Thoughts on this eBay carbon gravel frame?

Notices
Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Thoughts on this eBay carbon gravel frame?

Thoughts on this eBay carbon gravel frame?

Not sure I'm in the market for a new frame, but found this on eBay recently. It's fairly pricey as eBay carbon goes, but it's available in a large frame to fit me and claims to clear 40c tires, plus several other cool features. Any thoughts on this? Anyone tried one? Just kicking around ideas...

I've seen reports of them but can't remember where, maybe on here? Anyway it's basically just an Open U.P.

Its this one too.
...and found a bunch on bidding sites too.

Its an open design frame. This is often called 'open mold', even though it isnt an open mold. One of those technically incorrect terms thats still used by most(be included) since its easy to remember due to how much its used.

Benefits- low price

drawbacks- builds can be really solid and easy or total nightmares depending on skill and expectations. I have read that sometimes the finish flakes on some in some places, that seat tubes need to be smoothed, that bottom brackets dont install easily, and that fork clearances can be...wonky.

When a fake isn't - open molds vs. the knock-offs | Bicycle Business | BikeBiz
Tales of Open Mold Purchases - Slowtwitch.com

Deng-Fu and another company that ends in -Fu are known for a lot of these frames.

You're far far braver than me! This thing has at least 3 things going against me.

1.) Carbon frame from unknown source PLUS fork
2.) Carbon frame from China PLUS fork
3.) I weigh over 120 lbs
4.) I value my life a little bit more?

It looks like it won't allow you to attach disc brakes, if that is something you want.

I agree, looks extrremely similar. But, $2900 for Open U.P.... That's just crazy money for a frameset!

That looks fine. Using QR axles instead of thru is a benefit to me also as it will fit existing wheelsets... But, I'm not finding this frame on the Ridley website? Which frame is it and where sold?

No, look closer, it has caliper mounts. Definitely something I like when roads are a bit wet.

That is a 2017 Ridley X-Night Disc frame set from Competitive Cyclist. I just purchased one just because I couldn't pass up such a great deal. The sizes are getting limited so hurry.

Bummer, they top out at a 58c frame which is too small for comfort.

One of the things that attracted be to the eBay part was the XL's 609/398 stack/reach.

Oh, and frames made in China arent inherently bad just because they are made in China. Thats absurd. I work on a couple dozen bikes each year with frames made in China and they are all perfectly servicable. Straight, strong, and reliable.
I personally prefer Taiwan because of all the geopolitical reasons, but saying Taiwan is better than China for frames is a generalization without merit.

No one is not better than the other straight up, but who has had pretty much impeccable quality on their craftsmanship? Also who has their quality of craftsmanship scattered through the whole range of craftsmanship? I would argue that it's pretty much still that way!

Everyone likes to dance around this issue of poor craftsmanship from China. Look at the example I provided. What, I'm the first one that ever inquired about where the frames are made with that rep? Yeah I guess it's like knowing about how sausages are created huh? It's better off not being discussed.

I'm thinking the rep uses "Looks like this frame is made in Asia" cause people suck this stuff up! That's like saying your item was made in the Americas. It's roughly the same land mass with a quarter of the people of Asia. You're going to be happy with "Looks like this frame is made in Asia"? Lets apply ourselves people.

1- bless your heart was in response to your condescending attitude and words directed towards a random company salesperson who is not part of manufacturing or logistics.

2- Yes i would agree that typically a frame from Taiwan will be well made and finished while a frame from China may or may not be well made and finished. Though I would add that frames are made to meet a pricepoint. So then claiming the frames are worse coming from one place when that place purposely makes frames to meet a lower pricepoint is...disingenuous.

3- I am not dancing around anything by saying frames from China arent inherently worse just because they come from China. I am stating actual observations based on experience. I help maintain a fleet of bikes whose frames were made in China and as stated, they are perfectly fine in terms of quality and finish.
I have assembled 4 Diamondback/Raleigh bikes for friends in the last year and all came from China. Rim brake frames, disc brake thru axle frames, carbon forks, aluminum forks- the 4 bikes varied in price and frame level. All were easy to set up and came mostly assembled(and assembled well). All are being used 1-2x/week during riding season here without issue. Claris, Sora, and 105 drivetrains- the pricepoint didnt matter- frames were straight and well finished.

4- Like most everything in manufacturing, where something made is important. You are using a seriously broad brush to state your opinion by citing two countries. I am going granular and saying the specific manufacturer is whats important.
Taiwan manufacturers have plants in China. Major heritage brands like Trek, Giant, Specialized, etc have frames built in both Taiwan and China.
The common theme is that whats important is the specific facility and not the country.

I have the Workswell 125 which appears to be the same frame. I've got ~400 miles on it so far (including some rough terrain on the DK200) and it has been great. The seatpost clamp design is a little weird. It uses a little compression plug that is recessed into the top tube and sits in front of the seatpost. In my mind, it seems like a better design than the standard collar that is used on most bikes since it distributes the pressure across a wider section of the seatpost.

Here's a really bad pic - please forgive the dirt that I have yet to clean up after the DK
