    im confused to how you got a carbon anthem frame with a vertical shock position? All the anthem advanced of 2009 are nearly horizontal attached to the downtube?

    It is amazing and i love it, where did u get your hands on it? idea why you only have one chain ring on the front though. Seems to completly betray what the bike is built for...

    oh i just realised that the ' custom giant anthem' was part of the signature and not the post. whoops. So is this the 2010 model?

    Was just having a look about for any sneek peeks and came across it, i'm suprised they didnt do it for the 2009 Anthem Advanced, not sure if its a prototype type thing or whether this will be the 2010 model (well at least the frame anyway), its very tasty indeed.

    I see a bolt through axle.... Single chainring? Shock looks different to the current Fox crop, too.

    All i know so far is that its a prototype (pictured), but it will be in the 2010 giant line up, oversize headtube (1.125" - 1.5"), pictured are one off xtr 15mm hubs (team use only), not sure what the shock is, standard Fox F100 RLC (15mm thru axle)...supposedly lighter than the current Anthem Advanced which is about 100g heavier than the current Aluminium Anthem X. Bike pictured is just under 23lbs, which is just heavier than the current Anthem X0 and Anthem Advanced (which are just about the same weight) approx 22.1lbs w/o pedals.
