Paul, Mate, here are some photo's of the new machine.. very happy with the outcome. Fits well with okay stand-over. More than my Anthem. Oh... and there is one more photo that you asked for.
I decided to go full XT group set, 3T carbon seat post, Easton Carbon XC70's, Time Attack pedals, Specialized Romin BG saddle, DT Swiss wheels (Giant branded), Fox Float F32 RLC Forks, JetBlack foam grips, Maxxis Crossmark tyres and Stans No-Tubes sealant. (It's SWEEEEEEEET!!)
Thanks again for all of your help! Cheers, Jeff.
PS. The hills in the background of my "Aussie Sunshine photo" is my local track! (Yes, I do look at the MTB track over my back fence)
