    giant stp size issue

    anybody heard of an stp frame with all regular measurements
    ht 4.5 c/t seatpost 13.5c/t t/t 22.25 from top of headtube to top of seat tube
    oh and it,s green and my lbs guy said that was unusual
    short version it built like a slightly/longer reg but everthing else ise reg sized(pro bike)maybe
    held it up next to a medium and it was barely .5 longer

    long was supposed to have
    5 inch steerer tube
    14,5 seat tube
    23 c/c t/t

    any body else think this is a one off??
    sorry for the spelling errors

    Do you have a picture? I don't know what you mean by top tube measured from "top of head tube to top of seat tube." It's measured from CENTER of head tube to CENTER of seat tube along the side of the top tube.

    it not a question as to it being an stp it is a question as to it being a reg or a large
    the giant book of sizes list's all larges as having 5" headtubes and longer seatubes
    but one of the senior guys at the shop did say the giant size bible is a little "iffy"
