Hi,

This is my Lynskey Helix OS size M. It weighs 7.0 kilos fully built including pedals, powertap and also including the garmin mount. I know it is not extremely light like most of the bikes you find in this site but it is pretty light for a ti bike with high profile wheels. These are the specs:

- Frame Lynskey Helix OS size M
- Fork: Enve 1.0 with custom blacked out logos
- Stem and Handlebar: Enve
- Seatpost: Lynskey ti
- Groupset: Campagnolo SR 80th anniversary
- Chain: KMC X11SL gold
- Pedals Look Keo Blade 2 ti
- Housing: Aican Bungarus
- Saddle: Selle San Marco Zoncolan carbon
- Bartape: Fizik
- Wheelset: Enve 6.7 tubular with powertap g3 hub
-Tires: Schwalbe Ultremo 25mm
- Garmin Mount: K edge red
- Headset: Chris king inset

This is my first ti bike and I absolutely love it! I could put it well under 6.8 kilos by changing the wheelset to a lower profile rim and getting rid of the powertap. I could also save 100 grams by replacing the stem and handlebar for some ax-lightness parts ( I already have stem and handlebar but Im saving them for my next build),and by replacing the tires and getting rid of the garmin mount but I absolutely love how it looks and I am a data junkie so I think it will stay as it is ja.

Thanks for looking!

That bike is a real beauty. Sounds like you are enjoying it. Love the bit of red accents you have put on the bike. Sounds as though you like the ride of the bike. Can you give a bit of a review of the Helix? What other bikes have you owned and are comparing it with? What about the Helix makes it special? I'm looking at this frame but won't be able to test ride it. Thanks alot...enjoy your new ride!

Really nice bike. I like it. Lower wheels could look better, but as ZIPP 808 owner, I understand why You keep these :-)
