    Cypher vs Trance W - standover height

    In 2011 and before, the women's version of the Trance was called the Cypher. Starting in 2012, it is called the Trance W. I'm considering getting one of these for my kids. They are young, so standover height is important. What's confusing me is that the Giant webiste lists very different standover heights:

    2012 Trance W, size small - 27.2
    2011 Cypher, size small - 31.1
    2011 Cypher, size extra small - 30.9

    From the pictures shown, they have the same frame. What am I missing? Did they change the way they measure? Are the frames different? Did they really change 4 inches?

    2012 Trance W
    2011 Cypher

    I just checked the 2011 Trance vs the Cypher and found this:

    2011 Trance, size small - 28.5
    2011 Cypher, size small - 31.1

    It really seems that the Cypher dimensions on the website are off. Why would the women's model have a 2.6 inch taller standover height?
