not sure what that would be, don't remember any looking like old pro-flexes. Most full sus bikes made by Specialized have been called FSR. Do a search on here to see if you find a pic of what you saw.

He probalbly means the Ground Control bikes... a bit cheaper version of the FSR and the way shock was mounted on those bikes looked a bit like ProFlex' frames.

Best example I could find:

At least, I always found them to look a bit cheap. Somewhat like a rockhopper version of the FSR :?: :oops:

I had forgotten about the Ground Control!

Weren't they mostly red at the front with a yellow rear end?

I'm sure they re-used the Ground Control name for the last of the Horst design in about 1997 or so.

They look a very nice, simple, straight forward design.
