The Lynskey GR300 frameset forms the foundation of their GR300 titanium gravel bike. I opted for the internal cable routed version, but much of what will be discussed in this video is also relevant for the external version. This is a pretty long video, and a significant portion is specific to building the frameset, so I’ve provided an index below with some time codes to break up into more manageable topical chunks.
Lynskey Seatpost Clamp – 5Nm
Lynskey Ti Seatpost Enve Insert – 15Nm (The 12Nm marking is for carbon seatposts
Thanks. I saw that in the FAQ after it slipped; 15-17Nm is a lot, and the 7×9 clamp only has 8Nm on it. I worry that it might over-compress the carbon rails on my saddle. Planning to try assembly paste before going past 12Nm.
Thinking of buying one of these, so this was helpful. I’m curious what size your frame is. I am 182 cm tall, with long legs-short torso, so I’m stuck choosing between the ml and l sizes. Can you comment on saddle to bar drop that you have and how many spacers you can run with this fork? Thanks!
I have a size large, and I’m 187cm (also long-legged). Currently running a 10mm spacer, as it was a frameset, and I cut the fork myself, I can’t say what it would come with from Lynskey.
When it comes to comparing different bike geometries, I really like this tool:
It’s the best I’ve found to really visualize the differences.
I have a GR300 on order due at the end of the month, and was wondering what length of caliper fixing bolts you ended up using for the rear caliper. I already ended up ordering different thru-axles based on your concerns. Thanks for the overview of the frame.
Reasonably confident the rear chainstay caliper mount is 15mm, and I had to replace the bolts. Lynskey should be able to confirm that number so you can order the right length if they aren’t included in your build kit.
