Didn't Pace make magnesium framed mountain bikes back in the 90's?

So hurry up with the review already! And maybe some background info on why magnesium - for all the benefits they extol - has so far failed to gain any traction; is there a fly in the ointment.

When I pulled it out of the box it was surprising how light it was, before I realised it was magnesium. For any other benefits though, you'll have to hang on for the full review!

Looks like an interesting bike, does the frame material add up to any noticeable benefits?
