Hmm looks like a Demo 7 '08 model. That's my guess. However, do you know what has been changed on it and what is original? If you do then that would help narrow it down. As far as I know the complete bike wasn't available until 2007 and the frame that was on sale in 2006 wasn't white, but it could have been resprayed of course!

Ah true, 2004 is the start point. Was using http://www.bikepedia.com/quickbike/Defa ... LqAGazcnBr for reference. Quite hard to spot changes in the frame over the years.
