Lynskey Performance Designs have been producing some of the finest titanium frames and accessories in one form or another for around 25 years. The Lynskey family founded Litespeed Titanium components in 1986, which was sold in 1999. It wasn’t long before they once again got the itch and Lynskey Performance Designs was born.
This is Ricardo Wang’s Lynskey M230, a 2010 model, for 2011 Lynskey has amended the M230’s layout with a curved down tube. Ricardo has dressed his up with a blend of Shimano XTR and boutique after-market upgrades: Hope X2 Race calipers and levers, Yumeya barrel adjusters and crank bolts, BK Composite carbon shifter brackets, a Syntace F99 stem with titanium bolts, Easton EC90 bars and a Tune Komm-Vor saddle. KNC ceramic jockey wheels complete a build that has resulted in a mountain bike that’s as much a finely crafted watch as a bicycle.
Big thanks to Ricardo Wang for sharing his images, we’ll look forward to seeing his latest build…
