    Best/Last version of Vbrake frame + fatty?

    Hi all,

    Looking to pick up a used frameset, or complete, Cannondale. But, am searching for the highest-end frame with the lightest fatty headshok, that also had v brake studs. What is the last year, and best model, that was also v compatible?

    Thanks in advance!

    The best V-brake hardtail you can find is probably a late model Furio. Not the Furio-X, but the regular Furio. If you are looking for a hardtail with a headshok and matching paint then it would be a 2004 F600. The F600 that year came with the v-brake option.

    Even though the Furio is not quite as refined looking as the Optimo of the same vintage, it does ride and handle the same. I would much rather have a Furio than a CAAD4.
