    Post your Lynskey Pics!

    Here are mine from over the years. I started with a Ridgeline and upgraded to a Pro29. I'm in the process of trading in my Pro29 for a 2015 Pro 29 FS-120! I'll post pics of the new ride as soon as it arrives.

    Thanks. Yes that was a GS. I upgraded to a GS ADV and a pro29

    Now I've got an FS120 Pro29 arriving this week. I'm excited.

    What tire's are those? I've been wrestling with that choice lately. I've got the rest of the stuff dialed in. We live in NC and I've been running Specialized Ground Control which seems to work well for most of our trails. I was told by a trusted LBS that the Ardent is good too.

    I use the Specialized fast traks s works. I only use the S works where there are not many rocks. I use the std fast tracks for rocky areas here in Dallas area trails. I love the way they roll and they have great grip on hardpack / loose surface dirt. I have used the Ground controls also. They work great too. I have used the fast trac in the rear and ground control up front...this combo works really wel. I have not used the Ardent. You will have to give a review of the FS120.

    Ardent is very good. I have been running them on my FS140 with a stan's tubeless setup. They seal quickly with Stan's sealant. Very good traction as well.

    Beautiful bike. Can you also review the Carver Ti? Also how do you like the adamo saddle?

    I almost pull the trigger on the carver ti bar but couldn't do it because of the 50 gram of weigh penalty over my current carbon EC70 bar. But deep down, I want a ti bar on my ti bike.

    Thanks!

    I had EC90 Carbon bars before the Carver Ti. They were light and durable. No complaints. I switched to the Carver bars because I like the look of Ti and wanted to join the 21st century with +700mm bars. So far I really like the Carver bar. They are beautiful. Some will bring up the topic of stiffness when comparing Ti to carbon but I don't notice any difference on a FS bike. The weight difference is negligible to me.

    I swear by the Adamo saddle. I have had one a long time. I was one of their original reviewers back in the day. The point of that review was that I had nerve problems that caused toe numbness. When I switched to the Adamo, I could simply ride and not worry about the numbness. I get a bit a flack from some of the MTB guys but who cares if you can ride comfortably.

    The Adamo like the Lynskey FS might not be for everyone but they have made me very happy.

    I have a FS140. We are bucking the trends here when everyone is going with carbon bikes. But, I was sold by "Made in USA" and the price being equal to the carbon. Carbon bikes come and go, this one will stay a classic...I truly believe that.

    By the way, mine is the 2014 model. They must have cut some weight going with that 6.4Ti toptube because I can't get my full XT 2x10/ Pike/ Stans Flows to under 28lbs.

    It was between the fs120 and the Ibis Riley. I couldnt stop thinking about carbon chips, cracks, and creaks. The Ripley is very nice but I've been treated very well by the guys at Lynskey so figured they deserved the business.

    Pro29 tapered headtube, PF30BB, plate style chainstay


    Thanks in advance for your reply.

    The rear dropouts with the thru bolt indicates newer builds of the PRO29 model. Not 2016 due to the PF BB. I'd say 2014-15 PRO29

    Thanks for th quick reply.
    Both are 12x142 TA, but the Headtube and BB combination mixed makes me think what year model are those 2?

    On the first picture, the headtube (straight 44mm), the top tube (twisted), the drive-side chainstay (rounded, not plate like the second picture), and the rear brake mounts (not direct mount), all seem to suggest an older model frame. However, the 12 X 142 thru axle suggests a newer model (after 2013). Not really sure what year for the first picture.

    The second picture looks like it could have been a custom frame that had issues with the sale. Tapered headtube, PF30?BB, 12 X142 thru axle, all suggest newer frame. Top tube and brake mounts suggest otherwise. Wondering if the first three were semi-custom upgrades on an older model frame.
    It is difficult for some people to use the two words "too" and "to" appropriately.

    Thanks for the reply.
    If I'll decide to get one, which one to choose? I'd like the newer model between the two.

    Hi, yes. Got the medium Lynskey Ridgeline 29 instead, after checking all the reviews, I think I'll enjoy the Ridgeline as I am not into racing or competition.

    The Ridgeline is on its way already. I'm just waiting for the shipment to arrive.

    Is lynskey really that fringe a brand? Pretty quiet in here. Anyway, glad to have accepted delivery of my mt 27.5. Boring frame only pics but what I have for now. Plans and parts compiled for ss build. Looking fwd to completion.
    Coming along

    Finished product with Paul melvin tensioner. Didnt find the "magic gear". Will roll with it and look to build a rear white industries wheel in future. Stoked for now though.

    Maiden voyage. I get the ss alure. Love not thinking about gear shifts. Mash and go.

    There are some good looking bikes in here. I have a 2011 Ridgeline and a 2011 Cooper:





    They share riding with other bikes, but so far, I have around 14k miles on the two. They make a nice frame, that's for sure.

    Post your Lynskey Pics!

    Here is my Pro29
    Got it a little over a year ago. Since then the original setup has changed every other month.

