    It's alive, it's alive, it's ALIVE!!

    Ok, so can you tell I'm happy, I FINALLY got the funds for my new Jamis Trail-X 3.0 MTB!! Yes I know it's a entry level hardtail but it's the TOP of Trail-X line up and I'm steping up from a Wally-Mart Roadmaster Mnt. Sport SX hardtail-clone. I can't seem to get a photo to "stay" here on this site so I'll add both a photo and a link to the photo's on my bicycle photo album

    It's the last two photo's in the series, What a AWESOME Day to get a new bike, it was 60+ degrees (F) and SUNNY, I'm not sure how many miles I rode but I took off from the shop and just RODE! Stopped off at the Garden of the Gods for a photo, I'm sure that other riders were blinded by my SMILE! Wow, what a difference "real mtb gearing" makes I could do hills in the middle chain ring and not use more than the 3rd. cog down, I was in the "granny gear" on the Roadmaster! Ok enough of my blathering just wanted to share some good news for a change!
    Take care, RIDE SAFE, have FUN!

    Garden of the Gods, many happy memories of our camping trip to Nederland, CO. Drove down to Garden of the Gods, what a place to have a new MTB!

    Time to pray for rain and go and get muddy.

    Enjoy the offroading while you can.

    Oops. From the title I thought you had just taken some Viagra. My mistake.

    Jamis offers the best value for your $. Very good bikes and components for the money.
