    What makes you think it's a real one? Genuine question.

    What? I didn't say it wasn't. You said it looks like a real one - I'm just wondering what the differentiating features are that make you think that.

    So we can deduce that you don't know what you are talking about when you said 'it looks like a real one' (to prove me wrong, all you have to do is answer the original question).

    I started off by asking you a genuine question - because I actually don't know what the differences are - and inadvertently called you out as a fake. And you have the nerve to call me a troll. My apologies.

    What i said was "it looks like a real one to me, unless someone can prove to me otherwise".

    Now what i will say the shape of the headtube, fork, loadcell on the rear chainstays behind the crankset, the flat seatstays all point out to me that it looks a geniune f8.......

    Is that a good enough explanation or do you want to go round trolling everything i post and ask me to prove what i say to be true

    Or

    Can you just go away and leave me be?

    Let's hope the owner will be kind enough to reply and confirm your astute observations.

    Do I need your permission before I post on these forums?

    I'm sure they would tell me if there was an issue. I doubt if they take kindly to you referring to people as idiots, planks and the like either, but let's save that for another time.

    As above. I'd personally be suprised if someone would shell out for a genuine frame, and then spoil it with fake Zipps. But you never know...

    I got a Pace 27.5" build brewing. Not much to see yet while I still collect the components, but going to build it up as a SS.
