Lynskey to intro bikes with belt drives, first steel bike

First ever titanium belt drive bicycle?

Lynskey Performance Designs of Chattanooga, TN will introduce what they believe to be the first ever belt driven titanium bicycles at the 2008 North American Handmade Bicycle Show in Portland this weekend. Here are some preview photos of the 12 pound singlespeed road bike and the 17.5 singlespeed mountain bike.

Lynskey's first STEEL bike

Lynskey will also introduce this candy green with shamrocks beauty: their first ever STEEL bicycle. This 17.5 lb bike is fabricated from True Temper steel. The top and down tubes have been specially shaped to enhance some performance attributes, and Lynskey’s builders butte the heck out of the tubes to lighten them up.
