around US$3700 + tax. Good value for a bike that I will get a lot of use out of.

Strengths:    The frame is beautifully welded and finished with nice details. So far I've notched up around 150 miles and the ride quality is superb - I'd read about how Ti frames soothed out all the lumps & bumps on the road but riding is believing.

Weaknesses:    None to speak of.

Bottom Line:   
Excellent quality almost a work of art - my for ever bike!

R255/Peloton fit question I am 179cm (5' 10.5") tall, 85cm (33.5") inseam,relatively long arms, and currently weigh 200lbs.

'99 Schwinn Peloton conversion- rear brake question

I have a beautiful '99 Schwinn Peloton that I am converting for cyclocross use, since I can do it for minimal cost and have had a hard time selling it locally as a road bike (for many reasons, including its stock alu fork). It is a Reynolds 853 frame. A few quick facts: Since I'm ditching the ... Read More »

An open letter to the peloton

Because it's become abundantly clear that the pro-peloton are aware of us; More accurately, dear people applauding Bradley Wiggins for his foul-mouthed tirade today: I'd like to outline why I think you're all massive hypocrites, and why you get the reaction from people that you do.

Two things I've never seen in the peloton

1) a channeled saddle 2) tattoos I watch a fair amount of races -- certainly not all of them, but I do watch. I don't remember ever seeing a pro cyclist with a tattoo or one sitting on a saddle with a hole in it. Why? Are all a pack of steel-tainted choirboys? Is there some anti-tattoo policy th ...
