    2004 Poprad - comps and list price

    I've found a used 2004 Poprad and would like to determine the original comp specs as well as the list price. The add is asking $800 and said that the bike was originally purchased for $1300. This seems kind of steep even if it had limited miles. Just recently a 2005 Cross Hairs sold for $750 in the same area and those built up new run over $2k. What is really odd is that the a new 2006 Poprad (non disc) lists at $1200. I also found a 2005 Poprad that was won in raffle and was never used selling for $1100.

    In general my questions are:
    1) Is the 2004 list price of $1350 accurate? Assume that the components got much cheaper if the 2006 list is $120.
    2) What are the component differences between 2004, 2005, and 2006. Lemond doesn't have them in their archives.
    3) What is a fair market price for a barely used Poprad based upon its year?
    4) Is anybody aware of any market differences between the yearsin the frame/fork that impacts the quality and performance of the ride.

    The 2004 was the first year they started using Shimano 105. I believe the list was $1200. My girl friend got one in august/september 2004 for $800 brand new, she did get a good deal. A local shop was selling them for $1200 which was list.I believe they may have used 853 steel for the first time this year as well. I'd say if it is in perfect shape then $800 is ok but it probably should really be more like $600.

    I just paid $1000 for a new 06, so I would say $800 is a little high.

    I paid $1100 for a new 04 in 04. '04 was the last year for 853 (now its truetemper) first year for all 105 drivetrain. Its a great bike. If it is really "like new", then its a steal at $800!

    Dunno about which was lighter, but my '06 (OX Plat) weighed in at 20.4 lbs with 700x23's on it this weekend.

    Pretty light, I think.
