      Hi Folks,

      I’m planning to get my first entry level MTB next week. Bit tight on budget. So, zeroed down to Giant Rincon Disc.

      Confusion Point: Difference between Giant Rincon Disc 2014 and Giant Rincon Disc 2015. Which is worth buying?

      Crankset: SHIMANO FC-M171 42/34/24

      Since, I’m new to this scene so I got very little knowledge about these though I’m trying to learn. I would be glad if you can have a look at the both the models and tell if there are any major differences between those 2 models.

      Apart from the color scheme, they’re almost identical. Where the parts differ, they just used a different entry-level part. One part isn’t any better than the other.

      If you can get a better deal on the 2014, I’d go that route.

      @schwim Thank you for the clarification. I will start talking to my LBS now for a better deal on the 2014 model. Will let you know. :-)
