    V4...?

    I am getting back into biking, mostly cross country, and was wondering what the opinions on this bike were. Should I look to replace any components right away, or anything else. Also, how does the frame (not components) compare to the V5? The only reason I am not getting the V5 is because my shop doesn't have it, and they are discontinued. I would like to hear any feedback anyone has on this bike.

    The '06 v5 frame was double-butted. Lighter and some will claim that it dampens high frequency trail chatter. Maybe, I don't know. The '07 v4 has no glaring weaknesses. Ready to ride hard out the door. I wouldn't worry about upgrading anything until it breaks or it gives you a problem. Just make sure that the dart 2 is properly sprung for your weight or have LBS swap out the spring. Enjoy the ride.
