I have a 2005 Jamis Quest that I'm really pleased with. Jamis seems to put better quality components on their bikes for the price than some of the more well known names, my opinion. I went with Jamis because I wanted a steel frame. Jamis still has a selection of steel road bikes, whereas others have only aluminum or carbon fiber and little or no steel. Jamis is a good bike. I also considered some of the Bianchi bikes as well, but tended to stay away from the bigger names.

My commuter bike is an '04 Jamis Nova (steel).
If I "needed" another road bike I'd consider a Jamis Eclipse. The Xenith looks good but I'm not sure how good their carbon bikes are (also not sure who makes them or where) so would have to research it a bit.

I have an '04 Jamis Coda hybrid and an '05 Jamis Quest.
Although I'm still a newb, they feel quite nice. So much so that when it's time to upgrade, I'll still be looking at steel (with maybe some carbon...maybe).
The ride is comfortable and lively.

If you decide on a Jamis, I have to sell the coda hybrid soon. No space in the condo and can't leave it @ parent's house.
