Thinking about the same frame, what tire width are you running and how's the clearance?

I'm not sure it's still available for purchase?

Dengfu sells the R01 ultralight which is the successor of the fm066 superlight. It's a classic frame with great handling

I actually just recently purchased and received the frame from Dengfu as well. Originally I was going for the R01 with BSA but apparently they didn't have one in stock in my size (54cm), though it was after they had confirmed availability through initial emails and I had already submitted payment. However, they did end up offering me a fm066sl with bb30 in 54cm which is what I ended up with. It didn't sound like to me that they had much more in stock though.

I also asked Dengfu regarding the missing delete plate, they said they still have them in stock but quoted me an additional $20 for shipping... :?

Needless to say, my experience with them so far has not been the best.

On another note, I'm glad you posted this thread Maddie - it's actually one of the best ones I've come across for this frame and really solidified my decision in going with it in the end. :thumbup:
