Does anyone know the headtube angle of the FM-066/FM-069? Some angles of these frames are nowhere to be found..

trychie, as i mention below you can find the spec for the hong fu frames at uamcycling dot com (a6d01=069, f6.0 sl=066), or you can email them and they'll get back to you within 12hours

Just about to order a AC066 from ICAN bikes. It's listed as same weight as the Fm066sl but just want to confirm it's the exact same frame? Are these all from the same factory (Fly bikes) and then supplied to Hong Fu, ICAN, Deng Fu etc? Reason is my local bike shop buying in bulk so can get a good price from Ican.

Also I had a Cervelo S2 which I sold to get one of these because of the very poor warranty issues. Never get another branded bike!

From what I gather these frames are made to the exact same standard as big branded frames (made in same factory) so why buy big? The few warranty issues I've heard about with these frames have been sorted with new frames no questions asked. I had months of issues with warranty and sending my fame away twice and when it was returned had paint chips and missing parts!!
These bikes are bare and beautiful. I will use it for my everyday summer bike and race bike. If I destroy it in a crash I can replace it.

Just don't know whether to get the 066 or the new 069. Think the 069 has t1000 carbon but this isn't better just stiffer. Any suggestions?


the hongfu 066sl is made of t1000 aswell, the normal weight model is t800.

the ac066 geo is not the same as the fm066, you can compare the spec from charts at uamcycling dot com

i just built up an o66sl and its lovely so far (only 1 ride in)

Yes indeed, we lack some real riding feedback on the fm069.
I own a fm066 which I have/ still is extremely glad about. Only issue is the lack of help to the inner cable routing.

On the Ican website it states the weight for the Ac066 is 850g + is that not the Fm066sl weight range? If it's different I will go to Hong Fu, just like dealing with my LBS.

What sort of info do you want? I rode a century yesterday on it.

Does anyone knows what a FM069 in size 58 weighs fork and frame?
And... I can't see any max rider weight on the super light model. Right?

got my 066sl all built up. still needs a bit of fiddling but its nice to have it rolling

shimergo 10sp, 105 danglers, centaur brifters.

you'll have to excuse the shitbox winter wheels, $50 compact & the non-weight-weenie-ness of it. I'm proper skint so I'm waiting to find a deal on a wheelset, 120mm stem, and ultegra crank.

very happy with the frame though, only had a few rides on it so far but I'm amazed, never ridden "modern" carbon road bike before, last ride was a 22year old trek 2100 composite so this is a big step up.

Surely they could have used a different model number than FM-069. There's a common TT frame with the same model number for a couple of years. Talk about confusion.

One more question.. Does anyone have the stack and reach numbers of the FM066 SL?

Hongfu is not responding to my emails due to vacation-season :(

I'm thinking acceleration while sitting and standing, comfort over bumps, how it handles road buzz. Also hills

@trychle The stack and reach numbers are identical to the Cannondale SuperSix Evo
