    Lynskey Titanium 650b frames $1600

    Looks like Lynskey is updating the 650B ti frames for 2014 - PF30 BB, tapered HT and most likely, 12x142 thru rear end.

    Meanwhile the 2013's are on sale

    No moss...

    Wasn't concerned about the BB or the non-TA rear, but the straight HTs were kind of a buzzkill for me.

    Why a press in b? I dont get it. For a component that needs so much attention it make no sense to me. How many time can you remove it before your frame gets screwed up? That's a deal killer for me.

    What's the issue with the HT? It's oversized, so it gives the option of running any steer tube option you want with the proper headset.

    So these 2013 frames can take a tapered steering tube fork then?

    Yes, I have a one, the headtube is a 44mm so you can run a tapered fork if you purchase the correct headset...Damn that is a good price.

    I run a Chris King Inset 7

    I don't know why people are complaining about the BB for next year when the thread is about closeouts on this years model. If you want a threaded BB buy the 2013. That's what I just did.

    Thanks to the OP. This is a killer deal. I can live with the 135 rear. The choice of either 1 1/8 or tapered fork on the same frame sealed the deal for me.

    BTW, if you can live with a 1 1/8 steerer tube (God forbid ), the MT is also on closeout for $1099. You may never get an American made Ti frame for such a low price again.
