I, too, am a very happy Jamis owner of a couple of weeks, although mine is the Coda Elite hybrid. I thought that would be the best solution to going on family rides, as my wife and daughter ride, respectively, a hybrid and mountain bike. It has been great thus far, but I still feel I'm missing a bit from my road bikes of the past, so perhaps down the line, I'll get a third bike - this time a road bike. Not sure though. The Coda Elite is toward the road bike end of the mountain bike/road bike spectrum.
Anyway, I'm glad your bike is working out for you and I have a bit of envy. It sounds like a very cool bike!!!
