More enlightenment needed on OEM carbon frames

I this post continues  to post opportunities for many readers and followers to continue enjoying their biking by way of cheap affordable carbon frame dream bikes, many are  still not sold nor convinced about the efficacy of carbon bike frames made in Taiwan or China.  The post does not invite buyers for the picturesof the bikes so posted.  It is for them to make a choice

We still talk about fakes and orig.

It was earlier posted that 95% of bikes world wide are made in China and Taiwan. Even high end bikes.   - name it:  Colnago, Bianchi, Pinarello, S works etc are made in China and Taiwan.  These two countries own the equipment and technology to make top end carbon frames (now T1100) for every select buyers worldwide.   They now have their own brands:  Seraph, Toseek. Rockbros

When a famous local store in posh Pasig district had a sale of European bikes, the bikes that were delivered to my friends had stickers that said these R...bikes are made in China.  Is then a fake? Did the store get fake bikes from China and delivered them as orig

The Pinarello that I saw at the local store had a sticker that says it is Made In Italy?   Is it orig?

Also it is not about  bikes:  org or legit;   It is about your knees and fitness.  Two Sundays ago, I rode alongside a biker who was on "Orig" Madone and hated every bit of the  Venge Vias I was riding on (an OEM)  He arrived five minutes  later at the lugawan.

Many are now convinced that "Orig" legit bikes are really made  in Taiwan and/or China.  Search for You Tube video about Chinarello bikes and even carbon wheel set made in China.  Take note that  high tech companies like FSA and SRAM have their HQ in Taiwan.

Zipp, the leading edge company in carbon wheelset is now  owned by SRAM based in Taiwan.  Are SRAM or Zipp fake brands.  That they are made in Taiwan does not prevent any  one to make a carbon copy of a carbon item.

More and more discriminating elite bike buyers now elect to buy OEM bikes.  For the price of one they could have 3 or more bikes.... (Di pa nakokopya GS.  Soon makokopya na din yan)  Lahat ng technology nakokopya.   Name these professionals:   doctors, engineers, govt officials, OFW are now electing to go OEM.   Many posts made by this post gather several k at a time.

If you go to AWST bikes site, AlieExpress or DH gate, you will find out many China Taiwan branded carbon frames come with two year warranty.  So OEM talaga.  Many pundits will miss the boat and the opportunity from Ivory legalistic mindset.

May mga nasty unenlightened comments pa rin.  The new understanding about worldwide manufacturing and marketing does not seem to register.  May be those who bought the orig envy those who got same stuff at 1/5 the price.   And regret it... And could only afford to destroy the OEM as a vengeance....

Does owning a pricey bike causes one to ride faster and harder?

Does owning a new carbon fiber bike make one ride faster because of psychological (yabang) reasons or because the bike really rides faster?  I wonder

But ever since I got this S works super bikes, I noticed that I often am tired and had to spend a great deal of time sleeping (fatigued or part of growing old)  I noticed too that I ride faster and harder.

1.  In the bike ride yesterday, though my kapadyak had a carbon frame bike (which I sold to  him) en route to the blessing, I still was ahead of him (he is much younger than me) and even overtook him after I stopped /waited for him.

2.  Today, a MTB overtook me and we took turns in overtaking each other:   at Montevideo, at Callahan, and Namay.   He must be only 20+.  That was hard riding.  Was it because the Venge Vias is a fast bike, or pride egged me on to get ahead of him?

What do you think?
