    Giant XTC A1 carbon frame query

    I bought a second-hand Giant XTC A1 Alliance frame, from 2008 (I believe). The seller is adamant that the seat tube had 2 slots right from the factory - see my photo. Is this true or is it a sign that the frame developed a crack and a second slot was cut as a "fix"? The slots are identical in size. Thanks.

    If you look at p12-13 you'll see a Giant carbon road frame from 2008 which also has near identical slots in the seat tube. The mtb doesnt go close enough to see detail BUT from that road bike picture I'd be inclined to believe the seller.
