I was all set to purchase a Lemond Wayzata when my LBS informed me that the model was dropped for 2005 and no 2004 available. Any downside to getting the Poprad and switching out the handlebars/stems/levers to flat bar and mtb shifters/brakes? also changing the tires. I was under the impression that the frames were the same. anything I am missing? also, what parts would be equivalent? LBS is asking $50 for the switch. seems reasonable to me.
also, i see some people have the '05 poprad. does anyone have any pics or links to pics? doesnt seem to be up on the lemond site.
btw I am a mtbiker looking for a bike to commute with, for fitness and possibly charity rides and centuries. Had a roadbike for a year (cannondale) and could not get used to the drop bars and bent position. any other options for me? was considering the sirrus and kona dew deluxe but I want steel!
