any big-boys want a fly new Ti gravel bike? Lynskey XL

its a brand-new Lynskey Ti gravel/allroad bike...sized XL...ready for flat-mount brakes and whatever else you want to hang off it. has a really-really beefy downtube!

bought this frame/fork and decided i have just too many projects going on. rather than build it up, figure someone else can enjoy the "new bike" experience -- the frame/fork is only a couple weeks old...BRAND NEW AND NEVER BUILT UP! also has the really sick Lynskey CF gravel fork and a cane-creek headset. also have a spare rear-derailleur hanger just-in-case.

frame is the "pro-cross" which is virtually identical to the "pro-gravel" but the top-tube is round instead of diamond. i compared the specs and preferred the geometry of the pro-cross to the pro-gravel, so that's what i chose. plus the round top-tube is just easier to live with. i had them omit the "pro-cross" sticker on the top-tube for a cleaner look.

take a look at the pics...included the geo-chart so you can verify if the dimensions will work for you. if you're curious about the ride, sparky owns the same frame and can speak to his experience!

asking $1400 with CONUS shipping included.

Yeah, same here, except that a 59cm TT has always been too long for me.

"Think Id be a L. My 59 tt days are n the past"

Appears to be the case for me as well.. I went with the L for the Mongrel, and made the right decision. 10 years ago, not so much...

Mine was supposed to Matte also, yours sez matte and is industrial mill. Mine came in between Brushed and I_mil closer to Brushed. My invoice also sez Matte.

BTW, for those possibly interested. My main comment would be how well it carries 650b. I stared out with 47x650 and about week two finished up the 700c set. I put 38x700 on those, and prefer the Linskey CX with the 650b. IMO, the BB drop supports doing both well, and especially the 650b. Something my 2015 Green Strong due to so much BB drop was too much of a compromise. So the Strong lives with 700C.
