    Me too. Thinking about getting the Xenith SL frameset since I am getting tired of waiting for Felt to come up with a permanent solution for the F series fork recall.

    I believe internal routing is on deck...we have it on our 2011 Xenith Team Di2 which is sick! I am not in product development though. The weight on a 54 cm frame should come in right around 13.5 lbs w/out pedals.....the bike is ridiculous!

    notice that the SL do not have the internal routing..why is that since SL being the higher end model compare to Team??

    I ordered an SL frameset and should have it by mid February. Can anyone confirm the weight. I would like to build a sub 15 lb bike on a tight budget. I am taking off some of the Red group from my current Felt.

    i got a 2011 sl frame in march because my Trek 5.9 cracked at the rear seat stay and trek would not warranty it. man am i happy they didnt. the Jamis blows the trek out of the water. in 16yrs of racing the Jamis is the best bike i have ever ridden, hands down. mine tips the scale at 14.14lbs with my Rolf TDF 58's. this bike really shines in crits, but is still a great RR frame. i am looking forward to crit season because this thing is a rocket in the sprints. i hope you got one.
