    2011 vs 2012 Anthem X 29...

    Is it just me or does it seem like Giant took a HUGE step backwards on what they are offering on the new 2012 build specs of the #2 build for the same price??

    2011 Parts:
    Black and Red frame color theme
    Fox Float 29 Fork
    XT equipped
    elixir R brakes
    Fi'zi:k saddle
    P-XC29 rims
    DT-Swiss 370 Hubs!

    2012 Parts:
    Black and White frame theme (done to death!)
    Reba RL fork
    SRAM X5 Group
    Elixir 1 brakes
    Giant Performance saddle
    S-XC 29 rims
    Giant tracker Hubs...

    Am I missing something? Cause thats pretty discouraging for the Giant Anthem fans out there...

    It's not as bad as you think, don't worry. It's not apples to apples - a true comparison is a 2011 Anthem 29er 2 side by side with a 2012 Anthem 29er 1. Very similar in component level and price.
    Anthem X 29er 2 (2011) - Bikes | Giant Bicycles | United States
    Anthem X 29er 1 (2012) - Bikes | Giant Bicycles | United States

    2011 Anthem 29er 3 = 2012 Anthem 29er 2, and so on. They didn't have an "0" model in 2011 so I guess they shifted the numbers by one for 2012...

    Oh I see, so they were charging more for the #2 build last year... I thought they were the same price range because last time I was in a giant dealer they had one 2011 #2 left in stock and was priced $2,350 the 2012 was 2,450.... So nice deal I guess
