First Ride on Jamis Xenith SL

I was pleasantly surprised with my first ride on the Jamis Xenith SL.  I don’t know why but when I hear super hi modulus carbon fiber I always shudder expecting the ride to be super harsh.  The Xenith SL was a nice riding bike.  Plenty of responsiveness on the short rollers I rode today.  I did short 30 sec to 1 minute intervals in the 400 watt range and the frame felt plenty stiff.  I even rode the bike in a big ring crossed configuration hoping to make the front der rub.  It didn’t happen.

Tomorrow is the century day.  I will be going to one of my all time favorite climbs — Palomar Mountain.  I will report more after tomorrow’s ride.

Thank you for reading my blog!
