    Orange is the best color! But being married to a Texas Aggie, my Orange wearing, kit sporting days are over. Great looking bike.

    Wifey's R255 Build for Dallas MS Ride

    Built my wife her first roadbike, R255 XS Industrial Mill, this past winter with full Rival, Fulcrum 7s, Fabric Scoop saddle, Shimano R550 pedals, and some Performance pieces (tape, alloy post, stem, and handle bars). All in I was about +/- $1,900. Recently added a Lezyne Macro GPS unit with cadence and speed sensor which was another $140. I think the Lynskey frames from their ebay site are great values. No guarantee on the winning bid, but it enabled me build up a "for life" bike at a reasonable cost. I find the ride to be lively vs my Domane. Not knocking Trek. IsoSpeed is real. That thing is butter, but just a different feel and more isolation from the road than I probably really want.

    I posted for input on a frame for myself, would appreciate your input. Cheers!

    Is that an Easton EC90 0 degree stem? What type of fork?

    Looks great. The new Tiagra looks high end.
    There is a fine line between a hobby and mental illness.

    Thank you! Yes on the stem...The Fork is Easton EC90, the painter was supposed to remove the logos and leave a matte finish but painted it flat black instead.

    Just adding to the pictures. This is my R240 I built this winter. I'm really enjoying it and the ride qualities. It weighs about 18.2 pounds

    Got my R260 (finally!) 2018 01 17

    The bike is FANTASTIC!

    I've got some problems with the company, though, and will spin that into a separate thread in the general area.

    Thinking of getting a r260 rim brake or Helix Sport rim brake from the Lynskey sale. Pretty sure of sizing from their chart at 6'2" I would take a large, geometry is the same for both. I'm after opinions on either. I like the appearance of traditional tubes of the 260 but maybe thinking the helix sport would be better performance??? Or have i over though this, I'm no racer, just like to ride fast when possible and i just want a bike i'll love for years.

    booge, I have never ridden a Helix but the odd tube shapes strikes me as gimmicky. I definitely would not pay more for it. I have an R240 which I believe is the predecessor model to the 260. I would not describe this as a racing bike, it has more relaxed geometry and a fairly compliant ride.
