I'm in love with that alu frame (used by shimano to show their disc brakes), but I have no idea who the maker could be.

Any idea ?

Looks like an older lightspeed TI with that diamond shaped downtube...

Not Litespeed with that fat headtube for tapered steerers.

And it's clearly not Ti either with those welds.

One.

Man, that's a sexy bike! I would also like to find out who the manufacturer is too.

Don't shimano usually use giant frames?

Giant even use BMC to showcase products. Just ask the dealer where you have seen the bike if you can buy it after the test period. They usually sell them afterwards.

I looked through the current Giant lineup and didn't see anything like this.

Or is it something Giant makes for someone else?

Love the frame, but all I can think is....where did they get that saddle?!? Looks mighty out of place on that build....surely they could have found a silver saddle to better match the tape....immmaright?! :-)

closest i could think of was the ridley fenix a20. I've heard shimano uses Ridley on their neutral service cars, the bikes they had on them where di2. Seen those in Belgium.

As far as I know they usually use Ridley's and the form resembles the Fenix, as Allard said.
