    I think these suppliers lose all credibility when they claim frames like this are made with T1000 CF. Also, the BSA bottom bracket indicates not a very sophisticated manufacturing process. The result is a heavy frame that probably isn't very aero.

    It would be faster if it had more red on it.

    Please correct me if wrong.... are most CF frames made from T800 or a mix of T800 and T1000 CF?

    Isn't T1000 a lighter but stronger CF than T800 making the frame a little lighter not heavier?

    And as for the BSA BB, this is compatible to my spare crank set. so I'm not worried about the sophistication of the frame more the functionality to the parts I already have.

    Geometry chart for your Pinarello clone matches the below from the same reseller who sold me a Canyon Ultimate clone frame-they were good to work with and packed the frame well, but I have no idea how they would handle a frame with poor QC or shipping damage.

    I suspect most of these frames are made with T700 carbon or similar. It would be a lot more expensive if it were made with T1000 and you'd expect it to be a lot lighter. Nothing wrong with a T700 level frame - I was just referring to the likely false claims about the CF, which would make me concerned about seller reliability

    Using the manufactures weight chart, plus or minus the frame ranges from just over 3lbs to 4.2lbs. What would you say to be average weight of similar frames?

    Depends on what you consider a comparable frame. I have my doubts about it being a T1000/T800 mix. 1kg = 2.2lbs. Most higher end racing frames that are a T800/T1000 mix seem to be in the .7-.9 kg range (manufacturer's claim. Some are slightly lighter. Even if you were to say 1.2-1.3kg for frame and fork, you are looking at 2.6-2.8 lbs for both.
