My question is simple :: is there a "spreadsheet" of sorts that shows the Chinese frame name as compared to its brand name counterpart?

For example -

Dengfu FM098 = Specialized Venge
Dengfu FM028 = Trek Madone (I think)
Etc.

There are so many FM model numbers and the pictures are always so horrible resolution that I can't tell.

Any help would be appreciated.

not that i have found, i owned a FM028 and it wasnt a trek maddone, i lined it up to my friends identical sized maddone and there were subtle differences, the closest match we got was to a canyon a few years ago. If you find a spreadsheet with the details please post it, would be a great read!

Whatever is created, for clarity (on both sides of the "chinese frame" vitriol) we should write "looks like" not "equals"

Looks like is a better term to use i agree.
