One of the 2010 specs does not match my bike as received. The rear derailleur is a Deore LX rather than the SLX that Surly lists for the 2010 models. Mine was bought in spring this year.
Most of the changes look like a wash to me with the biggest cost savings being in the crankset. The invisible change not really shown in a spreadsheet is the frame redesign.
