    A bad day for my XLT

    Out for a nice ride with my son, 30 minutes into the ride I heard wild creaking 10 minutes later snap, and lots of wheel rub. I bought the frame in 2007 so it's just out of warranty...rats. Well, at least I did not get hurt.

    I dont know why jamis couldnt make a bike without chainstay problems from 2007-2010. I havent heard of many problems with the 2011+ frames other then the BAM which they just cant seem to get right. Its a shame.

    Update!

    After posting this thread, Jamis support contacted me and covered my chainstay under warranty on my 05' XLT even though coverage ended in 2012. I want to give a positive kudos to Tim from Jamis & James Lee from Joyful Cycles in Edison NJ for helping me out. I'm very impressed with how this was handled. I am planning to check out the 650B1/2 in the future based on this, most likely the 2014 model.

    Also a big thanks and shout out to Jeffw-13.

    Since it's disassembled, I'm going to order up and install a fresh set of bearings for all pivot locations then build her back up.

    Looks like jamis takes good care of their customers warranty issues. Thats good cause I just got a dragon 29er, not that I am expecting it to break. I have always liked jamis bikes.
