Saw this listing came up on my search list, since I'm currently keeping an eye out for a 795 frameset Aerolight (XS)

Where's the integrated brake on this frame? I don't see it on the fork. Looks a bit shady

What do you guys think?

Well, without the integrated brakes it'd be a 795 light, not aerolight.

But it's still a blatant fake. Wrong BB, wrong steerer, wrong stem, wrong e-post (probably better than the original Look one though :P ).

Even the Mondrian is wrong. They've tried to copy the Lemond 30th Anniversary by the look of it, but the placement on the seatmast and the colour sections on the TT are off.

BB doesn't look like 65mm...

795 fork is "steepless" , this on image is not.

IMHO : fake.
EDIT: I've read description. No doubts fake.

in such cases use CIA rule : in case of any doubts , there's no doubts .

I can be wrong, and have plenty of examples for that ;)

Fake. Bb30 as in description. No zed cranks which would typically be included.
