Think I do now- as I have just copied this from the Road Forum.

Attachment is of the Boreas Ignis---Yep the same one I have and there is a similarity.

So it looks as though I now have to start checking out the new owner of the company and who rides them

I remember seeing them in bike stores in Denmark... I really liked the Ellipse.

I remember seeing reviews of Principia that said they were preparing to expand in the USA and developing a dealer network.

I remember seeing reviews of Boreas and thinking that Principia was just changing its name - maybe to correspond with rollout in the USA.

I have never seen one in the USA, or seen a USA shop that carried them.
