Before we get too far into this, have you ridden both? This should be the main
1. Do you think you could ever want to attach a rack?
2. or Fenders for commuting?
If affirmative for either (1) or (2) go Nova.
If the answer is definitely "Never" go 1500.
IMHO, IMHO, IMHO, IMHO, IMHO
the nova will open up fireroad rides and mellow singletracks. i'd never give up my cross bike for a pure road bike.
plus the jamis is steel, cool, and not something everyone and their cousin has.
