I've dealt with both mailorder companies and have had much success with both. I also worked in a shop that was a "non-stocking" Jamis dealer. We could get them, we just didn't stock them. Wish we did, they're good bikes for the price.
I saw that frame at Jenson. It's a good frame. The frame should hold up fine for you. Being a heavyweight myself, I worry less about the frame than I do the wheels. The frame will be fine, just buy a heavier duty set of wheels. Something like some RynoLite rims laced to a decent hub like an XT.
Also, I highly recommend stiffer springs for whatever fork you buy (if a coil sprung).
