the US doesn't get the LE with that sweet seatpost because of the difficulty in cutting the seatmast. it needs a specific blade and has to be at the right angle and height. it all comes down to a warranty issue really. guess they weighed it out and realized americans are pretty bloody ignorant at times and would probably end up choppin the hell out of the frames, resulting in a bunch of blabbering disgruntled customers. a trip to europe to get one would be well worth it though.. that's what i'm planning on doing
cheers

you have a remarkable talent at oversimplifying things, now don't you? :rolleyes:

btw - if you get an integrated seatpost giant, then i suggest doing some research into how you're going to bring it back - it's not going to fit into a Trico, or a Thule hard shell case, unless you've got very short legs ;)
