Hmmmm.....
Looks pretty close.
Water bottle mounts are different.
So is the seatpost clamp.
What happens in China stays in China.

Nope.

To my eye your headtube - downtube junction is klunky but the RR dropout on your bike is slick. Did a Google "lens" search but no obvious hits. :huh:

Hmm WS...Women's Specific frame?

I'm betting it stands for Winspace


Notice the SLC 2.0

Or something translated from Chinese....
I really appreciate all the feedback, it's quite impressive detective work.
The cost for the tooling to build something like this is big.
One thing that happens in China is that old toolsets for discontinued foreign models get a new life just down the road.
It could be a design that is no longer produced for whoever paid for the tooling.

That seatpost clamp and water jug mount are correct.

Sounds like he may keep it. Probably ok the way it is! :) Flipping the stem means removing the handlebar plate, loosening the stem clamp bolts lifting the stem up, turning it 180 degrees about its longitudinal axis, and reinstalling. It's a 7 or 10 degree rise right now, and if you flip it it will be a 7 or 10 degree negative rise stem. Makes it a more abgressive position.

Now THAT was thorough…:ogbiggrin::ogbiggrin:

I'd ride the hell out of that bike - unless you have aspirations of a competitive nature it would be just fine for a local club ride or however you want to roll. I also think you could sell it for 2k if you'd rather convert your good fortune into ski equipment. A few years ago mid-range bikes all came with Ultegra, now they've dropped down to Shimano 105 group sets to meet the price point. Ultegra disk brake group sets are rock solid.
