The head angle of 71.5° would be a no go for me. My favourite chiner frame is a Tideace FM-M009. Have a look on aliexpress.

I would eloxadize it. Otherwise it might soon start to corrode. Especially in combination with carbon.

Nice build story. Thanks for sharing! Only the saddle is a bit bulky compared to the rest. I would consider trying sth. lighter. Doesn't have to pure carbon. Maybe one of these: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/GUB-full-3k-T800-carbon-fiber-super-light-weight-127g-bicycle-carbon-hollow-saddle-leather-saddle/32768889424.html

Hi, I got my frame today!
...
More parts - and pictures - to come!

Awesome! I'm also interested in this frame. What about making your own build thread?

The only problem i can see with the frame is they have positioned bottle cage too far up the down tube. A bottle won't fit under the shock and if i turn the shock around i cant use the remote.
i see from previous drawing on here, dengfu have the cage bolt hole drilled a 180 from the BB which would work ok........my frame is drilled at 225mm which is useless. :'(

Wow, that's big issue. A xc bike without bottle cage is next to useless. Did you confront them with this error? Normally they should replace that frame. Would be a test to check the real customer friendliness.
As a fallback it should be possible to use a cage with straps.

Yeah, you are indeed right!  ;) Communication is very cultural dependent. This is a good example. Plus I am not the most patient guy. Especially if I spend loads of money. But if I know what to expect I'm calmer and more patient.
Anyways, I finally got an answer. The items are shipped and I have my tracking number plus pictures which I don't want to hide from you :D. Incredible weights! I asked for lighter samples, but I couldn't imagine they would be that light!  8)  (I hope they last...)

Yes I did have contact. I asked about a tracking number. He said the rims were not shipped yet. To my question (which I asked twice) when they would be shipped I didn't get a reply.  :-\

Glad to hear that the items are finally shipped. I'm currently making similar experiences. I ordered part for my new bike from several chinese sellers. From Dashine I've ordered my frame and bar. They arrived about 8 days later which is amazing. Same happened with my fork. I got it about one week later. Crank and hubs are on their way. But my rims aren't even shipped yet. I ordered them from XMcarbonspeed over two weeks ago and they aren't even shipped yet. When I asked (twice) when they will be shipped I got no answer. So I hope there's still hope that I will get my rims...

Happily there's not only one   8). You will find exactly this frame in xcbarny's thread 'Dashine Bike Carbon 29er Singlespeed Build' purchased from Dashine. Upon his review and build I also just ordered the frame (and a cool bar). The contact so far is a delight. Quick and precise answers. It took them about 5 work days to send the frame. The tracking says it landed in Switzerland already (2 days later). Let's see if my frame is just as nice as xcbarny's.

I was especially referring to the 041 when saying that a set back sp might be too flexy (also depending on the post). I agree with you that the bike setup is also individual, but I would try to minimize the horizontal distance between saddle and bb to achieve a better power transmission.

I just know the german version - bike24.de. They are pretty big in Germany. Seems to be the same company. I've ordered there several times. No issues.

I was wondering anyways why one would use a set back seat post. It changes the intended bike geo. You would sit too far behind the BB. Plus I would say a 27.2mm set back seat post might flex too much on the 041.
I'm curious to hear from the next test ride.

@Carbon_Dude:
what trails are you riding? I never rode 1x11 and I really should. But I doubt that I would be happy with 1x. (I'm rather light compared to size.)
Firstly, the range for the marathons I ride would probably not sufficient. If I chose a gear to climb 3000ft with steep sections I would not be able to keep up on the long descents.
Secondly, the gear jumps would be too big on sections with little speed change.

Still I need to try a 1x11 to see if my theory is correct.

I wonder how the saddle rides. Cool build by the way!

Hey congrats to you and great your family seems well!
Small wonder you didn't have much opportunity to ride. It'll probably stay like that for some time.  ;)

But still. Your description of your last ride sounds really good. I hope I can place an order soon.
