Had to share this... Saw this on China's equivalent of Twitter about someone's new bike assembled from pieces purchased online. Fake Giant frame, fake Mavic wheels, fake Scott bar, fake FSA seatpost, fake bottle cage, fake MAXXIS tires, any many more. Apparently you can build a fake bike with hardly any real parts.

BTW, seat collar cracked during installation thanks to the 1mm gap between post and frame as both are way out of spec.

车中奇葩!今天遇到一位顾客在网络上淘的一堆宝贝,车架在安装过程中坐杆夹头位置就开裂了,来我们店问维修问题,仔细看来,这车的零部件全是假货••GIANT的炭车架,MAVIC轮组,包括把横,水壶架•••还有MAXXIS轮胎都是假的••这车你还敢骑吗亲?@捷安特官方 GIANT要打假咯!

Cracked, out of spec? But how can that be since surely these must be made in the same OEM factories as the name brands?!? LOL

Re Fakes... I bet you didn't know Cervelo made MTBs. The fakers here are WAY ahead of Vroomen's OPEN project. Man, he could have saved himself a pile of R&D cash :lol:

Now I'm beginning to wonder about the Pinarello kids MTBs I've been seeing. Maybe they're fake too! :hmm:

How do people in China regard the use or purchasing of fake items vs. the real items?

It's not very favorably regarded, although there is no arguing with 80%-95% savings (imported (well, exported and then re-imported) name brands are subject to very high taxes).

Somehow westerners seem a bit more tolerant of fakes, I suspect not because of different moral standards, but because folks in China know all too well there is no free lunch, and have been screwed by crappy products too many times; plus authentic name brand products are overly glorified, by propaganda and their prohibitive price tags.
