Suggestion for a new frame

Postby Rone69 » Thu Oct 11, 2018 10:29 pm

Hello to all,
I'd like your advices for a new carbon frame, I'm looking for a non-branded/Chinese road frame, the features that interested me are:
- good construction quality
- good ride quality, I'm looking for an all-rounder with good climbing and descendig quality.
- tyres clearance up to 30mm or higher
- direct mount rim brakes
- seat tube angle 73° or 73.5° (in size 54-55) with standard seatpost

So far, I've found only two frames with this specs:
the first one is beautiful, but it's seem like a knoc-koff of the Tarmac SL6, is the "Fasterway Classic" I don't find any info about the frame or about the manufacturer:

the second one, is the Gotobike B40 aka Winspace SLC 2.0, I've found many pics, it is used by some cycling society, some of wich are semi-pro ..

You could check out weight weenies web site, lots of stuff on there about Chinese carbon, or look at Hong Fu frames like fm088

Thanks!
Yes, just a short ride, 59km +850, 3 climbs, the frame is responsive, stiff enough, not harsh, absolutely comfortable, the direct mount brakes are amzing, much better than the "standard" brakes.
