The 4.5's are the "Spring Collection". Any Giant dealer should have them. They typically have components upgraded over the '04s. There is like a 8 page catalog Giant dealers should have with the spring models in them.

Our Giant rep stopped by yesterday. We will get a lot of '05s within the next 3 weeks. We will have all them by 5 weeks. The new one are SICK... they are finally getting on the ball and making stuff that doesn't look like it belongs in Walmart. Decent paint schemes for once.

About time, the paint schemes have sucked for the last couple of years. Nice paintjobs mind you but the colors and schemes left MUCH to be desired.
