It is a Token X-Wing, and yes it's really flexy! It's very comfortable as a result and takes out a lot of the harshness from bumps and potholes. Longest ride I've done on it was about 4 hours and I had no saddle related issues at the end. Previous saddle was a Selle San Marco Regal e which I'm sure was a bit wider but I decided to try this without thinking about the size too much. I got it cheap second hand so thought I'd give it a go and luckily it's comfortable. And only 114g.

Looks good.
The Brooks bar tape should last for years.
Enjoy

philhul, that saddle looks a winner, is there a rider weight limit. At 190lbs I fear I maybe too much of clyde to make it work

New seatpost, handlebars and wheels. With the cassette and chain fitted now 6.6kg.

I think this could be the end of the line. I'm a bit bored of the stealth look and I've got an itch for steel.

This bike looks amazing.. Frame looks a lot like a pina Dogma.

The only problem I have with Chinese DESIGNED products and bikes is the uncertainty of the quality and durability... I say this because I did bought a Chinese phone for 100+ euro's and it literally fell apart after 20 days in which I had to recharge the phone after alomst each call....

Looks nothing like a Dogma.

There are plenty of owners on these forums who can testify to the durability of these Chinese frames.

I was thinking the same thing about looking like a dogma. There are chinese frames on ebay from the same company that has the wavy fork and stays like one.

Definitely not a Dogma! It's far too light anyway :wink:

Carbonzone had plenty of good feedback so I was comfortable buying from them. Would be more wary of a new seller.

hetchins68 - the bars are great and at 182g a bit lighter than I was expecting for ergonovas.

A dogma? guys you should go to the doctor to have your vision checked up. It could be a trek madone replica, but not a Dogma. This design is a few thousand times better than any current Pinarello :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :welcome: :beerchug:
Happy Trails !!!
