    Isn't Jamis a department store brand that's only sold in places where there aren't any significant elevation changes?

    Duh...just look at the weight




    That is one thing I think Jamis is pretty well known for...hefty. They're tough, but dadgum man! The top end BAM is 40lbs. The XAM's are up a couple lbs this year b/c they've gone to the 36 up front vs. the 32 and I think the frame is a lil' burlier than '07. Thank God they're 6" on both ends now.


    The Parker is freakin' KEWL though. 2:1 ratio 4" out back with a Lyrik or Domain up front would be fun. I'd take her downtown.

    I like Jamis. I like the brand enough that I have three of their bikes (and a naked frame)!

    I actually recommended one to a (even more middle-aged than me) friend who was looking to ditch his old rigid for full suspension. And MBA was alway gushing about what a great value/bike the Dakars are so that's what I recommended he look at. Then, well, just try to find a Jamis dealer around Spokane. At the time, there were none. It's better now but they are still a bit few and far between.

    1) Dragon (I use it for XC)
    2) Nova (commuter)
    3) Dakar XC (testing the FS waters)
    4) Dakota XC (frame only. got a good deal on it)

    Yah, D. There isn't a Jamis dealer in all of KS, but I got a super-schweet-stellar-wicked-mondo deal on my XLT frame so I decided to stick with it. Glad I did though...it's proven to suit me well.

    I don't own any of those brands so I took a look. Jamis has some nice bikes once again this year.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    Yeah...yeah...whatever, you know your bike is gonna be freakin' Gnar!

    It'd be even cooler if you'd put that Campy Chorus frt. der. on there instead of selling it. You know you want to.

    Hmmm, now there is a thought. I did do use a piece of campy record cable housing for the back section of the rear derailleur housing. It was the most flexible piece of solid cable I could find. Thought it may let eveything flex a little more smoothly. I'm hoping to finish it up this evening. All I have left to do is install the chain and adjust the derailleurs.
