I had my mind made up and decided to go with the Trek 7.2 FX for $549.00. Then I stopped in another bicycle shop and noticed they had a new 2013 Jamis Allegro Comp on sale for $500, $250 off the MSRP. Being new to bicycles I have no knowledge base to form an opinion. I rode both bikes, being new to bikes they seemed pretty much the same to me in the short ride in the parking lots. Would the Jamis be a better purchase? I'm assuming it has better components since it retails for $200 more. The Trek is $549.00 and the Allegro's regular price is $750.00. I don't see much mention of Jamis bikes on this forum let alone the Allegro Comp.
