Single Speed Mountain Bike Monday - LYNSKEY PRO 29 SL

If you look closely you will see no derailleurs hanging from this beauty.  You see a beautifully crafted Titanium Single Speed Hard Tail ready to rock and roll on any trail you throw at it!  You may ask why would anyone want to ride a Single Speed?  Well there is minimal maintenance required and at the end of the day it truly makes you a stronger biker in this guys opinion.  How so?  When you hit a hill on a geared bike people typically gear down to make the climb easier.  On a Single Speed you have 2 options: #1 - people your butt off and make it to the top or #2 - get off and walk.  Enough jibber jabber on Single Speed talk - trust me if you haven't done it give it a shot you will love it!

Back to the Lynskey Pro 29 SL:

2014 Pro 29 SL

The ongoing evolution of our flagship 29er brings a whole new meaning to the word PRO. The all new 2014 Pro 29 adds to its already impressive list of race attributes a PF 30 BB for unmatched power transfer, tapered 42/52 headtube for stability and strength up front, and 12x142 thru axle slider dropouts or choose our standard single speed sliders. Sliders not only provide adjustment for tire clearance and chain tension during the use of geared setups, but also play a pivotal role in the overall performance by allowing you to fine tune the wheelbase. The overall result when combined with a 2 inch Helix'd downtube; speed, stiffness and stability in a durable lifetime purchase.

The 2014 Pro 29 SL enhancements include tapered and integrated head tube using the 42/52 headset for tapered 1.5 to 1 1/8" steerers, PF30 bb now allowing either BB30 cranks or with the threaded adapter, standard Shimano, and thru axle rear dropouts at 12x142. One other subtle change will be "under top tube" full length housing cable routing. No more under BB routed cables. Hardtail 29ers simply don't come any faster than a Pro29.
