    Superlight 3.2 and 3.3 differences?

    On the SC clearance site i've seen 3.2 and 3.3, what's the difference? apart from the head tube. I think the my Whyte E-120 will get sold to fund one of these...i need a change.

    Should just be headtube. I don't think any geo change was made.
    Wait,who did he tell you that?....

    Cool, thank you. Just checking there was nothing wacky like big wheels or anything!

    I've been riding a 3.3 Superlight since June and had a 3.2 before that. Head angle is slacker on the tapered, not sure if SC ever really posted the right numbers.

    Definitely an improvement in stiffness though,as it the handles the gnar much better.

    You like it then? any other geometry sneaks? I'm 5' 10" and fall between medium and large, do they come up 'short' at all?

    I like the 3.3...it is about a pound heavier but is stiffer all around. Still the has quick handling, but just a little more burly. I'm running a Fox 120 on it, with a Pushed RP23. I like the single pivot, easy to maintain and always quiet. I've owned more complicated bikes but I'm sticking with single pivots. Hoping to get a new Heckler.

    Tube tube is the same as the 3.2s. I'm 6'2" and ride an XL with a 70mm stem. My brother is 5'11" and rides a large.
