First impressions on the shakedown ride are very positive, the wheels feel amazing, the frame is fairly stiff but comfortable at the back end, the front feels very direct, but a bit harsher than my Scott (maybe due to the Alloy vs Carbon bar), but either way, not too bad.
It was a bit too, all black, so decided to have some decals made up, I got tons printed so will change the colours around fairly frequently as and when I get bored!

The bike is not really a weight weenie exercise, but point noted on the tubes.
Ok, my bad for not knowing the SFN
The bike isn't a weight weenie, but if you're using an ultrastar copy (I broke one already), you could take a little bit of weight to make it sub 7 kg
Keep posting photos and reviews from time to time.
i am pretty much interrested in building up the same frame.
i own already three open mould frames (1x ican AC058 1 dengfuFM069, 1x xmiplay IP106) so i am pretty much familliar with chinese 'open moulds'.
So far, i guess you have ridden this beauty. can you report sth on how it climbs? how it corners? how does it feel on fast pace/downhill. did u have any quality issues?
Is it stiff on the BB?
would be great if u could answer my questions. bets regards
