Looking for some feedback on the differences between these model year Jet 9 frames. I know there were some improvements made to help stiffen up the rear end, but not sure when that upgrade was implemented.

The 08 & 09 were recalled & upgraded with the new 10, Since then they are much the same with the 80mm rear travel, Until late last year when they built the new 100mm travel Air formed frame.

Few more questions....there is around $250 difference between a 2011 and a 2012 frame. Just trying to find out if it's worth the extra $.

-- Was the geometry the same between the 2011 and the 2012?
-- What about the rear shock? Have read that the 2011 was set up with higher compression dampening making the bike ride a little more firm. Anyone ridden a 2011 that can help with some feedback?
-- Is the ride similar between the rear shock of a 2011 with pro-pedal off and the 2012 with pro-pedal on?
