I received a Poprad 2005 yesterday evening. So far only 13mi on it. It does look great. Handling is great too.
The in line levers are Cane Creek (not sure about model #). It certainly is OX Platinum tubing.
Still need to fine tune fit a bit, the reach with hands on hoods seems about 1cm too far. That is it feels better to ride with cup of thumb and forefinger about 1cm away from hood. Maybe just my getting a better CX fit by raising HB will help (but top bar already feels a bit high)
The brakes seem quite soft, there is a lot of travel in the levers (even when adjusted close to rim) and I can't get them to really grab unless I really clamp down unusually hard, which is hard to do with hands on top of brakes.
The rear derallier needs some adjustment already, it is 'auto shifting' even with minor load on pedals - annoying on this mornings ride. These things I can do myself, but figure I'll swing by LBS on the way home so they are aware. (derailler cables don't stretch that much after 5mi do they?)
