Dengfu FM476 275x3.0 Hardtail
« on: May 01, 2017, 05:22:03 PM »
Has anyone gotten a quote for this frame yet?

Looks pretty good. You're standard XC/TR geometry, nothing too crazy, although a pretty short A2C for the fork.

I'm looking for a XC/TR 275+/29 hardtail that can run either 275x3.0 (or 3.25") or 29x2.5 tires. HongFu listed the same bike as being able to fit 3.2" tires, so I'm hopeful this is a big clearance bike.

I don't want to a raised chainstay bike as I'm looking for something a big more burly; I'm a heavy rider who pushes hard. I've heard reports of flex in the Stache, which leads me to believe the carbon stuff coming out of China will be no better.

It looks like it's roughly $495 shipped to the US. The CS measurement appears to be a bit long at 440mm. I have the Workswell / Sobato 29+ and that is 440 for 29+ or 425 for 29/27.5+ (it has two options). I know you don't want the elevated stay, I was just giving a reference.
