As you consider your Lynskey options, bear in mind, that tube selection was highly important in developing what we would consider our entry level, or value oriented bikes. You will find in our Silver Series, smaller, non manipulated tubing which allow us to streamline production, meaning an overall cost reduction. Don't expect the same ride quality from MT650 or MT29 as you'll get from the Ridgeline or Pro Series. Offering three levels of both performance and budget should give you alot to think about, but also get the exact ride quality you are hoping for.
For over 25 years we’ve been pushing the boundaries of titanium technology to make the fastest, stiffest, most durable and comfortable bicycles in the world.
For our 25th anniversary we decided to take the sum of our engineering experience and distill it down to its core elements – the inherent strength, beauty and ride comfort of titanium – making it accessible to all.
The Silver Series MT 650 represents the best compromise between the agility of 26” wheels and the speed and momentum of 29ers. Built into the MT 650 package is, of course, the Lynskey heritage of optimizing the performance of traditionally sized straight gauge tubing for a balance of stiffness and compliance that will keep you rolling and smiling for years to come.
