    Experience with Costelo carbon frames.

    Wondering if anyone here has had any experience with Costelo road frames, specifically the Costelo Speedcoupe aero frame like the one linked below. I have a bunch of spare parts laying around, and would like to build up a cheap aero bike. Are they chinese carbon junk, or halfway decent? Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks!

    Did you look for a website? If they don't have a website with all kinds of pertinent information, I'd have to take a wild guess and say that they are not a legit frame builder.
    That, and the pictures scream cheap unknown quality frame out of china. And I thought Costelo was spelt Costello.

    My personal opinion is, you can't go wrong shopping at Costco.
    YMMV.

    There is a huge thread about Chinese frames at weight weenies that is worth checking out. They might mention Costelo.

    Are those from Elvis Costello, or Abbott and Costello?
