Workswell WCB-R-095 arrived! More images are here: http://imgur.com/a/UWhtL

I feel the frame and the fork are noticeably more noodle than Giant TCR Adv 2009 (not riding feel, just I grabbed the front / rear end). TCR Adv is much lighter than WCB-R-095.

That's hawt! Nice work. Give us the details!

The 100×15 front Thru Axle is not the same as MTB, it's shorter. I bought a second hand RockShox Maxle Stealth Front Axle,then modified it and replaced the stock axle. It's much lighter! I am going to make an rear axle too. You can find more pictures at here:http://s131.photobucket.com/user/megatronhe/library/Gravel%20Bike?sort=3&page=1. I will keep on updating, thanks for wacthing.

What did you do to the maxle? Just thread it further up the axle so lengths match?

If that frame is like my Hongfu FM-079-F with 15mm front thru axle there is a Rock Shox Maxle Stealth made to fit (M15x1.5mm thread x 125mm long). Cost $35 or so.

This is the difference between two axles. I cut the Maxle to be the same lenth as the stock axle, then rethread it.

Here is a great video of some guy reporting about the process and unboxing some Dengfu frame I thought is worth sharing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XVrczXtTtrA

Will be interesting to see how this frame works once your build is ready. Stiffness, weight and comfort are interesting evaluation points.

I communicate with Workswell through Email, they send me a website with lots of color sample,I pick up which I want. If you want some logo on your bike,you need to send the digital logo to them.
