Jamis Xenith race
#1
Lets try it here! Any of you folks ride a Jamis? I have a shop here that wants to sell me a 2012 Xenith Race for $1800. The bike is Carbon fiber and Ultegra grouping. Was $3100 in 2012. Don't know much about the jamis or the Xenith line. Very ugly color Gold on black. Could get used to that if the ride was as good as the owner says it is! Problem is he would need to get it brought in and would want me to buy it even if I don't like it.Not to keen on that but do understand. Have tried to find a 2013/14 to try but no joy yet. Just looking for any input from you folks.
Thanks
Bill

Jamis has a good reputation.

The Xenith looks okay; but it is not double butted cr-mo.....

This is more suitable for me: http://surlybikes.com/bikes/long_haul_trucker

I wouldn't buy anything I couldn't ride extensively like in a demo days.

I am on the same page I think! That is one of the reasons I don't want to buy on the internet!
