- those ebay carbon 29er s are they….

Ssboggy – it was 456s they made too many of. There are a lot of differences between these frames and the lurcher. Just because they’re all made in the same country doesn’t make them all the same. The reviews seem pretty good, but it’s resale value that puts me off. An unknown quantity is likely to be worth sod all used.Posted 8 years ago
It doesn’t have nice stickers on it???
Its not so much the stickers but the fact that smeone will put their name to it and their reputation. Cheng Zin Manufacturing or whoever are an unknown quantity and without a trusted brand fronting their frames it is impossible to trust.Posted 8 years agobolMember

Quite a few brands are more than happy to put their names to these bikes. There’s a Focus on another thread that I’d swear is a nicely painted version of one of te more popular and well reviewed frames. If you know what you’re buying I’m fairly sure you’d have little more risk of it failing than with a Lynskey for example (happy Lynskey owner here incidentally). Some of the £200 frames on eBay would make me a little nervous though.Posted 8 years agoweeksySubscriber
Loads of people in the US as stated about on MTBR forum using them… all giving good reports. In all honesty i don’t see the point in geting one over my giant, looking at the weights and the weight mine was weighed at before purchase i rekon i may save 1lb maybe 1.5lb…. personally i’m of the thought that 1.5lb doesn’t really matter that much.Posted 8 years ago
I have a good friend in Taiwan and I’m more than aware of how many frames with different stickers come out of the same factory. I am also aware of how many other factories churn out of copies that look the same as the real thing. They may not however be the same in terms of their construction, material quality, fit and finish.Posted 8 years ago
