    For Sale Chinarello F12

    The term chinarello is widely used to describe the China Knock off versions so anyone in the market knows exactly what this is. Seller is 100% honest in that respect. Plus the fact it’s £900 for a F12 not £12k. From what I’ve seen they are a good copy too and some people do get caught out.

    1998 GT Backwoods frame confusion

    I did read your statement and said in my post I know this could happen. It happens in car production all the time. Whether it’s 6061 or 7005 it won’t affect the value really but it would be interesting to know. I’m not convinced though. 7005 frames are stamped too though remember. And if GT...

    1998 GT Backwoods frame confusion

    Every Backwoods or Avalanche I’ve had has always been stamped with alloy grade. If it was stamped 6061 then you would know for sure but it seems they never are stamped when folk are claiming to be something better. Lots , and I mean lots of people buy stickers to make their bikes look or appear...
