2015 Lynskey R240 Road Frame and Fork
There's good reason that the Lynskey R240 is their most popular frameset as it's fully capable to handle the performance demands of competition all the while providing enough comfort to make your longest of rides a superbly pleasant endeavor. Lynskey's decades of experience in the realm of titanium shine brightly in the shaping of the R240's 3AL/2.5V titanium tubing. Its downtube is bi-axially ovalized to increase the frame's stiffness and responsiveness while the chainstays are oversized to maximized lateral rigidity. To help smooth out the ride the R240's seatstays are curved and ovalized for optimal comfort. Additionally, the pro level tapered and integrated head tube provides even more front end stability and stiffness as it makes room for a tapered steerer tube fork. Staying true to tradition, the frame sports a classic 68mm English thread bottom bracket shell, clearance for 700x28c tires, while the natural titanium finish ensures every fellow cyclist can be envious of the meticulous craftsmanship in the frame's construction.

Included with the R240 frame is the perfect fork to deliver optimum performance on up-tempo ride situations - 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. When taken together as a whole, the R240 frame plus full carbon fork provide the means to push your limits as well as enjoy the comfortable ride quality unique to titanium.

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 R240 Road Frame and Fork:

This is my second Lynskey Titanium Frameset and Fork as I also own the Helix Sport Frameset and Lynskey #1 Curved Fork and I also own a Litespeed Titanium Vortex Frameset that was built by Lynskey before he started his own company.

They all have immaculate welds and finishing. I am not a big fan of decals (which is what is actually on this frame) as they are easily damaged. If you order direct from Lynskey you have other detailing options that are more durable and expensive (etched or lazer cut metal).

Be aware that the R240 Frameset has a large tapered Headtube and requires a Cane Creek 42/52 integrated Headset. Cane Creek DOES sell a series 40 headset in this size but Does NOT seem to have the better 110 series in this size (the 41/52 size will not fit). You either need to purchase the Headset Top and Bottom separately or you can get a 110 series 42/52 from Lynskey directly (Black Only) for $115 + $12 for shipping.

The R240 has a normal size Bottom Bracket and does not use the larger PF30 like my Helix and some of the other more expensive Lynskey Framesets.

The R240 is almost identical to my older Litespeed Vortex in looks (curved seatstays) and dimensions. The Vortex does not have the Large tapered Head Tube and is built entirely from 6/4 tubing instead of the R240's 3.2 tubing but they both have a real smooth ride over long distances.

The Lynskey #2 Straight Sport Pro Tapered fork that came with the R240 Frameset has 45 degrees of Trail compared to my Helix's Lynskey #1 Curved fork with 43 degrees of trail so it is slightly more layed out as the R240 is not designed specifically for racing.

The finish on the Lynskey #2 fork is not as nice as the #1 fork and is not as dark black and has some small blotches in the finish. The finish does not effect the ride in any way though. I will have to see how the fork dropouts hold up as my #1 fork has lost some of the black coating where the skewers grab (which I have not had happen on any other brand Carbon fork).

I am 5'10" and the M/L work out perfect for me with a 100mm Stem. I have it built up with a 11 speed Dura Ace Compact groupset.

A Lynskey Titanium frame will never be as light as some other high end Carbon frames so you weight conscious folks will have to look elsewhere. If you are looking for a gorgeous Titanium Frameset and Carbon Fork that is great for long rides (that are not a dime a dozen) then get a Lynskey as it will last a lifetime.

If you load it up with high end components it will come in at 17-18 pounds rolling out the door (seat bag and pump included).

Comments about Lynskey Performance 2015 Lynskey R240 Road Frame and Fork:

This frame is solid! I currently use it on my Wahoo Snap trainer. My only disappointment is that the photo on the Nashbar website shows the frame with 3d logos. The logos are actually black labels.
