Frame Material:


This is a great bike with no known faults. I bought this bike new 3 or 4 years ago when I decided to get back into riding. I bought this particular bike because it had a great combination of quality components and the geometry was "relaxed" and ideal for getting back into cycling. I chose an alloy frame so I didn't need to be paranoid about damaging a carbon frame. The bike has done just over 3000 km and is in very good condition. No accidents just a few minor scratches and skuff marks, nothing major. The forks are carbon and are in excellent condition. It hasn't been used at all for about 18 months because I bought a hybrid for commuting and a full carbon racing bike for the weekend. I upgraded the wheels to DT Swiss 1900 about 1000 km ago. The original giant branded wheels were bottom of the range and poor quality. The new wheels where about $400 without the tyres, they are still true and the rims are in good condition, just a few scratches and marks, no dings. I removed most of the stickers from the rims because they were over the top. The bike has a shimano 105 group set. The brakes, shifters, derailleurs, cranks,  sprockets are all 105. Giant changed to a lower group set for later models. The seat is comfortable and in excellent condition. Pedals are double sided shimano pd-m520 that take the shimano mountain bike cleats. I can change to standard pedals with clips and straps if desired. The handle bar tapes are original so they are showing signs of wear but still OK. Tyres are Continental Gatorhardshell and are approaching the end of their life. I have applied a few silver and red retroreflective tape stickers (marine quality normally used on lifejackets) to the frame and the rims to improve visibility at night that can be removed.   I'm 182 cm and the bike fits me well with the seat in the position shown in the pictures. From the centre of the bottom bracket to the top of the seat tube is approximately 56cm. Cash on pickup from Castle Hill 2154. Inspection is welcome.
