No, not a 40 foot frame or anything :roll:

Never seen one of these before. Anyone got any ideas?

It is a giant MCR bike.

Frame, stem, seat-post and wheelset design by mike burrows. In this case just miss wheelset and seat-post

Yup. But intriguing though, I find.

Thanks for the info. Bit of an ugly duckling, but I find myself rather taken by it! If its a bit out the ordinary I tend to like it :roll:

I had this one:

It is a similar frame but slimmer and little lighter. The giant one is more stiff than mine. For a TT run it is an amazing frame cutting the wind but with side wind looks like a sailing boat.

If i had the money this giant was mine

That looks ace, impressive bike you had!

Despite the name, the Giant is a lttle too small for me by the looks of it anyway, and im not much of a road rider either so this would be wasted on me really. Wouldnt mind a go on it though :)
