I really don't know exactly why I decided to start this project. Truth is I don't actually need this frame as it makes my 5th road bike in a raw.
During the long wait of this journey from China to its new home, I had second and third thoughts of selling it the next day it was supposed to be delivered. But now its built up and I am really happy on how it looks and more importantly on how it rides: smooth and fast!
And finally, after all, I do own an original, authentic Chinese bike ;o) So here the build list and some shots!
