    Real or fake Giant XTCs from China

    A small number of Ebay sellers are offering Giant XTC frames. The sellers are located in Hong Kong and mainland China, but not Taiwan.

    Are these legitimate Giant frames or are they fakes?

    I live in hong kong, they dont looks like fake for me, and I never heard any fake Giant Alu frame in HK and China. Giant have different product line for mainland china, they are cheaper than taiwan version, not sure about quality.

    This is a XTC 26" frameset from Giant

    Same rear brake mount, and I see no other frame details that are off. What do you see?

    my atx - I orderd the frame from china for less then 200$

    build it myself
    pretty basic with v brake and rigid fork
    I think the frame is great, light and strong, looks real to me.
    thinking of upgrading the fork in the future...

    Is the frame subject to serious off road riding or just casual use?
