What's up weenies. Here's my edition of the FM028-ISP. This has been a fun build for me and I love the bike unfortunately I've concluded that I bought one size too small and will need to get a larger frame. I'll be posting an ad for it once the post count goes up.

No weight yet will update later.
Frame/fork: 58cm Dengfu FM028-ISP in Matte 3K finish
Wheels: Yishun YSNP-50mm tubs
Sram Rival/Red mix
Tune Cappy ISP topper
Selle Italia SLR Kit Carbonio

Great bike, I think that this is one of the nicest direct bikes I have seen in a while.

How does it ride? I have been looking at this one for a bit.

Thanks - I'm loving the ride. I was worried it would be a bit of a noodle but not so. It's just too bad I ordered one size to small.

I was thinking the same thing. If you got a 58cm what size top tube is it?

Nice stealthy ride!!! :thumbup:

It really does look like a Madone. It actually has exactly long top tube as the Madone ;)

Love those budget bikes!

Best looking 'Direct' bike I've seen.

This gives us hope that one day we'll see a stealth EVO Six come out of one of these factories. No paint...the way it should be 8)

Very subtle differences. Maybe they were pre production test molds by Trek?

I meant the whole bike! ;)

The frame looks very, very similar! Just the head tube is maybe litlle taller.
BTW, how much does it cost, frame+fork? And how long do you have to wait for it?

I am increasingly intrigued by some of the "new" direct factory bikes out of China...

Please tell us more about weight and ride feel, thanks!
