    Is Specialized Allez 2014 really that much different from Jamis Ventura Sport?

    All I want is a fast, durable bike that I can ride for ~200 miles at a time. Jamis is almost 200 euros cheaper so I could afford to upgrade some stuff.

    Short answer? No, both bikes are very similar.

    I wouldn't spend much to buy one instead of the other, certainly not the price difference you mentioned.

    Actually, yes, the bikes are very different. The geometries are quite different, which will affect your position on the bike. Ride them both and see which you like better.

    From a quality and components perspective, they are comparable.

    +1 ^. Most bikes within a given (especially lower) price range will have similar components and quality. Most people will recommend riding them to see which fits better, and if they're both comfortable or if you can't tell the difference then even just going with the LBS you like best.
