    I am just wondering, should I call Lynskey or go to my LBS and go from there?

    I went to my LBS Gran Fondo in Nashville...the R255 has the same geometry as the Bianchi Infinito so it was a perfect fit for me/my style.

    Looks like a sweet bike Out of curiosity, why the Lynskey and not a Moots Vamoots or a Seven axiom? They seem comparable.

    I've had my 2014 Lynskey R255 for a little over a month now. It is a great bike, probably the last one I'll ever need to buy. It's smooth, stable, and has that classic look. I'm also pleased to ride a made-in-the-USA frame. It's set up with an Ultegra Compact 11-32, FSA cockpit, Lynskey TI seatpost, Lynskey Carbon Pro fork, Kysrium Elite S wheels, and Speedplay pedals. The only part I may upgrade is the Lynskey saddle.

    sweet. My 255 is 3 months old now and loving it. The Lynskey saddle is way too narrow for me. I was very uncomfortable. Everything has been great since I swapped that out. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

    I placed my order for a medium R255 this past weekend - I think I got the last 2014 medium in captivity from Chain Reaction (something is screwy about ordering a Chattanooga, TN made frame from the UK, but never mind). Really looking forward to building this rig up with Campy Record 11S, and a bunch of other hand-picked components. And really, really looking forward to that first ride!
