The Lynskey, they are a steel frame right? What is their weight?

They are Ti and are made to make most men envious . They come in any finish...the big bonus is they don't wear out.
What F n F said...:D

For a metal frame they're pretty dang light...the Large I'm riding is listed at 2.75 pounds or 1275 grams. Not rocking the carbon frame weights we see these days but I wasn't too interested in that anyway.

Btw, Chainreaction carries them and I think they ship to your neck of the woods ;)
 
Not for myself but for my 16-year-old son: A suit, dress shirt, tie, belt and shoes for his end-of-schoolyear dance tomorrow night.

This Mom may shed a few tears when she sees her baby all dressed up and grown up.......

Edge cycles (IIRC) in Melbourne are a supplier, which is a coincidence since I'm going down there for the weekend in two weeks time. I'm in the market for a new bike as well.

Look what you made me do :D

Ya see how that works? :D

Almost the same thing happened to me...was in the market, always wanted a titanium bike...someone mentioned that this shop in Oslo sells Lynskey...stopped by, they had this bike and I rode it...and well, you get the idea. FWIW I had eyes only for this beauty in a room full, and I mean full, of Colnago, Cervelo, and Eddy Merckx carbon wundermachines :D

Definitely give them a look while you're in Melbourne if you get a chance. The good folks in Chatanooga will thank you!

various lightweight T-shirts, a microfibre towel and a couple of pairs of mtb shorts for my trip to the Netherlands at the end of the month.

Now just got to find a pannier rack that will fit my WSD bike :mad:

you mean red dead redemption? is it good?
It's pretty fun.
The small things like hunting are cool, shooting things form the back of your horse.The main storyline is pretty repetitive.

brewerjeff,

I'm currently in the process of selling off my 2 vehicles and very possibly consolidating to a Transit Connect. A couple questions; I see that the back seats in the wagon version can fold forward, but are they easy to remove if need be? What was your rational for getting the wagon instead of the cargo version for your biz, wouldn't the cargo have made more sense in your case? MPG says 22 cty/25 hwy, but what's your actual when loaded? What's the difference between XL and XLT versions? Impossible to find the difference on the Ford site for some reason.

Oh, I forgot to mention - also treated myself to my first pair of SPD's. Went out for the inaugural ride today, feeling very smug cruising along the lanes of Essex and getting up hills that usually half kill me. Until I got to the junction near my house, got my right foot stuck in the pedal and went splat into the the puddles....
