    Lynskey 310 Custom Build

    I am purchasing a custom ti lynskey (level 3 tubing/material) road bike and I was wondering if anyone out there has a lynskey and would like to tell me about their experience/ride/etc.? I read the ones on their website and talked with my lbs quite a bit about them, but just wanted more input.

    Thanks!

    In my opinion their rear dropouts are pretty skimpy. One good prang could spell trouble.

    lynskey

    So how did your Lynskey turn out....? Kinda surprised to read your looking for feedback after the fact, so to speak. Seems you would research the frameset before you put down a couple thou deposit....! I'm currently contemplating buying one myself, but am still looking for feedback on the frameset. Is there a Lynskey dealer in Austin? I used to patronize Freewheeling when we lived there, back when. I'm sure the scene has changed considerably since then.

    I'm not surprised.

    Those spindly dropouts are just plain stupid in my opinion. They are doing it to look sophisticated and lithe. Marketing power over engineering.
