What Have I Bought???

Just bought a new mountain bike from a little hole in the wall shop in town - but 'cos my Chinese is rubbish and his English was non existent I couldn't get much info out of the owner.

I THINK it's made by KHS but i can't find any pictures or info anywhere on the web. Do any of you have any ideas about who it's made by? It's really quite light and the frame feels like something other than pressed steel, maybe aluminum?? 21 speed, V brakes, quick detach front and rear wheels, adjustable damping on the front shocks, narrow lightweight alloy wheels.

Checked with my cousin in England and he reckons that small 'companies' just buy direct from the factory and brand the bikes themselves. So some guy could have nicked the KHS Blaze logo and started his own company calling it Blaze mountain bikes or whatever - he sells whatever he's got and pockets the profit. Meanwhile the lucky consumer gets a 'no name' bike with exactly the same components as a model like Merida or Kona but for a fraction of the price - I'm OK with that...
