2015 Lynskey Helix Road Frame and Fork
With the Lynskey Helix road frame and fork the titanium artisans in Chattanooga, TN have literally provided a twist on the construction of a world-class, high performance frameset. At the heart of this frameset is Lynskey's ingenious Helix Technology which entails spirally twisting the 3AL/2.5V grade titanium down tube and seat stays to increase the torsional, vertical, and horizontal stiffness of the frame. And to further maximize the frame's stiffness and power transfer capacity, Lynskey opted for a 6AL/4V titanium triangular-shaped top tube for the ultimate in a lightweight, rigid frame. A PressFit 30 bottom bracket, too, ensures rocket ship-esque acceleration and power transfer. The natural titanium finish ensures every fellow cyclist can be envious of the meticulous craftsmanship in the frame's construction, right down to the custom-machined cloverleaf rear dropouts which signify just how lucky the owner of this bike is.

Included with the Helix frame is the perfect fork to complement such a magnificent, race-ready thoroughbred - the #2 Lynskey Pro Carbon Tapered Road Fork. It features full carbon fiber construction -- from steerer tube through to the dropouts - and sports a 1-1/8" - 1.5" tapered carbon fiber steerer tube that provides a superb ride while keeping the weight to a minimum. The uncut fork, with a 300mm steerer tube, in fact weighs in at just 348 grams. Taken together as a whole, the Lynskey Helix titanium frame plus full carbon fork provides a ride quality, level of stiffness, aesthetic excellence, and on-the-road performance that adds up to the bike of your dreams.

The Lynskey name has long been synonymous with meticulously crafted, world-renowned titanium frames and components. They flat out know titanium. They know how it bends and stretches. They know how it reacts and performs. When it comes to bicycle design, Lynskey knows how to influence titanium better than anyone else in the world. The art of machining, cutting, welding, and polishing titanium demands a meticulous focus. And in an age when nearly every bicycle on the market is made in Asia, Lynskey continues to build their titanium masterworks by hand in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Comments about Lynskey Performance 2015 Lynskey Helix Road Frame and Fork:

I bought this frame/fork (I'm 5'10" and ML fits perfectly with a 100cm stem) from Nashbar and built it up with Dura Ace drivetrain and wheelset, Elite handlebars, thompson stem/seatpost, and a cane creek headset. The only headache was getting the Dura Ace crankset on - I had to buy a very specific bottom bracket that wasn't very easy to find. Other than that, the bike is outstanding.

I had it up to 45 mph a couple of weeks ago on a century ride in the Appalachians and felt incredibly confident in the machine - no buzz at all. It corners like it's on rails and has that "fast" feel while sprinting and climbing, particularly when out of the saddle. It strikes an excellent balance between comfort and stiffness, and I have a feeling this is going to be my bike of choice out of an ever-expanding stable for decades to come.

Comments about Lynskey Performance 2015 Lynskey Helix Road Frame and Fork:

Great bike. Bought mine direct from Don Irwin at Lynskey. The ride is a little more forgiving versus the Moots Vamoots. On my bike, the welds were flawless.

I've put 3,000 miles on the bike. The one minor flaw would be having to re-pack the bottom bracket at 2.300 miles.

I had a 2014 for a short time. The 2015 is better due to the top tube design.

My 25MM Continental Gran Prix II clinchers do clear. However, it is a little tight. The chain stay bridge also makes things a little tight. However, all is great.

You can't beat the deal! This bike will last a lifetime.
