BXT Pro 1.0
« on: May 25, 2017, 10:34:34 PM »
Looking to build a road/tri bike for the daughter.  She is 13 yo, 4'10" inseam 28" weighs about 70 lbs.  Her measurements put her into the 46/47 cm frame size.  Interested in the BXT Pro 1.0 because it is di2 and direct mount brake ready.  The smallest frame size is 49, so I think it will allow her to grow into it.  Don't think she is going to be any taller than 5'.

I don't know much about BB so would appreciate the help.  Looking at BSA or PF30.  Leaning towards a threaded BSA for maintenance ease.

Check this one out:
http://www.gotobike.com.cn/46.html

The smallest size has a reach of 505mm compared to 515 on the BXT. 

I just bought a B36 from them.  If they don't have your size in stock, it takes about a month to manufacture.  Shipping to Canada took a week.

The way it works with Dengfu, Carbonspeed, Honfu, Gotobike is you email or chat with one of their reps to figure out the cost.  I dealt with Nancy over email and wechat.  My B36 frame cost 550 USD + 100 USD for shipping.

That TT bike I linked you has direct mount mounts.

Just chatted with Nancy.  $700 painted/$650 in gloss carbon+$110 shipping.  I think I'll just stick with the BXT for $400 shipped and spend my money on Ultegra Di2 components.

You can also check there:

I bought my road bike frame with them a few years back. At that time, they were dealing with Dengfu, Hongfu and IPlay and now I think they sell stuff that comes directly from the frame makers.

Those are about the same price as gotobike but don't look as well thought out.  I really like the gotobike one, but it is more than I want to pay and it is relatively heavy at 1300 gm for the frame alone.  The BXT is 1690 gms with frame, fork, and seat post.

My son's next bike is most likely a BXT. He grows too fast... I made him a fantastic 24" MTB 3 years ago that is almost already too small. Not sure what he will want next, MTB hardtail, Full-sus, road bike? BXT frames look good to me.
Keep us updated on those BXT frames (product and service)!

Thanks

Did you ask them already if they provide a simple black or custom painted version?

All I want is a black gloss carbon finish and they said that they can do that.

I may have calculated incorrectly.  My daughter's inseam in a little over 28"  If the BXT's stack is 520mm and the radius of 700c wheels is roughly 13" the the stand over would be (13+ (52/2.54))=33.5"!  This will be too tall for her.  I'll have to look for something much smaller maybe something in a 46 or even 44cm.  No real good choices in carbon with di2 and direct mount brakes. :(

So after much searching I've decided to get the ICAN Aero004 frameset in 45cm glossy UD and BSA BB.  https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/ICAN-Bike-Good-Quality-Road-Bike_60624186821.html?spm=a2700.8443308.0.0.fUjl7i
I paid $528 shipped to USA and that is with the 2.8% credit card fee.
