Kalavinka Question

I know there have been threads about Kalavinka before, but my question is slightly different.
I am thinking about ordering a custom frame from Kalavinka.
While they are known primarily for their track frames, which is why I am posting here, I am thinking about ordering a road frame.
The quote I got for the frame I want is about $1,800. I know there are people on here who have dealt with the shop and getting a custom frame. How do people who have Kalavinkas like them? Is it really the right builder to go with if I want a custom road frame or is their expertise so limited to the track that is getting a road frame from them logical?

Feel free to PM about this if you have any insight.

Thanks and apoligies for the slightly off-topic post.

I'm sure that they make a lot of road frames too. I've seen plenty on their website. But... have you considered Yamaguchi?
