    Taiwan also is a member of the International Olympic Committee and sends its own team to the Olympic Games.

    Some clarification on Trigon CF 29er frame...



    This thing looks a bit different than the Hong Fu and FlyXi... Looks like a full FSR rear end to me, yeah?

    Here are some linkyz:
    Has geo: [ TRIGON ]
    Claims "4-linkage": :::: Welcome to TRIGON Bicycles ::::

    I'm a 29er n00b. But are those angles looking a bit steep or is it just me and my 26er bias?

    Trigon's 29er is far more interesting that Flyxii & co.
    would like to know the price.

    Your right its a different frame, but very similar. The rear brake is different and top tube is quite different

    4 1/2" of rear travel and 490mm front axel to crown. I'd like to know what's going on there.

    MagicCarpet, maybe it's misprint or for small size.

    or they have used the same geo drawing from their carbon hardtail 29er here

    EDIT:
    then again maybe they haven't given one has linkages drawn and the other doesn't, sorry

    So, I got a response from someone named Stella from Trigon. That frame (SQC01) is $1305, + $396 UPS shipping. No clarification if it comes w/ a rear shock.
    At that price, I'd be looking at a Titus El Guapo or even a Kona Satori...yeah, it's not carbon but whatev. Email below:

    We dont have any distributor in US and we can sell the SQC01 frame to you directly.
    The price for the frame is US$1305.
    The delivery fee via UPS express is US$396

    Please let us know if you have any question,



    Best Regards,

    Edit: I mean, as a carbon frame, it's still a deal (kinda). Looking at Stella sig, I think they might be sourcing it from the mainland somewhere... Let's find out where and if there's a better price, yeah?

    My experience with Flyxii on their FR211 is they appear to be the "left over" or "second" or "discarded" distributor for Dengfu. Several who has taken delivery of the FR211 and matching fork have had small cosmetic issues. Mine had a chip in the seat tube collar area and a uneven finish carbon layer at the seat tube collar. Another recent poster had to sand down his steer tube to install the headset.

    You can save a little cash with Flyxii and if you can deal with cosmetic issues then I recommend them. If you want a closer to perfect product I would pay the premium for Dengfu.

    I disagree with this, maybe with the HT not with the Full suspension models.

    I think that 1800$ is for frame w/o shock. it's rather expensive. SC TB is more attractive in that case.

    No wheels it was 9kg.

    Have you got the suspension dialed nicely? Pedal vs bump compliance? Any issues with the rear suspension pivot or anything else?
