    Neilsonwheels – what are the risks (other than product quality) with ordering from aliexpress?

    I’ve seen one or two that look like what I’m after and have a good number of orders/feedback.

    If I use creditcard am I protected if the goods don’t turn up?

    Or even any recommendations for specific sellers on there?

    I have bought 3 frames from Hong Fu, great service and communication on every purchase. FM001 & FM066 road frames and a FM016 MTB frame.

    Fogliettaz, I meant on Aliexpress but the Hongfu FM066 looks ace – think I’ll send them an email….

    Hey ChunkyMTB,
    Some nice bikes there! Running the hard tail with no front chain device? Any issues with the chain coming off?
    That dirty disco replica looks lovely as well.

    That pic was taken just as it was built, MRP arrived a couple of days later. Dirty Disco isn’t mine, its one on the huge Chinese carbon thread on a dutch website. Was just highlighting what you can get direct.

    Latest pics, now with some squidgy up front.

    Given the Chinese factory that I am going to start importing rims from make the De Rosa 838 (not a copy the real thing) I’d say there are good chinese carbon frame makers. There are those that also do copies. If you can buy direct from a factory. You can tell them apart from resellers and the factories website is normally crap

    that’s interesting which rims exactly

    ChunkyMTB – that looks really nice with the lefty.
    One of the cleanest looking bikes I’ve seen with the internal cable routing.
    Good job fella…

    A quick question for those of you with the Carbonal,Flyxii or Hongfu mtb frames. What BB do they take. I’ve looked on their various sites and they seem to list a few types. They all look very good and am quite tempted.

    My Hongfu takes a ‘normal’ threaded external HTII style bb, but you can specify that or BB30 when you order.

    cheers for the reply. I’d much rather get a normal threaded type.
