Strengths:    Dura Ace!!! Shifts amazing. Frame doesn't flex under load and is not noticably harsh. The carbon fork dampens quite a bit of chatter.

Weaknesses:    Personally didn't like the saddle even though many do like that one. May swap bars because the arch in the drop is not long enough for my whole hand to fit comfortably.

Bottom Line:   
Riding the bike just makes me want more. From the frame that is not as harsh as I would expect from other aluminum frames to the fact that it comes with full Dura Ace and Mavic Ksyerium SSC SL wheels you can't beat the value. Such a steal at this price. The bike rides like a dream rockets when you pedal and shifts like a dream.

A good friend of mine has a Xenith SL with a broken chainstay, and Jamis is giving him the runaround saying it sustained an impact. His story is that someone at Jamis mixed up his pictures and denied him warranty coverage based on photos of someone else's frame. Now, I know this guy pretty wel ... Read More »

Looking for Input from Jamis Xenith Endura Owners

Hello All, I am contemplating the purchase of a Xenith Endura. Of course, none of the local shops around here carry one in my size to test ride, nor will they order one without a commitment to purchase. The closest thing I could find was a WSD in my size, which has a slightly shorter top tube ... Read More »
