From Cycling News: Stock Frame - Different Fork

Cyclingnews Tech Editor, John Stevenson, was fortunate enough to test a replica of the T-Mobile Giant a few weeks back, and boy, did he have fun. But what John also noticed was that Wesemann's Giant has specially-drilled brake bosses to accomodate cantilever brakes, and judging by the amount of clearance between the crown of the fork and the front tyre, he's substituted his road fork for a cyclo-cross fork. A all-carbon monocoque frame, the TCR Composite Team is one of the world's lightest production frames - if not the lightest - with a claimed weight of 950 grams for their medium-sized model. Strong box-section rims, 36 spoke wheels, some pavé-specific tyres, another helping of bar tape, and voila, Wesemann's steed was ready for Roubaix! Both the Giant and Wesemann held up well, but the 34 year-old German missed the winning move with around 12 kilometres to go and ended up in 16th place

Looks like a standard TCR medium frame with bonded-on lugs for the rear canti brake.
