"X" headbadge

Does anyone know of a maker whose headbadge is just the letter "X"? I've tried googling and searching BF, but those don't make for the best search terms.

I think I saw an older cross bike of theirs outside of a coffee bean. It caught my eye, bold lines but very nondescript otherwise, which I like. Maybe just one of their frames someone built up, from looking at their current offerings.

Thanks for the info!

i love the fact that from a distance my baby looks like a gray bike with black parts and youd never guess it was anything other than a kmart special.

the Nashbar cyclocross frame is flat black with a simple "X" head tube logo, too. no other graphics or decals.

i don't have a picture of mine handy, or i'd post it for comparison's sake.

That could have been what I saw. Now I wish I'd snapped a couple phone pix, or studied it more closely, I thought the badge would do the trick.

At any rate, I liked how plain yet serious it looked. Stealth, like grimace said. That seems to go for both the PX and Nashbar offerings.
