Lynskey’s mostly moving forward, with surprisingly long travel, endure-inspired Boost mountain bikes and creating lots of new road disc brake options. Basically all models except the 460 crit bike get disc brake versions. Well, that and this new Legacy road bike that’s shaped like the classics.
The Legacy is a new throwback bike with old school road geometry and lines, like a level top tube, matched or closely matched seat tube and top tube lengths (the 56 has exact matches). The point? to celebrate Lynskey’s 30th anniversary, a milestone decorated with special dropouts and other features…
Their new TSL 3.1 triathlon bike gets Dan Empfield’s FIST (Fit Institute SlowTwitch) approved geometry with a 78º seat tube and adjustable dropouts so you can tuck tires as small as 23mm up super close to the seat tube. That means It’s aimed at long distance racers that want a more comfortable ride compared to a stiff carbon frame. Top tube is somewhat flat, and they’ll add mounts for any bento box storage. In front of that is a 44mm head tube so you can run straight or tapered steerer.
Long travel titanium mountain bikes are a rarity, but Lynskey’s expanding and updating their line with just that. All full suspension bikes and high end hardtails are now Boost 148 rears.
The Summit 29er FS bikes now have a longer 140mm option (up from 120), and the 27.5″ gains a 165mm travel option (up from 140). Shorter travel options remain, too.
Front triangles on the longer travel bikes are similar to before, but get revised BB sections to work better with the Boost rear end.
