    Black and Yellow, love it!

    May I ask what a 'good deal' is, and where you sourced it from?

    From what I gather, it is a hongfu fm169 aka Avenger R8 painted to Shark Composites spec, there may be other subtle differences but none as I can see.

    I purchased it in a private sale as a complete bike, stripped it and put my own bits on. As for the price, I was very happy :wink:

    I thought it looked very familiar - nice looking bikes though, those.

    Was my birthday recently so treated myself (and the bike ) to some bits, will update pics when all is fitted. Also putting a set of aero bars on with internal routing for the Di2.
