I have searched for hours and hours trying to find some discussion related to the 2012 Jamis Exile Comp and have come up pretty much empty. For that reason, I have decided to create an account and start a thread for it. (My First Post)
My main questions are in regards to the very unique frame. It is constructed unlike any other hardtail 29er I have come across with its S-bend Down tube (sorry, fairly new to this but I'm starting to get the hang of the terminology) and it's extremely low standover. At first glance I thought it was a femme (girls bike?). Is this true? I mean I don't want to buy it and have it turn out to be a girls bike, that would be quite degrading.
Anyhow, I have become pretty familiar with most of the components and it seems like a good spec for $659.99, especially considering what the likes of trek and specialized are advertising at that price.
The last thing I was curious about is Weight. For the most part I will be riding XC similar to the likes of the Kettle-Morraine State Forest here in Wisconsin (not sure if anyone is familiar). It's mostly technical riding with A LOT of roots and rocks covering good sized climbs and descents. It most likely won't be used for racing, but I was curious if 31.50 lbs. is crazy heavy for a 29er used for hard but "just-for-fun" riding.
Your thoughts and insight would be greatly appreciated.
