Been out of the loop for a while and im buying a new bike(standard sta-500)

IM getting the rest of the details, but some guy on Craigslist has a custom build using a Standard STA-500 frameset for $350(complete bike)

anyone have any experience with the frame, ive heard its a little heavier than most Standard frames, but by how much?
