Lynskey R140 Ultegra Road Bike
If you've had your heart set on riding an American-built titanium masterpiece, the R140 Ultegra Road Bike 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. Included with the R140 frame is a fork worthy of the frame's pedigree and on-the-road performance - the Lynskey Sport Carbon. The fork blades are crafted from 12K carbon fiber to deliver stiffness and predictable handling while the alloy steerer maximizes durability.

Gram for gram, dollar for dollar, you'd be hard-pressed to find a finer choice than Shimano Ultegra 6800 11-speed groupset. You'll be blown away by how well this stuff works as so much functionality, precision, and reliability has trickled down from big brother Dura-Ace that Ultegra is a tour de force in its own right. The shifting is just perfect while the compact 50/34T crankset coupled with an 11-32T cassette provides a wide range of gears that can tackle long days in the mountains with aplomb. The Vision Team 25 wheels are stellar all-around performers that feature 25mm deep rims to strike a balance between aerodynamics and handling. The hubs utilize super-smooth cartridge bearings and radial spokes help you slice through the wind. An FSA Gossamer handlebar is paired with an FSA SL-K stem while the seatpost, too, is an FSA S-LK edition for lightweight, reliable performance over any terrain.

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 Lynskey R140 Ultegra Road Bike:

I have the older version of this bike called the Peloton. This bike is absolutely the best value for a titanium bike that is made in America. I've been riding mine now going on it's 4th season and I can't believe how well it rides compared to my other bikes or even bikes I test rode that even cost more than this bike. My bike came with Shimano 105 but I did have the 105 rear swapped out for the Ultegra, so far those components have performed flawlessly and I'm sure the all Ultegra version will perform equally as well and probably a tad better. With the mostly 105 components with a heavier Shimano RS500 wheelset my bike weighs 17.2 pounds, I suspect this Ultegra newer version will be 16.5 and maybe a bit less.

For you people who are not familiar with this brand, Lynskey is the original creator, owner, and builder of Litespeed bikes, he ended up selling the business but didn't like the direction the new owners were taking his former bike business so he started a new business using his family name instead to compete against Litespeed and other brands, all of this means Lynskey has extreme experience in building titanium frames.

If you are shopping for something different than the slew of carbon fiber bikes on the market and want something to last a long time while being comfortable and looking nice forever this Lynskey titanium bike will punch your ticket.

I gave this bike just a 5 star rating but that's only because Nashbar doesn't have a 10 star rating that the bike really deserves!
