LightWeight Cyclocross Bike #6: Dave's K2 proto

Numero Seis is Dave's "Giant" cyclocross bike, Dave says, "its a prototype K2 frame that we (i used to work at K2) made for Jonny Sundt. never hit production. My team is sponsored by giant so thats why the Giant decals. :)" Pretty cool. BTW, whatever happened to Sundt?

This bike/frame probably has another full season or two in it & I think our team deal with Giant may be ending. So, next year will probably bring new paint & new decals for whatever bike manufacturer we get. These frames handle & ride like no other so I'll be on them until they break or wear out. :)
