Lynskey Backroad Titanium Frame

The Lynskey Backroad touring frame is designed for fully loaded, self-supported, transcontinental touring and takes full advantage of current component innovation. There are several very important considerations in choosing your touring bike, and the Backroad addresses these very well:

Load Carrying Capacity:

  • Utilizing a 3Al-2.5V titanium tubeset, the Backroad is the strongest touring frame available.
  • There is no weight limit on the frameset. It will handle as much weight as you care to put on it.
  • The Backroad is fully outfitted with rack and fender mounts and 3 water bottle mounts.
  • The chrome-moly steel front fork has low-rider mounts, fender mounts, and has disc-specific brake mounting.

Braking/Stopping:

  • The Backroad employs disc brakes, a feature not found on most touring frames.
  • Disc brakes provide the best stopping power of any brake system
  • Disc brakes are extremely low maintenance
  • They are not significantly affected by water or mud and grime
  • You do not have to be as concerned about overheating on long descents
  • Should your wheel come out of true or you warp or bend a rim a disc brake system will remain fully functional
  • You will not have to be concerned about rim failure due to wear from rim brakes

Stability:

  • The Backroad is one of the most stable touring frames available. You will not have any shimmy or high speed wobble due to frame flex.
  • The frame is built using 3Al-2.5V oversized titanium tubing
  • A massive 1.75 inch (44.5mm) downtube and 1.375 inch (35mm) toptube provide excellent torsional rigidity.

Handling and Steering:

  • Steering is precise and unwavering
  • Front end stability is enhanced by an oversized headtube for the new 44mm headset bearing systems. This is also a feature you’ll not find
  • most other touring specific designs. This bearing system uses larger bearings which handle bigger loads and require less maintenance
  • The oversized headtube also allows the use of tapered steerer tubes.

Gearing:

  • The Backroad accepts a wide range of gearing options allowing excellent climbing while loaded
  • The frame is designed to use a 10 speed mountain triple drivetrain
  • 135mm rear spacing allows stronger wheel build

Durability/Reliability:

  • The Lynskey Backroad is the most durable and reliable touring frame you will find
  • Titanium provides the best combination of strength, durability, and weight as compared to steel, aluminum, or carbon fiber
  • Titanium will never rust or corrode and needs no paint for protection
  • Scratches and dings will not affect the safety and durability of the frame

Lynskey Backroad Titanium Frame Features:

  • Oversized Headtube, 1.75" Downtube, 1.375" Toptube, .875" Chainstays and .75" Seatstays substantially improve handling and increase stability under heavy load
  • 135mm Rear Spacing
  • Double/Triple butted tubeset
  • Rack and Fender Mounts
  • Fits 37C Tires with Fenders and 42C Tires without Fenders
  • 27.2mm Seatpost

Answer: 
This frame is compatible with an 11-speed drivetrain when ran with a rear wheel with an 11-speed freehub body.

Note that this frame has 135mm spaced rear dropouts making conventional road wheels not compatible.
