I bought a Rans V2 last night from the LBS. It's black, so I don't think it's the latest model from Rans (which is red). I've heard the Tiller Effect was eliminated on the latest model. I took this one on a long test ride before I bought it and didn't notice any problems with steering (except my feet would bump the Mueller Fairing on slight curves). I've read Sheldon Brown's definition of what the tiller effect is, but I still don't get it. Maybe the problem was eliminated the year before my model.....? I worry too much.
