Really wanted the carbon version when they came out , but couldn't afford one . :(

... nice pic and really great TT-Position - sorry you interested in Giant SL Aero seatpost in size 4 to optimize your TT-bike ... I still have one in NOS in my stock

This Frame was really rare in Europe, esp. in Germany. Most of them sold to US. This Frame also build with German Telekom Team too.
Our local Giant Flaggstore has a frameset of Telekom.

Thanks for the offer , but I actually have one for sale .
It was on the bike until I did a turbo session with clubmates , who pointed out to me just how much it flexed . Hence the use Alien I think it was .
I think they were running 9 speed back then too , but I may be wrong .

Very nice build. I’m embarking the the same build with a Shimano equipped donor bike, so your specifications are very useful, especially around Campagnolo wheels, which I wasn’t sure about. I did notice that your front forks don’t look correct???
