Recently, GT designed a bicycle frame with the material of thermoplastic carbon fiber!
This wicked frame represents state of the art “must-have” technology from the late 1990s! It was marketed as a “Dual-Sport” bike, which roughly translates this into one of the first Trail/All-Mountain bikes! The front triangle is made from “Thermoplastic Carbon Fiber”. It’s a highly beefy form of carbon, which I’ll leave it to an engineer to explain. GT designed the frame to climb well and descend even better, and be indestructible in the process.
