    Oh that's very nice!

    I worked for an L3 Jamis dealer for a while. A good friend of mine has a 29" steel single speed Dragon that's wonderful.

    I will seriously give this bike a very close look. However, I'd put a 100mm Fox on it and probably single speed it.

    Looks nice.

    I am sure some folks would like a frame and fork option?

    What are the effective top tube lengths? And will there be an aluminum version as well?

    i would also like to know if this frame is a new design or just a 26 inch frame with longer rear chainstays to clear the wheel. i do like the new syncros cockpit. it is a very nice looking ride indeed i dig the fresh jamis graphix.

    After riding around with a 26" dragon on 650b Tires for some time now, I really hope there is a frame only deal.
    For info on Mexico`s Copper Canyon check http://coppercanyongate.blogspot.com

    And if this is anything like the other Dragons I have handled, the frame finish has glitter in it. It's a great touch.

    Nice bike!
    Now I'll have to figure out which bike or bikes to sell to get my hands on this one!

    68/73 angles = not the same ol', same ol'. Aside from the component fitment numbers (BB shell width, 135mm rear axle, etc), and aside from the double diamond shape, it's got nothing in common with a 26" wheel frame. What similarities are you concerned about, if I might ask?

    I'd say 9.5/10, with the only knock being cable routing (prefer under the top tube); tapered, schmapered.
    Looks fantastic, and I look forward to seeing one in person.

    Viva la B!
    Eat, ride, eat, rest, repeat.
