Reluctant sale: Lynskey R230 Titanium road bike, frame size M, 50cm. (geometry chart pictured) rider height: 65 to 70” / 5’ 5” to 5’ 10”.

This is a beautiful bike built to be durable, fast and stiff (not super light but certainly not heavy) and is an absolute pleasure to ride, needless to say very reluctant sale.
