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

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:
