Very nice Chris

Here is the Peugeot:

I do know the Peugeot's tubing is by Easton ...so probably the Reflex' too. I read on yours the downtube is out carbon. Only the downtube?

Wasn't reflex part of the Easton company?

From MTBR:


Reflex was in fact a division of Easton. The Reflex bikes were the first to use Easton's Taperwall tubing, althopugh Yeti makes that claim for their bikes.
Easton Sold Reflex to Look, which continued to sell the bikes for a couple of years more in Europe after they quit here.

I do believe that selling to Look was to resolve a conflict-of-interest issue- Easton couldn't really be in a position to compete with their customers (other bike companies), now could they?

The Look connection makes sense when you combine the fact that the Peugeot team had close connections with Look in the 90s and their bikes are Reflex ones

Gawd, I bloody lusted after that pink anodised one in my lbs back in 1988. I'd have sold a kidney I reckon.

Very nice Chris.
