a little background. i usually am able to hit the trails about once a week and would like a nicer, lighter hardtail than what i have. i am considering going a couple of routes the first would be getting a new frame (voodoo wanga or soma groove) and fork (rs reba or similar) and transferring the rest from my current bike until i can afford to upgrade more or jensonusa.com has a great deal on a 07 dragon comp. i would like to deal locally but the price on the jamis is hard to ignore and since i have had great luck with my jamis roadie i would like to get another one. what are your guys thoughts?

Nice bike, that's for sure.

But...you have three hardtails, maybe you should try the Parker they have there on sale...

If your current bike rides okay, I would not bother upgrading the frame. You should just save he money towards the purchase of the bike you really want. Especially because getting a new frame can end of being expensive because you often run into incompatability issues like derailleur clamp size, seatpost size, fork travel and fork tube length.
