i was torn between the steel (and waiting 5 weeks to get it) and my allez (there the next day) the only reason i didnt get the jamis satellite is that i needed to get miles in on whatever bike i was getting ready for a charity ride.
i am considering one as my next bike before i go the carbon route and keep the allez for sunny days whilst i upgrade it to 105 stuff
Well if my commute home is anything to go by, they are ridden by short bandy legged blokes who think they are clever jumping red lights and then feel the need to ride on the pavement after being overtaken numerous times by a rather older female ... despite RLJing and riding on the pavment
I bought the Xenith Comp for £1,200 a months back and enjoyed it as it came. I then spent £250 or so upgrading to Ultegra wheels and really feel the benefit. It is reviewed in the current Cycling Active and their conlcusion was very nice bike for the money and even nicer with some better wheels.
