Contador on Cocaine - 2009 Jamis Xenith Team - (pics)
This Bike Climbs like Contador on cocaine, and descends like a plane with no engine.
A laterally stiff and responsive frame provides incredible torque on the hollow BBKT and FSA SL-K Lite carbon crank. The Mavic Cosmo's are surprisingly stiff for a low spoked wheel. I weigh 105 kg and i'm 6'4" tall , a true test of wheel stiffness. the wheels also accelerate exceptionally well.
I upgraded from a custom built Xenith frame with Campag Centaur so the jump to Shimano was nice, smoother shifting no doubt and of coarse lighter.miss the euro a bit . I must add as well, the alloy 3T cockpit gives a bigger rider more confidence with out any sacrificed weight.
It Looks hot, and hotter next to my 2009 Dakar XCR Team.
What can i say, i love Jamis Bikes , Frame Quality is the key.
