In October of 2005, I bought a Tarmac Pro and a Roubaix Pro. At the time, the geometry was the biggest difference, most of that being in the head tube length and angle. It was great having two bikes...

Cannondale will build what sells and discontinue what doesn't sell. Supply and demand, Business 101.

What's wrong with a little snow? As long as its cold enough to stay frozen and not get too slushy, its not much of a problem to ride in it.

I have an 07 Prophet 3 I've had just about a year. I like it really well. It goes over everything and is very forgiving, almost seems like cheating. In fact, its too easy to get comfortable on it and...

Its a combination of factors.

1. Colder air is denser making the wind resistance higher.

2. Your body burns more fuel simply keeping itself warm, using some of the energy you'd use pedaling.

I know at least 2 people over 220 lbs riding the ES wheels and have been for close to a year with no problems. They're a pretty solid wheel.

Isn't the stem adjustable? On my 2004, it was multi position adjustable. It was a pretty wide variety of angles you could choose from. I thought they were still adjustable.

With that being said, the biggest improvement you can make is wheels but $400-$500 isn't gonna cut it. Just ride it, save up your money, then upgrade in a year to a nice 08 on closeout. Or...
