Ordered a Lynskey R150 Limited Edition after wanting for so long to own a Titanium Road Bike. Initially I was keen on getting the Motobecane LeChampion Ti SL but I opted for the R150 because of its geometry (taller headtube) compared to the Ti SL.

I still don't have it with me, it's stored by a family relative, but here's the pics as was shipped.

I've been enjoying my R150 since early winter. Quality frame with quality ride. Tough letting your relative unpacking it

I had to unpack at UPS because box wouldn't fit in car

Still tweaking, but is making me love gravel more than asphalt.

Nice build! ...all those steer tube spacers though! It puts a lot of stress on the steer tube. If you want the handlebars at that height, I'd recommend going with a 17 degree stem flipped up and removing a bunch of those spacers. Some manufactures recommend no more than 40 mm of spacers. I doubt Lynskey would be different, especially if that fork has a carbon steer tube.

My R240 all finished. Size XL, came in at 18.5 pounds. So far, really enjoying the ride (have about 50 "test and tune" miles on it)

Orange is the best color! But being married to a Texas Aggie, my Orange wearing, kit sporting days are over. Great looking bike. :thumbsup:

Wifey's R255 Build for Dallas MS Ride

Built my wife her first roadbike, R255 XS Industrial Mill, this past winter with full Rival, Fulcrum 7s, Fabric Scoop saddle, Shimano R550 pedals, and some Performance pieces (tape, alloy post, stem, and handle bars). All in I was about +/- $1,900. Recently added a Lezyne Macro GPS unit with cadence and speed sensor which was another $140. I think the Lynskey frames from their ebay site are great values. No guarantee on the winning bid, but it enabled me build up a "for life" bike at a reasonable cost. I find the ride to be lively vs my Domane. Not knocking Trek. IsoSpeed is real. That thing is butter, but just a different feel and more isolation from the road than I probably really want.

I posted for input on a frame for myself, would appreciate your input. Cheers!

Is that an Easton EC90 0 degree stem? What type of fork?

Looks great. The new Tiagra looks high end.

Thank you! Yes on the stem...The Fork is Easton EC90, the painter was supposed to remove the logos and leave a matte finish but painted it flat black instead.

Just adding to the pictures. This is my R240 I built this winter. I'm really enjoying it and the ride qualities. It weighs about 18.2 pounds

Got my R260 (finally!) 2018 01 17

The bike is FANTASTIC!

I've got some problems with the company, though, and will spin that into a separate thread in the general area.

Thinking of getting a r260 rim brake or Helix Sport rim brake from the Lynskey sale. Pretty sure of sizing from their chart at 6'2" I would take a large, geometry is the same for both. I'm after opinions on either. I like the appearance of traditional tubes of the 260 but maybe thinking the helix sport would be better performance??? Or have i over though this, I'm no racer, just like to ride fast when possible and i just want a bike i'll love for years.
