In the house: Lynskey Cooper CX disc

By Adam Newman

Lynskey might be getting a lot of press right now for bikes they are building for other brands—see our Kona post from yesterday—but they build plenty with its own name on the side too.

Though they can build you a mild-to-wild, full-custom titanium bike, the Cooper line of road, cross and mountain frames feature stock geometry and limited options with all the same made-in-Tennsessee craftsmanship they’re known for.

The Cooper CX was ahead of the curve with its disc brake mounts and 135mm rear spacing, offering supreme braking control and countless options for wheel builds. Want cantilevers? Too bad. You’ll be looking at a custom build. There are rack and fender mounts too, for ultimate versatility.

But for me, I’m never going back to cantis now that I’ve sipped the sweet nectar of the rotors. I’m planning on putting some serious miles on this guy this spring, from road rides to gravel races and some ‘cross races, if I can find some. 

Keep your eyes peeled for a first impression post in a few months and a full review in the pages of Dirt Rag this fall.

Made in Tenessee. Built to go FAST.
