    mark v or jamie roy?

    which one of these would be better for city riding/commuting in fair weather? i have a winter bike, so that wont be an issue. and also besides the tubing whats the difference between the mark v and mark v pro?

    i'm not sure about the mark v but the jamie roy's got braze ons for rear brake and water bottles. it's insanely light and ready for brakes out of the box. i love it, no regrets.

    mark v pro's fork has 30mm of rake to make it tighter.

    also, the other diferance ( I think) is that that the MV pro is not driled fora rear brake, if you would want one.
