    Time to build a new ride, is this frame decent?

    im starting to get back into xc/ all mountain again and need a new bike.
    my khs fxt trail is crap apparently so ive been looking at parts for a new build.

    this frame has a low price tag and all the features i want, is it any good?

    looks like a great frame to me, should i pull the trigger?

    oh and weight doesent matter to me i just want something durable

    2008 has some issues. Read the Jamis forum on this board. That said, it's only available in small....

    Unless you plan on using chair lifts... maybe it should be called the Jamis Porker.
