I bought this one from DHgate from bike777/greatkeenbike.

I am only 66 kg, so imagine what somebody heavier would cause when riding on the frame.
Have had contact with them and they say the frame is perfectly normal, so you guys are warned, I will take my loss and find a new frame/bike

Send me the frame, I'll make sure it gets destroyed properly.

From the video I can tell your cranks are also weak as hell, are they also from Asia???

Yes, the cranks are from Asia. From Japan to be specific. 105 5800 53-39 cranks, so nothing wrong with the cranks

All bike frames flex, however this looks excessive. Did you get to ride it at all?

I always get SOME flex when stumping on the none drive side. Some frame flex more than others, but they all flex to some degree.

We are judging the stiffness of this frame base on a cell phone video, held by human hand, filming a bike NOT in a fixture, but also held by human hand. Not the most scientific judge of quality.

Although it does appear the frame flex a bit more than usual through my calibrated eye balls. :P

Is the wheel dished properly? Are those 25mm tires? If so, change to 23s or modify build to make it work. You took the risk so you get a wet noodle to ride. Try to enjoy it for what it is.

Spin, winter or rain bike would be great and get some nice flexy wheel to compliment it to flex with the chain stays.

I agree. It could be the wheels. The cranks are definitely more flexible than any Campagnolo crank I've ever had.

Put the bike on a trainer and see if the wheel touches the frame.
