I answered on the other post.
In 1996-1999, Pascal Blanc, a french welder worked on elasticity of steel : how to draw and make a fram stiffy for riding but confortable enough for not using suspension.
and he created " Explosiv' ". All frame were hand made and filled brazed ith good quality cromo steel. HE made some trial bike too.

Some other pictures there and there
:wink:

Wow, I like that a lot. Good job I didn't see that.

I'm looking forward to watching the build.

Looks like it was sold by Ben at Kinetic so probably fairly nice!
