    2011 vs 2013 Anthem X

    Hi guys

    Anyone have info between the 2011 Anthem X and 2013 Anthem X frame? Both are 26ers.

    Anthem X Frameset (2011) - Bikes | Giant Bicycles | United States

    Anthem X 1 (2013) - Bikes | Giant Bicycles | Canada

    Geometry of the frame is identical. Frame design looks similar too. Only difference I can see is the rear shock - Fox RP2 (2011) and Fox Float CTD (2013).

    Thanks in advance!

    Silentfoe is right for the 26". The 29er is changed in 2012, they added a dropper post cable routing under the toptube in 2012. Rest of the frame is unchanged in 2013.

    Ach. Forgot about the dropper routing but that doesn't really matter.

    Never mind, I corrected my post too because I saw to late that he asked about 26" and I replied with the "29er mode" on :-)

    Thanks guys! Picked up a 2011 with enough savings to get a brand new rear shock Fox CTD if the RP2 fails.

    In case anyone is interested the weight of 2011 Anthem X in small with Fox RP2 shock is 2430g

    Never mind, just realized that this thread does NOT involve the recalled 29er.

    26er's were also impacted, you just don't hear about it as much (speaking from experience as one of those that had a 2011 anthem 26er crack)
