Hi all,
This is my first post on here but I have read many reviews over the past few days as I'm close to replacing my old 2001 Schwinn S30. I am between the Trek X Caliber 9 (29r), Giant Talon 1 (27.5), a Felt (29r), and a Jamis Nemesis Race 13' (27.5) and can't seem to get away from the Jamis...However I just can't find enough positive reviews to convince me it's the right bike from the price. It's brand new and I'd pay $1,400 for it. The 2014 lists for $1900 and was on sale for $1,570 but I don't want to buck up the extra $170 for it...Any thoughts? I really think I want to stick with a 27.5 which only leaves me the Talon and the Jamis.

Thanks in advanced for the feedback everyone and I hope I can contribute to the community once I get off my 01' Schwinn S30 Schwinn 1999 S-30 Full Suspension Bike Reviews - Mtbr.com

Awesome frame.

Raced it in Texas. Now live in Fort Collins, still riding and racing. Can't speak highly enough of the frame. Jamis is a good company to deal with if you ever have warranty issues.

Feedback appreciated, going with Giant XTC

So I ordered the Jamis then talked to a buddy about the local shops and he pointed me to a shop that carried the Giant line up and I went with the XTC 27.5 2 XtC 27.5 2 (2014) | Giant Bicycles | United States

I'm pretty confident with the decision and will post pics when I get it! Thanks for the help and if anyone has feedback it's appreciated.