    Went from
    - regular seatpost to dropper
    - a 70 mm - 17* stem to 50 mm
    - SPD to flats
    - 2x 2.2 Rocket Ron to 2 x 2.4 Maxxis Ardent
    - Fox (something) to RS Pike

    The picture is from yesterdays ride when i was on my way home (17k) from the trails



    BTW
    It was sup zero degrees, so the trails was so F'ing nice. Best ride for 3 months!!!

    Love your bike Buchreitz!

    I'm deeply considering getting a FS-140 29 in the next month or so. I've had my Lynskey Cooper for over 5 years and it's been nothing short of amazing. I'm looking forward to hanging on to it for another 10+.

    I was hoping you could let us know how the Pro29 is working out for you. I've had aluminum and carbon FS bikes but I really would like to get another Lynskey for the trails. You read so much about how Ti FS shouldn't even exist and I'm guessing that is a lot of people talking out of their ass.

    So any details you can give about what you like or dislike about the bike, design, riding characteristics, etc would be greatly appreciated. It's hard to find any real reviews of them out there

    Sorry, I never saw your post. It is a small frame. I'm not sure on the weight, because I never weighed it. Based on component reported weights, it should be around 22-23lbs.

    Post your Lynskey Pics!-lynskey.jpgPicked up one of their "specials" a couple of weeks ago. Basically, an MT29 rear with helix top/down and tapered head. 1770 grams for frame with hanger. i had a chance to weigh my 5 yr old chiner carbon frame during the swap and was surprised to see the Lynskey is only 355 grams heavier. 1x10 Shimano, Hollowgram cranks, Wolftooth, Answer 20/20 bars, Syncros fork, light but reasonable build. Weighs about 19.5 lbs all told until I figure out a cheap way of getting that 355 grams back (my gut?). After about 100 miles combined trail/road/gravel this is exactly what I was looking for. Essentially the same ride characteristics of my carbon that I liked but more durability and a little extra spring in the rear.

    New 2017 Ridgeline 29 HT build

    I just finished building this up:

    Post your Lynskey Pics!-img_2708.jpg

    Post your Lynskey Pics!-img_2706.jpg

    SRAM GX Eagle shifter/derailleur/crankset/chain/cassette
    Shimano XT M8000 brakes
    Shimano RT86 rotors
    Fox Performance 32 FLOAT 29 120mm fork
    Race Face Turbine handlebar/stem
    Race Face Next seatpost
    Race Face Atlas pedals
    Easton EA90 wheels
    Maxxis Icon 2.2 TR tires

    It's a Boost frame & fork but I'm using a non-Boost wheelset with spacers I got off eBay and I'm getting a tiny amount of brake rub when turning and weighting the front end. Either the spacers are letting the wheel move around in the dropouts a little or the fork is too flexy. I plan to get a Hope/Stan's Boost wheelset anyway; maybe that'll fix it, but if not then oh well. It's very minor rub so I can live with it.

    I'm going to be building a Ridgeline 29 hardtail. Has anyone had any issues with crank width or chain line? The frame has boost spacing, so has anyone been using regular cranks without issues, or does it require the wider spacing? I see a couple of pics with XT cranks and I'm very interested in knowing if those are the regular or boost spaced versions. Thanks for any help!

    I built mine up with SRAM GX Eagle with a regular-offset chainring and a 142x12 rear wheel with 3mm spacers on either side of the axle and a 3mm brake rotor spacer. The chain line is perfect (as it should be) and frame clearance is fine with my 32t chainring. I could probably run up to a 34t ring without problems but much bigger than that and it’d get tight.

    Another way to do it if you’re not using a boost wheel set is to buy a 6mm spacer for your rear wheel axle and brake rotor. That’d put the cassette in the correct boost position so you could run boost cranks; you’d just have to re-dish your wheel 3mm. I didn’t want to redish my wheel so I put spacers on either side of the axle.

    I know it’s a year old post, but this looks like a Pro29, right?
    What is specials, MT29 with helix top and down tube? Does Lynskey really releases this kind of frame (specials) ? Thank you.

    Comparing to their 2017 lineup when this was purchased the Pro29 had switched to a triangle shaped 6/4ti top tube and a 148mm rear end. This special deal frame is more of a 2014/2015 model as far as the twisty top tube and 142 rear, but welded up with their 2017 geometry. This just happened to be exactly what I was looking for so couldn't be more grateful for their special sale frame. My assumption is they'll occasionally have extra stock of certain tubesets they want to use up so they'll do a small run of "special" framesets and sell at a discount. If you find one that works for you then there's no better deal out there. If you have specific needs for the latest and greatest catalog frame then you're going to pay more just like anything.

    Just got my bike out on the trail. I really enjoyed it. Performs great and the price point was great as well. I've wanted a titanium hardtail for ever and so happy with what I got. Climbs great, descends pretty good too. SRAM GX, Cane Creek Fork, Magura MT8s, Stans tubeless.

    Arkansas Ridgeline FS-120

    One full year of Arkansas OZ trails abuse and no complaints. Climbs like a goat and doesn't break. I like that.
