Looking for a ride report, especially compared against other Ti frames.
Read a crude google translation from Tour mag so far as well as about someones build on Bikeradar. I've been waiting for summer to end before taking the plunge on a new Ti frame and these can be had at a significant discount. I would pair with ENVE 2 fork.

6/4 Ti front triangle
BB Drop only 60mm
Lynskey made

Stiff I assume?
Still soak up the road buzz?
Any good compared to your other Ti rides?



Me:
6ft
62kg
70-90mile blasts in the countryside are the usual ride.

If you don't mind how much can you pick one of these up for?

Cheers

It's here i'm guessing....

http://www.bike-discount.de/shop/k326/a ... -2012.html

Lots of questions over description / geometry / origins etc over on Bike Radar that are worth reading before hand though as a few people were querying the geometry differences to that in the reviews posted above.

Hey Guys, that's the correct link to the German shop and thanks for the further links. I did find the RoadBike.de article after the original posting.

Seems like a great frame at a great price but might be too racy for me.

The photo's you embedded are of the standard HPT not the 'Super'. Also available at a discount from the shop mentioned but I've seen a frame weight of 1600g tossed about which put me off.

What a great price! Are you still considering buying it? It shows that there are none in stock for either frame (which I assume is because they would order it from Lynskey once the customer buys it) but I'm not sure. BTW, I'm in Germany and see a lot of Cube bikes. I suppose that they are a German company (just too lazy to look it up to confirm).
