Anyone ever hear/have info on Magnesium Litech Frames?crewpsu

Hello everyone,
I' just getting into road biking and am currently looking to build myself a bike. I came across an ad in the classifieds section of this web site for a frame from a company called Magnesium Litech. Its supposed to be a magnesium frame (94%magnesium, 6% alloy) and seems to be sold from the company that makes it. It says its 2.60 lbs and is selling for $500

Has anyone ever heard of this company? Are they good frames? Is the reason its cheap just because the comapny has no name recognition?

I'm also looking at a Look KG131 carbon fiber frame. Would this be the better frame?

Thanks for your time and input in advance.

turned up a website address for them, but the address was not able to be located. Perhaps they have not finished it yet. Anyway, the URL is: http://www.mglitech.com/

I could copy the description that was presented:

"Company overview Magnesium Litech Kft. is a new bicycle frame manufacturer who has entered the market with new material, magnesium. Based in Budapest, Hungary, with manufacturing facilities in Russia,"

FWIW

I have two Look frames. One is carbon and the other is Columbus steel. I'm very pleased with both. I don't have the kg131 so I cannot speak specifically on this frame.
