2011 Jamis Bikes

Hello, Rob. When will the 2011 bikes and MSRP's be on the Jamis website? I'm interested in a Dragon 29 or something comparable. I hear there may be two different Dragons for 2011. Thanks much!

Any idea on the wt's of the team and pro? What is the ETA on these?
Thanks.
Wish they would have put the AC wheels on the Pro, and charged a few extra bucks. May have to work with the shop on that swap.

Rob, I heard Jamis was going to be coming out to Buffalo, NY for a CX race in early November. Can you confirm? Also, if Jamis is coming are you going to be bringing the above bikes? Thanks...Erik

Glad you guys kept the great geometry. IMHO, there are plenty of companies going to slacker head angles in the smaller size carbon hardtails(sometimes screwing up handling just to compensate for overlap) *, but not enough that really understand that there are smaller guys like myself that feel they have good bike handling skills and want a quick handling front end with the ability to get over the larger (proportionately) wheel in front.
You guys have the best geo in the business and as far as I know one of the few that get it right with 71 ha in the larger sizes where big guys are already (again proportionately) over the front wheel, but 72 for us smaller fellars to get the leverage rates correct when turning 29" wheels.
Hopefully you won't change your well thought out geometry designs in the D29.
:thumbsup:


*
IMHO, by increasing the diameter of the wheel, the “trail” is also increased. If u have a 71 degree head tube angle keeping everything constant,
a 26” wheel might have a trail of 76mm while the trail for a 29” wheel with the same head tube angle the trail grows
by 15% or so. As the trail becomes larger, the steering starts to have a flip-flop washed out feeling on the allready larger wheels for smaller guys, for larger guys; not so much.
One way to compensate for this is to increase the offset of the fork which increases the wheelbase on the again, allready stretched out wheelbase for the larger wheels. (the larger wb is something that usually is not factored into trail/offset calculations when offset is increased[reducing trail] to compensate for slacker head angles such as in G2 geometry on 29ers. )
(This is great for some guys and again, there are plenty of bike companies compromising with 71 and much slacker head angles throughout their size range for them.) Also, Cane Creek is offering the angleset headset to work with tapered head tubes to adapt 1&1/8 (not tapered) forks to give you angle adjustably by up to +/-1.5 degrees and really dial in your ha.

Stand Over

Rob,
The stand over for the D29 pro and team is listed different in the 2011 catalog then on the website. The 2011 catalog has the 15 inch at 28.74, is that really true?

D29 Geo

Unfortunately the geometries listed in the 2011 Product Manual for the D29 Team and Pro are incorrect. Please refer to the website for the proper geo on both models.

All the photos I've seen for the D29 have a mount for just one bottle cage on the down tube. Does anyone know if this is just with smaller frames or does a 19 and 21" frame have a seat tube mount as well? As trivial as this is it'll be a dealbreaker for me. I need two cages...

Both the 19" and 21" frames have bottle mounts on both the down and seat tube. Unfortunately with the low standover of the frame, the two smallest sizes (15" and 17") will not allow a bottle on the seat tube.

I'm new to Jamis and highly interested in a 2011 D29. I hate asking sizing questions but I noticed the TT's run smaller then other companies based on their sizes. I'm 6'2" with a 35" inseam, are riders preferring the XL over the L?
