I doubt anyone will be harmed by any confusion over which feature I like the most about the bike, when there are multiple things that appeal to me.

With the 1 x 10 gearing, I like that Jamis didn't go with a smaller cassette like a 11-34, or even make the bike a 1 x 9.

Highlighting the gearing was also an attempt on my part to highlight what might appeal to most other people on the forum, but at the end of the day I don't think highlighting the gearing when it wasn't the most important thing to me, matters much.
