2015 Lynskey R140 Road Frame and Fork
Brand new for 2015, the Lynskey R140 Road Frame and Fork provides real-world affordability that is firmly steeped in three decades of high performance titanium bike building heritage from the Lynskey brothers. If you've had your heart set on riding an American-built titanium masterpiece, the R140 proves that great value can be paired with great performance, and it doesn't have to come from Taiwan or China to be reasonably priced. The R140 features Lynskey's Sport Geometry that's responsive, quick, nimble, but buttery smooth for your epic solo adventures or spirited group rides out on the road. The frame is constructed of certified aerospace grade 3AL/2.5V straight-gauge titanium tubing for efficient power transfer and handling confidence. The R140's smaller diameter titanium tubeset provides a reduction in weight while still delivering incredible predictability in handling each and every ride. Additionally, the R140 is specifically designed to be more compliant in areas that maximize all day comfort in the saddle for the never ending ride. Staying true to tradition, the frame sports a classic 68mm English thread bottom bracket shell while the natural titanium finish ensures every fellow cyclist can be envious of the meticulous craftsmanship in the frame's construction.

Included with the R140 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. The fork and frame can both clear tires up to 25c in width for a plusher, forgiving ride.

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 R140 Road Frame and Fork:

    Had my old Nashbar aluminum/carbon frame bike stolen, and it was quite some time before I found a frame that sparked my interest for a rebuild.

    Built this as a 1x9, as I live in a valley. Was surprised by the frames ability to absorb the pitiful roads here in sacramento.

    This frame is also a ROCKET. Jump on the pedals to make a light and this thing just takes off!

    Very light as well (mine, with the headset cups pressed in weighed only 3.19 lbs) Resulting in a total bike build of 18.5 lbs.

    If you are a geek like me, you will find the hand-welds to be shockingly good.

    Comments about Lynskey Performance 2015 Lynskey R140 Road Frame and Fork:

    My bike is the older Peloton which is the same as the R140 just renamed.

    My setup is Shimano 105 with Ultegra rear derailleur, and a Enve 2.0 fork.

    I ride long distance usually averaging 70 miles a ride, and this bike is the most comfortable bike I've ridden, road vibrations and shock are absorbed better than any other type of frame material I've ever ridden, it has a silky smooth ride, I've done 120 mile rides on it without comfort issues...just muscle issues but that's not the bike's fault! It's very responsive with razor sharp handling and it surges when hammered.

    The frame and fork will accommodate up to 28mm tires which most bike manufactures won't. The finish is brushed which is the best finish to have if it gets scratched, you simply take a grade A Scotch Brite pad and polish in the direction of the grain in the metal. Care for it is simple and fast, hose it down and than use Lemon Pledge to polish it or leave it all natural which all titanium if left natural will turn blotchy but that can be eliminated with Pledge or WD40.

    This frame is the least expensive of the Lynskey line of frames but it's the best value in their line. If you want a titanium frame but are afraid of the cost, this price point takes that fear away and you get a high quality product, this frame won't leave you wanting a better titanium frame. And at the sale price being offered by Nashbar you would silly not to buy one!
