I've heard that they are around but don't know where to look.
Anyone got any insight?

Cheers
Nick

Have you seen Giant's 1997 catalogue?  It has piccies and full spec in the
back.

I've got a demo model in the shop now-have ridden it on east coast trials
and will say it is a fun bike to ride.  Soaks up anything, a blast
downhill, and climbs tricky stuff well.  The downside- a bit slow under
acceleration (middle ring is really slow) and suffers on fire road climbs.
 Most due to weight - stone stock at 27 1/2 pounds (with wire tires and
very basic Kalloy parts).  Would I buy one?  If I wanted an all around fun
ride (and had the bucks) yes.  It rides better than my friends LTS 1.
Would I buy on to race?  (I race on a Ritchey P-21) no, a bit too sluggish
for my taste but if you like FS and don't mind spending a little to bring
the weight down go for it.
