Lynskey Sportive Disc II

Another Lynkey Sportive frame but this one has a very different drive train. The customer wanted to have a very wide range of gears but with Shimano moving away from triples we’ve paired a mountain bike rear mech (XT SGS) and cassette (11-40t) with Ultegra shifters, a Jtek ShiftMate 8 takes care of the mismatch in the cable pull ratio’s.

The combination of the Praxis Alba M30 chainset (48-32t) and the 11speed cassette (11-40t) gives a useable range of 21.35 to 116.38 gear-inches which compares well with the old school triple set-ups. Being only a double chainset the shifting at both ends is crisp even under load.
