they also showed a prototype full sus frame at bike 95 (iirc) - was all box sectiony, v similar to the pace, but had carbon bits on it, definitely badged as X-Lite.

Those ti frames were around for a while too, i remember them being pretty similar to a russian brand (red something?)

hello, this is from the 1997 catalogue, i think they were £700 as a frame kit, so they were very cheap really...stem/seatpost/seatclamp was nearly £200 on its own.
could be wrong, as it does seem too cheap.

That's how I remember it, too: Full susser with box-section frame.
I think it turned out to be vapor-ware, though. Or maybe just a prototype/ test bed for other kit.
