No doubt. I honestly don't think this person knew (they copied and pasted the specs from specialized.com), as they were told it was a 2006 when they bought it. I believe they got jipped.
Anyway, I'm looking around online and in bike stores for a good deal on a hybrid. I really want either a Trek 7.3 or 7.5 FX or a higher-end Specialized Sirrus (or something comparable). I know most of the bike shops are clearancing out all of their 2009 models now, making room for the new 2010 models, so maybe I'll come across something. Back to the hunt.
