    Trek Superfly Frame Models - why is there a difference?

    Hi guys, I am new to this forum and also new to MTB. Just got my first bike, its a Trek Superfly 6 2017 (i have been told) with a 21.5" frame. I bought the bike form the only Trek authorised dealer in my country.

    After i bought it, i noticed there is a difference between my bikes frame and the ones that you find only searching for superfly frames.

    As I am a new guy to this sport, i don't know how big of a difference it makes so I wanted to ask for advice from this forum. Should I go back and try to get the common superfly frame or stick to the one i have as it will not make anny difference in terms of the geometry of the bike?

    The first picture is my bike (with the bottle holder installed) the other one is shows the common superfly frame.

    You do have a 2017 Superfly 6. Your frame is the same it looks different because it's a 21" the one pictured is probably 17.5 or 18.5 .

    How tall are you? That seatpost looks very low. The 21.5" bike is for someone around 6'1" -6'4" / 186- 193cm
