    This one?

    I'll write to Santa!

    hohoho, with all the extras (polished finish, graphics etc) an off-the-peg frame (just frame, no fork) costs a mere $5895...

    There's a video on their website too.

    what do you think imi nice or what.it has to be pretty light being TI ,would those wheels be on the heavy side i know nothing about disc brakes would there be a weight issue with them.
    overall it sure is one sweet looking tourer thanks for posting that link.

    experience has shown me a tube set for a touring bike, bearing a significant weight,
    can be too thin, flexing with every pedal stroke..
    but people judge by different values , and so adding another one to the market
    will gain some market segment.

    Not sure I would even spring for a bike like that even if I had the money. The geometry sure looks good however, especially the TT and HT lengths.

    I like the fact that Lynsky is producing touring specific frames and that tells me that touring is very much a live and well. Seems like not so long ago a person could only choose between a 520, Cannondale or maybe one or two others.

    Can't wait to see what Cervelo comes out with.

    yeah fantastic to see the big road boys get involved in the cycle touring world ,maybe now at long last we can look forward to a lightweight bike thats as strong as the toughest tourer out there.my thorn is a great bike but man is it heavy.
