Very nice, I really like it. It looks much lighter then it is...

Sick looking bike
I have been looking at a Chinese fully for some time now, but as far as I know they don't make a 29er boost frame .

There are actually quite a few 27.5+ frames which are Boost spacing and 29er compatible (including a variant of the FM058).

Awesome build!
Personally I think the Bike Ahead wheels can be a bit of a hit or miss depending on what bike they're fitted to, but on this one it's just perfect. Really matches the frame well.

Thanks mate,
The custom paint is home made, and as your builds, this ain’t no show bike, it rides often whatever the weather on hard and technical trails.
See my Strava ;)

Wow, your FM058 looks totally awesome, especially the yellow accent. I'd choose it over M06 too if it was available back then, but for now I'll have to do with what I own. Mine weights in 9.2kg range with Thunder Burts and I've got some upgrades in mind to drop it to sub-9. I've been posponing making a thread for months, but you can check out the build thread on Chinertown.

thanks mate,
congrats for your build, yeah M06 is a little weak with a very low bb & some releases have a bad swing-arm (2 of my friends from light-bikes.fr had the problem)
thanks for the link to chimertown, I will give it a try ;)

@tskubi, I've seeked through the build thread on light-bikes.fr for a bit and noticed that the rocker arm design differs from the M06 one to a substantial degree: it's plate based instead of a single part and is 80g less. I wonder how plated design compares to a bridged/solid one, especially if it makes the rear end less stiff to a detectable degree when used for XC and light trails.
