    And what's not to love? That head tube is huge! I can see why you need custom.

    What kind of handlebars are those?

    I could very well be wrong, but I thought by Lynskey's nomenclature that "houseblend custom" was an oxymoron.

    Thats awesome. I am going to rebuild mu bike on a Linskey frame real soon. Those TI bikes are way sexier than plastic. AKA Carbon.

    What I thought was that:
    Custom level X = everything is custom, to different levels, depending on the amount of coin you lay down.
    Houseblend = production models
    Houseblend custom = production models with custom geometry.

    What a beautiful bike; I'm quite envious. You must be a big dude.
    I ride slow deliberately

    Good proportions for a short top tubed bike with long head tube.
    There is a fine line between a hobby and mental illness.
