Congrats. You will be happy I'm sure.
Hope the price has dropped since I think the price on the 69 is a bit pricy considering vat and custom prices.
Wouldn't you save a lot buying the wheels together with the frame?

i actually went with the 066 coz i think it looks loads better than the 069, cheaper too. I'm from the US as well so VAT is not an issue. they put the package value 5x below the actual to avoid excess customs/tax charges as well, much to my surprise.

i probably could have saved a few bones ordering the rims with the frame, but i simply didn't have the funds. i would've had to forego buying the 105 gearset and then id be stuck with a clapped out 9speed 5500 gear set ... no thanks.

they quoted me something like 250usd + shipping for the rims which isn't bad at all imo, the savings would have been minimal ordering it all together

I am interested to build up a FM-066,too.
Like totoboa I am interested to have a price info.
AFAIK there is no pricing on their website and you can only guess by checking their page on alibaba because there is an approx price related to pcs you buy.
Thanks in advance.
PM also accepted ;-)

Thanks for the PM.
If information received is true then HongFu has raised their frame prices for approx USD.200.- within two years.
This indeed is a lot.

^ mine was basically the same, 630 + 85 shipping + 4.5% paypal fees and another 15 for the headset. i think the normal weight model was 560 0r 580

$USD prices

as for the raise in prices ... supply and demand me thinks. their frames are still a phenomenal deal imo
