    I think you need to get one ASAP.

    Whatever you do, don't tarck it out.

    If you're after that type of frame, I say do it. Despite the haters, the V2 is a really nice frame for the price. Which fork would you get?

    The V2 is made of thicker-walled aluminum than previous versions and is extremely sturdy.

    I could be mistaken but I believe yours in an older V1.

    That was cute.

    Yeah but if you want the good carbon fork, the cost goes up pretty significantly. Worth it, IMO.
