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!

Strengths:    light, fast and Very comfortable

Bottom Line:   
Last year I rode the Triple Bypass on a high end aluminum frame and decided I needed to upgrade to something softer. The Lynskey frame is perfect. I added a few ounces in weight, but the ride is softer and more comfortable for those long days cranking up hills but is still stiff enough to get out of the saddle and rock my way up the steeper sections when I need to. My only regret with this bike is that I waited so long to step up to titanium.

Sportscaster mispronouncing the whole peloton!

I'm not sure who this douche is on the microphone with Bob Roll announcing the Criterium Du Dauphine but if I hear him say "Alessandro DiMarKEE" one more time, I don't know if I'll be able to control myself.Read More »

Converting 99 Schwinn Peloton to 1" threadless carbon fork & headset...

I am somewhat new to wrenching on headsets and forks. I have a wonderful 99 Schwinn Peloton 853 that came with an aluminum fork. Since there's already documented issues with the JIS crown race/ISO headset, and I'm tired of quill stems anyways, I'm thinking of just converting altogether to thread ... Read More »
