I ordered the frame direect from Hongfu bikes. It was around $700 for frame , fork, headset, seat post (a different one that matched the frame) , and water bottle cage. Shipping was very quick, I got it within a week and a half of payment. Quality of the frame is very nice. I get lots of complements on it, people ask what its made of, and who makes it. It rides quite nice as well.

Such a nice bike..I have the planet X and they are single pivot, but they seem to stay in position without moving.

The planet x site says their brakes are dual pivot.

The Planet X brakes are single pivot. Both arms pivot from the same location. However, they use a cam mechanism to increase power with cable pull. I'm assuming they count that as the 2nd pivot. By the way, I highly recommend the Planet X brakes. Mine weighed 203 grams with pads.
