I remember a test on these from MBi in about 1994.


Was that not the test where Tim Gould rode it?

IMHO proto types do not carry the value of well known "cult" bikes such as Kona CIndercone, Hei Hei's, Monster Fats, early StumpJumpers, Vit T's, Trek Carbon Y's etc., these are valued because of their pleasure of ride quality and the success they achieved, as much as anything. Interesting though they are, I would have thought it would have been better off in a cycling or technology museum?

It was put into production though I think. If I recall the frame was designed to offer some degree of vertical flex in the rear stays whilst also being stif torsioanlly, bit like a softtail. The review I remember raved about it.
