Bontrager prototype full suspension frame
But Bontrager did also experiment with different materials and setups even after shutting down the frame production at Trek. I don't know if this frame is pre or post Trek (I suspect post), but it is an interesting concept trying to reduce the amount of pivots by using a flexible board over the bottom bracket (same principle as in the Slingshot frame I think). Maybe there was a reason this frame never showed up with a Bontrager (or Trek or Gary Fisher label).
