Strengths:    Very forgiving and stable in all conditions. Tracks very true.

Weaknesses:    None as of yet.

Bottom Line:   
Appears to be a faultless bike. Would probably be a better climber for me if I had went with a 100mm fork to keep the geometry as the designers intended. It is a shame that Jamis is not more prominent in the sales wars.

Strengths:    Strong relatively light frame - 3.5lbs / 13"
Burly chainstays
Excellently balanced ride
Beautiful metalic saffron color


Weaknesses:    None that I've found

Bottom Line:   
I've had this frame for about a year now and I appreciate it more all the time. It's most outstanding characteristic is it's balanced ride quality. The geometry of the bike places your weight right in the center of the bike making it a joy to manuever in any situation. The bike handles as well in tight single track as it does on fast swooping downhill runs. I started out with an 80mm marzocchi flylight and recently switched to the 100mm MXR.It handled beautifully with 80mm but it rides like it was made for the 100mm fork. If you want a great hardtail ride (with suspension seatpost) that can take a beating and handles like a dream this is a bike to look at

Date Reviewed: March 29, 2000

Strengths:    Component Spec, Hayes Disc Brakes, Price, X-Vert

Weaknesses:    Aheadset, LBS setup, No seatpost quick release

Bottom Line:   
Fantastic bike for the dough, got mine for $1400 from LBS on special order. Excellent ride quality, especially for an aluminum frame. Have been riding this bike as much as possible to get the feel for it. Great freeride hardtail, not to heavy and burly enough to take all the abuse. I will definitely repost after I have had more time in the saddle, but am very happy with this bike so far.
