    Idea! 2013 Anthem Carbon?

    I'm looking to buy a 2013 Anthem 29er Advanced SL Frameset only...

    All I can see available is the Alu framset..

    Does anyone know if they are even available as a Frameset only or just a complete bike? And where would I get one?

    I just ordered a Medium from my Local Giant dealer, I think they mentioned a dozen or so in stock ready to ship then so availability seems to be good at this point. The frame set is on the Giant website.

    The frame doesn't exist in SL trim. Advanced only.

    This may be a thread hijack but here goes. I've got my hands on a 2013 Carbon Anthem frame less headset. I've done some searching but i'm still a tad unsure what type of fork i can use with the OD2 headset and basically what my options are with the headset.
    Q- Can i use a tapered fork- 1 1/8- 1.5? Is it just a matter of changing to top headset bearing from 1 1/4 to 1 1/8?
    - Am i restricted to a Giant headset or does for eg Cane Creek sell one??
    Any guidance would be great!

    My new frame came with a standard taper headset, so pretty sure you should be able to get an aftermarket setup

    The inner diameter of Giants HT remains the same as any other tapered HT. This means you can put a standard, tapered head set in it and run a normal tapered fork.

    I got my SID RCT3 Black tapered 15mm off fleabay for $635 shipped. I see the seller has another listed for the same.
