    Reign frames

    Can anyone tell me the differences in the frame from 2010-13? I've been looking at a few and it seems the head tube on the '13 are bigger. Is this correct and is there anything else?

    2011 and newer have press fit bb's... which is extremely annoying.

    My 2013 has ISCG tabs and a threaded BB. Head Tube is the same as the 2012 model, but it looks like it measures a little shorter than the 2010 according to the the Giant website.

    The bike got a makeover in '11, it got a 44-56 head tube, larger diameter tubing and a press fit BB. In 13 they went back to a threaded BB and added chainguide tabs.

    The '10 had a 44mm head tube top and bottom, before tapered was so common. it is still possible to use a tapered fork with the correct headset.

    The ride is similar despite the new gen looking beefier. The travel, linkage and shock stroke are basically the same.
