Interesting blog post about this frame. This guy's quest for a mixte sounds very similar to mine.
He posts here, under the name Robatsu. Initially, I made a mistake and wrote that origin 8 frame off as a cheapo taking advantage of a fad. After reading the blog post and looking at the frame more closely, it does seem pretty impressive. To me the threadless headset isn't a bad thing at all, but it's worth noting if you expected to use a classic quill stem.
