    Comfort/carbon layup of Chinese carbon frames? Scott Scale clone

    A few have been likened to a Scott Scale 29er copy or a Specialized Stumpjumper 29er HT copy in terms of geometry and weight, give or take.

    But how is the comfort or carbon layup. There is 1 or 2 that mimic the Scale geometry but the Scott is renowned for its SDS. Do the Chinese clones have the same "comfort" or are they on the other side of ride-a-bility for lack of a better word.

    Normally the HongFu FM056 is considered a close match to Scott.


    ViltusVilks;9689978]Finally finished china 29er for training.
    Chinese frame was modified - rear shifting/brake internal cable tubes were cut out and reversed, so i can setup shifter and brakes without extreme angles.

    Actual weights for 20"
    Frame: 1350gr (1400gr with headset bearings)
    Fork (cut): 560gr

    ebay seller: a_baygoods
    frameset: carbon 29er UD

    Scott Scale is stiffer even with SDS and lighter frame
