Here's my build out on a new Lynskey frameset. Components from my old gravel bike and some upgrades: Rival cranks and rear mech, red front mech, force shifters, new TRP spyre mechanical brakes, Roam wheels. Coming upgrades are force cranks and some carbon rims on I9 hubs, red of course! Tires are Maxxis ravager on front, rambler on rear, both 40's.

Weighs in at 22lbs in a ML size now. Shooting for mid 20s with new cranks and wheels.

Nice!
I've been looking at the GR 260 and Pro.  What do you think?

I was going to buy the 260 but they didn't have my size available when I needed it. They offered the pro at a great price so I took it. I don't think you can go wrong with either of them.

Is it possible to put 27.5 x 2.2 tires on this bike? although it max recommendation is 2.1. How about ordering from Lynskey website, I heard their customer service is horrible. any thought on this?

Don't know about the tire size. The customer service has been outstanding for me.
