UK importer for Lynskey Performance Designs

New titanium bikes from Litespeed founders

Distributor Hotlines is to bring Lynskey Performance Designs’ titanium bikes to the UK.


The Lynskeys founded Litespeed in 1986 and are sometimes known as “the first family of titanium”. They sold the business to the American Bicycle Group (ABG) in 1999 but are now back with a new venture.

Edward Ibbetson, of Hotlines UK, said: “We’re very excited about this relationship. There is a strong demand for performance-oriented titanium bikes in our market and the Lynskey brand certainly meets this need.”

Mark Lynskey said: “We are so very pleased to be a part of the Hotlines family. I have always enjoyed the cycling culture in the UK and am now honoured to have the opportunity to be a part of it.”
