Okay so I found an older Poprad deal that they guy thinks is either 03 or 04. When did LeMond start using the 853/True Temper combo? Also is the geometry different between these three years? Anyone have the full specs? Would you pay $750 for a new 03/04 or the full price ($1200) for the 05...why/why not?

I appriciate any help you guys can give me. I planning on using this bike for road riding and then some offroad trails/fireroads, eventually as the commuter....thanks

edit: found the older specs on their website but I can't open PDF's ...arrggg

well the 05 uses different tubing (truetemper) the older ones use the 853. Ive got an 04.. I love it to death. if you like the color scheme, Id say save your dough and go with an older one, you can use the saved$$ for bills, food, or swanky parts.

I picked up my 03 brand new for $550 at LBS having an after Xmas sale and getting rid of older bikes.
