    jamis dragon 29 race; any reviews?

    So i'm looking at possibly a jamis dragon 29 race, but i'm having difficulty finding any professional reviews of the bike.
    Surely this model must have been reviewed in some magazine at some time?
    Can anyone point me to such a review?
    Many thanks!

    Not a professional review but.......

    I have owned one for five months now, in one word -awesome. I haven't taken it downhill, but it hasn't missed a beat in any other form of riding. There's only one possible change I'd make - wider bars. I'm 6"2 and broad across the shoulders, I'd like another inch on either side of the bars. Seems to have an almost cult following because it's really hard to find professional reviews.F

    Been on mine for about a year. Absolutely love it. Couldn't find many reviews when I was shopping for it either but it didn't matter. Was looking for a steel hardtail with decent tubing so it covered all the bases.

    My local trail is flat and fast but very tight with lots of turns. So I needed something that had good handling. The Dragon has been more than up to the task. Very stable yet carves corners very well.

    I've raced it on a very hilly and technical course and it did very well there too. Lots of climbing, some tight switchbacks, fast downhills, had a mix of everything. The Dragon worked very well. Can't imagine anyplace that is XC oriented where it wouldn't work.
