    I contacted hongFuv via the earlier link in the thread looks like the same frame you have there. They did not supply geometry head set (straight or tappered or suspension travel shock eyelet to eyelet. Did you get any of that from them? If so could you post? Thanks in advance!

    I did business with Shenzhen Honsen sports since Hong Fu never responded to my emails. Hong Fu mentions that their frame has convertable thru axle dropouts so I'm not sure if it's the same otherwise ,anyway i have attached a snapshot of the geometry chart they gave me .

    Can any of these frames handle a 650b 140mm fork or 69er setup with a 100mm fork?

    On the Hong-Fu Geometry photo oh Flickr, the A-C is listed as 485mm, which is suitable for a 100mm fork.

    A 140mm fork would really raise the BB.

    >Dropout spacing spot – on ; BB threads OK; Headset housing seems to have the right tolerance,but bearings not fitted yet.

    DON’T LIKE
    >Internal routing for rear brake - too much fuss (and bleeding required) for limited advantage
    >Chainstays are a bit on the chunky side, I expect a relatively harsh ride, we'll see.
    >No chainsuck protection plate embedded in the chainstays
    After a long wait due to a couple of misplaced orders (never buy anything around the Christmas period, lesson learned) , I finally started my build.

    I have to update my initial impressions about the headset cups - the fitting is slightly loose, to the point I could quite easily slip the bearings in and out.
    Not loose to the point of dropping, but loose enough to require some Loctite. I will keep you posted about the lifespan of this "repair", I think it will be permanent, but we'll see.

    Anyone had this experience?

    That's the Flyxii(a_baygoods on ebay) FR-501 frame right?
    What size did you get and how tall are you if you don't mind me asking? Does the toptube feel short? How is the standover? What do you think is the max tire that will fit in the back?
    And, more pics please! I'm about to pull the trigger on this frame too. Just need to decide what size to get. I'm 5'9" so I usually ride medium or 17", 17.5" frames but this frame's really short top tube has me kind of worried.

    Looks like a faux bar design.

    Ok ,just got to take it out for a short spin today,I should have waited for my chainguide to arrive though as I dropped the chain about 10 times even with a type 2 derailleur . Anyway ,the bike is excellent so far ,I didn't notice any brake jacking like with the Superlight and the 1.5lb lighter frame was certainly noticeable on acceleration and climbs. I have an old Float R Ava shock on it right now and It still felt better when standing and pedaling compared to the Superlight . Was thinking of getting a new fox ctd shock for it but that may be wasted money.Very happy with this cheap generic Chinese frame ,go suck it Santa Cruz !

    When I originally asked about painting the frame I asked what colors and scheme examples he had and he said there were none available for this frame since it was so new. So for 28.00 I figured I would let them paint it whatever scheme and color they wanted. Well I guess the language barrier or something and they must consider the glossy coat as painted. To answer your question though , no he did not reply to my question.

    Wow! The rear tire clearance is little bit tight. Is it really 650b frame?

    It is tight but the frame is xc 100 mm travel rather than all mountain ,perfect for here in the south east.
