    Xtc composite 29er 2012 vs 2011

    Looking at xtc composite frame and trying to figure out difference in frames between 2011 and 2012 model years?
    Spec sheets indicate BB shell different 89.5mm vs 86.5mm
    Also overdrive2 head tube on 2012 - is that 1 1/4 top bearing vs 1 1/8??
    Any other differences?

    Any way to definitively check serial number as to what I'm looking at?

    Thx

    I think 12 is the first year for the composite...could be wrong though.

    Well what I think I've figured out is they came out in summer 2011 but Giant chose to call them "early 2012" models. I still don't really know if they were different or not. If anyone else has some info would love to hear it.

    I came to the same conclusion on the BB for the Trance X models too: 2011 Trance X BB vs 2012 BB? Same or different?

    Top bearing/steer tube is 1-1/4", no longer 1-1/8". Eh.
