    What's your limited budget? If your looking at v-10's and the lot you can't be that limited.
    Best tip, look for something used, more bike for your buck.

    It has a special frame, the TT can stretch out & the seat tube rocked back. It's the perfect fit all bike, 1 of 4 made in the world.

    i would buy used and save the cash for the bike I really want....If you are asking questions about which bike then that is bad if you are dropping a lot of money

    M1's

    Actually I saw a few others going in the classifieds as well. Mediums and Larges. They're out there if you're looking for one.
    Good luck with what you pick!
