Anybody has FM028 frameset?

Looking for feedback on the FM028 ISP frameset (this is NOT the TT frame) from Greatkeen. Trying to decide between it and the Fm015 from Hongfu.
Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

Ummm...... You could read the hundred pages on the "CARBON E BAY THREAD!"
Or not.[/QUOTE

I have read all 27 pages and if you would read them, you will see that there are a few references to that frame but nobody has actually built one yet so that's why I'm asking in a separate thread. :mad2:

Just to carry on a post from v 4.0
I am of the belief that Carbonzone on ebay is either Mina or Jenny as I had an email conversation about a frame that they (she!) said would not be a problem where as other sellers just gave the standard reply of 'not available'
Then after looking at the Hong-Fu site the price of the item I was requesting had gone up in price.

Mina works at Deng Fu not Hong Fu. I think Carbonzone buys from/sells for Deng Fu.

My order from Dengfu arrived today. Shipped from China on 2/17 and picked up in the USA 2/24. FM018 non-ISP, aero bars and brake set. I'll do a rough fit tonight. Pics in the near future. Like most, I worked with Mina and she was awesome.

If you dont mind me asking, where do you live? My FM028 shipped on 2/21, but tracking hasn't been updated since then. Hopefully it is well on it's way. I am wondering how long is normal to take to get to FL. I'll be out of town the week of the 7th so hopefully it comes before then!

Have you been checking the USPS website? Supposedly, after it hits the US, the USPS takes over.

Question regarding shipping from Hongfu: Did she (jenny) give you a tracking number or did you have to ask it? My stuff was supposed to ship in the past couple of days, but I haven't heard anything.

Hi guys. I recently purchased the RFM101 from great keen. I ordered the 52cm frame and then realized they are measured differently to the standard way. Im 5ft8inch. Will the bike be really small for me? i dont mind having a smaller frame for a more aggressive position but i dont want to be riding something about as big as a BMX

It seems like gotobike is no longer selling the Exocet frame. I can't find it on their site.

I'd like to pick one up but I'd like to order through ebay preferrably or paypal, but it seems like nobody is listing them on their sites anymore.

Can anyone post a link?

I've also been thinking about the P3 wannabe from carbonzone. Anyone tried their aerobars?

I've been looking at these for a while and now that Felt is trying to renege on my B16 warranty, I'm rather bitter.

Just a quick update, some of you may remember I had what appeared to be a crack on the inside of the seat tube on my FM015 (from Deng Fu)

I had some trouble emailing Mina with the pictures of the seat tube, but I believe they have gone through. Mina told me about a week ago that an engineer would review the pictures I sent and she would get back to me. I have not heard anything since despite a couple of a follow up emails... :(

Yep just now checked USPS and it just updated, frame arrived in New York today. For whatever reason there were no "normal" shipping updates until it got to the US today.

Mine is from Deng Fu and I asked for tracking. Does anyone know if these require signature on delivery?
