Why are there still no Chinese Carbon Hybrid Frames?

Has anyone come across any Chinese Carbon Hybrid frames? I stopped looking a year or more ago...recently got back into biking, and am looking to transfer the parts of my CX bike onto a carbon hybrid frame. I see that there are much more manufacturers making full carbon hybrid bikes (Trek FX Sport 5, Specialized Sirrus, Fuji Absolute, Scott Metrix...), but i can't seem to find a generic chinese carbon clone. My current CX bike is not of much resale value now, so i'd like to breath some life back into it by doing this parts conversion. Any help in finding generic chinese carbon hybrid frames would be much appreciated!

Is a hybrid frame that different? I always assumed that the bikes were pretty much the same, it was the parts that made it a hybrid rather than a road bike. Have a look at PlanetX, I'd have thought one of their gravel bike frames would do nicely - this one perhaps?

There is no market for them. People buy hybrid bikes as a complete bike. Nobody is building up their own hybrid bike from a frame. A CX frame is going to have similar geometry, but a shorter head tube. Look for one with the right top tube length and just use a riser stem with a flat bar and you have a hybrid.

Arent the current carbon hybrids using debadged endurance frames? IIRC the carbon FX uses a Domane ftame.
