Hey all,

I have the chance to trade my Jamis Dragon 06 (set up SS) for a new Fetish Fixation SS. I'm 225 lbs, 6'0", ride 4-5 times a week, and a hard rider. Thoughts on which would be a better bike for me? I'm looking for durability and overall performance.

Thanks!

I bought a Fixation for my son to ride. His chain kept jumping on the cog. After checking the chainline, axle tension, and watching him ride, I noticed that the chainstays were flexing quite a bit, allowing chain slack to increase. So we have to run a tensioner on his bike. It's a good ride for him and has held up well, but if your looking forward to no tensioner, you might want to lock the front brake and stand on a pedal to see if you get the chain slack as well.

that's like trading xt for deore, assuming both frames fit you well.
