I put a minimum bid in on a Lynskey 240 frame, not thinking that there was any chance of winning. I just got an Ebay alert that I won. This is the same way I ended up with a Torelli and a Coppi. I have a few days to come up with a apology to my wife and then start planning out the build. This will be my first Ti bike

Was this through the LynskeyPerformance seller? I happened to be browsing for titanium frames yesterday and came across quite a few of those, most with no bids and some with 1 or 2. I was actually curious how much they usually end up. Glad to know you weren't outbidded. Congrats!

The Lynskey 240 looks like a great frame to me. Made in the USA and with a threaded bottom bracket. They sell them on Nashbar for $2K with fork and I suppose 25% off that if you wait for the sale. I think it seems to be a good value and a great frame. I hope you enjoy your new bike.

Glad I'm not the only one who "accidently" bought frames on ebay...
"That frame is worth much more, someone else will bid on it".
And then I ended up with a nice carbon frame for 1/10th of the MSRP.

The minimum bid was $700. That's what it went for.

It's black Friday in July! Nice steal and post picks when you start building it.
There's quite a few others on eBay if you're interested. I am holding off as I still have a backlog to work through before I can get another bike :(.

If they are still around in December... happy Birthday to me...
