    First Jamis, first bike

    OK Spo at age 57 going on 20 Im getting into MTN biking. Will be riding Santos (Ocala, Fl)

    Considered Motobecane and Ibex but went to Jenson and couldn't resist. In one week i will have my XAMII (2009) Apparently good components. That Hammerschmidt planetary gear crank looks interesting. I have borrowed and rented but decided to finally buy.

    2K is a lot of money but for a new "top of the line" bike I think it is money well spent. Will post pics when she arrives.

    Yup probably overkill at my level but why not
