    Dear Jamis...

    No secret, I always have been and will continue to be a Komodo fanboi.

    The 2 best years for the Komodo have been 2008 and 2017. 2008 because you gave us the rifled to tube, 1.5 head tube, but kept the seat/chain stay supports. You also kept the 625mm ETT on the large frame.

    2017 shines because the plus sized options scream "gnarly"!! Woohoo!!


    My suggestion after being a dedicated Jamis supporter for so many years:

    Look at the top tubes on the Raleigh Tokul 4130, Diamondback Mason Plus, Surly Instigator 2.0

    Bring back the rifled to tube and 1.5HT.

    Why 1.5? Because options, that's why. Because nobody knows what the future holds for forks.

    Lastly...a 34mm tubed fork.

    So keep the latest geometry, keep the plus size options, add a rifled top tube and Fox 34 option...and maybe even 1.5.


    That, or give us a bent top tube on the Dragon slayer.


    Just a suggestion. Thanks for keeping it real for decades!
