Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

UCI frame logo

My UCI frame logo doesn't seem right... I thought the color order was blue, red, black , yellow, green.
The one on my frame starts with red, then blue, black, yellow, green. Also, its painted on. Not a sticker..

Was the bike purchased from a reputable retailer? Something like that could be a sign of a counterfeit frame...

Maybe it's a counterfeit frame.

I bought it second hand on face book marketplace. I'm starting to think its a counterfeit frame... I'm fairly new to road cycling and was excited to get my first carbon bike. Thought I could get a deal buying used.. lesson learned I guess..

I think you're in real danger of having all of your UCI medals taken off you just by having that abomination in your house.

Sure, maybe it’s counterfeit. But that color swap almost seems deliberate.

When a deal seems too be good to be true, it is usually because it is too good to be true.

Counterfeit what? Is there a recognizable brand name on the frame? Is someone is selling knock-offs of a reputable brand, that brand might want to know about it.

His other thread says ”Aeroad”, so I’m gonna guess Canyon.
