    The official PR on the MT29 and MT650:

    Lynskey Unveils Its New Silver Series of U.S. Made Titanium Bikes


    Five New Ti Bicycles with Eye Catching, Soul Stirring Performance at Unheard of Prices


    Chattanooga, TN – Feb 26, 2013 - America’s premier titanium bike maker, Lynskey Performance Designs, announces the Silver Series – five new models representing the family-owned company’s 25 years of design, innovation and manufacturing expertise.

    These new frames and corresponding complete bicycles are about to shake the titanium bike world to its core with Lynskey’s incomparable made-in-American workmanship, riding experience, durability and industry-leading customer service. The two road bikes, a touring/commuter, and two hardtail mountain bikes are meticulously handcrafted to Lynskey’s exacting standards using certified aerospace grade 3Al-2.5V titanium in the company’s new state-of-the-art Chattanooga factory.

    All of the frames will retail for $1099 and the complete bikes with high quality XT spec for $2499.

    The Silver Series offers dealers a couple unique opportunities – First, satisfying a broader customer base that’s looking for world-class U.S. handmade quality. Second, appealing to existing enthusiasts that may be weary of the “me too” glut of carbon on the showroom floor.

    “Our mission for the Silver Series was to distill all of our experience and knowledge about titanium into a family of bikes that takes our ‘cut no corners’ philosophy and delivers world class performance and quality at an unheard of value,” stated Mark Lynskey, co-founder of Lynskey Performance Designs.

    Silver Series framesets and complete bicycles will begin shipping from Lynskey’s Chattanooga factory by mid-April 2013.

    Interested dealers and consumers can contact Lynskey directly at +1 423-499-5815 or Lynskey Performance | Titanium Bicycles - Hardtail 29er, Racing Road Bikes, Customs, Components & Accessories

    Where was this 3 months ago when I pulled the trigger on my Motobecane Fly Ti 29er?!?! I would have paid another $300 for a Lynskey!

    Very interested. How does the MT650 compare to the Pro650? On paper they look similar besides thicker tubing.

    All yup. But, you have to go to the $2000 version - Ridgeline SL. Nice to see some quality frame models that compete with Carver bike prices. I too would like the option of sliders for 1g, though.

    Wondering how the MT29 differs from the Ridgeline VF model from 2010(had the 1 1/8 head tube and no plate stays)? Are the materials or manufacturing different?
    Seems like they'd be cannabalizing their Ridgeline VF sales unless there is some meaningful difference.
    Also agree with above...need a slider option.
    Your limits are both physical and mental. Suffering will help you find and overcome both.
