The Rush, built with Reynolds 631, is lighter and has thinner tubing which I have found makes for a comfy ride. I am consistantly pleased by how supple yet stiff it feels on the street, you get a lot of bike for your money. It is designed as a "track bike for the city", whereas the Mark V is more of a fixed gear roadbike (has cable stops and a more relaxed geometry). The Mark V has an amazingly low price which makes for a great value. If you are used to traditional road geometry, the Rush will feel more responsive. IRO has a great reputation for customer service, and Soma has never responded to one of my emails(Boo).
