Built up a few Cheap Chinese Carbon frames in the last couple of years...

Been riding this one, put about 600 miles since MAR 2019:


Previous build was too small on the frame, sold it to a neighbor who wanted a cheap carbon bike:


Current project for TT frame, trying out some new wireless shifting components, due to the complex internal cable routing among the handlebars/stem/headtube of the frame:



Larger frame size of the previous build is also in the works, internal cable routing is PITA:

What are the details on those frames? Look pretty aero. Interested in where weight and where you sourced them.

Cheers

They are generic manufactures in China, I've only purchased through eBay, but there are other direct purchase from manufacturers' websites.

I usually accumulate a decent rebate on eBay every quarter to get a good discount on the purchase of these frames.

My bicycle racing days are mostly gone, not putting out nearly as much power from my legs to need a bike that gets constantly abused with race efforts. These frames has been holding up well, comfortable ride for longer rides (40-50 miles), and stiff enough to climb up steep hills in my area (12-16% gradient).

I run 700x25c tires on them, along with the Chinese carbon wheels help with comfort level.

I haven't weigh them specifically, but they are lighter than my 19 year-old Litespeed (sub 19 lb.) that I have put over 72k miles on.


Similar frames are plenty on eBay, just need to know what you are looking for.
Currently I can only find this listing on eBay for the frame that I ride:
