Anyone any info on these? I picked one up at the local police auction about 5 mths ago for £27 came with a few extra parts that by the look of standard ones are after market.

The only thing I can find about them is a link to some German catolouge in 1999

I'll throw some up laters with the head clamp/bars etc the clamp has a bear logo on it? It's got manitou 6 forks on it and a bike hut AM disc brake also came with Cat's eye lights.

I know the headset isnt the normal one fitted from pics I've seen of others on ebay.

Bear logo? Could be marin?


Erm you sure its a giant? I recognise that frame and a cant picture where from.

Hang on its coming to me!

Nope, was thinking of a giant xcx which is similar. So i guess your right.
Also similar to the warp aswell.

Google search only brings up a couple.
Possibly email Giant?

This link seems ok, if so then yours isnt stock. But, there may have been different models:
