Looks lovely. Is the price realistic?

Bloody hell, I'm going to peel the mtrax stickers off mine and list it as an xlite, if that's what the name is worth :)

Its not unreasonable for ebay imo. Seen F&F separate on here for £350 each.

Seems a fair price for frame and forks.

The forks fetch good money and a lot of people really rate the ride of the frames. Personally i always found them a bit stiff, good for racing i should imagine as they are very quick.

Do people not realise that these are just Raleigh made frames with no graphics, that were shipped out and then badged up by xlite as their own products lol

I bought a full mtrax 400 elite with lx/xt and a mint pair of Judy sl's for less than some have seen the xlite frames sell for :D

I think a lot do yes, but i think the x lite name adds to it a bit.

A lot of things are like it nowadays, and in the past come to think of it. Not just bikes, but cars are often other makes/models underneath for example, just rebadged.

Owned Raleigh and a Dyna Tech badged ones but never an X Lite one. Maybe it would have been faster still with X Lite decals :lol:

Very nice package! Price is a tad strong perhaps, but try finding both the X-Lite branded frame and the matching Trimnell fork as a package :D

FWIW the frames do indeed ride very nicely. I have a later one which has been destickered (Branded M-Trax 450 Elite I think). It's been lovingly thrashed and is sat waiting for a rebuild! The later ones benefit from losing the rear canti brake hanger which looks a bit off in my opinion..
