i think the graphics and decals are what gives it the rough appearance. they look more like bumper stickers that some one made at home. but from reading, it sounds as if a lot of work has gone into these frames. are they known to be problematic? i noticed the UK one is very cheap still. overall, i'm finding it to be a rather intriguing.
