The Lynskey Ridgeline 29er ti hardtail is designed for cross-country or endurance racing, singletrack, and all mountain riding. Lynskey have tuned the multi-shaped tubeset to create the perfect blend of lightweight, quickness, acceleration, comfort, and durability in the way that only titanium can. The Ridgeline 29er has quick yet stable steering, but not to the point of being twitchy. They've added an oversize headtube to take advantage of the larger 44mm headsets which, with larger bearing surfaces, make for a more solid front end. This headtube also accommodates both standard or tapered front forks. The Ridgeline’s multi-shaped and cold-worked tubeset is designed to give a balance of stiffness and comfort. This is especially beneficial for endurance racing or long day rides. The massive 1.75 inch downtube provides the backbone to lock in the bottom bracket, while a firm bottom bracket area is the primary component in transferring pedaling energy to the rear wheel.
