    Anybody has FM028 frameset?

    Looking for feedback on the FM028 ISP frameset (this is NOT the TT frame) from Greatkeen. Trying to decide between it and the Fm015 from Hongfu.
    Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks!

    I have read all 27 pages and if you would read them, you will see that there are a few references to that frame but nobody has actually built one yet so that's why I'm asking in a separate thread.

    Just to carry on a post from v 4.0
    I am of the belief that Carbonzone on ebay is either Mina or Jenny as I had an email conversation about a frame that they (she!) said would not be a problem where as other sellers just gave the standard reply of 'not available'
    Then after looking at the Hong-Fu site the price of the item I was requesting had gone up in price.

    Mina works at Deng Fu not Hong Fu. I think Carbonzone buys from/sells for Deng Fu.

    A quick google seems to reveal that you are correct. Seems Carbonzone is/sells for Deng-Fu

    My order from Dengfu arrived today. Shipped from China on 2/17 and picked up in the USA 2/24. FM018 non-ISP, aero bars and brake set. I'll do a rough fit tonight. Pics in the near future. Like most, I worked with Mina and she was awesome.

    I have a question. I'm planning to buy a handlebar from China. Now I've had contact with Yishun. But I also had a look at aliexpress.

    Aliexpress: http://www.aliexpress.com/product-gs...olesalers.html

    Yishun: http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/31...handlebar.html

    I had show the link from aliexpress to yishun. So they see the price different. She said it was not the same quality. What do you think? If it so or is it a seller trick?

    If you dont mind me asking, where do you live? My FM028 shipped on 2/21, but tracking hasn't been updated since then. Hopefully it is well on it's way. I am wondering how long is normal to take to get to FL. I'll be out of town the week of the 7th so hopefully it comes before then!

    Have you been checking the USPS website? Supposedly, after it hits the US, the USPS takes over.

    Question regarding shipping from Hongfu: Did she (jenny) give you a tracking number or did you have to ask it? My stuff was supposed to ship in the past couple of days, but I haven't heard anything.

    Hi guys. I recently purchased the RFM101 from great keen. I ordered the 52cm frame and then realized they are measured differently to the standard way. Im 5ft8inch. Will the bike be really small for me? i dont mind having a smaller frame for a more aggressive position but i dont want to be riding something about as big as a BMX

    It seems like gotobike is no longer selling the Exocet frame. I can't find it on their site.

    I'd like to pick one up but I'd like to order through ebay preferrably or paypal, but it seems like nobody is listing them on their sites anymore.

    Can anyone post a link?

    I've also been thinking about the P3 wannabe from carbonzone. Anyone tried their aerobars?

    I've been looking at these for a while and now that Felt is trying to renege on my B16 warranty, I'm rather bitter.

    Just a quick update, some of you may remember I had what appeared to be a crack on the inside of the seat tube on my FM015 (from Deng Fu)

    I had some trouble emailing Mina with the pictures of the seat tube, but I believe they have gone through. Mina told me about a week ago that an engineer would review the pictures I sent and she would get back to me. I have not heard anything since despite a couple of a follow up emails...

    Yep just now checked USPS and it just updated, frame arrived in New York today. For whatever reason there were no "normal" shipping updates until it got to the US today.

    Mine is from Deng Fu and I asked for tracking. Does anyone know if these require signature on delivery?

    The EMS tracking website was helpful but didn't have a lot of updates. I could see the ship date of 2/17 and nothing until it arrived at JFK. Then more nothing on the EMS tracking website. I received a call from the post office the day before EMS updated with the data.
    I live in Minnesota so I surprised to see the package delivered within a week.

    You will need to sign for the package when you get to the post office. Open the package right away and have your invoice with you. Make sure all the items are in there before leaving the post office.

    Yes, they do at least in the US. Not sure about other coutries. If you trust it being left by your door, however, you can write a note to the USPS carrier with the tracking number and sign it authorizing them to leave it by your door. Leave the note in your mailbox in some way that is obvious. I went to pick up 1 frame at the Post office, was home for one delivery and left the note on a third.

    Yes, I did get a headset, and it seated without any issues, and feels pretty smooth. The bike is 40% assembled, I'm hoping it will be finished by tomorrow night.

    The brake mount is at the top of the seat stays, and can use a standard brake or the type that have the triangular mount (I've seen a few like this, but no clue what they are).

    I'd give the whole transaction a solid Awesome rating. I was talking to sales & technical support (had some q's about the cabling, pics, etc) at the same time via skype, and I had the original price sheet that they sent me. They were pretty awesome all in all, and I couldn't be happier. I did just find out today that I can't use it for collegiate racing since it will have aerobars on it, but since I bought it for ITT and Tris it's not a big deal.
    Thank you. I can't wait for the pictures.

    Is the cable routing internal?

    FM015 Design Feedback

    I've been communicating with Mina at DengFu for some time now and am about to place my order. They were very prompt to turn around a couple of designs based on a picture I sent them for a paintjob I wanted. I had some fun with a name and lettering and thought I'd throw them out here for some feedback.

    Which font do you think fits best?
