Strengths:    Review for the 2013 MSRP $750. This thing SHREDS! It does not matter if I am jumping off a park bench or doing some XC riding it can keep up! Short chain stay gives you a lot of control but also keeps the bike from climbing as well. But who cares I got it to jump not ride XC!

Weaknesses:    Fork is more or less for looks. Works on and off but for the price of the bike its easily upgrade-able.

Bottom Line:   
Worth the money! Set it and ride like the wind. Fun bike!

Strengths:    Super strong frame, light wight

Weaknesses:    None review only for the frame

Bottom Line:   
My LBS got me the 09 Komodo II frame back in July from Jamis it was NOS and had never been built up. I was wanting a do all hardtail that could be rode hard and not break.. I had Cannondale hardtails and the frames would break after several broke frames thats why I got and built up the Komodo. What a KICKASS FRAME !! to build up. The frame has a high BB hight using a bash guard you have 11" clearance and for a high front climbs very well and is a killer frame for trail riding. Were it really shines is going down hill it just rails and handles super well. Running a long travel fork make this frame a blast to ride and you can ride it were most hardtail frames could not go. This frame needs to be rode with a short stem.

Strengths:    I love the DJ ones. I have not bottomed out once. the frame is great. Ive had no problems doing drop offs or big jumps. it's got about a 40 pound frame so its heavy for a hardtail but Its worth the weight for the durability you get

Weaknesses:    Its really heavy and hard to go up hill

Bottom Line:   
This bike is a great bike to beat up. I do downhill with it and then I go and jump it. It's pretty much good for any thing but X country. For the price, you get a great deal

Strengths:    Very Burly but not too heavy. Pedals really good. Did some drops to 3' so far and it isnt skipping a beat under my 250lbs.

Weaknesses:    Climbing is not the best for this bike but thats not what it was made for.

Bottom Line:   
I wanted a bike that could take a beating and still work the trails well. So far this bike fits the bill for me. Well made and super burly. Great for freeride/Park and light downhill. Any DH if you like hardtails.
