Anyone have any experience with either one of these frames?

I've just ordered one. I'll follow up again once I get it, should be the end of December. In my research I found the exact same frame is used by a number of western resellers, retailing at 2-3 times the price.

So far, I've found Dengfu to be surprisingly communicative and pleasant to work with. They made some tweaks to the components for whatever reasons, upgraded the rear shock to a RS Deluxe.

With that all said, I'm not walking into this blind. I used paypal with an Amex card. I've not had a lot of fun in the past making claims through paypal but vendors are usually shit scared if you mention contacting them, they don't want to get shut down. Amex on the other hand will refund a claim in days with the right paperwork.

My biggest concern next is the shipping, I'm pretty sure the packaging is going to be sub-standard. I went with sea, it was another $150 for air and I'm not in a rush. This is the build out I went with

I think this build uses that frame. Looks a bit like the Luna X1 on steroids.

HI "Radiorental", "EDIT SORRY I HAVE DELETED SOME STUFF I POSTED IN THIS POST AS I JUST REALIZED YOU ARE GETTING THE M620 NOT THE M600 DRIVE"

I hope with the 4" x 26" tires you still get some how a decent chain line, I am sure Dengfu has this worked out but keep us posted.
Good luck with it, I am sure you will enjoy this new M600 drive.

Also, if I can suggest that you check all your pivots that the M screws and nuts are torqued properly. My bike from Dengfu came with impropper torque settings and if things wiggle loose threads can get messed up and pieces lost. Also they cheap out on crappy tubes (or did so on my bike) so I would put decent tubes in or convert to tubless if you can.

All the best Radiorental.......wayne

Any news on the bike?
I am keeping eye on the thread, i have thought about ordering the same frame set, possibly with battery and motor, depends on the price and the quality of battery. I`d personally would order other parts from Europe (no custom fees). I would go with Bluto fork, and DT Swiss BR 2250 wheels with Schwalbe rubber. Should save few kilos as well. Shame that there is no fat bike frame set for Bafang m600 motor, wich imho is powerful enough, it would save few good kilos.
