I love LOVE my "vintage" '94 Bontrager Race hardtail MTB. But when it dies, I'm going to get me one of these...
Enter COTIC from the UK. Making steel and Ti hardtail MTBs that look damn familiar. Like a Bonty but with modern attributes (9/8" headtubes, longer TTs, disk brake mounts, and designed for 100-130mm travel forks)!
Compare their steel Soul frame with a Bontrager Race/Racelite, also check their Ti Soda against a Ti Lite :
* Wishbone rear seatstays. Check!
* Frame gussets. Check!
* 71/74 angles. Check!
Not a direct copy, but familiar enough to make me want one!
