$5100 for a Sram X9, Avid Elixir 5, and AC wheelset????
Wow, that bike seems pretty overpriced, imo, or am I out of touch with the current prices.

any pricing info for the new 650b Dragon hardtail?

gfizzy - 08/08/11 - 5:32pm

What is interesteing to me is that they are showing both the 29ers with, as yet unseen, GEAX Mezcal 29er tires?!

What happened to the good old days when Jamis made great bikes for a great price?????

They still do make great bikes for a great price. The Dakota D29 is 4-500 less than any other carbon hardtail 29er. The two FS 29er bikes are right on par with similiar stuff from Specialized.

They do still make a great bike, look into the Exile and Durango Series. Terribly competitive in their class. Far exceeds the GT’s, TREK, etc etc
