That is interesting. Not the typical double diamond design that most frames have today. It reminds me a little bit of the first KGB frame, only without a bend in the downtube.It looks a little bit like a ladies' bike ::)

Maybe it can last 10-12 months! If you do whoppers on it though i doubt..Except if it is 2.5 kg with super thick top tube! ;D

I don't like the look so much, but at least a "flatland frame". But I really wonder why it does not have smoother connections from the tubes to the dropouts. I mean this can be done much more foot-friendly...

That's true, the dropout connections could be smoother but I think that must have been a production cost detail because on there ARESiG Custom Frames it's much better as seen here:
