In fact, I think the Poprad is specced even lower -- with Sora, no less. I find that a whole lot of mass-market cross bikes come downspecced like that. I guess the figure, if you're going to grunge it up, you probbaly don't want really GOOD components.
Very nice frame, though. It's hard to find 853 at that price point, and the geometry is spot-on. They had a couple at my LBS and I was impressed.
I'm not sure Poprad actually qualifies as a "city" though. Judging from what I saw in the video, there's not much there aside from a lot of snow [wel... it was February]. I'm just relieved they didn't name a bike after the site of the 1998 words...
Can you see yourself riding a Lemond Middelfart?
