If ya find a good deal on a "left over" or a blow-out '05 why not get it if your in the market, providing its what you want and fits correct.

Yes prices have dropped. Specialized came in earlier this month, the '05 should be cheaper then then '06. This site has 05 and 06 specialized bikes and prices you can compare .
