    Has anyone in the US imported an international model?

    I'm looking into replacing my hard tail, but nothing in the domestic US Giant line-up comes close to what I want. All the aluminum frames are under-spec'd for my liking. However, there are a few models shown on their international site that I am interested in. One, in particular, is available in Canada.

    I'm firmly locked in the middle of the states, so driving across the border to pick one up is out of the question.

    Does anyone know if Giant dealers can make special orders for international models? If not, is there another way to get one's hands on an model that isn't officially available in the domestic market?

    No-can-do, buddy. You either gotta go fetch it yourself, or have somebody export it to you. If I were you - simply buy the bike in the US with the crappy spec, sell-off whatever you don't want on eBay and upgrade it with your own, hand-picked components.....PROBLEM SOLVED!

    Yeah, that's kind of what I figured. Nuts.
