    2006 MKIII team - changes since then? Sizing ? too

    Looking at possibly buying a 2006 MKIII team. Not having been able to ride an IH bike to test it out but seeing some of the prices on these DW-link bikes I really am thinking about getting one.

    Any major changes since 2006 MKIII to the later models that should keep me away from this one and opt for a 2007 or 08 that are available?

    Also, anyone have a 15" frame that they can tell me what the measurement is from ground to the "v" in the top tube where it meets the brace that attaches to the seat tube?

    You're the experts. Thanks for any help.

    head angle changed slightly, the rear triangle was changed as well as the downtube and i believe the frame lost some weight. the rear triangle, while a better design in theory, was actually more prone to breaking. definitely shouldn't keep you away from a good deal on a 2006. i ride an '06 and i love it. you'll just have to watch your rear tire choices.
