My son picked this up cheap!

He didn't know AND DOESN'T CARE) that it's a "feme" series bike!
SRAM components & Marzocchi Bomber M2 Race fork upgrades
It's a beast!
The color appears to be the only difference in a "mens" bike.
Geometry looks to be the same

Just picked up my new Jamis Friday night,first Jamis I've owned . Mid 20's for the first ride but liking the + tires and really liking the bike.
Freaking awesome. Very high on may list for a new bike. I seen the sport version in person. The steel paint job looks so much better than the Aluminum paint.

Jamis Dragon 650B (2012)

My first Mountain Bike :)

I've been demo-ing full suspension bikes to join friends on trails, but not ready to spare $2k + on one. So then I went on Craigslist and found me a sweet Steel hardtail.

853 Reynolds frame is as advertised: buttery smooth and light.

Came upgraded with:
- 1x drivetrain
- Schwalbe Nobby Nic front, Hans Dampf rear tire
- RaceFace Evolve stem
- Redline pedals
- Odi Ruffian grips

I added:
- KS eTen dropper seatpost
- MudHugger fenders (not shown)

Overall weight: about 28-29lbs.

Still beating up my 2012 650b Pro. Upgraded to Flow MK3 wheels, Sram Guide RSC brakes, 2.4 tires, Reverb dropper, 1x10 with Sunrace 11-42 cassette and MRP Blingring 34t up front.

Funny part is, this is how I train for XC. My XC bike is a 100mm hardtail. No dropper, really light.

Jamis 650B Pro

Just picked up this Jamis 650B Pro bike on Craigslist. It was exactly what I was looking for (hardtail, 27.5" wheels, 1x10 drivetrain, quality fork with remote lockout, good quality components). The only thing missing is a dropper post, which I plan to buy and add soon.

I've been riding a 12 yr old Iron Horse Sinister that I bought new which has been a reliable and durable bike, but is very heavy and not really worth upgrading.

I just started riding more seriously (every weekend) with my oldest Son who just got his first new real MTB this past Christmas. I'm loving how light and nimble this Jamis is. Jamis Dragon 650B.jpg

Thanks Chaz. This is my first real mountain bike. Jamis seems to make a great product and I wanted a steel bike for ride quality and longevity. I bought it with the hope that that I'll be able to ride it for years to come. I want it to be a fun trail bike and also a bikepacking rig.

I plan to break it down completely this weekend to spray frame saver inside the tubing. Then put it back together and hit the trails with it. All it needs is a dropper post.
