Hi to all Forum members,

I'm fairly new here

After reading a lot about Chinese carbon I decided to step in this adventure myself ;)
Since last week the bike was ready for use, and after 400km on the counter I could not be happier with my new companion.

The used equipment is quite simple compared to the beauty's on this forum:
- Ultegra 6700
- WH-6700 wheelset / Continental Grand Prix 4000 foldable (carbon wheels are ordered)
- 3T assembly (Doric LTD Seatpost, Stem ARX Pro, Steer Ergosum Pro)
- Prologo Scratch Pro saddle
- Elite Custom Race holders
- Look Keo Classic pedals
- Garmin Edge 800 so I don't loose the north ;)

All this brings the weight to 7792 grams (unfortunately not so light)

It is quit comfortable, not to stiff but also stiff enough.

Because of the high head tube I could sit even more comfortable without the need of using lots of spacers.

For a recreational rider like me, really the perfect bike!

Nice, looks like a really sensible and straightforward build.

Any comments on the frame? Where did you get it? Thought it might be a Pedalforce, but none of those have the wishbone seatstay.
