    1990 Reflex Limited

Reflex appears to have been the retail side of Easton?  The bikes appear similar to the Raleigh bikes of that era but are definitely not identical.  Jeff Lindsay, of Mountain Goat Cycles, drew up the original geometry for the Reflex line.  The anodized finish is a nice touch and the screwed and glued construction is interesting.   From what we have found, it appears as if the bikes only existed for a couple of years before being discontinued.  There are some advertisements from Look and Peugeot that feature an identical frame so Easton may have sold the rights to the frame.  That would make some sense since it would have been difficult for Easton to "compete" against there tubing customers.
