    2015 v2 pre stealth Spitfire - geometry change?

    I've got a '16 spitfire in large, I was considering getting a used XL, it's a '15 v2 before the stealth hole was put in. Were the 15 to 16 changes just the seatube drilling or were there any other changes in geometry?
    Also, has anyone drilled out an older frame?
    Thanks.

    I drilled my '13 Spitfire. Very simple process, no issues.

    There was a geo-refinement for the MY16 Models, which mostly meant a slightly steeper seat-angle and a lower bb, to better fit the 650B-wheelsize.

    Also drilled my 2013 frame in 2016, no issues so far. Frame is already a bit tired and shows a few small cracks in the bb brace and seat tube brace (no change in the last 2 years).
