Here's the site full of info on chinese frames: http://www.velobuild.com/

I believe clyde's model is a "Dengfu FM098", I'm looking into buying a frame myself :D



Yep correct, FM098. Weighs about 7.6kg. 61cm frame. Running a mix of Super Record/Record.
I love it.

That looks really nice, what's the weight for the frame? (especially interested given it's a big one).

Sold my mountain bike and got myself a road bike. :D

2012 Apollo Giro.

When I decided about a month ago that I was going to buy myself a road bike, Apollo was probably the absolute last brand of bike I thought I'd get... but here we are. :lol:

Umm yeah no idea... didn't weigh it before i built it. Cutting the weight off me would make more sense than worrying too much about the bike.

I love that. Looks like a solid frame too. I have to admit the stealth look is stunning, no one will see you coming.

So nice Crawf, Stealthy as. I love cleaning a Satin/Matt finish. Always looks so fresh.

They look quite chunky compared to other CF frames in this thread... are they heavy?

Love the Matt Black bikes - Looks awesome!

As an aside: Is there any reason that RD cable is so long?

Yep... My laziness for not trimming it. Also the steerer tube is uncut for the same reason. Will do it one day.

Black grips + black cable outers. Much, much nicer now.
