    "Older" 275s vs "Newer" 275s

    I thought I saw/read somewhere that the more recently-produced Carbine 275 frames were different from the earlier-produced frames. I could be wrong, but thought I'd ask youse boys or Jeff.

    Geometry or any other differences from say an 8month old frame to the new ones coming out now?

    I read somewhere that the mud clearance issues were addressed on the later built frames...

    I highly doubt there's any change. The Carbine & Carbine 27.5 are the same bike with different dropouts. And changes to those would be rare due to the cost of molds.

    Now, there likely is a difference between the Carbine 27.5 and the Tracer 27.5. If I remember correctly, a few early protos had the "brake bridge" a little too close to the tires, which was corrected before production. That could be what you're referring to.
