Lynskey Single Speed Build

Its been a long time coming. I’m now making a shift over to the single speed platform for my lap based racing, endurance of course. As a reward for exceeding my goal at the Tour Divide, I chose a Lynskey Titanium single speed frame (Ridgeline- 26inch). There are several great bike builders out there, but Lynskey has a great rep and I have seen them do well on long courses such as the Tour Divide. I feel like that is an ultimate test for a bike. I chose my parts for the build with durability, performance and flare in mind. Below, I have listed the parts I used to build my single speed dream crusher. I will be racing this bike for the first time and it will also be my first time to race a single speed bike of any kind next weekend at the 18 Hours of Scouts Honor in Goochland, VA. I figure 18 hours will break me in to the single speed world of pain. Cheers!
