The only difference between the 08 and 09 seems to be the hybroforming of the downtube. The 09 has a straight one. personally I think this is an improvement, permitting more space for lock, waterbottle, shouldering etc.
I have been using my 08 version since Aug 08 for daily commuting 2x6miles. I am very happy with it, it rolls very smoothly with nippy steering in traffic but rock solid on descents. My longest ride has been about 20miles inc some off-road and it coped OK with that.
The Lockjaw has proved trouble free but I don't unlock it very often.
I swapped the straight bars for On-One Mary's with a bit of sweep for comfort. The front wheel is custom built dynohub which stays on all year round. I had some issues geting a rack to fit, I settled on the Axion Odysee Disc
which fits the high eyelets.
