8-Jamis Xenith Comp Femme.jpg

This is a great road bike with large carbon frame tubes, a huge bottom bracket shell, and asymmetric chain stays for a stable and reactive frame. “Great balance in ride feel and feedback,” reviewers say. The bike has a Shimano 105 10-speed drivetrain, Ritchey stem and handlebars, and Fizik MicroTouch bar tape. Bikers like it for overall dollars to value and performance combination.  Other key features are full carbon composite 1-piece monocoque fork and Tektro R540 dual-pivot brakes. www.jamisbikes.com
