I know Giant don't get the most amount of love on here but I don't mind admitting that this has a special place in my heart, it's my old team bike from bitd except it's since had a few (hopefully sympathetic) tweaks.
It only just counts as 'retro' given the year split and although to me it's not got the same retro feel as the rest of my stable it's certainly one of the nicest to ride.

i do like this alot!!!

i have an 01 atx 880, the frame geometry and design seems pretty similar to urs apart from the cable guides being slightly different and mine having disc tabs.

good effort!! 8)

That is quality! Is that the same as in Chainspotting?

Either way - I am a big fan. It looks immense.
