Lynskey Backroad complete on SALE! I love the look of this @lynskey_ti bike.


Are you gearing up for a fully loaded bicycle tour? If so, this month's promo is right up your alley. See build details below.
If you'd like the addition of S and S couplers to make this a Backroad Traveler, you may simply add the S&S couplers in the option dropdown.
The Lynskey Backroad touring frame is designed for fully loaded, self-supported, transcontinental touring and takes full advantage of current component innovation. There are several very important considerations in choosing your touring bike, and the Backroad addresses these very well:

LOAD CARRYING CAPACITY

  • Utilizing a 3Al-2.5V titanium tubeset, the Backroad is the strongest touring frame available.
  • There is no weight limit on the frameset. It will handle as much weight as you care to put on it.
  • The Backroad is fully outfitted with rack and fender mounts and 3 water bottle mounts.
  • The chrome-moly steel front fork has low-rider mounts, fender mounts, and has disc-specific brake mounting.

BRAKING/STOPPING

  • The Backroad employs disc brakes, a feature not found on most touring frames.
  • Disc brakes provide the best stopping power of any brake system
  • Disc brakes are extremely low maintenance
  • They are not significantly affected by water or mud and grime
  • You do not have to be as concerned about overheating on long descents
  • Should your wheel come out of true or you warp or bend a rim a disc brake system will remain fully functional
  • You will not have to be concerned about rim failure due to wear from rim brakes

STABILITY

  • The Backroad is one of the most stable touring frames available. You will not have any shimmy or high speed wobble due to frame flex.
  • The frame is built using 3Al-2.5V oversized titanium tubing
  • A massive 1.75 inch (44.5mm) downtube and 1.375 inch (35mm) toptube provide excellent torsional rigidity.

HANDLING AND STEERING

  • Steering is precise and unwavering
  • Front end stability is enhanced by an oversized headtube for the new 44mm headset bearing systems. This is also a feature you’ll not find
  • most other touring specific designs. This bearing system uses larger bearings which handle bigger loads and require less maintenance
  • The oversized headtube also allows the use of tapered steerer tubes.

GEARING

  • The Backroad accepts a wide range of gearing options allowing excellent climbing while loaded
  • The frame is designed to use a 10 speed mountain triple drivetrain
  • 135mm rear spacing allows stronger wheel build

DURABILITY/RELIABILITY

  • The Lynskey Backroad is the most durable and reliable touring frame you will find
  • Titanium provides the best combination of strength, durability, and weight as compared to steel, aluminum, or carbon fiber
  • Titanium will never rust or corrode and needs no paint for protection
  • Scratches and dings will not affect the safety and durability of the frame
