Maybe not collectible but the ALR-1 are fairly rare. It's circa 1993, $800 US MSRP. Slightly oversize, bonded 7005 aluminum frame. Nice Shimano 105SC group. I'd say it is a good bicycle, but aluminum frames aren't to everybody's taste. The frame looks like it is for some one around 5'8"-5"10" but is set up for someone much taller. Don't be surprised if you have to replace the stem.

I brought a frame that I'm trying to complete the build, I also have a complete 105 group set the parts missing are the seat post and Handle bars is there a source for any documentation on the ALR-1

Thanks in advance
Tom

The 1993 Giant Cadex catalogue doesn't say much:

Shimano 105 8 speed group.
Ginat G2 saddle
Giant G5 seat post
Vittoria tyres
SR anatomic handlebars
Wellgo clipless pedals.

No geometry, no other component specs.
