Lynskey GR270

We are very proud that we are a Lynskey Titanium bike dealer,  We have sold these bikes since 2013 alongside our other brands Trek, Cannondale and Argon 18.

The fascination with titanium bikes is from the love of everything engineering.  Titanium is a complex and difficult material to work with, and because of this every frame has to be hand built at the Lynskey workshop in Tennessee with beautiful lathes, milling machines and welders.

We continue the personal touch here by allowing the customer to customise each and every detail.

DT 240

Specially built wheels by our very own Nic Pow at RBW from start to finish.

We went with the legendary  DT Swiss 240 hubs and the tough but also  lightweight Stans No Tubes, Grail MK3 rim.

GR270 Workshop

A bike fit is included with every build to find the best position

We have built several Lynskey GR250 and GR260 models, every build has used the Sram 1X 11 groupset, so it was great to use Shimano Di2 for the first time.  The Di2 cables were hidden inside the frame with no visible junction boxes on show.  Very few Di2 bikes ever look this clean.

The Absolute Black gravel chainrings look incredible.

The final product is something we are very proud of, the whole team were involved from start to finish.

Thank you Tom and Nic 

The final bike weighed 19.2 Lb, 8.72kg
