Budget Carbon Frames! ...who has bought one?
#1
We all know the big brands when it comes to bicycle manufacturing (frames) and the assured quality you would expect when purchasing a well established brand, however, with manufacturing becoming ever more prevalent across the world (particularly Asia), i'm curious to find out if people are being lured in to purchasing the 'budget end' carbon fibre frame (or complete bike). We've all seen them on eBay (or other online sites) and I've read some things written by a few folk and i think i have my own opinion on the topic but curious to actually hear from people and to learn their experience of purchasing, riding and maintaining a low budget carbon fibre frame (or complete bike)... have you bought one??
  • Is the quality level poor, adequate or surprisingly good?
    Has the product lasted well - can it take the miles?
Interested to hear...
