Still want a Poprad?

Think you missed your chance to get a Lemond Poprad? Not quit, here she is.

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.

i think the bike is great, it was going to be my choice but it wasnt available soon enough and i decided to build something...which ended up costing me a bit more but im going to be more satisfied i believe.

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.
