Jamis Bicycles will be unviling the entire 2007 product line on August 7th. Rumor has it there will be 29er/s introduced as well as new carbon fiber bikes.
Stay tuned.:thumbsup:

Dude, please post more info as soon as you have it! I'm not sure if I can wait until August. Thoughts of 853 or 631 steel in a complete package...mmmmm! OK, I need to settle down. :D

It appears that you could go gearie on the SS

Looks like cable stops and derailluer hangar are there, along with the track ends. Must be a slotted caliper mount like a Karate Monkey?

Gears

Looks like the geared bike is built around the Tora fork. Price point should be close to the GF Cobia?

For all of you that have had doubts about whether or not the NJ could ever, ever be cool, the fact that both major bike manufactures in NJ (Jamis & Van Dessel) both make a variety of 29er models should change some opinions. We might be a geologically and topigraphically challenged people as mountain biking goes, but at least we're on the forefront of the 29er movement.

I think what Jamis did was great by building a mid level geared bike. Hopefully it will appeal to more riders on a budget that do not want to build their own bikes. I am curious on how they will market it.

You've also got Diablo for the DH/FR crowd.

Interesting. I had some early teaser info from my rep that the steel would be 953 for both, as in Stainless, mmmmmm=:) This may have changed, and it looks like the geary is alloy, so, any info on material? Nice looking bikes, looking forward to moving a few!!

Oh, how I loved my old Dakota. Please tell me they are not going to spec it with a POS Tora.

Just get a Reba Race on there and represent as the top notch value brand Jamis is por favor!

Reports on the Tora contradict your POS label. I understood it rides like a heavier, stiffer Reba.
