    Hi been offered good deal on a 2010 LTc frame + custom build, are there any differences (except colours) between the 2010, 2011 & 2012 LTc frames?

    pretty sure the frame has stayed the same. 2010 has tapered headtube, same links and same design. color seems to be the only difference as of now

    I have a 2010, and I've been doing custom builds for a good number of years...mainly for my own and friends bikes and wheels.
    The ONLY gripe I have about my BLTc is SC's myopia on cable stops, at least for that year (dunno if they changed it up in following years). They should be straight thru (or even opens) vs stops in my book, because I've switched over to full length housing since mid 1990s. AND, w/ hydro-hose of brakes, I'd like to be able to cut an entire brake (or derailleur) system off a bike and replace w/o having to thread hoses or cables...yeah, modularity (is that even a real word?) is important to me for fast repairs and ease of service.

    Anyway, this would be about the ONLY thing I'd look for in the 2012 vs 10. In all other respects, I don't see a need to change in the basic layout. That said, I have NO idea about any changes to carbon layup to reduce weight or add strength.

    I asked Santa Cruz this question earlier in the summer and Scott got back to me with:
    Yes, in late 2010 we added a Tapered Headtube to the BLT2 (Referred to as Blur-LT 2.1) and we are just about to start shipping the BLT2.2 models that have an ISCG-05 chainguide mount on the BB shell.

    I take what I said back. The chain guide tabs are a GREAT idea!

    These are in regards to the aluminum LT, not the LT carbon (LTc).

    This is awesome news. That's about the only thing they can do to the LTc in the way of upgrades to make me want a new one, so I'm glad it is 'N/A'.
