The Ridgeline 29 Frame isn’t just another titanium hardtail, it’s an All Mountain hardtail that’s the most stable offroad frame that Lynskey has ever made! It offers the perfect blend of speed and comfort and a level of stiffness and precise handling that has never been seen before. It’s geometry and compatibility is also bang up to date too, as it features a longer top tube, a slacker headtube and “boost” hub spacing with clearance for up to 2.5’ wide tyres.
Efficient and Shock Absorbing:
The frame is built up using a 3AL-2.5V Cold-worked shaped tubeset with a tapered and diamond shaped top tube and a tapered and square shaped downtube. Designed to meet and exceed the needs and demands of the most discerning riders, the Ridgeline 29 delivers outstanding lateral stiffness for efficient power transfer yet still maintains the renowned damping qualities that titanium is famous for.

Lynskey Ridgeline 29 Frame 2018 Review:
The Battle Line 29’s development is a testament to how far we’ve come, and a testament to the Lynskey Brand itself. Built around a 3rd generation unibody fork, the battle line 29 builds on the success of the 29 Classic with a more efficient suspension with more effective weight transfer.
Featuring another large flat 48/52-mill-wide head angle that’s separate after the chainstays, external diameter rise, a tapered steerer and a longer reach, the line 29 adds a specific feeling and stability unnecessary in a 29er, but incredibly useful on a 29.
Geometry and Compatibility:
For the on-road trail purposes the Lynskey Kampf GX is also the perfect companion for the battle line 29. It’s similar in travel and geometry to the Lynskey Kampf 29, but many riders prefer the walkability of a 29 and the sturdier feeling the Kampf 29 provides when belted in.
The battle line 29 can be ridden lined up or spun if needed. This is due to the fact that it doesn’t have any extra legs or “spindocks” like other 29ers do when spinning; all of that happens when it’s lined up.
Mountain Bike Disc Brakes with Disc Mounts
If you want to go ridiculously serious on your mountain bike, there’s no better solution than the avid disc brake user.
The Lynskey Ridgeline 29 is no exception to this rule, with the Ceramic BB Sunbeam for a simple and effective way to stop your bike. It’s equipped with 4-piston calipers from Shimano’s wheels. Additionally, it’s supplied with a Shimano Deore AX-CD Brake Lever, which is equipped with a Shimano Deore AX-CD Brake Cable.

The battle line 29 is not designed for the race track or cross country, it’s not made for any type of regular use. The only thing that’s actually wrong with the battle line 29 is that it’s not supported in the US.
However, there are some serious US sets available, and if you have the means to obtain one, there’s no reason you shouldn’t buy the battle line 29.
Lynskey Ridgeline 29 Frame 2018 Review:
The premise of this generation of bikes is the same as the Lynskey Kampf F28, simply different stays.
The Lynskey Kampf is an all suspension hardtail 29er with a tapered steerer that can be used on the dirt as well as the road.
I’m a huge fan of the Lynskey Kampf 29 and for two primary reasons:
Falcon 5’s are so cool
It’s better to have quality products than tricks and gimmicks. The Lynskey Kampf 29 comes equipped with a set of high-quality products; an alloy headset, a swingarm and both a F/H and F/H/F brake. All those products fit together to form a high-end aggressive machine that’s sure to have serious teeth on the trail.
At this point, you might be wondering why I’ve written a full review of a bike from Lynskey.
After all, it’s a budget mountain bike that’s not on any professional bike magazine, and has a virtually straight outline and geometry and a frame form that’s very similar to Italian folders.
Several smart MTBers have already begun asking me on Facebook and such if I had used up all the stock available on the Lynskey website and they’re hoping for a review session in the future.
The Lynskey Ridgeline 29 is a trail bike that’s designed to be ridden in the backcountry. Period. One of the items we feel really sets the Lynskey Kampf 29 apart from the wider world of Trail bikes is that it’s actually designed to be ridden on terrible terrain in horrible conditions.
The Lynskey Kampf is composed of a frame that contains a frame form that was cut from an aluminum alloy tube with specialized reinforcement:
The Lynskey Kampf’s head angle is 41.8°
The Lynskey Kampf is a trail bike. It’s supposed to be rough mountain biking. With oversized tires, a loosened chain, and perhaps some trail debris in the fork. Nothing fancy, just something that’s not going to fall apart while you start your descent.
This is a very basic saddle design for a very basic style of riding. For those who like a blend of speed and sturdiness, it’s a great budget trail bike. For those who just want to go riding… fast, fast and fast.
The Lynskey Kampf 29 is not the tool for trail riding, but it is also not the tool for the dirt. It’s designed for riding in only the most minimal conditions. This is a key component.
