    Who has better frame or just the same thing?

    Ok just looking at frames and not considering parts. What is difference between a Jamis Dragon 853 and the Rock mt blizzard 853 frame. I know this yr jamis has 3 different models of the dragon and Rocky is just selling the frame. Both are reynolds 853 both are good companies so which one would you get if all you were doing was XC riding? No hucking, jumping, urban riding.

    Well, I will assume both are using heat treated cro-mo stays (853 frames refer to the three main tubes ONLY). Jamis says they do...RM doesn't mention it.

    Both are very good frames

    The Jamis has a slightly longer top tube and a slightly steeper headtube angle (in the 19 and 21 inch sizes) which would make it a little more "racey". The RM has a little more standover.

    I think the Jamis offers a better deal and it would probably be what I would buy
