You are in the V4 owners thread though...so we may be biased.

Good point, aha! Well, guess I'll get the V4 and with the extra money i'll upgrade the seatpost and what not, thanks! Ordering it tonight so should be able to post pics pretty soon, excited! tup

If you talk with Nicola, ask him for a deal on a rockshox stealth. I thought he gave me a great price on it for the research I did on it. Free shipping too! (shipped /w the bike haha)

I'd buy a cheap used on eBay and if or when it needs a service send it through LBS to scram and they'll sent you a new one !

Oh really? Why do they send new ones instead of servicing it?

They usually do that if you have the invoice and it's still under warranty.

And they do it this way because it most likely is cheaper for them to just send a new one (and eventually have the old one refurbished in Taiwan) than pay a mechanic to open it, find the problem, change what's needed, bleed it, clean it, and ship it back.

Hmmm, won't have the invoice if I buy it off of ebay though.. Razz

A friend buy RS stuff only. He says that you never OWN a RS but iTS more of a lease to him. He buys a fork nowing it wont last 2 years, send it back in for service and get a fresh new one with new warranty. So its a lease contract to him. Dunno if its good or bad

Just a quick one if any one is interested, just fitted the down tube protector thats featured on the V4.2 to my V4.
£12 from Commencal (and as much in carriage!!)
http://www.commencal-store.co.uk/frame-protectors-c102x2289942
2 sizes so choose.
Drilled the frame, 2 x M4 Rivnuts (like bottle cage fixings) and fit with screws supplied.

Oh man, just saw that the 2017 Meta SX is at 2899$, seems like a beefier build, is it worth it the 400$ more? The V4 is 2499$.

Here's the specs:

v3 is a pain in the ass to pedal compared to v4.

I've got a V4. No idea what bottom bracket size I bought. All I know is its press fit hope. With a shimano zee crankset. Looking to upgrade to sram gx but want to keep this bb in. Is that possible?
