Hi ,
I am a freshman in this field, and i am very happy to see so many nice things.
i wanted to ask you , if anybody has experience withe the Gr 260?
In any case , but especially with the decision of frame size.
Just asking because i am really new in this and just ordere a gr 260 and have to decide if M/L or L.
iam 5″11 and my inner leg height is 34. will use the bike mostly for bikepacking.
I hope some of you can help me with the decision and have maybe some other nice thoughts and experiences with the bike.
Hope i hear from anybody soon, happy to share my stuff as soon as possible as well.
greetings from vienna

I am 5" 11" with about a 32-32.5" inseam and all 3 of the Lynskey's I've owned have been M/L including my GR Pro that has the same geometry.  Haven't finished the build yet, but it's close enough to my previous R350.  Either would probably work for you.  I can not handle the standover of a Large frame but run a 100-110mm stem due to a longer torso.

HI, Thanks for this kind information. Sounds good and make sense, haven´t thought that much about the standover height with the L .
so i see you are a lynskey fan, are there any suggestions you can make about gearing , fork ore tyres?
Are you going to use 650B?
Thanks alot .
Hope to share some infos about my build up.
greetings
dom

Hi Dom,
I am going to do my first build this autumn on a GR260 size M (I am 5ft 9in). What I am planning to do is having both 650b and 700c wheelsets for gravel and road riding respectively. The 650b will have more knobby tires and the 700c will be probably GP4000s II. That is the beauty of this frame and others like it, to switch wheels depending on your riding surface and terrain.

I love my GR260. I'm 5'11 but 30 inseam and ride a Medium. The bike is great. Ive raced in standard gravel but also rode events on it where most others were on MTB. It handled it all.
