    Ebay is great for this bike as the demand is there. Check out the classifieds at www.roadbikereview.com also.

    For months last year, I foamed over a Crosshairs similar to the one you have. it belonged to a friend at work and he was willing to sell it to me for much less than what it was worth. I hadn't had a bike in 13 years and wanted to get back into it.

    The thing about my friend is that he is a hard core cycling junkie - the kind of guy who buys bikes and uses them for a year and then replaces them. At any time, he's got 6-10 bikes of all varieties from road to CX to Tourers to MTB - all top of the line.

    Finally, after months of talking about it and bugging him, I came up with the money for the Gunnar. But before I could buy it, he offerred me another deal I couldn't pass up - an '03 Trek 5500 with less than 500 miles in MINT condition. For the same price as the Gunnar. So, I took that instead - who wouldn't? Fortunately, the sizing was close enough to make it work.

    After a month or so, I realized I still wanted the Gunnar but my friend had sold it. So, I bought a very nice Lemond Poprad off Ebay. Ultegra all around and a lot of nice upgrades. I love it. But I still have a spot in my heart for the Crosshairs. They are sweet bikes and can be set up for a variety of purposes....

    Anyway, enjoy the Sport and good luck selling the Crosshairs. I'd consider it but I'm flat broke.

    My girl friend is going to test ride a Poprad next week when it comes in. It's an 04 and I think it has 105 on it. Was yours with the Ultegra an upgrade? Does it have eyelets for racks? I've heard a lot of good things about these bikes...

    They are great bikes. Mine came with 105 originally - the last year before they switched to Sora. Most everybody who bought one with Sora eventually switches it out. The guy I bought it from (Ebay) had it set up for hardcore CX racing. I wanted it as a second, foul weather option - mostly for commuting. So I changed a few things. It does have eyelets for fenders that I'd assume would work for a rack.

    Here's how it's set up

    Frame/Fork - Lemond 853 steel - 57 cm
    Components - Ultegra Der's, crank (2x) cassette, shifters, SRAM chain
    Brakes - Shimano XTR w/ Salsa boosters and Pauls CX bar pulls
    Wheels - Mavic Open Pro, 105 hubs, 14 guage spokes, Salsa skewers
    Tires - Vredestein CX Campo's - 700 x 28 - Great tires!
    Bars/Stem/Seatpost - All Salsa
    Pedals - Ultegra SL

    It rides very smooth and is quite different, in a good way, to the 5500.
