Any Lynskey owners out there who still have their frames intact? If i am to believe internet chat they all break but that cant surely be true. Theres a huge Lynskey owners thread over on MTBR and they seem fairly happy with their bikes. I am in the process of buying a Lynksey built Kona frame hence the question. The ones that i have seen online that have broken seem to have had most of their problems around the seat tube/top tube junction. I understand that from 2011 onwards Lynskey has been building their frames with a 27.2 internal diameter seattube as opposed to the 31.6 which i think is to strengthen this area. can anyone confirm or deny this for me please?
I know that some have broken at the dropout but the Kona has different dropouts from the original clover leaf design which i think was the one apparently prone to breaking plus surely if you build the amount of frames Lynskey does some of them must break
