    Probably a noob answer but that minimalist design looks like the lightest way to build it, an awesome bike anyway if you can afford it.

    Lynskey is a solid name, not so much in the fat tire world in my experience. It looks like a solid frame, but not my taste for the price.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    Nothing wrong with single-pivot - - been a staple of Yeti, Santa Cruz and many others for years. Gad! . . . I'll take a complete SB95 (or better yet, an SB66) at those kind of prices.

    good bike but horribly overpriced. if you can afford it and REALLY like titanium, get one. otherwise choose an aluminum bike or even carbon for less.

    Hi it seem that everyone notice the price before anything . is not that much more than those other big names companies out there offering a FULL SHIMANO XT Carbon bike. plus this one is Titanium.

    Continuing on topic about the bike/frame. I was wondering more about the design how would it compare to something like the trek superfly 100, they both have the lower pivot at different locations. the Linskey have it above and in front of the bottom bracket. while the trek sf 100 above and inline of the bottom bracket.


    How would the Linskey be as far as pedal efficiency, braking and pedal kickback.
    would you feel the pedal bob, inefficiencycy under braking etc.

    Lynskey claim good Acceleration Anti-Squat, braking performance and Pedaling Performance.

    If you dont mind me asking what is that you dont like other than the price.

    I been looking at other bikes with full shimano XT and they are all at about the same price.

    I was also looking at a DW-link bike with full XT and that one goes for $5,641 then I saw this one being Titanium and it seem cool but I came to ask more about the design I dont know much about full suspension bikes.
    But it seem that the only negative so far is price. then I assume this design is good enough

    You are smoking the good stuff. You can buy XT-equipped aluminum FS single-pivot bikes for well under $3500 at full msrp, and far less on sale. But if you think $5999 is about the same, that says something about your ability to spend that kind of amount, so maybe this is the bike for you after all.

    I would buy a carbon VPP or DW-link bike for anywhere near that kind of money. Here's one example of many: http://www.competitivecyclist.com/fr...ima-17060.html

    I can't answer for Lynskey's specific placement of their pivot but, yes, the elevated-single-pivot/swing-link design is pretty tried-and-true. You'll see it here on the Transition Bandit (albeit with a more rearward location of the main pivot:




    On the Foes Shaver:



    . . . and on the Yeti ASR-5:

    Price is my only gripe. I like the twist in the tube. The overall looks rock. I would ride with pride. I still ride this POS I nicknamed "Widowmaker." XT/XTR for $1500., used, but its still as fast as I need to be.
