    Hey guys, bit late to the party but saw this frame up on facebook for sale a week or two ago and had to have it! been browsing everything here, some mint bikes.

    Anyway, here's my offering. an '08 komodo. Plan is to build it up with my old 36 VAN forks, just waiting on headset and working out what travel I want (suggestions appreciated ).

    For now it's my DJ and park bike, and I can see why everyone loves these!

    lets see some komodo's-img_20170215_192620.jpg

    Well, if you're tall then that bike will have to be a DJ or Street bike. It looks pretty small. That said 80-100mm fork would be about right.

    If you're short and it would fit you to pedal it a while, mines set up at 150mm as a trail bike. I've had it anywhere from 120-160mm to rigid. It works well everywhere but really shines at 150.

    Mine is the 2005 on the previous page.

    man your bike looks sweet! awesome to see how much it has evolved too.

    I think i'm going to go 120-130mm on the 36s, with a 10mm longer stem and another spacer under the stem (only reason it's so slammed now is there isn't much steerer on the fork). Thanks for the suggestion on the travel, aimed me in the right direction.Just a matter of getting everything set right for now, which might take a bit of riding. But I'm 100% fine with that

    My Jamis family...

    Just thought I'd share my latest tweaks. My 10y.o. daughter wanted to build a bike with me this year. I've been so stoked about it that she's been getting my hand-me -downs that normally go on my singlespeed.

    The latest edition to her bike is my Hope Pro 2 / DT Wheelset. For that to fit her bike, she needed a drivetrain to replace her 7spd freewheel setup.

    I gave her my 1x9 Shimano XT drivetrain and replaced it with a new 1x11 XT drivetrain with 30t 104bcd Narrow Wide Chainring.
