nabiis Alchemy Frame....

Anyone have any experience with this frame? It looks fantastic built up imo, and depending on the quality of the frame the price isnt too bad, $490.





Was thinking of pairing it with a wound up fork.

Is there any more info available on this frame? $490 for a double-butted 4130 frame set seems steep. I think it does look kind of cool, though.

Price isn't to far off compared to a steamroller or all city.

You can get a Steamroller for $100 less, which is pretty significant in this price range.
