  1. idk if it’s cheap or good but I do know i wouldn’t mind paying more for American made!

    I’m really enjoying my generic ebay carbon HT frame. I built it up myself, with stuff I had and a few purchases. What I got for what I ended up spending is awesome. And the bike is a rocket ship on the right trails.

  3. Need a update on this build

  4. The warranty from China won’t cover your injuries when the frame cracks during a ride.

  5. So you have a Scott Spark knockoff, which is awesome. The main issues: 1. What’s your recourse when the frame fails? With that 2 year warranty, you need to be able to contact the manufacturer and have them be responsive. If you’re riding the piss out of an XC race bike, you’re going to break it at some point, that’s just the price of doing business. 2. It’s heavy.

    Go to Ali Express and search for "TWITTER 700C Carbon Frame Road Bike"
    I am currently building my stealth UD carbon version up and I have to say that the quality of this frame when compared to many others I have owned, is stunning both inside and out!
    My favourite road bike to date was a Rose CRS and although a stunning bike, when you looked inside the tubes, my god, it was terrible!
    Tech has moved on since then however and this Twitter frame shows just how much the Chinese have upped their game.
    This frame is now available for something like £450 + £60 shipping.
    You get the frame, fork, headset, seatpost and one piece bars & stem!

  7. on his next vid it falls to bits

    It seems a little expensive

  9. Lmfao “cheap” you can get old stock specialized yeti or ibis new frames on eBay for a damn $1000 or even get a slightly used frame.. that you know has been tested and is by reputable company. If this was like $150/200 I’d say “cheap” but $1000 def not.

    I heard from a Brand called Tryfox witch copied 1:1 the Scott Spark. 🙁

  11. I thought it says "TRIEDX" LOL

  12. Take a shot every time he says cheap Chinese frame

  13. Just came from a video of a guy snapping his femur from this frame when the tail section broke in half on both sides

  14. you get what you pay for

  15. Send it, with that frame

  16. so many videos spending the entire session talking about the frame but but none of them actually build them and test ride. probably no confidence in riding them.

    Yeah, how bad can it be?
    That bad.

  18. Cheap? 🤦‍♂️ Define your views and thoughts of "Cheap" is this "cheap" frame mean that the build quality is shitty or decent? I see "cheap as like the Dollar store paper towels versus your Walmart brand which is "cheap" too but slightly better quality. Just saying

  19. $999 “cheap” Chinese bike frame…you sound like my teenager son…

    Thanks. Good job.

  21. Top d+ 😍😍

  22. Get a machete and chop it to pieces..😃😃😃🍗


    No unless you want broken leg

  24. Did you ever build this up?

  25. £500 aint cheap

  26. Chinese stolen technology has been a global issue, I do not support.

  27. Doesn’t matter Chinese or not. Carbon is total garbage. High price high risk. Its fragile. If stress the wrong way or even a rock hitting your frame. Say good bye to your wallet cause your getting a new bike. Thats the ultimate goal of these capitalist evil companies. Keep carbon for the roadies. Ain’t made for mtb

  28. Cheap Chinese frame, Cheap Chinese frame, Cheap Chinese frame, Cheap Chinese frame,
    Cheap Chinese frame, Cheap Chinese frame,
    Cheap Chinese frame, Cheap Chinese frame,
    Cheap Chinese frame, Cheap Chinese frame,

  29. I paid $3000 usd for carbon frame bike from Hung Fu Sports Equipment Co. Ltd. The bike came first day with damages. Paint came off and carbon fibres exposed. Jenny and Eric denied the responsibility and told me to accept the bike. I will not buy from China again. Very dishonest Chinese merchants in China.

  30. You should add the medical bills to that frame price tag.

  31. When is the follow up video going to drop you think?

  32. Have you ever heard about Lexon brand frame? Chinese too

  33. chad formentera April 18, 2021 @ 12:30 am

    Watch this dudes video breaking his leg after 2 feet jump in a Chinese carbon.

  34. Did this build ever get complete? Link?

  35. Build it and test it, have been waiting for this.

  36. photogenic works April 18, 2021 @ 12:33 am


  37. Until today, cant find any vid on this build

  38. Benjamin Stokes April 18, 2021 @ 12:34 am

    If they sent you a frame for free, it is not Legit. They could easily have inspected it for problems before sending it. One of the biggest problems with anything cheap is not so much that they are all bad, but maybe some will have defects. A cheap company will simply sell them in the mix, where as a high end bicycle will have someone in quality control to remove the frames that are not perfect.

  39. Do we assume this broke the first time you took it out on the trail since it disappeared without trace?

  40. The thing with these carbon frames from China, is that the lighter you weigh the less chance that thing is going to break on you. If you’re some tiny child like a guy that has a small frame and maybe weighs 140 pounds, you will probably be OK.

    Only idiots buy stuff like this

  42. TOSCANO PLASTER April 18, 2021 @ 12:40 am

    $1299.00 are you kidding ? I can get a full carbon bike out of china fir $1500 USD

  43. Do not buy these frames or components…you will end up hospital.

  44. Looking and actually being well made can and often are two different things! Loving the channel. cheers.

  45. There are at least 4 guys on youtube that bought this frame but no one of them has posted a video of them riding it or of them reviewing the ride on it. Weird!

  46. Alpha de Nazareth April 18, 2021 @ 12:44 am

    Is the result ready yet??? Still waiting

  47. Triadii Official April 18, 2021 @ 12:47 am

    too good to be true. You’re probably going to break a leg when you least suspect, riding this.

  48. The same carbon, but the carbon finish inside the frame is a mess, so it cannot withstand a big impact Chinese carbon frame !!
