    2011 Trance X BB vs 2012 BB? Same or different?

    According to Giant's website the 2012 Trance X has a BB of 86.5mm? I recalled the 2012 has a 89.5mm? Can someone confirm? I am referring to the allow version, not sure about the Advanced carbon version.

    Thanks

    This site will state the BB is 86.5mm:

    Trance X Frameset (2012) - Bikes | Giant Bicycles | United States

    I measured a 2011 Trance X frame: Trance X Frameset (2011) - Bikes | Giant Bicycles | United States and it is 89.5mm.

    This would not make a big difference since I can use my road BB press fit on the frame but I was wondering why they changed it? Are there any technical documents on the 2011 Trance X frame?

    Giant made no changes AT ALL (except for paint) between the 2011 and 2012 Trance X frame...
