I like buying from the previous model year. The changes in parts aren't that drastic from year to year. It is always a shot in the dark to buy without a test ride, so you have to weigh that value into the mix. Get a list of the components and stop by a Bike shop and ask what they have with similar components, see how things match up. If you can, post a picture of the bike you are drooling over.
I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!
