Deciding on a new R360 with Red22 may be the best cycling decision you've ever made in your racing career. When Sram re-introduced SRAM RED in 2012 there was simply nothing more needed to make it better. SRAM RED was all new, redesigned throughout, with innovations they spent the previous year touting and their athletes proving. It was/is loaded with features and benefits that matched the needs of professionals: fast, light, aerodynamic, ergonomic, near-silent, and, of course, trim-less, with ground breaking Yaw™ technology. Adding two more gears to that combination was arguably the only improvement required. The added benefit is that now, without adding weight, Red maintains a system that shifts incredibly fast upfront, and with the best and smoothest gear transitions in back. And, for the first time available anywhere, the system gives you twenty-two gears. No compromise and no trim, what they call True 22, in any gear combination.

Together with the “roll over anything” 29er wheel configuration, this setup is dialed for XC, sweeping singletrack, twisty descents and much more…
"I just wanted to drop you a note regarding my new Pro 29 FS-120. I started riding 29” bikes as soon as the early Gary Fisher models came out. Since those days, I have ridden a LOT of 29ers, from hardtail, through softtail and into the latest-greatest full suspension models. I ordered a frame through Lifesport a while back and it arrived within a week. As usual for a Lynskey frame, the build-up was quick and easy due to your attention to detail on machining and finish. No threads to chase, perfect seat post fit, I was ready to ride within an hour. Your collaboration with David Earle resulted in an unbelievable bike. I have a 29er hard tail that Steve Potts custom built for me last year and it is hard-tail perfection. The FS-120 hits the same target in the full suspension category. I lose almost no energy on climbs but everything feels right on the descents. Handling in tight, technical single track is predictable and sharp. This bike handles any terrain that I throw at it. Thank you for your efforts! Chris, Calgary
Lynskey Full Suspension Technology
Lynskey’s simple, stiff, effective and very low maintenance single pivot rear suspension system satisfies both sides of a mountain biker’s brain. It gratifies the "order" craving left brain as it nimbly carves up singletrack with steady, precise handling, while simultaneously thrilling the creative, thrill-seeking right brain as it gobbles up bumps and brings a smile to your face.
How it does all that...
The Lynskey FS bikes employ a single pivot with a linkage drive shock that’s engineered to deliver the best of both worlds – hardtail-like power to the pedals and crisp steering response AND the ability to absorb all types of terrain keeping rubber down, rider in control and the fun meter up to 11.
Pivot location is key to most of this performance and the Lynskey pivot location has been optimized for each platform to virtually eliminate chainstay lengthening, bobbing and anti-squat while maintaining control and suspension balance under heavy braking.
Thinking beyond where the pivot and linkage are placed to how those two elements work on the trail, the Lynskey design utilizes the largest, most durable swingarm pivot bearings in the industry. Linkage bearings are simple and durable and both swingarm bearings and linkage bearings are readily available parts that are reasonably priced and easy to swap out.
