Is anyone familiar with Alchemy Bicycle Company in Austin

I am considering a custom steel(or possibly titanium) frame from Alchemy and was wondering if anyone had any experience with them. I spoke to the owner, James Flatman, and he articulated his craft and passion for frame building really well. Just wondering what "the pros" here know.

thanks in advance

I'll second that and add that this was the subject of a thread here a few months ago...more positive opinions there.

I just searched too...didn't find it. I'm thinking it might have been on a different forum, oops.
Either way, James makes great bikes and you won't be disappointed.
