Anybody got suggestions? I'm coming off of a trek 1500 that got mostly wrecked when I was hit by a car in oct. Now recovered, I'm looking for a new bike for racing and training, and planning to rebuild the trek for nasty weather.
After test riding Felt F85, CDale Six, and Cervélo S1 I narrowed it down to these two:
Xenith Comp, it has pretty much 105, Shimano R500
or for about 200 less,
CAAD 9 5, with SRAM Rival, and cheaper mavic wheels
I road the Xenith and can say, it is amazing(fantastic, beautiful ride!!!). But this would be my first carbon bike, and I'm hesitant to make the switch, and I don't know anything about Jamis, are there frames solid? Do they have a good track record with customers?
Finally, I know carbon's price is going up, but 2200 seems a lot to drop for 105 components.
