I'm torn between the Dengfu M06 and Ican S8. If I was sure the tire clearance of one or the other is the same as my IP-036, this would be the winner.

Nice!  Thank you!

There is a great deal at for Marzocchi (Fox performance) Transfer dropper posts internal and external. They are at 167.23€ or 189,08€ with remote. This is clearly the best deal I've ever seen for a transfer dropper.

A few photos with clearance might be useful for other people interested in doing a 29er build....

Indeed, it would be interesting.

Love your build. I plan on building the P8 very soon, then running an adjustable headset if I feel it needs to be more slack.

Can you tell me where you can find an adjustable headset for IS42/IS52 (what is used on all the chiners)? I searched a lot and only found that it wasn't possible because of lack of space.

Thank you for the pictures! Please give us some feedback of your build and how it rides when you're finished.

Compatible with Shimano? From what I know, Shimano did not release a 12 speeds drivetrain yet.

I asked ICAN about pricing and cable routing since there was no clue about an internal routing for a dropper post.

First answer was this:

For S8 frame, USD730/set (frame,headset,hanger)
Geometric chart attached ,please check ,which size do you like ?
If in stock ,we will send out within 1-3days after payment

For cable routing ,all inner cable routing, photos attached ,if you are not sure ,before shipping ,we will mount the cable for you like the S8 photo

So I sent another question only about the dropper post routing. The answer is the following:

S8 frame could mount inner cable dropper seatpost
We confirm S8 has the design

Nice day

This frame look perfect except for one thing....2.2 MAX tire width. I can live with a BB92 instead of BSA but such a narow tire width isn't appealing at all.

I'm on my 5th summer on my FM098. Mine is 3K gloss and I didn't put any protective anywhere. No chips or anything so far on the frame and I don't see the point of adding any protection to it. It's a road bike frame after all.

Btw, it's a great and solid frame. I really like it. :)

I'm 175cm tall and ride a 17.5" IP-036 frame with a 80mm stem and 720mm bars. If it wasn't of the longer seat tube, I would have gone with the 19" and a shorter stem.

I've been using Ed Hubs with ceramic bearings on my road bike for the past 5 years and they are still working perfectly.
