Italian Giant site has archives back to '99. I had a 2001 ATX Team, it was really lively and well mannered bike with a superlight 1.5kg frame. I think you used to be able to get some of the cheaper models in team colours but as this one seems to be 6061 Alu it's probably not one of those.

I'm almost 100% sure the frame's from 1999, I worked with a guy who had one of these and he bought it from new it was 1999, but it could have been a bike from a year before. They were about £350 new I believe as they're replica team bikes. I recognise the decals on the top tube, I think they came with yellow RST 381's as standard.

I had this bike from new in the late 90's

I was about 13 and had saved my pennies hard to reach £350.

It had RST281 forks as standard. As mentioned it had ESP5.0 kit on it.

It's actually a special edition Giant Boulder Alu-lux (I think it was called). Basically the aluminium Boulder with a special paint job. It's sadly not something very special but good for a 13 year old :)

I remember lusting after a Scott comp racing at the time. I remember this bike and the Scott being in a massive group test/best of in MBR magazine, I would look at the pictures regularly! This was the coolest looking thing I could afford in my eyes.

The green Kenda tyres were standard and wore out quickly. I think I remember in the group test MBR saying that the Giant Team World Cup won the blow out competition!

The top tube sticker set (with the sponsor) is the same (similar) one as used on the top of the line MCM(?) team frame from around 98/99/00/01
