My riding buddy has just gone done big time and destroyed his frame. Unfortunately no insurance but luckily no physical damage to him. He will not be able to afford top end replacement frame or neither wants to go through fleabag. Question is are the Chinarellos any good, how much and through what website. Hope you guys can help. Thanks

I have bought chinese carbon frames from PedalForce and from China though Both worked out well. If you go PedalForce then you have someone in the US to deal with if you need to return something. But they do not do Pinarello copies.

Quite a bit of information on good Chinese frames that don't cost too much.

Start here.

Also look up Neo frames (the owner is an occasional member of WW).
