I would need to know price you are going to pay for each.

If the same price, I would go with the FUJI, even though Jamis is a more reputable name in my view.

The specs suggest that these bikes are very similar.
If one is significanly less expensive than the other, I would say that's your choice. If they are equal then I would recommend the Jamis. A friend of mine has one and I don't hear him complain about it.

Hope this helps! Have fun!

The Jamis is 1.5 pounds heavier than the Fuji. Components are very similar. The Fuji comes with clipless pedals.
The Fuji website mentions that this bike is not even sold in the U.S.?

Ok.
I can't read that.
It looks like the Fuji may have a slight edge in regards to weight and components.
If you have a chance, test ride both of them and see if one "feels" better to you.

I'd be looking at the fuji. The componentry is better. Pedals, FD, RD, Fork?, crankset all little better, shame about the Grrrripshifter.
