Are all Haro V series frames the same?

Just wondering whether I should put some money into this bike or not... wondering how good the frame actually is.

i asked this before but worded the question way too long so I don't think anyone bothered to read it

Whether you pour money into it or not is your decision. As far as I know all v series frames are the same, are they good frames? I like mine a lot but I've probably already overspent on it.

yea, i know, its just i'm new to the sport so I"m not sure how good a frame the V series is...i've never really ridden anything better so i don't know if it would be worth it to put some better parts on mine or just ride it till it breaks and buy a better bike.

I've never had any complaint re the frame, I like the geometry, it steers quickly and remains stable. Its never dropped my ass on the ground through its fault. It probably climbs really well but I'm so slow uphill I couldnt tell you. What V do you have? and whats its basic specification? If youve got the basics like disks, a decent wheelset and a reasonable crankset then it might be worth dropping some money on, the frame shouldnt be a problem. Ive spent about the same as I paid for mine again, but at the time I couldnt afford to pay for any better a bike and the bike I have now suits me very well.

I have the entry level V frame and I abuse the heck out of it. The rims are cheap single wall and they have stood up to the pounding I'm delivering them until they fail. Then I will go to a double wall rim. A mechanic friend of mine said the frame is tough and will last and recommended I build the bike up and not worry about buying another.
