Nice looking bike! I'm building up a R230 as we speak. Hope to finish it tomorrow. Looking forward to drawing one comparisons to my carbon bike.

And yes, we need a Lynskey specific forum made available.

You're gonna love it! I rode it today on a MUT that Ive been on numerous times and I was amazed at how much more comfy it was than my carbon bike!

My Lynskey R330. Coming up to 2 1/2 years old in May and almost 15,000km completed. Great frame and ride. I built a set of 23mm wide rims for it which match the bike nicely.

Almost done with my R230 build. Down to the chain, levers and cables. I need some assistance with those as I've never done them before but it should be this week :) I'll post some pics once its done. It's been fun building it and I've learned so much.

I did the cables on this bike for the first time. I just read a few threads on here and sheldonbrown as to how they should be set up. I like how they turned out much better than how the shop set up my bike previously.

Cable cutters are a good investment.

Beautiful rig! How do you like those wheels?

What model are those?
These are Reynolds Thirty Two with custom decals built up with Chris King R45 hubs and Sapim Cx Ray / Cx Sprint spokes. I've only got them 1 month now, but the first impression is positive. The steering stability isn't much affected by cross winds and the stopping power (in the dry) is very good with the blue Reynolds pads.

I like the Ti spacer and seat post, have you seen the new seat post that Lynskey recently introduced? Unfortunately it isn't available with set back in 31.6mm.

On a side note I had Shimano 105 on my previous bike. From what I read sram was louder but I havent found that to be the case....Any thoughts?

She's finally finished

Just finished my R230 today. Building my first bike was quite a challenge but well worth the effort. The satisfaction is very nice. Today was the final day and we went out for a 20 mile shake down ride. Everything worked perfectly. I'm very pleased so far. Will do a full review in a month or so when I can have 500 plus miles logged before making any final judgments. Today’s ride was smooth.

Componets are Campagnolo Chorus 11 group-set. Campagnolo Neutron Ultra wheel-set. Easton EC90 aero handlebars on 3T team stem. Specialized Romin Expert 155mm saddle. Enve 2.0 road fork. Look Keo Carbon Blade pedals. Lizard skin bar tape.

Some pics for your view pleasure.
