"fast and explosive yet stable and at ease in the dirt"
Lynskey GR260 —Outside Magazine's Best Rated Gravel Bike
Looking for a bike that allows you the freedom to roam almost anywhere without adhering to the rules of traditional cycling categories? The GR 260 provides the maximum level of riding freedom and hand-built frame strength. With adventure oriented geometry, and loads of tire clearance, this model blurs all the lines, conquering any manner of rough roads, gravel and mixed surfaces. The GR 260 features a 1 ¾” biaxially ovallized downtube rounding out a butted, 3AL-2.5V aerospace grade titanium tubeset. Added to an adventure geometry that is designed for the rider to be in the cockpit rather than on the bike, and clearance for 700c x max 45 or 27.5 x max 2.1" tires, this model is capable of taking riders over any variety of terrain in all-day comfort.
Note: This model is designed based on a 700c x 42 or 27.5 x 2.1" wheel/tire combo, which theoretically maintain the same outside diameter. Actual measurements vary greatly from one manufacturer to another. Running larger or smaller tires will affect BB height and trail.
Lynskey has meticulously designed our 2018 GR 260 complete build packages to fully optimize ride performance in combination with industry best component groupsets — at a great price!
Lynskey now gives you the option of receiving your complete bike already assembled and test ridden by our tech specialists.

|Mavic Ksyrium Elite Allroad Disc Wheelset||
Mavic embraces the all-road trend with its Ksyrium Elite Allroad Disc Clincher Wheelset, building on the Ksyrium's legendary ride with a beefier 19mm internal rim width that better pairs with the wider tires needed to venture beyond the pavement. Trading out the more expensive Ksyrium Pro Allroad's Zicral spokes for ever so slightly heavier steel spokes, the Ksyrium Elite Allroad lands at more palatable pricepoint that'll have you packing your weekends with adventures onto roads less traveled.
|Stans Grail Team Disc Wheelset||
Go anywhere with versatile, durable disc brake Grail rims and wheelsets tested extensively by our cyclocross and pro road teams. Their 24.5mm wide design allows your tires to expand to their full volume for drastically reduced rolling resistance and provide more control. Bead Socket Technology means you get ideal tubeless performance and puts the Grail in a class of its own for adventure, gravel and road riding.
|Mavic Ksyrium Pro Allroad Disc||
The Ksyrium Pro Allroad Disc Clincher Wheelset is ready to embrace the off-road gravel trend. It was designed to replicate the responsiveness and dependability the line is known for with a gravel-friendly, 19mm internal rim width to firmly silence any talk of the brand refusing to innovate.
|Stans Avion Team Disc||
Offering decreased rolling resistance on paved roads, unbeatable comfort on gravel, and a weight barely over 1500g, the carbon tubeless Avion is the future of performance road wheelsets. The Avion's BST-R rim shape is designed for tubeless speciÂc road tires, traditional clincher tires when used with tubes, and wider gravel and cyclocross tires. The 28mm WideRight rim proÂle of the Avion increases tire volume and decreases pressure, for less rolling resistance, superior traction, and more comfort. Featuring our vibration damping Radial Impact Absorbing Carbon Technology (RiACT) and built around the reliability and quick engagement of our Neo and Neo Ultimate hubs, the Avion offers performance that doesn't stop when the pavement ends.
