Lynskey has completely redesigned their ProCross cyclocross frame. New on the 2010 model is their Helix downtube, an ovalized/oversized/flattened top tube to make it easier to carry and a new “plate style” chainstay on the driveside to maximize clearance during really sloppy races.
The frame is Lynskey’sÃ‚Â race-tuned 3AL/2.5V titanium tubeset and prices start at $2,295 for the frame and go all the way up to $5,295 for full custom.
Hit ‘more’ for additional specs, photos and a video showing how they make the frame…
The Helix downtube supposedly increases bottom bracket stiffness.
The “plate” in the right chainstay keeps gunk from slowing down your gears.
Replaceable derailleur hanger…always a good idea on bikes designed to take abuse.
Slight S-bends in the seat stays offer some compliance while improving mud clearance and allowing for some pretty wide tires. Ã‚Â Lynskey says this frame is not just a road frame with brake mounts…it’s designed ground up for the rigors of cyclocross. Ã‚Â On that note, Lynskey offers a lifetime guarantee on their frames for the original owner, and all custom orders are guaranteed to perform as intended.
Now, here’s a video on how they make these frames, thick with the TN accent from their headquarters in Chatanooga.
