    Gr250?

    Anyone tried Lynskey's new gravel bike? I'm thinking about picking one up...

    I have seen that model and it looks sweet. What did you end up doing? Did you pull the trigger on one?

    Also have a look at Carver's gravel bike frame...about $700 cheaper...and made by Lynskey!

    Interesting, thanks! I wonder why they don't list the seat tube angle in the geometry tho.

    The Carver frame geo isn't as slack. Carver has higher BB and steeper head tube. There may be other differences?

    I long test rode a Hyper XC liked it a lot, considered the GR250 but bought a Cooper CX instead. The too cheap eBay price was the dominant varible.

    I decided to buy one a couple of months ago and have no regrets. It's become my main road bike with WTB Horizon tires (their "road plus" tires) because it rolls fast and smooth over cracked pavement. The 650b x 2.1" WTB nano tires that came with it are great on gravel. I haven't ridden it much with 700 tires, but they fit too. I'm 5'7" with a 30" inseam and the small is a good fit. Needs better bar tape, though.
