    WINDSPEED LONGRIDER / 26" Classic Touring 4130 Chromoly Frame Set

    Any body using one, or familiar with it? The local bs is quoting tempting price, but I'm a little hesitant. Nothing is said about the fork, and I wonder if it's 4130 Chromoly, or just plain high tensile steel. Any light on it would be much appreciated.

    Did you google this thing? 99% of the hits are from overseas !! Half the links are in a foreign language. What bike shop has one? There are a ton of photos, mostly touring. Finally it appears to be 4130.

    With the username of "wheelinthai" and a post made previously about a Thai touring company, I'm guessing the OP is based in Thailand. And "overseas" to where? Remember that this is an international forum, not just a US based forum.

    I stand corrected. I didn't even consider that fact. I was soooo shocked when I googled it. I have never seen so many foreign
    languages. Foreign meaning not english.

    I'm a Thai, living in Thailand. The frame is from China, and the frame is chromoly. I've seen many bikes from China with chromoly frame, but with hi-tensile fork. hence my skepticism. The price is tempting, and I'd like to know more about the ride quality, stiffness of the frame etc.
    BTW the frame is sold in Thailand, through small dealer.
