>>1631225>$3100 leafbucks for a bottom-tier alibaba frame+wheels with an ultegra groupset that was mistakenly painted to say "105" on itShut up and take my money.
>>1631225Just buy something used, it'll be much better than that chink shit.
>>1631225How the fuck is that too good to be true? The image isn't Ultegra OR hydraulic, and its an awful deal regardless. You could get a 2021 Emonda sl 5 with real 105 for $3k with a warranty. Or buy one of these used ~3k ~2017 Specialized Tarmacs with dura ace di2 that dentists have been putting up for sale. Look harder my guy. that aint close to it
>>1631230All frames are manufactured in China.And this frame looks like most of the standard modern aero frames you get with the big brands.
>>1631232t.has no clue whatsoever
>>1631225I know a guy with one of these Sava frames or whatever the text is supposed to say. He's been riding it for 4 or 5 years so I think they're fine. People will gripe about the cable disc brakes, but my experience with TRP Spyres and Yokozuna Motokos is that they perform just as well as dry rim brakes, except the discs aren't so handicapped by wet conditions.
>>1631347>it's made in the same hemisphere as an S-works therefore it's just as good
>>1631357It probably was made in the same fucking factory
>>1631374>it's made in the same factory as an S-works therefore it's just as good
>>1631348I have a bit of an idea. A year ago I bought some carbon forks from aliexpress and they shattered 6 months later, putting me in the hospital.
>>1631398lmao reallytell the story please
>>1631402>riding down a hill>hit pothole at the bottom>right fork breaks>wheel twists >fall over the handlebars>break my wrist and get lots of road rash
>>1631376>implying specialized give a shit about customers when they sell frames that cost $100 to manufacture for $5000
>>1631347Mine is made in the UK :^)The other 2 Netherlands.))My old one Germoney :^))))and Muh Giant In taiwan ,;'^))))))

Carbon is Death
>>1631482"Carbon"It's mainly plastic with some layers of carbon wrapped around.
>>1631464I never post on g, plus your link doesn't work.
>>1631562Its a disposable bike.
>>1631568What brand fork, newfag?
>>1631577One of those $50 no name ones from aliexpress.
>>1631579So no brand at all? Play stupid game win stupid prize.
>>1631347Both of my specialized bikes are made in taiwan. Not in mainland china where all those liveleak rekt videos are from.
>>1631605God, you are absolutely clueless, a twat.Get informed, at least watch some of the guys on YT, Durianrider, ChinaCycling and so on.They all say Specialized frames are MADE in China, they are then shipped to Taiwan and painted/assembled there.
>>1631347delusional cheapskate copeyou chronic shitposters complain about my advice/opinions but what about yourshttps://www.velonews.com/not-all-frames-are-created-equal-a-look-deep-inside-the-carbon-in-counterfeit-bikes/>“The [S-Works] frame I wanted was $3,500, and over there it was $700. I believed they were using the same molds,” Parsons said of the counterfeit frame he purchased. “There is no scenario [where] I could recommend a knockoff frame to anyone. They’re terrifying. At minimum, it will result in a terrible crash.”https://www.bicycling.com/bikes-gear/a20045553/to-catch-a-counterfeiter-the-sketchy-world-of-fake-bike-gear/>When the frame arrived, he took it to a shop to have the parts switched from his old BMC. But from the start, there were issues. Over the next few months, he began to notice that the dropouts weren’t totally aligned. To spin freely, the rear wheel had to be clamped slightly askew. Other oddities: Standard water bottle cage bolts didn’t fit in the frame. And after a few weeks, the screw-in cable-stop adaptor for the internally routed cables began to rust. These weren’t the only signs something was amiss. Not long after getting the bike, he had an unsettling experience on a descent. “In the chainstays and fork, there was a kind of squishy feel,” he recalls. “I just didn’t have any confidence in high-speed turns.” Similar sensations followed on other rides. Additionally, he felt unstable on the bike when sprinting. A return trip to the shop to try to fix some of the issues confirmed what Tombragel had begun to suspect. The shop owner showed a visiting Specialized rep this mysterious Venge with misaligned dropouts. After a few moments, the rep dropped the bad news: “That’s a fake.”
>>1631580not the anon you are talking to but the brand soesn't matter. The """brands""" on aliexpress pop up and dissolve every few months. The companies liquidate and rebrand all the time to avoid liability when they get outed for selling death traps. There is no accountability for these people so they don't give a fuck about quality assurance.

>>1632858All your picture tells me is that specialized has far more variation in whatever parameter they measured than the 'counterfeit' frames. This means their production is extremely inconsistent and their quality control does not exist lol. Compare that with the fake, which is far more consistentMoral of the story is that the big brands don't give a shit about the stuff they're selling you either
>>1632993>recording a tv screen with your phonePhoneposter level 99
>>1633002>low but consistent tensile modulus is better
>>1633002goddamn what a fucking retard.
>>1633002the measurements are in different places on the frame. it's designed to be stiffer in some places/directions and lighter/more compliant in other places/directions.
>>1631374>>1631376The only difference between a quality brand and cheap chinkshit frame (coming from the same factory) is Quality Control.
>>1632993Wasn't that because Team Sky was running tubulars way narrower than recommended on those wheels?
you could get for instance a CAAD13 disc 105 for less money. if you get too greedy by demanding a carbon frame and ultegra you have it coming to get chinked. the amazon bike is barely lighter and has no fancy carbon layup or EPS molding etc. if the claimed weight is even true it's probably for the smallest frame size while most western brands say the weight of the medium size fframe.
The brand is called Savadeck but it says SAVA on the bike? I wouldn’t trust that chink shit when the company doesn’t give a fuck about how they brand their product.
