I bought one to build a racks-n-fenders around town/bad weather bike but haven't gathered all the parts yet. I think it's a good frame for the money (good alignment, the welds and paint are perfect) and the reviews are positive.
The matching carbon fork is $129 but Nashbar always has sales of 20-25% off (today is 23% off) so you can get both pieces for around $250.
"When you know absolutely nothing, anyone who knows 1% more than nothing sounds like an expert."
I kept my eye out for about 9 months before I found one I liked at a good price. If you can wait and you live in an area with a fair amount of cyclists, eventually something will probably show up - just takes time.
