Strengths:    Lightweight frame, nimble, feels fast, durable

Weaknesses:    Creaking bottom bracket.

Bottom Line:   
Have never written a bike review before. I bought this as a frameset and built up the bike with a mixture of components. I was looking for my "forever" bike and wanted Ti and I loved Litespeed but when they were sold off and Lynskey started, I always wanted one.

After my first ride, my reaction was WOW! I love it. The bike feels nimble and fast. Running a Dura Ace 2x10 drivetrain means that gear shifts are fantastic! The Ti frame feel compliant and just soaks up the bumps. Piling on the miles on this bike is going to be a joy.

Strengths:    Responsive, confortable, and solid. A beautifully made bicycle that I hope to ride for years.

Weaknesses:    Haven't really noted any, but I did change out the saddle pretty quickly, which I suspect most buyers of bikes do, anyway.

Bottom Line:   
A well made, comfortable bike that is very well adapted to long rides. Recommended for all cyclists looking for a durable bike for longer rides, especially

Strengths:    I bought this frame for a lightweight touring frame and it is perfect for me. Very confortable, smouth, look really great, nice finish, good welds. I change my old litespeed ultimate for that one and i perfer the lynskey... Because it is a better shape for what i need. Awesome bike!

Weaknesses:    The frame is a littlebite heavier than wath i was expected. If you have 30c tires you it is a little tweaky to put the wheel on the bike, but it works perfectly, so i dont really have a bad comment for that bike!... Personaly, i will prefer to put 32c tires.. But it is only for myself!

Bottom Line:   
Confortable, smooth, durable, lightweight, strong and really good finish!
