    [QUOTE=Teo;4873082]This is my second Chinese frame. I rode my first one for 3 years, about 4,700 miles with no problems. Went with the same vendor, Greatkeen, for this frame. Have several hundred miles on in so far and no issue. Build quality is great. Paint finish even better than my last one. Overall very happy. They did get the paint color completely wrong, I wanted a darker green and red. Got lime green and orange, but in the end I think this one actually looks better than what I wanted.

    I like those colors. Almost went with that color scheme on one of my bikes.It looks great. Any idea on the weight?

    No sure of weight, since my scale is not working. My old bike was 16.5 with speeplays. This one is a bit lighter with same pedals.

    I have been looking at new frames, but haven't found anything much lighter than what I already have. My build came in at 16 lbs. even. Of course mine now has over 20,000 miles on it, so it is time for something new.

    With saddle and handlebar at almost same level? I would think the opposite.

    The joys of having DDD (degenerative disk disease) in L4/L5, means i have to watch my position carefully and make only small changes. I haven't set saddle/bars up yet, just a starting point. I think the stem may come down fractionally

    level the top of the seat, not the rails. The part you sit on should be perfectly level.
    use a torque wrench

    Hi everyone, i am new to this forum but i have read hundreds of pages of the China Carbon thread.
    I am intrested in a FM066 frame. As i have read and informed myself, the frame seems a bit like the cannondale supersix evo.
    At the moment i ride a Cannondale Caad 10 size 54cm.
    My inseam is 81.5cm (31.1 inch) and my height is 176.5 cm (5.8").
    Competitive cyclist gives me a 53.6 to 54cm top tube length.(competitive fit)
    The 54cm Caad frame therefore is a bit to big. I feel comfy on it but i hat to put a 70mm stem on it.
    Now the question is which frame should i take? The 52cm or 54cm ?

    Also i love the design of the FM098 frame. Same problem, which size?

    May be someone has the same measurements and give me some advice.
    Next week i will be able to ride a supersix evo size 54cm. May be this will help a little...

    Thanks a lot !

    After 4 trusty years, I've snapped the rear hanger on my FM-015, can anyone direct me to where I can buy a new one? Dengfu are being difficult to get in touch with.

    hangers possibly may have a number on the back of it. that is the code that you can follow to get a new one. i don't think the chinese frame manufacturer will come up with a new mech hanger design.

    FM018 internal routing breakdown

    The housing for the front derailleur cable has rubbed against a sharp edge in the frame. It now looks like this:

    Can something be done here? I fear that I have to replace the entire frame...

    HI,

    I am looking to get my first ever road bike. I would like build it it disk breaks. This is simply so that I can use carbon wheels all year and not worry about the British weather effecting the rim breaking capability.

    Can anyone recommend a carbon frame with disk break mounts? I have been trying to contact Dengfu for a few days with no reply as of yet. I would love to have a Venge-esque like frame if possible with disk mounts but have spotted nothing so far!

    Thanks

    I'm working on a new build with a Flyxii FR602 cross frame built with Ultegra 6870 Di2 RS785 Hydraulic Disc Group.
    Frame was purchased on ebay from zgr9. Communication was "ok". They didn't have the BB I ordered so it took several days to work that out. The 12hr time difference and 1 question/answer per day took a little patience. But it all got straightened out and they were helpful. Shipping was incredibly fast. Package was accepted in China on Tues. I received it that Friday! Four days!

    I was skeptical on the frame given mixed reviews. But this is going to be a gravel/winter/beater project bike so I wasn't all that concerned. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality. It arrived well packaged. The frame appears well built and I couldn't find a flaw. With the exception of the brake boss that had some epoxy build up on it. A little sandpaper fixed that. Most impressing is the inside of the frame. I've read horror stories of terrible interiors. But this is flawless inside. It's almost as smooth as the exterior. I tried to get some pic's but the camera wouldn't focus well on the inside.
    The listed weights were pretty accurate as well. They were listed as Frame : 900+/-50g ( 51cm) , Fork: 420+/-20g. My frame came in at 1025g for a 55cm. So 125g over, for two sizes larger. Not bad. The fork was a little under. I think 410g. I have it written down at home.

    The build is almost complete, just have to wrap the bars. Final weight should be under 17.5lbs.
