Years ago some MTB manufacturer used Beryllium (small percentage) in an alloy frame. Could have been gary fisher.?? or perhaps someone else. this must have been mid 1990's I think..It was displayed at a trade fair and was in a magazine article covering the event.

I remember the dutch brand Van Tuyl used Beryllium in an alloy frame too. Probably 6 years ago or so.
Whow! That's a pretty damn nice garage door!
