    From yesterday's lunch ride. Early version Lynskey Pro 29. I am still partial to the bent top tube vs. the current monstrosity that is the helix top tube. Just sayin...

    loaded with nice features and fancy ideas. but the welds look kinda crappy, i am sure they will hold up but just not looking nice when getting closer.

    jbbikerider, looking at the second image down in your post it looks like you are using the Paragon Sliders bolt kit. I just put the same one on my Lynskey, and I like it.

    My question is, why are you using the locking hex nut and the knurled thumb nut at the same time? They both achieve the same job and you only need one, right?

    Jealous. Leaving for vacation (so is the builder!) while biding my time for my new steed. Nothing over the top, just a good old single speed. Keep the pictures coming to stoke the fire.

    Thanks for pointing that out. It came that way from Form. I guess it doesn't hurt anything but it does add some weight that's not necessary(joking). I just received a ti bolt set from Paragon to replace the steel parts on the Black Sheep. Also recieved my Homebrewed Components ti rear cog that's going on tonight. Should save 5-6 ozs total counting the kit and the cog change.

    Some lovely bikes in here...

    Excuse the shitty phone pic.

    My opinion, mmm, I prefer gelato to normal ice-cream.

    I'll agree with you there....it does look hot!
    What type of handlebars are you running?

    Besides using ti prep when building the bike, not much.

    It may require some hand brushing or polishing to remove blems and scratches acquired over time. Dents and cracks are repairable.
    Can even replace tubing.


    Just weighed an XL Lynskey Ridgeline at 4 lb.
    S, M, and L will be lowere.

    L/XL eriksen ventana full suspension weighs 2850g / 6.2lb

    XL lynskey pro 29sl with lefty head tube and sliding drop outs 1950g / 4.3lb

    a medium sized geared ti hardtail (no sliders) from a top quality builder should be around 3.5 lbs.

    My Potts. It has lighter rims on it now, but you get the idea. Love the bike, it's perfect.

    I understand that Black Sheep, and in my case Lynskey, have to save money where they can, but expensive Ti frames that do not come with the Paragon Ti kit?
    Seems like they should, and yes, I bought the same Ti bolt set for my Lynskey.

    Those were Soma Clarence bars (a beefier version of the On-One Mary bar). Currently sporting a carbon Carnegie (I like alt bars ).
    Let the market decide!
