More Info:
Bought this brand new from a continental team guy for a steal. Frame is quite heavy (2,9kg for frame set including fork, headset and seat post). Super stiff and sturdy though, a reliable race bike for years to come. Has some kind of aluminum/steel insert in the head tube. Huge bottom bracket area, nice long drop outs. Handling is sharp but still fine to handle at lower speeds. This bike shows it's true characteristics when going faster than 40 km/h. Was skeptical at first because I really liked my old frame set but I'm more than happy now.

No, not really.
Try to look out for the azzurri sprint, conor wcs and there was another company who did this frame with a nice matte black paint scheme and subtle yellow and white decals.
ALso you can try to write csk an e-mail, as they are also a shop they should be able to sell it directly.

If you buy from csk directly I don't think there is anything to worry about.
If I wouldn't have gotten this for a steal I would have bought a dolan.

Axman is actually the company producing the frame and also selling it under their brand name.

i wrote to axman about their frame asked about size, colour and Price and then he replied saying i need your precise location so i can tell you the Price (with shipment) and he replied to nothing i asked about and he was using gmail so i dont recommend them but i am about to write to mbk i have done some research and found out that they are french but ship from china so a bit better i think

I like the paint job the python has, looks classy.

I changed some parts and have new wheels, so I'll update pics sometime soon.
