    Jamis Xenith Pro 07 or Specialiez Tarmac Elite 09??

    My bike dealer is giving me the opportunity to buy a 2007 Jamis Xenith Pro or the specialize 09 Tarmac Elite at about the same price. What bike would be my best buy the older model or the newer one? pro's vs con's??

    Xenith Pro

    Bought a 07 Xenith Pro from Bicycle Bananas for < $2000 and I love it. Still recovering from surgery so I haven't really hammered it yet, but it is nice and light.

    There is little question that the Jamis has superior specs to it.
    A 105 bike with junky wheels or an Ultegra equipped bike with the respectable Kyserium Elite wheelset.
    The Xenith frame is one of the more underrated frames out there too.
    But ride both and see what you like. Buying a bike becuase it's cheap and not becuase it tickles you in that special spot negates the money you saved. If you have a bike you love then you'll probably ride it a lot more, and that is what's important.
    Chances are, I posted this drunk.
