Jamis X2 vs X3 (What jusifies the price gap?)
Im new and the specs look way too similar to warrent the big price jump. Can someone explain what this is
Trail X2 http://www.jamisbikes.com/usa/bikes/...8trailx2.html#
Trail X3 http://www.jamisbikes.com/usa/bikes/...08trailx3.html
RST-Gila T8 suspension fork
Tektro IO-X disc brakes
Do these justify 110 dollars....should I splurge for the X3 will it be that big a difference to a casual rider
Nah...I'd buy the cheap one and save the money for a good aftermarket fork if you don't like that one.
I'm guessing its your first bike. I'd buy the cheaper one plus a frame pump, patch kit, and multi tool. And hemet if you don't have one.
If I'm wrong and you do have those things, I'd follow Chelboed's advice.
Don't buy a frame pump...those goofy things are for roadies. Buy a Mountain Bike pump. Frame pump stretches from the head tube to the seat tube, silly.
