- Chinese bike experiences.
got myself a flyxii 602 from aliexpress to replace my relatively heavy tcx2. i have just finished a season of cx racing on it and apart from a mech snappage due to deep sloppy mud a couple of weeks ago, the bike has been flawless all season. will continue to ride it on trails until next season and i’m also building a 2nd up as a spare too!!Posted 4 years ago
Nice rig v12jat… Close to pushing button on a Chinese cx frame.. Was looking at the 602 like yours but they don’t do a ud/matt version 🙁
Hard to tell from pic is yours 3k/matt ? Is yours bb30 ?
I’m now looking at F014 which looks mint and ud/matt version but bit more money ..

Here mine from Flyxii. Less than £300 delivered from the far east and without a shadow of doubt the best “feeling” road bike I have ever had. Smooth, responsive and quick handling, which may have something to do with the straight fork and the fact it is my first carbon bike. I have crashed it once and ridden it down small staircase and nothing has exploded or fallen in half. I was able to order it with an English (proper) BB thread and a 27.2 seatpost which was the deciding factor as it is compatible with my toolbox and spares bin.

my first chinese bike from carbonal is coming up to 2000miles, now my winter trainer, light and stiff enough. raced last season on a hongfu fm056 great quality but always a touch too long in the top tube, now my spare race bike. recently sold my road bike due to having too many bikes!Posted 4 years agotrevron73Member

Here’s mine, plenty of pics!
So far I’m very impressed. Good service from Hongfu. I wouldn’t hesitate in ordering another one! Time will tell………..Posted 4 years agobob_summersMember
My FM 066 arrived today after a month in Spanish customs while we argued over what it did or didn’t cost (waste of time that was) . Haven’t ridden it yet as it’s waiting on a chain and a couple of cables, but it looks nice quality and was easy to build up, no worries with non fitting headsets or cable routing etc.Posted 4 years ago
Comes in at a few grams under 6kg without the chain so I’ll have to fit some heavier wheels or I’ll lose it in this wind…bob_summersMember
To be fair it was my own fault. Tried to blag it as a ‘commercial sample’ (Hong Fu had marked it as such on the shipping note) and Customs were having none of it. It went to and fro for about a month, since they take a few days to answer any email and don’t bother to answer the phone. In the end they threatened to send it back to China so I stumped up VAT on the full amount (21% in Spain) plus charges, nearly 170€ in the end.Posted 4 years ago
Annoyingly this made it not much cheaper than a CAAD10 which is what I was originally going to buy. Lesson learnt…
I’ve took the plunge 🙂
Have one of these on way should get it this week …Posted 4 years ago
