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?

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

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).
