Cypress (not Giant) frames?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Cypress (not Giant) frames?

Hi All -
In searching I've seen this question asked before, but no one was able to answer it. I'm hoping that now that some time has passed maybe someone will.

There is a local company here in Vancouver BC called 'Cypress' that makes frames (http://www.gwbicycle.com/GWBicycle/index.htm). This isn't the same as the Cypress made by Giant.

There are a few local stores that seem to like them - including La Bicicletta. I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with them. If they are good then I wouldn't mind supporting a local company, but I haven't been able to find any information on them either way.

Anyone out there even heard of them?

Thanks!
