    If that is a carbon bike let me show you my experience with Jamis carbon in the last four months:

    Bike was less than one hour old, ridden around the block and over a couple curbs. First chainstay:

    Second chainstay, one week old, bonded bushing broke loose. There is no aluminum dropout plate there, just carbon fiber and epoxy with a wimpy aluminum bushing.

    Third chainstay, maybe six rides, no big crash

    Fourth chainstay, three rides, no crashes

    One other thing, since there is no dropout plate, only carbon, the axle on every chainstay was slowly digging into the carbon. Each time I rode the bike I had to tighten the thru-axle about 1/16 - 1/8 turn. All of the chainstays broke before it was a real problem, but if they had lasted it would have probably been an issue not too far down the road.

    I weigh 170 and don't ride that hard. They warrantied each one, but losing two weeks of riding each time got old. New bike, no more problems

    WOW, not real happy to see that on your XCT. I bought an XCT3 from Jenson, hopefully my experience will be better. It's not really been ridden yet due to weather, but based on this, time to get some helicopter tape and get it out ASAP...

    Wow, I would say go with the aluminum. Except that I broke my 2012 at the seat tube. Received a replacement and swapped out for a Scott Genius. Great deal and after 3 months in the saddle I have had absolutely no problems. Just got back from riding Tsali system in NC. Hammered for 2 days straight and I never missed my old 25 lb bike. Of course I could handle xx1 to get me sub 30 lbs just for more bragging rights. OK I'll take the carbon rims too!
