"Price for disc road frame fm166 is $660, fork/frame/seatpost included
fit for headset sizes 1 1/8" to 1 1/2",headset need $14"
I asked if their resin is UV stable and I did not get an answer.
Has anyone else asked this?
I see a lot of clearcoated Dengfu frames but if that sits in the sun awhile, it's going to yellow and lose integrity.

Since I can buy a Chinese titanium frame for a little more money, I have lost interest in Dengfu.
I emailed Nancy at HongFu with some inquiries and this is what she sent back ::
4% for paypal charge:$30.4
the total price:$790.4
my paypal account:email@example.com
including the frame,fork and seatpost.
the frame is all inner cable,including the brake cable.
it is 135mm for the rear hub space
now have one 56cm BSA UD matte in stock.

(That sure is a sweet bike.)
The Whisky 9 fork is also a thru-axle fork.
This seems appealing, though it definitely further limits hub options. I wonder who makes that 24h front thru-axle. I also wonder if 24h is sufficient, though that is obviously a very different topic.
When i finally build my disc road bike, I will probably build the front wheel with a hub that has interchangeable axle options.
Just pop the end caps off and replace them with the 15mm caps.
Before the Defy frame arrived I thought it would be 1 1/2 at the bottom (thought it would be a Giant OverDrive 2 headtube, turns out it was a OverDrive 1), and already ordered a disc fork (the one from this frame: http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product ... 23417.html) with that sizing. The fork looks great and is very light, am very bummed that I won't be able to use it with the Defy frame. No way I can make it work somehow? I know that there are conversion headsets that allow to use a tapered fork with a straight 1 1/8 headtube (by putting the headset below the headtube), does something like that also exist for the 1 1/4 headtube with 1 1/2 steerer combination? Or (and I am aware that this might sound idiotic) since I noticed that there was some space left between the 1 1/2 steerer and the 1 1/4 headtube - are there maybe thinner bearings that I can use to make it work? E.g. 3.5mm instead of 7mm thick? I am aware that this might make the bearings rather fragile.
Grateful for any insight on this! Would be annoyed if I had to send back this pretty fork!
And UpFromOne - is that Focus already out? I thought it was a prototype only. And I cannot seem to find any info on the headtube dimensions for it.
I have another frame with a 1 1/4" taper, would love to secure a light disc fork for that.
I've even heard of 1 3/8" tapered steerers in addition to the 1 1/2"...this is almost as bad as BB "standards"!
