Earlier this month I ordered an '09 Jamis XCT-1. It should be arriving in about 4-6 weeks. I considered buying the XCT-2 which had some upgraded components, but passed. I did not like the color or direction of the parts upgrade. So instead I chose to go with the lower end model and just upgrade as needed.
My concern is with the suspension fork and rear shock. It comes with a Rock Shox Bar 2.1 for the rear and a Rock Shox Tora 302 Solo Air, air spring, external rebound damping adjustor, TurnKey lockout, 32mm stanchions, & 130mm travel.
I know these are not high end parts. But what I was looking for was feedback as to how suitable they would be for a rider in the 225lb range.
If you have any suggestions to upgrade to which may be more suitable for my needs, I'm all ears. Please provide links if you can.
