This is my FM015 from the FlyBike factory, sourced through Mina at DengFu distributors direct in China. It's a 51cm Frame with a 120mm stem and fits me at 5'7" with a 29" inseam, perfectly.

It's been built with Ultegra 6600 throughout, 2010 Aksiums with Conti GP4000S clinchers make up my wheels for now, but I'm hoping for a set of 50mm tubs from Yishun in the future. The bars and stem are FSA and the bar wrap is my first ever (how did I do?).

I built it for crits and circuit racing but it's comfy enough for longer races and Sportives I think. It joins a 2010 Kona Jake the Snake which serves as my cyclocross, commuter and winter bike.

Total cost to build was around 700 quid. Frame, fork, headset and spare hanger came to 290 quid delivered. Would I buy another bike direct from China? ABSOLUTELY!

    Nice write up. That frame looks very familiar, especially the area around the top of the seat stays - just trying to think where I've seen it...

    Well a lot of people have commented on the likeness of the Cube Litening throughout the design. It's basically identical.

    Nice pics. I'm torn between one of these and a complete Ribble bike . . . . Was the groupset second hand?

    Yup I admit it was a bit of a bargain. 185 quid for Ultegra 6600 STIs, front and rear mechs, chain, pedals, spare plastic beds for the pedals, barely used 6600 cassette and a more worn 5500 105 cassette picked up from the STW classifieds.

    Steffano seems to be the guy to go through. http://www.yishunstefano.com/
