I made a Giant bike for my wife and it was in Giant's collection as a frame set for a couple of seasons, both in US as in EU.
Planned a 24" for kids and a 26" for kids and shorter adults.
24" version was launched as a T-Mobile team replica bike.
26" version (6061 tubes, composite fork) was only produced as a frame set and sold by a limited number of countries.
I wonder why bike brands sometimes offer a 24" and a 28" range, but nothing in between. Strange.
Sometimes I see the 24" and 26" ones on Marktplaats and Ebay, or even on the streets.
The nicest one is hanging in my garage.
Horizontal dropouts and no hanger for front mech, so ideal for SS and FG.
As a bike it had nice 165mm compact gear cranks, low normal XTR rear mech, so shifting is intuitive (both big levers for bigger gears, small levers for small gears), clipless MTB pedals, 3T Eva bars, Selle Italia Lady Gelflow saddle, Xero 26" wheels.
