I've been riding the Jamis Sputnik for about 2000 miles so far. I don't know how I feel about it in the rain. The frame tubing that runs from the crank to the rear hub fills with water, and I think rain is messing with the head set as well. It gets sticky, when you try to turn. It's happened twice now that the handlebars are 'stiff' and difficult to move left to right.
I'm taking it back into service, but does anyone have any idea what's causing this. I need bike i can ride 365, not just on nice sunny days.
