Lynskey R265 Ultegra Road Bike
The Lynskey R265 Ultegra Road Bike 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.

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.

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 R265 Ultegra Road Bike:

    This is an update review, after a few more rides. The bike is very well designed and assembled, and everything just works. For me, the geometry and riding position are very good: easy on my back, well-balanced and comfortable. The bike is very smooth, even on our usual bad roads. I'm still drawn by its beauty: clean lines, classic look, and a nice contrast between the grey Ti and black components. I'm still on the fence about the saddle: I've saved my old one from my former bike, but want to give this one a fair chance.

      Comments about Lynskey Performance Lynskey R265 Ultegra Road Bike:

      An elegant bicycle. Accelerates and climbs well, absorbs bad pavement so you don't know its there, and feels like it belongs between your legs. The bike came nicely adjusted and well-protected in its case, and assembly was straight-forward. The new Ultegra is much crisper than my turn-of-the-century Ultegra (also a lot newer). As far as I can tell, this is the same bike Lynskey is selling, with the same components.

        Comments about Lynskey Performance Lynskey R265 Ultegra Road Bike:

        I wanted a bike with a smooth ride that I could use for short fast club rides or long days in the saddle. the R265 does both. I replaced the stock saddle with a Selle Italia Flite, but that would happen on any bike I bought. Even though this bike is designed for comfort not for racing , it is not sluggish or unresponsive.

        A great "all-around" road bike with low gearing (12-32 in the back) that could double as a "gravel" bike with some 28mm tires

        Another great product from the fine folks at Lynskey Bikes.
