Is that the new frame Giant started making for SS with the rear dropouts? Or is it a full road setup with derailleurs and all?
If it's the latter, it'll be more trouble than it's worth. Pick up an old steelframe with horizontal drops and convert it. If it's built up as SS, just have your LBS swap out the freewheel for a fixed cog. They'll probably charge for it, but atleast you'll know they'll put it on right.
Personally I don't much care for Giant frames though. Honestly I'd vouch for converting an old bike or just throwing down the extra money on a nicer frame.
