    Yeah. I gotta say I like the classic paint jobs of the Leonds a lot better though.

    Hideous looking.

    I'll find a used Lemond before buying one of those.

    I'll never buy anything that's ugly.

    Price seems high

    Why the big bump in retail price from the 2008 Poprad at $1649? Build spec doesn't seem any better.

    Full Rival groupset?

    If you really want the answer, note that this bike is priced so that it falls in between the Trek XO-1 and XO-2. This is no coincidence.

    That's a nice looking bike. I like the all black. Do you think that's the same fork that came with the '08 Poprad? I recently added a Bontrager Satellite Plus Carbon fork to my '05 Poprad and so far I like it. My only complaint is that there's A LOT of clearance above the tire -- not generally a negative, but when I run my road tires, the amount of space really looks absurd.

    Yeah he must be exhausted from the countless hours he devoted to the research and developement of the new line of road bikes that bear his name.
    It's none of my business what other people think of me.

    I'll ask him at the next cross race. Do you have any suggestions, or are cute comments your only skill?

    Doesn't seem to be a terribly aggressive looking ride, and I must agree it seem a tad overpriced.
