    Sette Jamr

    Does anyone have any experience with the Jamr? I've been out of riding for awhile and so far the Jamr looks to be the best bike for my price range which is around $1300. Any input would be great. Thanks.

    No one has one of these yet? It's a pretty nice looking bike.

    I bought a Jamr in mid-august and just finished putting it through a full 7-week, over 200-mile collegiate race season. I was on it every day for at least 2 hours, with weekend multi-race days having saddle time in excess of 4 hours. Long story short it held up with few complaints for the entire season. Only thing I had to do was bleed the brakes and replace the pads at the end of the season.
    The positives of this bike are endless. Solid feel overall, great value for the components, stock setup can handle whatever XC course you can throw at it (I spent about 6 hours in-saddle in Copper Harbor, MI and didn't so much as slip a chain).
    My only complaint about this bike would be the out-of-the-box shifting, especially in the front. I had to click it up then give it a little extra every up-shift in the front, and sometimes it would refuse to downshift in the back unless I clicked down 2 then up 1. A trip to the bike shop fixed that for cheap, though.

    Hope this helped.

    new Jamr

    Just got this Jamr for my wife(16.5" frame) for a hair over $1K new,
    the bike came double boxed and wrapped very good and bubble wrapped. I've built hundreds of bikes from lots of manufacturers from my old LBS job and this was the best packing job I've seen to date.

    I put on a DJ stem and put on a nonramped 32T chainring/bashguard/jumpstop, removed front derailer/shifter. 23lbs on the park scale

    It shifted perfect out of the box. It's a good bike for a good price.
