    Bike manufactured year

    Any way to tell what year a specific model of mike was manufactured in? I own a Giant Sedona ST that I bought used a few years back, and am curious as to when it was manufactured.

    Thanks in advance for any information.

    More likely to spot difference in the annual styling changes of the components.
    than the frame ..
    If it does not matter Much .. then it won't..

    Shimano parts also have a date code.
    It's 2 letters such as JA
    First is year
    1976 A
    1977 B
    etc.
    2002 repeats at A.

    2nd letter is pretty obvious, since they only use A-L.
