    anyone knows sth about the Shamann alpha tubing?

    it's a Sunn bicycles' frame, and the frame's name is familiar with the Trek's alpha aluminium
    and it seems very light too, so is there anyone knows sth about this frame? is it a safe frame?

    I have the Shamann S1 and I love it. It's light but still gives me confidence on the singletracks and small jumps. Climbs really well. The frame has some strange design choices but it works great anyway.
    Only small problem is the paint work in the bottom bracket bolting area - it's virtually unnoticeable and has no adverse effect, but the surface preparation and paint application was less than perfect and paint is now peeling in a very small area. It's a hidden area so I wouldn't worry about it.
    All in all I am very happy with the frame and bike.
