    2004 KHS Alite 1000 vs 2008 Jamis Trail X 3.0

    Which bike is better if both are priced at 300-325, the Jamis is only once used but the KHS has a nice set of manitou forks. Help me out and let me know what yall think. Thanks.

    It's kinda a wash as to which is better on the component side including the fork. The Jamis frame is more of a AM type HT design my vote goes to the Jamis.

    I liked the jamis as well, however I rode it this morning and the bike is just to small for me. I am now comparing these two.

    The Trek needs parts and is a Single Speed.

    I talked to the guy and he said he would put a set of front brakes on for me. and the single speed thing...being new as I am I do not know the pros and cons of a single speed vs a 21 or 24 speed.
