    What crankset do you have? V2s had clearance issues with some cranks.

    You're going to need a zero-stack headset like the FSA ZS-3 or Cane Creek ZS-3. I would reccommend a carbon fork. You'll have a nasty, harsh ride with aluminum.

    As long as the stem is 1 1/8" (you'll need a fork with a 1 1/8" steerer), it will fit.

    If you're on a budget, check out some good used stuff on craigslist and the ebay.
