    Jamis Parker 1.0 vs. Specialized SJ Comp?

    Looking to get back into biking after a 10+ year layoff. I was really into it in middle school and highschool but stopped after everyone started driving.

    My favorite types of trails to ride before were single track, with rocks/roots, etc. I want a bike that can do it all. I would assume to do more singletrack and down hill and technical stuff more than any type of prolonged uphill terrain.

    My friend that I used to ride with got an 07 Stumpjumper FSR elite. In my limited search thusfar, I really like the way the 07 Stumpjumper FSR Comp looks, as well as the ability to lock out the suspension etc. The Jamis Parker 1.0 is also a nice looking bike, but I no longer know anything about todays componenets etc. How do their suspension components compare?

    My friend also has a connection so if the bikes were only...say $400 apart in price which would you go with? Lets assume for the sake of arguement that both feel comfortable in terms of riding position/comfort etc. Are these two bikes at all comparable or would it be hands down to the stumpjumper.

    Personally I would go with the Jamis Parkerif I was to pic on your list.

    Off the list the IH MkIII with 5" travel will rock on the DH.

    Another sweet bike that can climb & decend feeling like it has more than 4" is the Asta.
