Lynskey R255 Titanium Frame

The Lynskey R255 is comfort, handling, quickness, durability and lightness combined in to one package. If you are looking for the exceptional do-it-all titanium bicycle frame, you have found it.

Great for the most discerning cyclist: Whether you are strictly a weekend enthusiast occationally putting in a 30 miler or a veteran century rider tracking how many times you've theoretically circumnavigated the globe, the R255 will bring a smile to your face every time you get on it.

Comfort: The R255 has the ability to soak up those long stretches of rough surface that you regularly dread on your other bikes, but still accelerates with a flick of the pedal. This frame will not beat you up. Go out for dinner and a dance the same night you ride your first 100 miler.

Handling: It responds instantly from your input, whether it be a quick burst of acceleration on the last roller of the day or while negotiating your favorite sweeping descents with predictable, almost automatic, handling.

Durability: Just like all Lynskey bicycle frames, the R255 is hand made in Chattanooga, TN by the area's finest craftsmen. Lynskeys are made to last a lifetime. Titanium is the perfect material for bicycles, not only is it strong and light it has exceptional memory and does not fatigue. Twenty years from now your frame will ride exactly the same, if not better, than the first time you rode it.

Lightness: Before the tubes are meticulously mitered to fit together, a butting process is employed to trim excess weight from the center of the tube while not sacrificing strength or ride quality.

Lynskey R255 Titanium Frame Features:

  • Headtube angle that provide an unwavering handling.
  • Triple Butted Tubeset shaves weight while not sacrificing strength.
  • Geometry that puts you in a slightly more upright comfortable riding position for long days on the saddle
  • Wright style drop-outs with replaceable aluminum hanger
  • Headtube shifter bosses for easy access
  • 34.9 clamp-on front derailleur
  • 130mm rear spacing
  • 27.2mm seatpost for added comfort
  • 68mm English bottom bracket
  • Clearance for 28c tire

Answer: 
They are different stages in the natural finishing process used by Lynskey. The steps (and their corresponding finish) are listed below:

Step 1 - Every frame is bead blasted to achieve a smooth and consistent Matte/Satin look. This gives a darker grey colour to the frame (Matte Satin)
Step 2 - A machined process gives the frame a scratchy surface, very similar to what the raw Ti tubes look like when first received from the mill (Industrial Mill)
Step 3 - Literally every square inch of the frame is meticulously brushed with a 3M Scotch Brite strip to achieve a consistent, deep brush stroke look (Brushed)
