It's not hugely different.
The drop outs and abp axle are narrower this year (on the outside edge, still 135mm internal spacing),
It has iscg-03 mounts, which the 09 doesn't.
It also has a slightly different rocker link, with a larger cutout at the front to accommodate the drcv shock, which is taller than the RP from last year.
Built up it comes out about 1degree steeper head/seat angle than the 09, which is because the 32 is shorter than a 36 or Lyrik. The actual frame geometry is the same.
Something else to mention is the new rear shock seems great for the small amount of test riding that I've had on mine. Last years model, people were putting shims and spacers inside the rear shock. The feel of the 2010 seems really nice. Fahn
