I treated myself to a Marin Team Titanium 20th anniversary frame back in march 2007 as a 30th & wedding present. Completed three solo Mountain Mayhems (2x rigid, 1x fs) numerous Merida’s, The Darby Dare last may ect ect. Been very pleased with it. It’s built lightish but with dependable components due to the rather weighty engine! Have noticed other peoples issues but, touch wood, everything has been cool so far. I think you’ll always find someone who has a negative opinion about something.Posted 5 years ago
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 😕Posted 5 years agoron burgundySubscriber
I have a 2011 Pro 29 and mine does have the insert in the seatube so it uses a 27.2 seatpost. I am pretty sure that this is was changed to stop them cracking.Posted 5 years ago
I also beleive that it was the old clover leaf dropouts that broke and they dont use them anymore.
I am very happy with mine and would definitley recommend them!RikMember
Original non braced Ti456 fine here – mine was from the first batch and the one of first ever sold. So I’ve had it a while now and gets plenty of hard use in the Peaks.
The only ones I’ve seen crack of the Ti456 were from the owners using a stupidly big 200mm rotor on the rear of a hardtail – god knows why!Posted 5 years ago
