Good afternoon all, long time no see!

I’m looking to pic a few brains here and see if anyone can help me identify this recent purchase.

It was listed on eBay as an Easton Elite frame, but from my understanding that’s the type of tubing used. Or is it?!!!!

I’m leaning towards thinking it’s some variety of Manitou HT but a fair bit of research hasn’t identified it yet.

Unfortunately I can’t post more pics as it hasn’t arrived yet.

Any ideas?

Many thanks in advance

These were also imported by companies like South West Spares etc. They didn't come with a name on them unless the purchasing store chose to brand them. Some of the early shipments did come with a large black Easton decals for the frame though.

I hope thats of some help.

Frame arrived today and to be fair it’s a nice from.
Obviously needs a lot of TLC, which it’ll get.

One thing I did notice was the vague outline of where a logo had been on the headstock and also seat stays.

It’s really hard to get a good photo but I’ve tried my best.

Does anyone recognise the logo? Looks like “R” or similar.
