Well 4130, and chromo in general seems pretty standard on most decent steel frames across the board, merciers, iros, pistas etc. Steamrollers are made of 4130 and they rule. As oppose to hi ten hahaha, which is not so decent.
But in the end I think it matters a lot on the quality of manufacturing (which probably isnt too hot for this bike) and the intended purpose of the frame. Rating types of chromo steel isnt really fair, at least according to my LBS, they all just ride different. My question was more about the geometry/dropouts etc of the bike. Which I have no clue about haha.
