    this is a new one

    the cs cracking near the dropout on the parker is well documented. but the other day my dad found that the metal around the pivot connected to the rocker had nearly split. ive never seen any bike fail there. hopefully jamis cs is quick.

    lol yeah. i mean im sure jamis would have handled it great but my dad just decided to move on and try something new (plus he is friends with a transition rep so he is getting a pretty killer deal).

    you still going to get a new frame under warranty? it's always good to have a 2nd bike...

    i think so, that way i'll have my xam, my dad will have a bandit, and we will have the parker to loan out to anyone that wants to ride.

    just wanted to post back here and give props where props are due. i have to say i was getting a little disheartened with jamis with the issues the parker has had and that i felt we were getting the run around by them. turns out jenson had a new cs guy that didnt really know what was up. but big props to the jamis rep on here, he saw the pictures i posted and contacted me. we got the situation resolved and long story short a new seat stay is coming my way. i think jamis handled it exceedingly well and for anyone on the fence about buying a jamis, do it! the take care of their customers very well. i would be buying a new xam when they come out but unfortunatly the specs dont really allign with what im looking for. no matter though, im still loving my 08 xam and am anticipating many many more fun miles on it.

    everything i've read says Jamis's CS is top-notch, save for one report of someone getting treated poorly.
    for the price and the components, jamis is hard to beat.
    i've got a line on a 2011 Dakar Bam frame, so real soon now i'll be building my dh bike! can't wait!
