I posted a thread about two weeks ago regarding GT Bikes. I was waiting for Dick's Sporting Goods to get another shipment in.
Last week, I decided to go down to a local bike shop to see what they had in stock. I ened up walking out or more correctly riding out on a new Jamis Cross Country SX. I don't know a lot about mountain Bikes but it seems like a really nice ride. I probably could have gotten a better price at a large sporting goods store but the added knowlege of the bike shop owner made paying a couple dollars more well worth it. As a matter of fact, when he was making some final adjustments on the bike before I took it, he felt the gears were not derailing as good as they should, so he replaced whatever he needed to with some higher quality parts.
