Hi out there -

Anyone have any experience with this frame: https://imgur.com/a/RNUQv

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Thru-Axle-Carbon-Fiber-Gravel-Frame-Road-Racing-Bicycle-Frameset-OEM-Bike-Frames/263153129194

Anyone who is familiar with this design should know what its "based" on. (3T Exploro)

It looks like they have simplified the seat post securing method that was a big gripe on the reviews of the original frame. Also the rear dropout has an option to convert it back and forth between QR and TA. It looks like the only thing different in the TA and QR versions are the front forks. Weight is a bit more than the original 1237g vs 1150g (+87g more) - but totally acceptable given the price.

Looks like a fun potential project - just wondering if anyone out there has tried this frame or any similar versions of it.

I believe this is based on the 3T exploro - NOT the Open U.P.
