    Downtubes at headtube different on '05 Reigns?

    I just got my Reign 2 frame in and built it up, but with my old Vanilla 125R since the post mounts on my All Mountain 2 stripped. But I was noticing in pics that the downtubes at the headtube junction are different than others. Mine is smooth at the headtube junction, while others look like there is external gusseting. Why is this? Thanks for any info.

    I will take pics of my frame later on tonight and get pics up of another frame with what looks like gusseting up as well. Can anyone help w/out pics?

    I noticed the same thing a while ago. Apparently there was a revision in late 05'.

    Which is the revised version, the one that looks like its gusseted or the smooth one?

    The smooth one was the original (which I have). The revised one has extra tube manipulation; it's not an external welded gusset (at least as far as I can tell).

    Not on mine...

    It's definitely not on my 21" Reign 3. Head tube is long enough as it is. Got mine Feb.2006, but can't really know whether it was early or late issue.
