    It takes a 34.9 mm clamp, 31.6 mm seatpost and 34.9 mm front derailleur. I am just finishing up my FM015 build!

    I ordered a 31.6mm seat post clamp but it's too small

    Does anyone know the correct size ?

    looking at thebenders post... the seatpost itself should be 31.6mm, the seatpost CLAMP should be 34.9mm and likewise the clamp on d/r also 34.9mm

    a wise investment would be a set of digital vernier calipers, about a tenner from ebay :)

    That and a short refresher course in "reading comprehension." All the info the OP needed was in the first reply to his post....."It takes a 34.9 mm clamp, 31.6 mm seatpost ......" but the OP ordered a 31.6mm seatpost clamp and wonders why it it too small?

    FM-28 and BB30
    Lurker, finally taking the plunge and getting an FM-28 non-isp for the wifey.

    Shot an e-mail to Jenny to get the latest prices, etc.

    A couple quick questions,

    What kind of BB30 do I need to purchase, BB30 or Pressfit30??, will be going SRAM Force

    How do they measure their handlebars?, C-C, E-E?,

    My wife's current bike has an eff top tube of 533mm, so I am thinking a 51 or 53cm??

    Happy with their 50mm carbon clinchers?

    Thanks in advance

    e_baygoods (did we decide that was Dengfu?) has a frame/fork/seatpost/handlebar/cages/saddle setup for $580 US. That's pretty close to what I paid for my FM015 from Hongfu, except I had mine painted and didn't get a saddle.

    It looks like a good deal, if they're in good shape, but they appear to only sell a size 52. Bummersauce. Give me a call when they're selling 56s!

    edit: Looks like a slightly different Pedalforce CG2

    Is shipping cost included in their frame price? I tried to find out but to no avail.

    Hi all My Miracle MC0008 has arrived today. The box was a bit ragged but the frame was in perfect condition. Wheels sit central in the front forks and rear dropouts so I am pleased with that. It came with a neco headset which I have fitted. The crown race went on the fork quite tightly but is fitted right on the base of the steerer. The bottom bearing pushed in easily with a press and the fork fits in the frame with a gap of about 1mm. The top bearing is a press fit with fingers into the top race. When the headset cover is on no shims are needed and there is barely any gap at all . Looks good to me but I'm wondering if Serve or Rob C have any comments about the fit in their frames?
    I am waiting for the Dura Ace groupset to arrive so I can start building it up.

    I had better get my post count up so I can post some pictures.
    Cheers from

    If you buy on ebay the shipping is around $80. Bought the FR02 frame with seat post, saddle, stem, handlebar and 2x bottle cages for $620 shipped to South Africa.

    Still building, will post pics ASAP

    BTW communication with FLYXII was pretty good, usually got back via email within 48 hours. They sometimes used [email protected]

    for anyone with a FM015..

    I have a Specialized Allez in 52cm.
    If I want to match (as close as possible) the geo of my allez to the FM015, which 51cm or 53cm FM015 is going to be closer?

    It looks like the 53cm is closer in size to me, but maybe someone can chime in that has one.. Looking to pull the trigger soon.

    On ebay, the vast majority of the carbon frames, bottle holders, etc is from them. They sell under several different companies. A frame plus fork will run less than $400 shipped. Look at the stuff under carbon zone, a company with an asian name and a third one. Prices vary slightly between the companies but it is all the same stuff. They have tons of frames of different geometries and shapes.
