How do you know for 100% it's built by "Lynskey" in Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA other than Planet X saying so?

Lynskey frames all come with Lynskey decals on the top tube and down tube (obviously this might be replaced with Px decals), "Made in Chattanooga, Tennessee USA ad Built by Lynskey" blue red globe sticker? on the seat tube underneath the seatpost and what about the famous red LYNSKEY badge stuck on the headtube? Does the bike come with some form of certification verifying that's it's Lynskey built?

Oh and let us know how it rides compared to other bikes (carbon, alu) you've ridden

:?: Responsiveness and acceleration when putting the gas down OR is it a slouch :mrgreen:
:?: Stiffness in the Bottom Bracket (BB) when out of the saddle sprints OR does it flex :mrgreen:
:?: Stiffness in the front area (headtube) OR does it flex :mrgreen:
:?: Comfort wise plush over 50+ miles or day long rides OR harsh and you feel beat-up :mrgreen:
:?: Any other qualities :?:


What type of finish did you choose for the frame? :arrow: doesn8t look like it's shiny satin finish, is it matte?

I can see a made by Lynskey sticker on the seat tube on this image...

Perhaps the Plant X is a Lynskey Cooper frameset? My Cube Litening is a Lynskey R330 just with Cube paint on it (again with a made by Lynskey sticker on the seat tube). Now that I've de-stickered mine there's no way to telk its not an R330...

FFS, it's not a Lynskey, it's a Planet X made by Lynskey for Planet X, so why would it have loads of Lynskey decals?

You can tell it's a Lynskey by looking at thing like the downtube cable bosses amongst other things.

Not sure what a troll is - and why Lynskey making frames for Planet X (or Cube) should be a problem to anyone - but I know your bike looks sweet (and a lot faster than mine!) and I know that ti framesets are 'da bomb' 8)

It's a shame PX don't do a version of this frame with mudguard bosses and clearance. At that price it would make a great winter frame

Hey nice bike!

Thinking of getting one myself. What size is that and how tall are you?

I'm just under 6ft and thinking of getting a large. I'm on a 57 bianchi at the moment.

changed the pedals and tires...

rides great, very comfy compared to my previous bike (alu+carbon). seems to be similar in geometry to the Lynskey R230 given the curved seat stays. can't say i'm a seasoned rider to tell whether a frame flexes or a BB is stiff so i can't give an accurate account, :noidea: the most i can feel are light vs heavy wheelsets.

Just bought the PX Sportive Ti and awaiting delivery - can't wait!
It's a 58 so hoping to build it into a sub-18lb machine.
White finishing bits (saddle, seatclamp, tyres and bar tape)
so it should look the biz!
Will post when complete, with pics.

1st post, btw!
If Wales was flattened out - it'd be bigger than England!
