    Have you heard of Neuvation Cycling

    Has anyone heard of Neuvation Cycling? There is a great deal on their cross frame.
    http://www.neuvationcycling.com/FCX100Framesets.html

    And the deal includes both a carbon fork and a carbon seat post. From the pictures they have, the weld seem much better than most aluminum frames I have seen around. What do you think?

    No, but If you order enough of anything, at Taipei trade shows for example,
    they will put any name the customer wants on it.
    That is the nature of contract manufacturing, these days,
    and CAD designs move as easily as this note.

    Did you look at the welds? Which coast are you by? I miss Oregon, especially Canon Beach.

    Check out the Road Cycling forum here. Neuvation is well spoken of. Many people race their equipment...because it's affordable and most of us aren't sponsored.

    Neuvation makes pretty good bang for the buck wheels too.

    Not sure of your point. Are you demonstrating the fact that you can get generic frames that are knock offs or are you actually making a recommendation?

    No matter, I have two considerations. The first is convincing my wife that I need a new bike and second I would be using the new bike for commuting and racing. There is no way I would get a carbon frame since I often times have to shove my bike under the bus and they some times pile one on top of another. Also I don't think that was a cross frame but a road frame.

    I think this guy is trying to relate neuvation bikes with the overseas scams that involve knock offs or are complete bogus.

    As for Neuvation, I have a pair of wheels and know a few racers who race the actual bikes. I am very happy with the carbon tubular wheels and the guy that runs the show (John) is a stand up guy and will happily and quickly answer questions and problems.... they were kind enough to mail me out a new skewer when I lost one warming up on a trainer.

    Neuvation has a pretty solid track record. I have a pair of their wheels, 6,000 miles no problems. Google neuvation and you will find a lot of reviews. There is even a review on roadbikereview.com in the forums of the neuvation fcx.

    yes yes and yes

    Carbon is inexpensive in China Neuvation seems to be fine cool videos and a grandfatherly explanation of how the "big" bike companies have teams to sponsor(so does he) and then have to charge more for racing development advertising... but then again Carbon has a lifespan which is a lot less that I am comfortable buying as most of my bikes are 40ish years old... My trek carbon fiber Mtn Bike from the nineties went the way of the dodo bird after I splintered the chainstay on a tree rock cliff fall rock, ouch...hard to repair carbon with my skillset but had that been a piece of steel I would have been ablt to replace a bent tube...
    I was saying do a lot of homework and buy your bike with the mindset of if it breaks can I fix it or is there a LBS that can.

    I apologize for being terse but my initial remark was to provoke thinking not to be insulting or unclear which I realize I was being unclear.

    Thanks all for your input. I found an ebay auction for the bike that turned out to be a great deal ... for somebody else. I never bid on it, although I would have liked to have after everything great that was posted here. And although no one talked about the welds, they looked beautiful to me. When it came down to it, my wife talked me out of it. She keeps me from buying a million bikes and I keep her from having a million dogs. Compromise.
