2015 Lynskey R265 Road Frame and Fork
The Lynskey R265 Frame and Fork is Lynskey's modern rendition of the classic road bike -- lovingly rendered in titanium, of course. The frame's double and triple-butted 3/2.5 aerospace grade titanium tubeset is responsive, compliant, and rides with silky smoothness - all while remaining laterally stiff. Featuring relaxed geometry for long days in the saddle, an elegantly designed simple round tubeset for a traditional look and feel, and curved seat stays for enhanced comfort, the R265 frameset may be the perfect long distance road bike.

Included with the R265 frame is a fork worthy of the frame's pedigree and on-the-road performance - the #1 Lynskey Pro Carbon Road Fork. Lightweight, stable, and precise handling, this fork sports a 1-1/8" carbon fiber steerer tube and utilizes a 3K carbon fiber weave. Taken together, the Lynskey R265 titanium frame plus full carbon fork deliver ride quality and comfort that's second to none.

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 R265 Road Frame and Fork:

Very Quality Craftsmanship what better than made in the USA!!! It is a work of art .Take in the whole package, welds ,clover leaf accents, chain stay drops, and brushed finish. This is not your everyday road bike.
After much long and extensive research decided on the r265.This has the geometry I was looking for and gives me the ride qualities desired. Unfortunately only one titanium dealer in my area , so comparison to others brands ti that is was not offered. My other bike is a orbea orca very nice and fast,race geometry so I can not compare apples to oranges.
Very pleased with smooth relaxed long all day rides. If you are looking for as I was the ultimate true smooth but totally connected controlled ride that keeps begging for more miles this is it, and thumbs up for Nashbar.
