    Why does every other description have to end w/ "Brand spanking new"?

    When were those things built - like '99 or something?

    Those were built in 2000 or thought to be the new Giant DH frame for 01. It looks pretty clean...no scratches. Like the guy said on ebay, could have been a display model.

    From what I heard, the DH frame we see now was chosen over this one because the center of gravity was a lot lower.

    I believe the frame originally came equipped with a 9.25 x 2.75 rock shox pro deluxe rear shock which was out at that time.

    at the 99 Worlds at Bromont the Giant rep showed me a couple of them, so wanted them to come out.

    This is why i find the argument funny that Giant quickly threw a VPP type design together which later turned into the Maestro in the last two years (accusations of ripping-off SC and DW), when really they've been mucking around with the basic premise at least since 1999.
