Lynskey have been building beautiful titanium bikes for 20 years. Their Ridgeline frame offers all this experience and expertise and a lot of premium features at a surprisingly affordable price.
Its compact, relaxed and conﬁdent geometry is conﬁgured around a 140mm (5.5in) fork. The shamrock logo dropouts are reinforced with a brake torque brace and the seat tube top is internally sleeved for strength.
The combination of race weight and resilient sprung ride makes titanium perfect for long, fast cross-country rides. Diamond shaped main tubes also remove any excess twang and ﬂutter caused by the extra leverage of the longer fork. This means you still get accurate placement and line holding when you’re playing rough.
