Unless another company has also started/been doing it before, it'll be made by a company called Delta7.

They also do a full CF version called the Arantrix, so even the junctions are CF. The lattice construction is said to be stronger and stiffer for the same amount of material. It's also apparently more "crash resistant" than tubes but I doubt they mean over the lard ass downtubes seen on our trial bikes! Can't see a downtube like that lasting long at all in trials... Top tubes and seat stays however...

$7000 though, as you can imagine there's a lot of work in putting one together.

I've seen a picture of a road bike like that similar except the whole frame made out of that wire stuff. It was in a road magazine, must be mega light.

can imagine its very stiff and aerodynamic for racing

That one's slightly different, uses loads and loads of strands rather than IsoTruss which is all tubes. The one you're thinking of is the one with 3 stays right? Can't quite remember.

Can't imagine the aerodynamics are anything special at all. It's not really designed with just racing in mind, it's supposed to be, as I said earlier, stronger than standard CF tubes and therefore the company says that it's not just a race and retire bike, it can be used hard for years and years.
