    Lynskey Ridgeline for big rider

    Interested in a Ti hardtail, not wanting to shell out the $$ it will take to go custom. I am a big/heavy guy, but generally get away with lighter-duty stuff as I ride pretty smooth. This bike's purpose in my "quiver" will be for longer endurance-type rides - 4-8 hours in the saddle type of thing. I have a "tough build" full suspension 29er, as well as a light rigid scandium 29er. This Ti bike will have a full drivetrain and a suspension fork (maybe a Lefty).

    I am mostly curious about; How flexy is the Ridgeline? How's the tire clearance? Certainly it seems like a screamin value and much better quality than some of the other cheap import Ti stuff available...

    My ridgeline seems less flexy than my other ti hardtail ( van nicholas mamtor). I'm not super heavy (circa 185lbs ready to ride) and its set up single speed, seems realatively stiff but still forgiving in the typical ti manner. I'd say go for it.
