I've been looking for a good road friendly steed to get me off of my mountain bike. I've about given up on forcing the issue with my Serotta, and am looking at a decent assortment of alternatives. My current short list:
Soma Smoothie ES
and the Jamis Aurora Elite that prompted this thread
The Jamis appears to have pretty decent spec, and seems well suited for long charity rides and as an everyday trainer, which is the type of riding I do. It could also handle some light touring and commuting, both of which are realistic possibilities.
Does anyone have any firsthand experience with the Aurora Elite?
