whats up this is my first post.

55cm isp carbon frameset from china, put my own decals on it.
stock seatmast doesnt look(even work) good so I did some modifications on there.
It has some trendy framebuliding techs like fat bb shell, downtube and chainstay, and thin seatstay, tapered headtube, isp...

based on sram force, I sanded shifters for more stealth look.
KCNC CB-1, Recon AL cassette, KMC X10SL gold
FSA SL-K ISIS + token carbon-ti BB + stronglight CT2

wheels are assembled with KULT K390 40mm carbon tubular rims and generic front hub, DT240 rear.
tufo s33pros are glued with.

pedals were M2racer ORB but it sucked I changed to Keo carbon.

Deda newton shallow + zero100 servizio corse 120mm

I'm still looking for the saddle. aspide->arrione->generic carbon->concor->filante->???

weight was 6.4kgs but now 6.8kgs, I'm on the way of taking off WW things from my bike. brakes and cassette are left now.

I think it is just the crank bolts that make the red look too much. They are too concentrated in a single area, where the other details are scattered. I do like the red accents.

Who makes the frame or any info on the frame?

You called it Black on Black but there is red??????

I like the overall build and attention to detail with the exception of the red but that is just my taste.

Did you sand the levers on the brakes or did you take them off and do them.

I like what you have done with that budget build.
Black decals on a black frame :D

Can you do a ride report on the frame? How does it compare to other carbon rides...
