What giant is this? a friend mentioned that his friend is selling a full sus giant 2012 for £450, I will be viewing it tomorrow to see it and ask for the spec.

Rear Shock: Fox Float R
Front Shock: Rock SHock recon I think.

    I reckon that's a 2007 Trance frame that has been repainted and had a random selection of parts bolted to it.
    It's definitely not a 2012 bike.

    Oh right yeah looks like it, well the guy said its 2012 haha but clearly doesn't look like the 2012 model. Though looks like its well looked after, but wondering if its still worth considering for the price.

    Looks like it might be a G-Zero FX1 to me. From maybe 2002.

    All I'm doing is googling though, this looks like it might be a match...

    Looks like a Genius MC to me, will be a 30,40 or 50 depending on specs, the 10 and 20 are carbon front triangle so not them.

    Son has a similar age RC20, circa 2006/7
