Difference between a 700c and a 26'' specific Xtracycle?

What's the difference? I just bought a 700c version for the my 26'' mountain bike. The 700c has tabs for disc brakes which I will be using so the vbrake mounts doesn't concern me. Are there any other differences in dimensions?

I figure worst comes to worst I can get some 29'er wheels since I have a white brother carbon fork which also accepts 29'' wheels.

The actual frame dimenisions are the same. The difference were the brake bosses that they now sell adapter plates for. To run 700c I think there were some risers to increase the height of the snap deck.

Did you get the 700c while on sale?

I got the 700c xtracycle on ebay for $150! I'm building it onto my 08 Specialized Hardrock Pro as a commuter.
