    Vertex Team

    Anyone have any idea the last year the Vertex Team would have been made with V-brakes rather than disks???

    2004 Vertex Team Sc was the last year that had both V-brake bosses and disc tabs. In 2005 it was disc only.

    Thank you. Any special reason to stay away from a pre Sc Vertex??

    I want a cheapish second bike.

    The Team has been made of scandium tubes since 2001, the scandium frame is lighter and more comfy. The pre-2000 TO (team Only) were Easton Ultralite tubes, so they were pretty stiff and could be punishing on washboard and babyheads. Otherwise solid and no real issues.

    Are you looking for a V-brake bike?

    I'm happy either way. I have no issues with v-brakes. I just happen to have come across a pre-sc Vertex TO at a pretty decent price and looking for a second/vacation home bike.
