The finish is a matte 12k, I was really wanting a matte black but he only had matte 12k in stock and I'm glad I got it. The carbon is hard to see until you get close up and adds to the look I think.

I don´t think it is 12K. More like 3K.

Many thanks


hello, i´m "el tonto del pueblo" as you once called me;
I would put my hand in fire betting this is 3k matt, not 12k. 12k have a much wider stripes.

awesome frame and great quality frame builder. actual producer is flybikes, hongfu is just the frame seller. I own a fm015 and i´m quite happy with the finish. Although i think this is a trek madone replica mold, it's illegal.

Finally got the bike out, about 70 miles the last two days to break it in a little. The SRAM is getting a little loose but I'm surprised at how nice the shifting is holding together with stretched cables. Here are a few pictures and a link to a video, the video shows the curves of the frame a little better (stopped during my ride and just made a quick video)

The final weight was 18 pounds 8oz ready to ride, decent.

Just to clarify from earlier questions, it is a 3k matte finish on the bike and wheels.
