    Spec Comparison--Translation Please?!?!

    Long story short--

    I'm a noob. I recently ordered a Polygon Siskiu T8 from bikesonline.com based on a bunch of reviews I read. After looking into it a little more, I realized I had ordered the Anniversary Edition (it's not identified as such on bikesonline), which has what seems to be significantly different specs than the Regular Edition. I can't find any reviews online for the Anniversary Edition. If anyone is knowledgeable and bored enough to help me understand the substantial differences between the two bikes (as general or specific as you're willing!), a translation for dummies would be greatly appreciated. I'll give you one million points (works for my kids...).

    Thanks in advance. Specs copy-pasted below:

    It looks like you got a better drivetrain (and associated hub to accommodate the 10 tooth cog), different (presumably better) brakes, and a dropper post.

    Yup. A dropper post, debateably better brakes (m615 punch above their weight), and a proper microspline shimano 12sp drivetrain (heck yeah!). He got the better version, but it's not a massive difference.

    The tires and RD are downgrades, but nothing worth thinking twice about.
