The new Lynskey Ridgeline 29 draws on the company’s Pro 29 but offers handmade in the US frame for considerably less cash, with a price tag of £1199.99.
Don’t think that this frame has been watered down to reach that price though, and features all the attention to detail one would expect of a frame carrying the Lynskey name. The profiled cold-worked titanium tubes come in a matte satin finish with a choice of black or white decals.
The headtube angle is said to be “quick but not twitchy” and there’s enough clearance for large crown forks. The downtube is oversized, the seat tube accepts 31.6mm seatposts, the dropouts are disc specific and the S-bend rear stays provide plenty of clearance. Three sizes, S, M and L, will be available. Lynskey quotes a weight of 3.1lb for the size S.
