her email is sales10@workswellbikes.com.cn

Also note, they do not confirm shipment! mine took about 3 weeks, then yesterday it arrived at my office. It was packaged thoroughly and wrapped in foam neatly. I have no complaints with the frame on initial inspection. 



Thank you! Let us see the photos of your complete bike when it will be ready!

I heard from Chris today (sales05), and apparently there is a strike at the painting company and they've also recently moved premises. He says there is about a two week delay on any paint work.

My bike has been built up and I love it for the ride.  650b 47mm Byway tires  at 40 PSI provide a very soft, stable ride.  I've set them up with tubeless and my rear wheel is still not sealing properly but I'll squirt some more Orange Seal in there later and I think that should fix it.  Overall I think the finishing quality of the frame is junk and I wouldn't buy another product from Workswell.  

Here's what I'm talking about.

The grommet and the grommet hole look like garbage. 

Some peculiarities, the rear axle is quite a bit longer in thread than a regular Shimano e-thru.  If you want to buy fancy aftermarket axles, make sure you find out what the length is first.  When I ordered my bike, I failed to specify I wanted to wire it with di2 and Workswell neglected to send me the proper grommet.  After emailing them the grommet arrived 2 weeks later.  

By the way I can't find my scale but if I had to guess the weight, it's about 18lbs.

I finally got around to totaling up my build cost.

OK, just posted some pics of my build. There is a little dust on the frame (a good thing!) 
I LOVE the ride! super smooth. I did not have any issues with the frame quality, maybe I just got lucky...
XT Brakes and Shifters, 11-42 cassette. Ultegra cranks. 
XTR Rear Hub (these are a great value compared to the boutique hubs INMHO) Hope RS4 Front hub with Stans Arch 650B rims and Terrene Elwood 47C Tires (roll great btw)
Jones Bars with Ergon cork grips.
I wanted this to be a commuter/ultralight tourer. It feels perfect size wise. It's the 58CM. I am 6'2, and it is a great fit. 
I'll post a longer term review later, but right now I am very impressed with how this rides.

Nice bike!  I love my bike but for the 11-34 gearing and the 650b 47mm wheels.  I think I could go with any chinese carbon frame with the same configuration and be just as happy.  

I bought some 63mm velo orange fenders and I will eventually follow up with some pictures (when i get around to mounting them).
