    Carbon Frame Mystery

    Good day, this fellow has a carbon frameset and says its a "Ganghzen" which I have never ever ever heard of nor can I dig up any dirt on it.
    Does anyone have any information on this?
    *I think the correct spelling is Gangzhen

    If tthe frame looked to be in good shape and the price was right I would seriously consider it.

    Seller is asking $500 including stem, all-city bars, seat and seatpost and everything is brand new. There was a fella on another forum that snapped the fork when racing at a velodrome when his chain snapped and all his pressure was put onto the bars. Scary stuff...

    Was it the same frame and fork? If not it doesn't matter.

    Anyway that's way too much for that frame. Pretty sure they're about $400 on Ebay and come with the seatpost so a good price to me would be around $200-$250 max.

    They're actually about 600 delivered. 400 is more like a reasonable price with the included extras.

    If that's the case then yeah, you're right though unless the stem, bars and saddle are suitable for the OP I'd probably try and get him to keep those items and offer $300.

    The guy says he doesn't know how to ship a bike, so I am definitely going to stay away from it. But I appreciate the advice.

    This confuses me. How does a broken chain lead to more weight on the handlebars?

    I am guessing the rider was out of seat and hammering on the pedals...?
