Well, I deff need to put more km into it before I can give a well informed and experienced opinion (endless rain in BE and work atm) but its all great so far, I enjoy it a lot!

Thanks for all the comments re the cables, I will look into this the next couple of days :thumbup:

I bought a scale today, she is sitting now at 7.05kg. After cutting the seatpost she be well under 7kg, a different saddle and try #2 with the KMC chain should also save another 100-200g for cheap.

Hey Kidrob,

Where are you from? I also live in Belgium and ride a FM029.
We should do a china stealth carbon meet sometime!

Sorry if I've missed it but what is the finish on the frame?

Hongfu calls it "UD matte", it is the default color.

Painting it in orange (this is the color I was looking into before deciding not to) would have cost $68 back then.

Any Luck yet re-routing the di2 wire with the brake cable? My fm-008 is on its way. Plan on using the bar end junction A, and would to keep the cables super clean.

Thanks for sharing, been enjoying following your progress!

Installed a golden KCNC Adjustable Garmin Mount today and took the opportunity to re-do the front cable. Really need that golden KMC chain now.

Couldnt be arsed to de-mount the front to wire down through the head tube. To wire that way I think I would have to re-do the whole cabling which would mean to uninstall the BB and all, too... :? Maybe in some future...

I am at 7.05kg now.

Looks great- I’m installing the bar end junction on mine, ended up having to order the 1400mm E-TUBE wire to run from the junction b below all the way to the left shifter. I agree, would be a lot extra to reroute, but it’s defintely possible. I just have to figure out a way to secure the cable so that it doesn’t run on the fork.

Hi, great looking bike.

I put one together spring 17 and love it.

How are you getting on with the wheel/tyre clearance on the chain stays? I tried 25mm's on 21mm shimano rims and they rubbed. Slipped a set of 25's in on 25mm rims and they were v tight on clearance. My frame is a 56.

It's close but no problem at all:

Thanks, I've only got the training wheels in at the mo. The 25's were a friend's. The reason I asked is I'm getting a set of carbon deep section race wheels: I've opted to go with 23's, a set of far sports tubeless clinchers. I think at the end of summer I'll build a FM088 up for winter, with hydro disks.

Hello, I am interested in the frame FM-008 (Seraph). I'm just undecided with the frame size. I am 1,80m tall. I have a stride of 85cm. I would actually take 56. You have size 56, maybe you can give me a hint. Thank you.

Hi, urm, I have 58 with 186cm body height. So yeah, 56 sounds about right ;)

Indeed, "business as usual" I'd say. Put the battery into the seatpost with Ritchey Di2 Battery Rubber Mount. Works so well that I cant even get it out anymore :roll: :lol:

Don't forget to post a build log/pics of yours :beerchug:
