I bought a set of the "no-name" cyclocross frame (include fork) The frame arrived safetly ,I am satisfied with the fast shipping.

I had combine parts for touring cycle.
(Sram red lever, Sram Xo derailleurs,FSA K-force crank,Cane creek thudbuster ST seatpost,AVID BB7 ROAD disk brakes.)
I have traveled accumulate 1000 km. It's works great. Handleing and absorb road bumping is excellent.Especially downpull type front derailleur cable route is really really great.
No inside cable route trouble. BB30 bb shell chain line is OK, Shifting is really excellent.Especially downpull type front derailleur cable route is really really great! (I love it!)


All good, but there is some minor issues.
First. This is disk brakes frame cycle cross, so I try to use avid bb7 ROAD brake. but brake pad lever id slightly touch the frame. But cutting out a little bit of pad lever will solve a problem.(I did)

Second. I make this bike for touring. So I put 700x40C road tyre. Front fork clearance is OK but rear seat stay tube clearance is really tight.
It's rolling well. But If I ride in mud road it'll be problem.

Third. The head set came with no carbon compress parts.And no spear hose clamp parts.

That's all ,and for a while , it will be my every day bike.

Great looking bike. I wish they would make them with thru-axle dropouts for the front and rear wheel. Also, would be good to see the rear dropouts to be 142 x 12 mm thru-axle.

This reads like an advertisement from the factory... And the user has one post. Or maybe I'm just paranoid.

Hmmm interesting. I didn't see that the original poster had made this his first post. Really though, I don't bother looking at how many posts a user has. You're right though. For a first post, it sure is suspiciously advertisement like. I guess though we have to give the guy the benefit of the doubt until he proves us wrong.

The guy/girl didn't even include a link to where he bought the frame. Paranoid much?


I like the build, especially the super fat tires!

If it was an advert, why would the OP set it up with a tyre that only just clears the chainstays and a brake that doesn't fit without cutting bits off the pad? Everyone has to start somewhere :D

Oh, and in terms of whether this is a blatant advert, as noted, it is a little flawed if that was what was intended!

That said, the manufacturer is using the picture itself on the WWW. They do note that it is a customers build but there is a good chance there is a connection somewhere......
