His is SRAM Rival I think----mine is Dura Ace/Ultegra shifting. Mine will be 16 lbs with new wheels in a few days and some bling to juice up the looks soon.

That Colnago is DAMN pretty!!!!

Thanks Scotty----they are a very well made frame

Sorry---don't know how to post someone else's pic BUT there's a mountainbike on page 49' that has a really unique fork.

Never seen a fork like this before----is it a one-off or a production model? Beautiful mtb. :shock:

I assume you mean this one? A little assist. You need to use a photo host such as Photobucket. :thumbup:

So, here goes. I had posted these to the Introduce Yourself.

Yes, I have two Titanium Lynskey bikes.

Image

I got the Lynskey Helix OS in 2011 as my first real road bike and was/am very happy with it. I had set it up as a training bike with the sturdy training wheels with HED. C2 rims, 28f2x/32r3x CX-Ray spokes, and WI MI5/H3 hubs; though it still came in at a respectable 7.1 Kg. Well, I was/am very happy with it - I had increased my ride ability from 500 miles/year to over 450 miles/month, increased my average speed from 15 mph to 19 mph, increased my average longest ride from 30 miles to 60-70 miles twice every weekend, and lost almost 20 lbs in a year. I now have ridden almost 7000 miles on it.

Frame: 2011 Lynskey Helix OS Size S Bright Brushed, Etched Logo, Etched Name
Bottom Bracket: SRAM PF30 Endura 3 Ceramic Bottom Bracket
Brake Calipers: 2012 eeBrakes Silver with Swissstops Black

Well, Lynskey was re-introducing the R330 as limited test run in 2012 and I made the mistake of talking to Don Erwin, their sales manager, about the bike. He made me a super offer that I could not refuse (well, I could but I did not) - I ended up getting the frame, with bright-brushed finish and etched logos for less than $1500. So, referring to my childhood days, I would have to say that, Don Erwin made me do it, it is not my fault. I put together the R330 with more sensible components as I upgraded my Helix and got a SRAM Quarq power meter. All built up, it weighs 7.8 kG but is a super comfortable bike with less aggressive geometry eventhough the R330 and Helix OS are set up almost identically. I have ridden only a 1,000 miles on it but have ridden two centuries on it already. I think the slightly less aggressive geometry similar to the R230 and combined with the diamond-shaped Ti tubing delivers a ride probably very similar to the standard Helix for half the price (for me). Value-wise, it is a homerun, hat-trick, triple-double, touchdown (any other sport analogies?).

My stylistic preference for bikes seems to be oscillating between "fancy" and "subtle", so after having spent a few years on a racy-looking carbon steed, I could not pass up on this NOS no-name raw Ti frame bargain. This is the first iteration of a build for leisure rides and utility/gravel/rain/rando duty. Tweaks are likely to come over time, including the possibility of a 650b conversion and use as a travel bike.

Frame: no-name raw Ti
Fork: Colnago Star 1"
Handlebars, stem, seatpost, headset: Ritchey WCS
Spacer: FSA Carbon 1"
Bar tape: Fizik Performance
Saddle: Selle San Marco Phobos
Group: Ultegra 6700 unless noted otherwise
Crank: FSA Carbon Pro Elite Compact ISIS, SKL BB
Pedals: Ultegra 6600
Cassette: Shimano SLX 11-34
Brakes: Sram Apex
Cable housing: Nokon
Chain: KMC X10SL
FD clamp: BBB
Bottle cages: BBB
Wheels: Mavic Open Pro Ceramic 36h, 3x DT Swiss Aerolite, XTR 965 front, Ultegra 6700 rear, non-QR steel axles
Tyres and inner tubes: Vittoria Pavé 27mm, Continental Tour 28mm

Weight is about 9kg (bathroom scale). I seem to be more interested in the personality of a build lately, than grams.

Have had this Omega for a few years, but never ridden it much as I've leaned more towards steel.

Anyway, just had it resprayed and rebuilt: Extralite cranks and stem, KCNC brakes, Van Nicholas seatpost; had them polished. Put the new 9000 mechs and levers on; new Mavic tubulars with Veloflex tubs.

Came in at 6.9 kg, so I'm happy at that weight.
