Gday Andrew.. Im selling my Giant if you know anyone looking for a good looking, reliable bike. want about $1100 but am happy to neg. Got ultegra 6700 groupset, fizik wingflex seat, Aksium race wheels with vittoria zaffiro tyres, always serviced and you've seen it, its a very neat bike. I thought you might have different contacts so if you could spread the word it would be fantastic.
