Lynskey Sportive Disc Bike


Moonglu Custom Lynskey Sportive Disc Titanium Road Bike

Custom built titanium road disc bike, based on a Lynskey Sportive Disc. Join the road disc revolution and enjoy the additional comfort of wider tyres, more clearance and full mudguard compatibility.

The Lynskey Sportive was designed specifically for the UK to cater for medium to long endurance road riding such as Audax and Sportives where both positive handling and comfort are desired. With full mudguard capability this bike is perfect for all weather riding with the added benefit of disc brakes.

Moonglu have been selling Lynskey titanium frames since they appeared in the UK in 2008. Titanium has always held a fascination to cyclists as the wonder material that outlasts all the other bike frame materials and has combined material properties that makes it ideal for bike frames.

Moonglu have lots of examples of custom Sportive bikes that are all still going strong, some of them after 5 years and many thousands of miles of use. Most have been purchased as a fast winter bike but become the ride of choice throughout the year.
