There are many so called "high end" bikes in the market today, but 99.99% of them are run of the mill
production from China. However, Lynskey frames are still hand madein USA with aerospace
grade titanium & great diligence. David Lynskey started Litespeed in the mid 1980's and quickly became the world leader in Titanium
bike technology. He built the frame ( OEM Eddy Merckx ) that Lance Armstrong used to win the 1993 World Championship. Bobby Julich's frame he used for his 3rd place finish in the 1998 Tour de
France, and frames that Greg Lemond used in the early 1990's. In 1999 David sold Litespeed, and in early 2006 began Lynskey Performance Designs

In short – the R340 is an awesome bike.
Andy and Nick at BikePro built it up for me at the start of the year. I came from spending a few years on a S2. My riding program consists mainly of medium distance fast riding most of which is
done with a team. When I was looking at a new bike, I wanted a frame that was race-able but also something I would not be looking to dispose of within 2-3 years. I find that with carbon - cracking
and failures aside - I am always chasing innovation and the 'next big thing' and feel compelled to change over and upgrade regularly. One of the beautiful things of titanium is that whilst it has
sophisticated butting and tube manipulation, at its core it is still a 'classic' road bike with conventional tube junctions, traditional headset/BB/seatpost standards and a timeless silhouette
without ridiculous tube and junction shaping. The traditional standards also enable you to build the bike up exactly as you like without having to resort to proprietary items. The bike becomes
First impressions of the bike were immediately positive. Titanium tends to 'glide' along the road and provides an incredible ride quality. However when pushed hard initially I had a few
reservations as to its out-and-out high level performance.
This is where the differences between titanium and high-end ultra-stiff carbon frames gets magnified: after coming off a stiff carbon frame a rider needs to ‘learn’ how to get the most out of
titanium. This is what I have discovered:
The biggest factor here is titanium really rewards a perfect pedal stroke. On the S2 or any ultra-rigid carbon frame - your technique can be a little messy as all the energy ends up at the back wheel
anyway. This is not quite the case on the R340 – but when you dial it in just right, balance the power between your legs and focus on the sweep and the upstroke as well as the downstroke, the rewards
are magnificent. This is because there is a bit of ‘sway’ in the BB and not quite as much torsional resistance so any lateral imbalance is really highlighted. But when you dial it in – the ability to
hold speed whilst still ‘gliding’ is fantastic.
Cadence is paramount. This is related to the previous point. Really pushing a big gear does not work. I used to push big gears on the Cervelo and when I needed to go faster or accelerate, I’d push
harder. This does not work on the R340. However – by increasing cadence and spinning more – as you need to do to maintain perfect pedal stroke – this issue all but disappears. I find myself in the
saddle more both during climbs and fast riding, and due to the combo of revised riding style and the inherent comfort of the Ti frame I feel a lot better at the end of the ride. Looking at Strava –
this frame does not hold me back in terms of overall performance – but gives me a bike that’s damn enjoyable to ride, provides a point of difference to all the cookie-cutter bikes out there, no
stress with durability and leaves me feeling fresh.
Whether it's doing the fast Beach Road rides or attacking the dead, undulating roads around the Peninsula this bike can handle it all.
Andy was great to talk to and provides very good and honest advice as well as a comprehensive fit service. Nick takes time and pride in building up the bike. From perfectly tuning in a SRAM
groupset down to immaculate bar tape wrapping, all details are considered and executed.
Dealing with the guys was a pleasure.

CHAMPIONE CUSTOM STEEL ROAD FRAMES
BikePRO is offering an exciting new range of lightweight performance custom road frames with custom geometry, color & details. May It be Road, Track,
Cyclo Cross, Audax ,Touring or XC. Lug, TIG or fillet brazed
The frames are made from sourcing the best materials and built by a European builder with more than 30 year of frame building experience. We are proud to
present the Champione custom frame, with the options of Reynolds,
Columbus or KVA stainless tubing to suit your needs. The benefits of steel are undeniable, with high strength, smooth riding, and responsiveness in frames, not to mention the simple elegance of
a finely crafted steel bike!!! And now available; ultra lightweight steel frames, with steel being built up as light as full carbon or titanium frames. In fact, a sub 6kg steel built
is not out of the question at all. Due to the longevity of steel as a frame material, it is often referred to as a 'for life' investment, often turning into a sentimental heirloom.

After a bike trip to Europe in 2006 I started my mission to create the ultimate travelling bike. I enjoy the Gran Fondo rides and had visited Andy at Bikepro on several occasions
seeking his advice. He showed me his latest steed, a custom XCR with silver fillet brazing. He advised me that this form of welding was in his mind the ultimate, better than TIG as the tubes were not
subject to the same level of heat and more flexible than using lugs as these only came in certain angles. So began my quest!
It began with a Bikepro fit. Andy examined my position on my current bike, adjusted cleats, fore aft and height saddle position and cockpit configuration. He then gave me advice
on pedalling and backed this up with articles I could source on the internet. Measuring of power was a scary reality given my mediocre output compared to the figures of the elite riders.
Next step was to create a bikeCAD design. Andy made some initial recommendations then emailed his proposal. This was a very comprehensive document as attached. Being 170 cm tall
my concerns were toe overlap and the ability to fit two large bidons on the frame given the use I had intended for this bike. After a bit of toing and froing and with Andy’s help I settled on the
final design. This pleased both of us and it was great to have his guidance. He has a deep understanding of the various parameters which affect the handling of a bike and his input in the choice of
fork design, stem length and handlebar shape were invaluable. One thing I really appreciated was he listened to what my needs were and he actually recommended things which I had on my existing bike
rather than the latest and greatest.
After a 5 month period I received the email saying my frame had arrived. Nick did a wonderful job transferring my gear from my existing bike onto the new frame and it looks gorgeous.
Nick’s expertise in bike mechanics is not to be overlooked and I was amazed at the difference in the ride. At the final handover Andy once again checked my fit on my new bike, giving me further tips
on my pedalling action. The great thing about the XCR tubing is once cleaned a quick going over with steelwool restores it to its original lustre. I can highly recommend the experience I had
with all aspects of the purchase of my custom frame from Bikepro.
