The frame looks nice. The graphics are a little... boring.

The version I saw a few weeks ago had a much more bold paint job on it. (something Giant is working on).

I think/hope it's still a prototype, it just looks like it's not finished yet, not very refined. The rear brakes don't match the rear stays; I think a traditional brake would look better, though it looks like it is not possible to mount one. It would be nice to see those new Shimano 2-point mount brakes on there. Cable routing seems sloppy, especially so for a (seemlingly) Di2-only frame.
Let's hope for some more interesting frame graphics as well!

That IS still an early version of the bike.

Hard to believe they couldnt do something with those brake lines sticking out there in the wind.

Bike should be unveiled officially at the TDU.
