Lynskey Helix Sport Titanium M/L with Carbon Fork

$950 USD
I am selling this beauty of American craftsmanship along with brand new Cane Creek Hellbender headset bearings and the carbon Lynskey fork for the low price of $950. It’s gorgeous, it rides great, and it will last a lifetime. It is the M/L size making it approximately a 56cm frame. It uses a standard English threaded bottom bracket, quick release axles, and rim brakes. Lynskey has not changed the geometry on the frame, so all measurements can be found on their website. Seeing as it is titanium, it is in brand new condition and will be for the next 30 years. I have removed the stickers on the top tube and downtube to let the beautiful twisted titanium tubes shine in all their glory and the last picture shows how I had it built up this summer. I will also be offering up the frame for sale at the bike shop where I work, so act quickly if you are interested. Domestic shipping is negotiable, international shipping will be at the buyers expense.

Bike Check: Geoff Kabush's Enduro-fied Yeti SB130
@WAKIdesigns, sounds like there might be more of a difference between your 160 bike and your 125 than just 35mm of travel. In my experience, shorter travel bikes tend to be a little quicker on the getup and go than longer travel bikes. Also the associated geometry changes between the typical enduro and trail rigs makes for slightly snappier handling. There is no question that when you point your bike down an EWS track, you should probably have an EWS bike. How many of us are pointing our bikes down EWS tracks? Are you saying everyone should just make Downhill, Enduro, and hardtail bikes from now on? Is there really no use for the mid travel “trail” bike that is actually more suited for the riding most people do? My SB5 feels like a 5” travel hardtail, and I’ve got it built up like one of the Yeti 4Xs of old. I love the way this bike goes anywhere. I do believe it pumps, jumps, and accelerates faster than a heavier longer travel bike. But I guess that is just my experience. I don’t think I could race it on the EWS, but Yeti has and does. Kabush is an XC guy who went with the super capable trail bike instead of the super capable mini-DH bike. I’m sure he will be fine. Could even win.

Wow, @WAKIdesigns. If you are doing more than just climbing to descend, a smaller travel bike is actually pretty damn versatile, and in the hands of a skilled pilot the increase in response, acceleration, and precision is more fun than trying to monster truck your local XC trails. Yeah, you have to work harder on technical downhills, but it is more than made up for on literally EVERY other terrain you would ride. Not everyone wants a monster truck.

Video: Richie Rude Rides Heavy Flow
I’ve had the same thought. He is obviously one of the fastest riders in the world, and if there is a more physically powerful pro I haven’t seen him. I think he quite quickly finds the limits of components. Had a friend like him who used to constantly destroy parts. Super strong, super fast and aggressive, it took a while for parts to get to the point where they could survive a season on his race bike.

He rides as if he has something personal against every trail he is on. Like he wants to hurt it. “Poor trail. It’s ok. He’s done.” Love his aggression.

It’s the pilot, not the plane. If you feel good on your bike, doesn’t really matter what wheel size you are on. We get WAY too caught up in this debate.

First Ride: 2019 Giant Trance 29
By my guess, almost everyone on here has said that either 26 or 27.5 was better than 29 at some point or another. So I just don’t get who deserves to give that flack.
