For 2009, the Jamis Aurora Elite has steel forks. Also, the geometry has changed.
In the past, the geometry of the Aurora Elite was based on the 'cross bike (I forget the name). According to Jamis and two dealers I talked to, for 2009 the geometry is the same as the base Aurora but a better grade of tubing is used for the frame. Overall the Elite is several pounds lighter than the Aurora.
