Updated from this...
When I originally bought the bike, it was intended to have Omniums on them, but because the chainstays were so fat, the crankarm spider would hit. Tom Kellogg didn't, at the time I addressed the issue, think to tell me to send it in to dimple the stays a bit further. Instead, I found a deal on some Campy Record cranks and proceeded to use those. Same isssue happened with the Campy's. I told Tom and he sent me a long BB to clear the stays. I settled for the problem without making a fuss for a couple of months, but it really was too wide. It wasn't until my friend told me I shouldn't have settled and revisited the issue again. Tom tells me to send in the cranks with the frame and it'll be taken care of. Done. Scored a deal on the Reynolds Recon wheels and now it feels like a whole new bike again!
Thomson Elite setback seatpost
Thomson X2 stem
Dimension flat top shallow bar with Stella Azzura Eleganza tape (the grip is really nice to the touch)
Reynolds Recon wheels (Bonktown special: basically Reynolds Attack carbon clincher rims with track hubs)
Time Atac XS
Profile Design Aqua Rack
Vittoria Rubino Pro/Vittoria Open Pave
Truvativ Omnium cranks (167.5mm)
In "rain gear" mode with fender and Vittoria Open Pave tires
Wound up fork
Another one...A few details left, but very much ride-able
^Those Easton bits look so out of place on that Lynskey
As is I agree but I think that an EC90 seatpost would really set it off by creating an "easton triangle" of sorts.
Well.....I had an AlphaQ GS30, wanted a Reynolds Aero. Couldn't find that and ended up on a steel for the Easton Aero
Edge Aero wouldn't look any better. I might get the fork, stem and post painted 'wet' black
Why aero fork?.........They work

i'll be able to post here so soon. excited!
Looking forward to see that build coming......I'll post my third Ti soon too as soon as I get a better shot
By the shape I'd guess it close to the Reynolds...Maybe a bit lower savings, but with less turbulence from the wheel
The seatpost is getting the first coatings atm
edit: The Reynolds would not be legal for mass start events due to it's side area to frontal area ratio

Roadie version, with 700x23c tyres:
Disguished as the ultimate dirt road machine, with 650bx42 Grand Bois Hetres:
It rides very well, a 2001-ish Colnago Titanio
Ohhhhhhhhhhhh you meant Ti bikes....sorry, I don't own any of those.

...just built up...DEAN El Diente Super-Lite. SRAM RED/Force Mix. HED wheels. Diggin' It!
My Lynskey, all set the way I want it:
Didn't weigh the frame, but bike as shown without seat bag is 16.4.
"...I thought about evening when the boys wash up, sing, eat, raise a cup of wine in honor of love and life, and waiting at the door, the bicycle, stilled, because only moving does it have a soul, and fallen there it isn't a translucent insect humming through summer but a cold skeleton that will return to life only when it's needed, when it's light, that is, with the resurrection of each day." -- Pablo Neruda
Holy sweet merciful crap, I love the dual purpose Amaro.
