Hi, please can anyone help identify this road bike. it's my dad's but due to ill health he is unable to ride any longer or tell us anything about it and unfortunately we have to sell it.

we think it was bought in 2005/6

and the information i can glean from the pics is -

Giant T0 forks
Aksium race wheelset
shimano ultegra cn-6000 10 speed
Michelin lithion tyres
it's a small frame size, my dad is around 5'6"

i've spent hours looking for similar bikes to discover it's original purchase price and it's current value to sell on but can only find recent Giant bikes.

many thanks in advance

Murry

    Probably go for about 500-600 quid now, although you may get more if you split it.

    Sad story, sad situation. Sorry to hear of your dad's illness.

    Sorry to hear about the situation also.

    Hey, it's none of my business, but why don't you ride the bike? It's a lovely bit of kit and I bet your dad would love you to take it on!

    But if I'm talking out of turn, I apologise and I'll shut my mouth.

    thanks for your comments folks, very kind of you to take the time.

    i'd love to ride the bike, unfortunately i'd look like a circus clown as my dad is much shorter than me. :(

    Lovely bit of kit and well cared for, due to the small size of the bike it may be a bit of a niche if you try and sell it as a mens bike.
    Bikes are however, universal - and I'd say this would be one of the more popular sizes for women.
