    Still not getting a clear picture of what happened, other than the bike shop scratched your handlebars, and blamed it on your "cheap components."

    I like the Jamis, but wonder about the price. It is a 2009 model that sold new for $1,000. And as far as I can tell, it is stock down to original tires and brake pads. I would make an offer on it.
