Just taking a thought for a walk here, so don't flame me...
I need to replace the frame on the roadbike I use for Crit racing as it's a shade on the small side. Now, anyone that's raced crits knows that you don't use a bike that you can't afford to replace! So I've been on the look out for something cheap but tough, stiff and light.
To buy a Far East frameset from a UK supplier (Ribble, Planet X etc), I'm looking at £500-800. To buy an blank Far East frameset, I'm looking at £350-£450.
BUT... I can get one of these for around £450...
OK, so it'll always be a fake, but it looks FAR nicer than a blank naked carbon frame... I understand the arguments against these bikes, but I wouldn't be buying this instead of genuine Cervelo, I'd be buying it instead of an unbranded version of the same sort of thing. Anyway, my best bike is a real Cervelo R5, so it's not like they've never had a financial contribution from me!
Maybe it won't be as good as the real thing, but judging by the quality of some of these frames, it'll be as good as any other £400 Chinese carbon frame - which tends to be bloody good.
