    About $3,700 for the Industrial Mill finish. Add another $300 for Bright Brushed.

    Wish it had a Fox rear- shock. That would be the icing on the cake.

    I guess they don't have PM rear disc tabs because it's difficult to align them properly due to the heat from the welding and the tensions that occur.

    Is the link attached to the TT and shock Ti as well? Looks like aluminum?

    Cool frame. Give us an update once you get it built and have some ride time.

    If only I didn't have so many other bikes that I need/want! My next bike has those weird 23mm skinny tires and no suspension. Someday I'll actually need a FS, for now my pro29 is keeping me all smiles. I imagine upgrade-itis has set in for you now that the JET has a couple years on it...

    Nope. Not yet. I'd have to sell a kidney even if I did have an itch. I already got my upgrade this year via a rebuilt rear hub and a new chain for the JET which is about all my budget allowed this year.

    Yes, your back has another decade in it before you start begging for squish.

    Thanks for posting that elegant MX Divide on this Lynskey thread.
    I was trying to get an all ti rear triangle (like my good ol WTB Bon Tempe), and avoid major carbon bits.

    And wanted 120mm setup.
    12mm rear axle a bonus.

    Monarch is very appealing.

    Looks like their old Niota but with awful/poorly thought cable routing and NO water bottle mounts. Are you suppose to wear a camel back on a "race" bike??? .

    Also that rocker does not look like Ti.

    Wow this is an impressive effort from Lynskey. A few observations:

    1. The frame looks heavy, it will be interesting to get final specs.
    2. It is very different from the Moots, they are both Ti, but that's where the similarities end. 100mm vs. 120mm, and radically different geometry. The moots top tube goes right into the rear shock, on the Lynskey it goes all the way into the seat tube. One of many differences.
    3. I'd like to see them offer an 100mm travel FS bike, I would disagree with the presenter on the video that anything less than 120mm and you should be on a hardtail. But I can understand whey they would start with 120mm.
    4. I can't help but think the geometry on this is a bit unrefined. It is very complex and looks very difficult to manufacture. Ti FS bikes are in their infancy it seems.

    The first 29" FS bike was Ti front to rear. Pic from 1999.

    Funny how things haven't changed all that much, except for peoples perception of 29"ers.

    I just don't think this looks well thought out...



    Interested in reading some reviews from independent parties. Don't think anybody that shells out that kind of money is going to admit its a noodle.

    Looking at the geometry of the Lynskey and the Moots, I think the only cable routing change they could have made would have been a top pull front der.. Agreed on the water bottle mounts -- odd that they didn't include at least one mount. Guess you'd have to shove a bottle in your jersey, or duct-tape it to the top tube

    That bike is BADASS!!!

    I was looking at the Moots and my LBS said the frame would be close to 5 grand. That price made me choose the Pro. I can't wait to get this bike.

    I see no resemblance to the Niota, other than the general shape of a full suspension bike and made from titanium. Front triangle, geometry, linkage-all different.

    Production model could have downtube mounts.
    Some people mount a bottle cage to their seatpost.

    But hey, if you need to be critical.....
