    New Ride.

    Just built up a Jamis Exile SingleSpeed.


    So far my review is that it's awesome. I had heard that there were problems with the clickit lockout but that Manitou fixed them halfway through the production. Mine is fine so far. I've never ridden with suspension, and I've never had disc brakes (much less hydraulic). I've quickly become a fan. My other mtb is an aluminum frame (XACD) so I'm loving the reynolds 653 on this too.

    I'm not getting rid of the full rigid or the fixies anytime soon, but for a while I think I'm going to try to focus on getting on the dirt.

    Oh hell yes. Nice choice QP, those are la bomba. Nice lean tubing, stupid simple everything, and you don't have to deal with any cables at all, except for the lockout on the fork.

    Congrats on the nice bike. After you have given it a nice coat of dirt, post a picture.
    I hope your weekend weather will be as good as it is here in HOuston. This will be the first weekend in like amonth that I will get some dirt time. F*N Rodeo!

    I am a moron. Nonetheless, it is a sassy mountain beast.
