I don't think I can get an oem groupset/wheelset cheap enough if I go with Chinese carbon.
Plus I don't want to have to explain everytime someone asks who makes my bike

In fact people rarely ask me which brand is my Chinese frankenstein but because it looks good people keep looking at it from all possible angles with faces like "where the heck is this bike from?" That's funny enough

I use my speedercycling to commute to work in London a couple of times a week - more often that not I get compliments on the bike, build and paint job. That said, answering the 'where did I get' question it is quite complicated when you don't have much time!!!

My crank is 170 but I agree 270mm is too low for trail but not an issue for commute.


Great lightweight build, and props for using 26" knobbies.

Makes me wonder if you could cram small volume 650B/27.5" XC tires into that F-602 frame & fork, to make it a 650B "monster crosser".

If so, your BB height would increase 12mm from ~270mm to ~282 mm (possibly higher, based on tire volume), since the 650B/27.5" wheel has a 584mm rim diameter, compared to 26" wheel with 559mm rim diameter.
