Lynskey Usa R330 Titanium Road Frame

Postby nyquist on Mon 9/May/16 9:18am

Lynskey R330 titanium frame. Purchased in late 2010. Made in the USA. Beautiful frame with Helix seat stays and has the ti ride quality that people talk about.

Head angle - 73deg
Seat angle - 73deg
Head tube - 185mm
Seat tube - 540mm
Top tube (horizontal) - 573mm
Chain stays - 408mm
BB height - 269mm
1 1/8th head tube
68mm English threaded BB

Frame has what looks to be a tiny hairline crack at the HT/DT tube junction. I discovered this back in Jan 2014. At the time I sourced quotes to repair the frame, which included:

$50 by an Auckland welding company that does ti frame welding for Kiwi Bikes
$100ish Specialised Welding Services Nelson
$150 by Laser Welding in Auckland
$200 Safe Air Blenheim
$240 Craft Components specialist frame repairers
US$150 by Lynskey USA (not incl shipping)

I decided to leave the frame as-is and monitored the crack. I don’t believe the crack has grown in that time. For info, I’m 75kg, and the frame has done about 10,000km since discovering the crack. Personally I would have no issue continuing to ride the frame, however, the new owner must make their own evaluation. A change of requirements means this frame is now surplus.

I do have other components available to the purchaser at additional cost:
Thomson seat collar
Thomson Masterpiece seat post
King Headset
Enve (Edge) 2.0 fork
Ultegra SL groupset
Fizik Aliante saddle & saddle bag
Schwalbe Ultremo ZX tyres
Front Wheel – Stans 340/Alchemy Elf/CX-Ray
Rear Wheel – H Plus Son Archetype/DT Swiss 240S/CX-Ray

I’m after $500 for the bare frame, other components negotiable.
Located in Auckland.
