    Very clean indeed! I like that kind of attention for detail.
    What brakes are those?

    Pro 29er set up SS. I can't remember if I bought it in 2010 or 2011, believe it's a 2010.

    New Shoes and Old frame:

    Lynskey Sportive (R255 frame/fork above went to my Sister-in-law, components went to the Sportive)

    Shimano RS-81 C24 Carbon/Alloy wheels (Thanks to DCT for the reco. It only took me 6 months to buy them, try to sell them, decide to keep them, and then install them)
    Schwalbe One clincher tires - 700x28


    Tire sizes make me crazy!
    Old: Michelin Lithion2 700x25 (actually 700x27.8 when mounted)
    New: Schwalbe One 700x28 (actually 700x27.5 when mounted)

    *** Still not sure why I cannot take a pic that doesn't make the bars/shifters look weird.

    Kona was nice enough to include my Lynskey built Ti Rove in their "Ti Tuesdays with Kona"

    Sent myself down a rabbit hole with a line of enquiry after I sold my Klein - I'm now the proud owner of this Helix:



    Typically for me there's build refinements to come (Ti seatpost clamp, better headset setup) and I'm not sure about the fork & stem combo (had to borrow the forks off the Woody to get the bike together and figured I might as well use the stem too), but it's a quietly impressive and very well behaved bike.

    Well, aside from that seatpost head, that is. 8Nm my arse. Currently I'm just tightening it as much as I can and keeping my fingers crossed that nothing breaks...!

    If that's the older Enve seatpost head then the torque settings were changed by Enve on their own seatpost to 10 or 11nm so I'm shocked it's still at 8 on yours.

    I've always been intrigued by the price point of Lynskey frames. When they have their sales they seem to be such a great bargain for a ti frame, I've been tempted many times but haven't pulled the trigger yet on an actual Lynskey frame, I have owned a Kona Rove ti made by Lynskey though. Curious to see what your first impressions are!

    So far so very good. Sprightly, comfortable and planted. I like it*.

    Helps that it looks good:



    I had ordered a new fork, but this setup is growing on me so I might not bother changing it.


    *I may not keep it long, but that's just what I do with bikes!

    Rich,

    Do you think you can feel the difference through the twisted tubes?

    I’ve never really got it beyond a marketing thing. If it works, why doesn’t anyone else do it - in steel or ti?

    Is it just that it does no harm?

    I’m surprised, but I’m already starting to see the crank design as less hateful...

    Genuinely feel the difference? No - I couldn't tell you of a genuine difference unless I rode a Helix without twisted tubes; which clearly doesn't exist. Sure, arguably one of their straight tubed Ti frames would be as close as I could get to that, but I haven't ridden one of those since I owned one circa 10yrs ago.

    However, I do think it is probably the most carbon-esque ride from a Ti frame that I can recall feeling - by which I mean it feels much less soft and much more spritely than the other three Ti frames I've ridden in the last 5yrs.

    Your last comment: "...that it does no harm..." - probably sums it up best in my opinion. It doesn't not work (if that makes sense) and is therefore a good, interesting, quirky, divisive point of difference; and so why the hell not?

    Yeah, I hear you - it's actually grown on me quite a lot. Somehow it really works on this bike.

    This is my 2009 Lynskey R330. I've got 59,800+ miles on it so far (November is my anniversary). I just got a Campy Zonda wheelset and so far so good.

    Only original parts are the Rival brakes, derailleurs, crankset, handlebars and seat post. The saddle is a Flite from 1993 that I've recovered at least 4 times.

    I love it. Love the solid, stiff ride, love the look of ti and the finish.
