Hi everyone. I'm thinking of doing a Lightcarbon LCG010-D gravel bike. I want to replace my trek Emonde SL Di2 with a do it all gravel. Does anyone have any past experiance(s) with this frame or other frames from them? If so can you elaborate in depth about the bike and your experience? Build quality, delivery speed, weights, comfort, longevity, paint job, etc. On a previous build for my gf I did a Honfu fm-098. Only tiff I had was the seatpost had to be cut and fiber grease had to be used to stop post slippage. Thanks in advance for your input.

For cabled disk, Juin-tech F1 and GT-F looks so much cleaner than TRP

... I'm still not 100% decided on the frame...
As you were initially looking for a more relaxed geometry, did you consider gravel frames ?
In addition they provide plenty enough tire clearance.

Here is my Carbonda CFR505 in road mode.
