Loving my CS-RB01+RF01 road bike now.

If I should buy a new bike, it's gonna be a 29+ CS-496.

Component Deals & Selection / Tubeless-Ready vs regular rims.

What exactly is the difference between these two?

I went tubeless early this year using an 8 or 9yr old model  WTB rim without thinking if it was doable or not. I just went for it, albiet I did had a mechanic do it for me. I just bought the tape and tubeless valve. I asked this because I'm been seeing/hearing/reading a lot of tubeless-ready rims, not to mention lots of folks new to cycling had been asking if they can go tubeless with their current setup.

31.6mm seat tube (someone talk me out of it, I only really want the option of running a dropper later on).

Dropper posts comes in 3 popular seat post size nowadays.

I got my carbon wheelset from Peter (Xiamen Carbon Speed)  over a month ago. Pretty much same specs as what you're looking for. I had DT Swiss hubs and Sapim spokes to go with it. Peter have options for hubs and spokes if you're not up to the ones I got. I've pretty much put around 400km on it, with a 200km ride and a few shorter ones. Loved them.

Quality is very good. Wheelset came assembled, trued and oacked very well. Dealing with Peter is great and after sales service is top notch. I am currently in the middle of a new project and actually dealing with him. It's gonna be my 3rd with him.

Serious question folks, not being sarcastic, I just really want to know.

Does stiffness automatically equates to durability?

Have you tried your local malls?  It might be different over here but we have some independent shops here that sells custom made stickers. They usually expands to even t'shirt and souvenirs printing (coffee mugs, ballpens, keychains and stuff).

Welcome to ChinerTown and congrats on your new purchase. To answer your questions...

1. Yes, you can ride it as is. Not painted and no clear coat. Most of us here in ChinerTown do that. I am, however, not sure about the UV coating but the resin isn't just gonna melt and let your carbon fiber frame fall apart... at least not for several years. The worst is you probably get some patches that may or may not be damaging to your frame's structure. Do ask DengFu if they have UV coating. If not, it's really your call if you want to have a UV coating.

2. Protective tapes for your frame isn't a must but it sure will minimize some unsightly chips or dent caused by flying debris.

Sorry for being late, I got busy and forgot about it. Here are the pics. Hopefully it helps.

Tire is Continental Gatorskin 700x25.

I tried on Maxxis Detonator 700x28 before but can't remember if it was tight or still had room. All I remember was it fits. I'll take a picture of the tire clearance on the 25c tomorrow so you can gauge it.

I got mine from Xiamen Carbon Speed... last year. I guess they discontinued it this year. Too bad, it's such a nice ride.

You'll have to email him for the price. His email address are list near the bottom of his home page.


Thanks for your review.  Can you tell me what is your tire size? As per you is there enough place for a 28mm tire?



Not sure he'll reply but I have the same frame too. I got 25mm tires on mine but had tried 28mm before, they do fit.

You start here. There's a good number of Chinese vendors who have good to great reputations here. Personally, I'd recommend checking out Peter's (Carbon Speed) site. Find a couple of models that you fancy, come back here and check if the chosen model/s had already been discussed and join in. Otherwise, create a thread for the chosen model and hopefully, someone got something to share about it.
