Lynskey R255 Ultegra Titanium Road Bike (2014) (Industrial Mill/Black)
This product was added to our catalog on November 28, 2014.
The Lynskey R255 is comfort, handling, quickness, durability and lightness combined into one package. Built with a 3/2.5 seamless triple butted tube set that ensures a quick pace and a head tube angle that provides precise handling, the R255 is sure to keep you riding with a smile no matter the distance.
Within the realm of our Pro and Sport series, the R255 is the only non-shaped, fully round tube model that we offer. So many of you asked us to build that classic riding and looking, relaxed geometry, elegant frame, and we listened. Tire clearance for a 28c tire was also on your wishlist, therefore the R255 should be the new bike to check all the boxes.
Check out this glowing review from Ride On magazine: Lynskey R255 Review
Great for the most discerning cyclist:
Whether you are strictly a weekend enthusiast occationally putting in a 30 miler or a veteran century rider tracking how many times you've theoretically circumnavigated the globe, the R255 will bring a smile to your face every time you get on it.
The R255 has the ability to soak up those long stretches of rough surface that you regularly dread on your other bikes, but still accelerates with a flick of the pedal. This frame will not beat you up. Go out for dinner and a dance the same night you ride your first 100 miler.
It responds instantly from your input, whether it be a quick burst of acceleration on the last roller of the day or while negotiating your favorite sweeping descents with predictable, almost automatic, handling.
Just like all Lynskey bicycle frames, the R255 is hand made in Chattanooga, TN by the area's finest craftsmen. Lynskeys are made to last a lifetime. Titanium is the perfect material for bicycles, not only is it strong and light it has exceptional memory and does not fatigue. Twenty years from now your frame will ride exactly the same, if not better, than the first time you rode it.
Before the tubes are meticulously mitered to fit together, a butting process is employed to trim excess weight from the center of the tube while not sacrificing strength or ride quality.
- Headtube angle that provide an unwavering handling.
- Triple Butted Tubeset shaves weight while not sacrificing strength.
