Title: Albastru's Dengfu M06 build
Post by: Albastru on August 29, 2017, 02:24:37 AM
Hello,

I have ordered 2 weeks ago a M06 frame from Melody (DengFu), 17.5 inches with 12x142 rear axle.
Also ordered it painted neon green with matt finish.

Allready have a 165x38 Fox DPS Kashima and a Fox 32 FIT 4 series 29er fork.
Going to use XT brakes with XT rotors.
Sram Eagle GX 12 speed drivetrain with 32t ring
DT Swiss 350 hubs, DT Swiss Revolution spokes and ZTC Crest Mk 3 rims
Got some continental xking 2.2 tires.

All i can do now is wait for the frame to arrive :)

Sounds like a nice build ! Really happy with my m06 (although its standing sad in the garage waiting for new crank and shock spareparts)

Btw, did you get any information if the frame was in stock and ready for paint or if it will be produced ?

It took about 4-5 days to get the frame to the paint shop. So i gues it wasn't in stock and i had to be produced.
Another 5 days for painting and then it was shipped.

The shipping went fairlu fast for me, took around 7 days so you shouldnt need to wait too long.

Is the bottle cage mounting holes fixed too?

Comparing that photo with some of the other ones ( eg. Steve's), it looks like they've moved them a bit closer to the bottom bracket

I don't know yet, got it 3 hours ago :)
They do seem to be moved abit closer to the BB.

Looking good :) It sure looks like the bottle cage holes are further down then on mine (ordered end of June-17)

Probably lower that mine as well. I've had mine for about a month.

Yeah, when i saw the fork listed on ebay i knew i had to have it.
Worse thing was that the seller didn't want to ship it to Romania. So i had a friend to recieve it in England and then ship it to Romania ...

Atm i am looking for bushings for the rear shock. Looks like i have 22.2x8 .
