Does anyone have experience with this frame? It looks good, and the specs look very good as well. 760 grams claimed weight size 52.

I can't figure out if it's a knockoff or not.

Would an FM-069 by any other name still smell as sweet? Pretty sure that's what it is, anyway.

I'm pretty confident, that it's not a 069. Headtube and toptube doesn't look like it at all. The weight isn't the same at all either. But thanks for the reply.

Doesn't look like the 069. It's also a claimed 150g lighter. Still interesting though.

Their description lists it as a V Brake frame, which it is clearly not. :oops:

It's not an 069 or 066. The pics show the ugly painted frame, a 56cm, on a scale indicating 929g. The painted fork 379g.
Maybe it's a really thick paint job or the 760g claimed weight is without paint.

True. That is curious. The claimed weight is probably wrong like every other chinese product claimed weight.

I doubt it is a 'knockoff' but once you figure it out, if you intend to purchase, I suggest you find somewhere other than Velobuild.

Not in my experience. I've bought two road frames, two cyclocross frames and five sets of wheels from Chinese vendors, the majority of which came in at the claimed weight or even below.

Hi everyone
After spending countless hours and reading even more posts in this very interesting and helpful forum, I am writing my first post now.
My interest in unbranded frames from china brought me to this topic. After doing some research I am pretty sure, that the frame in question is the same model as the LT Bike LTK 118.
I am looking forward to getting more information/experiences about that frameset.
Cheers.

Yes. Just remove the spaces and change the zero to 'o' in 'org'.
Looks great by the way, Ultegra matches the frame well in my opinion.
