I wouldn't touch anything from alibaba even if it appears more legitimate or practical than that deal.

From today's a couple news articles on the web today, including this one: "an internal investigation found that more than 2,300 sellers on the e-commerce site committed fraud, sometimes with the help of Alibaba sales staff"

I had not picked up on it before.

"Ali Baba" is usually followed by "and the Forty Thieves".

As my dad always said "If it is too good to be true, it probably is!"

I just wanted to ask as the guys in the 29er section have been buying carbon frames for a low amount and have had luck with them. Thought that if these were legit, $1500 is pretty cheap when you think about it...

Alibaba is a company based in China that sells those ebay carbon frames a few people in the roadie forums bought frames from them never heard about components
Alibaba doesn't sell anything themselves, they are simply an online market place for other companies to buy and sell goods. The biggest issue is that Alibaba doesn't do much to help verify whether these shops are actually legit
