A very low budget build that was intended to ride like a weapon, and it sure does. I'm not scared of crashing it either which is a big plus!

Not many parts of note. Any questions, please ask!

Hi, how was the quality and finish of the frameset? How long did you have to wait. Cheers.

They are ano'd velocity aeroheads (quite old. 403g & 405g each).

The finish was acceptable. There was no resin spill onto threads, the BB shell is nicely aligned and ready to use out of the box, the rear brake boss has a bit of clearcoat which means the brake nut is a tight fit and similarly the lower headset bearing suffers the same issue.

The clearcoat could be more uniform, but it's not noticable and this isn't a great looking frame either way.

I waited one working week. They [hongfu] were quick with communication and all around pleasant to deal with.

It rides nicely. It's no miracle, but it fits me well and performs as well as I could hope for at this price point (if not better).

Nice build, Bobby! It looks like it will be fun to ride and thrash about.
