Strengths:    I dunno, it seems pretty durable. looks sweet, wheight isn't bad.

Weaknesses:    weight, compared to competitors there is no competition (Kona Bass/Cowan DS, Transition double, Yeti 4X, Foes, FX bike ect.) and the rear shock.

Bottom Line:   
It is a good freeride/slopestyle bike if you have it set up right, and is also amazing for big dj's. it is a little on the heavey side, but after riding it for a while you get used to it. overall, it is a very good bike.

Strengths:    looks, initial weight, aggressive geometry, can be used for many different types of riding, price

Weaknesses:    stock rear shock. its pretty much a crap. bottom clearance is kind of low but hey, you can just bunny hop that log.

Bottom Line:   
i really like the frame. pretty cheap, just need to change the rear shock asap and go for a rip. depends on what you put on it, it can handle many different types of riding with ease and treats you very well

Strengths:    look, rear suspension and versatility

Weaknesses:    weight and manitou rear suspension..

Bottom Line:   
If you're looking for a do-it-all bike, choose the nemesis. It can handle almost everything. It's great for freeride, north shore, dirt jump and even urban.

Strengths:    agressive stance, very accurate manuverable geometry. good plush travel for hucking big hit's and drops, firm but light.

Bottom Line:   
it's hard for me to justify a price for this bike because it was free, and I got id dressed to the nines... but this bike is sick. I would pay 2500 for a new one if it got stolen. A great light weight med travel dh bike free ride bike. super solid and smooth

Thoughts on Jamis Nemesis Race vs Scott Scale 750

I'm going to be buying a new hardtail in the near future and I'm toying with the idea of going 650B instead of another 29er. Use would be for XC and light trail (single/double track) recreational riding, nothing competitive although I wouldn't mind being able to make it race ready with a few upgrad ... Read More »
