    Thanks.
    The bike was built last weekend (Feb 14; so I'm calling it St.Valentine's bike ), so haven't got the chance for a real ride. Initial impression is quite positive. Rigid bottom bracket (Im not sure if the aftermarket BB helps, but I think the big flat downtube plays a big role), and the ride is quite bump compliant so far.
    Will let you all know soon

    beautiful lynskey, I'm thinking about getting one M230 too.
    would you tell me which frame size you have and how tall and heavy rider you are? thanks in advance.

    @gpa: very comfortable for long XC ride; BB is stiff. Suits me well
    @scalfred: it was 10kilos even with some dirt. Now it comes with Maxis Ignitors, so it should weigh more
    @marYn: 172cm; around 81 kilos ready-to-ride; It is a medium

    Thanks for info. I'm 183cm, 83kg and I've picked large.. and got it already :-) Can't wait for the headset to arrive so I can re-build my bike on this frame. My first frame impressions are it's very lightweight and looks damn good :-)

    paneristi, I'm just waiting for a Ch. King headset, I hope it will arrive soon. At least here's a photo of my frame. I bet it's the only one in Central Europe :-)

    I'm going to put some older stuff from my current bike so it may look similar to yours. White Fox F32, shimano XT crankset, front/rear XT derailleur, hope hubs with mavic 717 rims, formula oro k24 brakes, thomson seatpost, a temporary ritchey comp stem ;-) still lot of opportunities to fine-tune..

    why not tune bubu, or acros ceramics, or cane creek 110?
    I heard they are good.
    King is good, but a bit on the tall side, though

    I'm after red headset so my choice was between chris king and hope. Maybe I should have bought hope headset... At least the delivery time would be much faster. Anyway in my mind ti frame must have king headset so I wasn't much thinking about it. There are limited stock in Europe and the price is very high so I've decided to order one from US.

    What do you mean with "King is good, but a bit on the tall side, though"? Sorry but English is not my native language, I didn't catch what you mean.

    Hi everyone, here's my half-built Lynskey. Seatpost and stem are just temporary till I receive Thomson ones ordered yesterday. Also brake cables are not ready yet. :-)

    Maryn, looks nice. Which frame is that?
    I like to ride Bikes. This might be turning into an obsession, not sure?

    Hi, thanks. it's L-size (19"), Satin finish.

    @jjcools: Yesterday I got Thomson seatpost so I'm going to put it on the bike and after shortening brake cables I'll post new photo ;-)
    @paneristi: yes it's sotto voce. I wanted the original one with white labels but unfortunately it's not available around.

    Hi everyone, almost complete bike - I just need to shorten the brake cables. I used old components from my former bike so it's not brand new as paneristi has. :-)

    Thank you! :-)

    I did some upgrade since my last photos. Now there's Thomson stem and shadow XTR rear dereilleur. Next step is new crankset but it will take some time

    Beautiful Lynskey's, everyone!

    I think we need a dedicated Lynskey forum. Moderators?
