Looks very similar to a Giant Box 1 (or 2 - same frame). URT design, around 1998 ish. Search on here/google should confirm that.

Looks identical to my old Team Saracen, except my rear triangle was yellow...

...I'll buy the fork off you if you're so inclined though :wink:

Not a Giant Box 1/2/3 or anything from the Trek empire. Certainly has a Britishness about it such as Saracen or Falcon group. Saracen seems a possibility as they have made full aluminium URT designs. Nice component list if original so I'm interested to see what this turns out to be.

Its a DDG frame, and/or the same far east effort with what ever brand name you wanted to put on it, the trade were buying these at about £69.00 and selling them mail order for......whatever they could get. Normally £199 there or there abouts,

hope this helps.
