Any recommendation where I can pick up a rear derailleur hanger in the US for the FM066. Getting one shipped form China costs $35 for the shipping, at least that's what I was told by HongFu!

It's better that you get one from another mfg anyway (such as 9to5 engineering, Pilo, Wheels MFG, etc:.
Check this thread:
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=121461

What shape do you need? Take a look at your current derailleur hanger and find a matching one. That simple.

Also, you will find your shifting improve by using any one of the above derailleur hangers: they are CNC machined to be thicker and stronger.

That paint spec actually looks pretty good, apart from the text graphic.

No.
Check the Hongfu website.
They neither manufacture replicas nor branded fake items.

my frame has arrived! haven't had a chance to crack into the box yet as i had it shipped to another location but it only took 8 days to arrive from china to the US east coast - sometimes it takes longer than that for things I've ordered from inside the US to arrive! I've been very pleased with their customer service. I've corresponded through Vivian and i would recommend contacting her if you chose to order through HongFu

ill be throwing up a build thread in the next few days

Sorry to interrupt this thread.

Is it safe to buy from the website above ? (http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product ... 74744.html)

And how is this saddle compared to a standard SLR?

Aliexpress is like ebay. Any number of different sellers. Some are good, some not so. Most of the bars, saddles etc are sold by resellers not manufacturers although manufacturers also list.
As to how does it compare, do you mean quality wise? Many folks use them without complaint, some folks break them, like any carbon part. A broken saddle can make it hard to get home if it occurs more than a couple k from home, but if you're a light guy, what do you have to lose for 40 bucks?
