Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Nice looking bike. How do you like it and what crankset are you running?

Thank you all.

I bought the frame through the Lynskey performance website. Their service is very good and the logistics is very fast.
I would like to thank their operations director Brett and product specialist Alex.

And David, although my frame is not customized, but he personally selected the pipe for me to supervise the production. Before the frame left the factory, he personally checked and confirmed the frame before sending it to me.

This is my first time assembling a bicycle. It took me three days at home and I was very happy.
