A LBS near my office has a left over 2005 Jamis Exile for $700. I am going to check it out tonight or tomorrow. From the specs he emailed me the bike seems like a good deal. Though I am a bit worried about the fork as a quick search uncovered many bad reviews

Does anyone have a rough idea what the MSRP was in 2005 for the Exile? I would like to know how much of a discount I am getting on a 2 year old leftover


Steel frame
Manitou Axel Fork with 80 to 120mm of travel (adjustable with lockout)
LX cranks
SRAM X7 shifters
SRAM X Gen Front der
SRAM X7 rear der

deal or not it doesn't matter. I just got back from the LBS and the bike is way to big for me. I guess a Jamis 19" runs bigger than most. I am just over 6'-0" tall and every bike I have owned since I was 18 has been a 19"er. My current Schwinn Moab is a 19.5"
