I have had this bike for a while and love it. I have been told it is a Giant brand bike but I have no Clue what type it is. I wanted to get the original parts for it. Someone had painted it black and I can not find any numbers on it. Just the Giant logo.enter image description here

    At first glance I'd say its a mongrel - a bitser bike made from different sources. The fork look too long for the bike and the handlebars are a different style. Can you talk to whoever you got the bike from originally ?

    Actually, a month ago you asked about the logo on the head tube, here on SE. The question is bicycles.stackexchange.com/questions/77564/… linking here for relevance. This is a subtly different question, though related.

The frame has some distinctive features, like the bottom bracket location and the connection top tube - seat tube.

After a quick search on the internet for images of "giant bicycle cruiser urban" and "giant bicycle" I was lucky enough to strike this picture: enter image description here

which indicates your bicycle is a Giant Suede. The year may vary.

Nice bike, I am glad you are enjoying it.

BUT

for peace of mind I would recommend you to have a look for the serial number if the bike is being missed by someone (I am not accusing you or who gave the bike of any crime, it could have been painted for thousands of reasons, c'est la vie, I am just a bit worried about the owner missing what it seems a great bike).

  • Awesome find! Looks like even the saddle might be original, and the only things that have changed are the loss of the chain case, and the missing front brake.
