Don't know what the fuss is about either. It may be that the Ti bike is pretty indestructable and thats why people like them for gravel. The compliance of the Lynsky vs UPPER is hard to compare since I have not used the same tires. On the Upper, I use 700c 40mm tires. The Lynsky I run 700c 46mm tires or 650b tires 50mm-54mm.sebejo wrote: ↑Wed Jan 15, 2020 9:47 amSo what the fuss is about? Genuinly curios what you say about Ti frames ownig an UPPER as well.
I do have my UPPER and 3t Exploro Ltd set up more aggressive for gravel racing.
My custom OPEN WI.DE. is setup very similar to the Lynsky, which is a better comparison. The WI.DE. handles sharper and is a faster bike. With 2.35" Schwable Racing Ray/ Racing Ralph tires, you can ride most singletrack(most, since for true downhill singletrack, you need a real suspension fork).
