    Looking for an opinion

    a little background. i usually am able to hit the trails about once a week and would like a nicer, lighter hardtail than what i have. i am considering going a couple of routes the first would be getting a new frame (voodoo wanga or soma groove) and fork (rs reba or similar) and transferring the rest from my current bike until i can afford to upgrade more or jensonusa.com has a great deal on a 07 dragon comp. i would like to deal locally but the price on the jamis is hard to ignore and since i have had great luck with my jamis roadie i would like to get another one. what are your guys thoughts?

    05 specialized hardrock pro


    89 trek 950 singletrack ss


    92 trek 950 singletrack


    and jamis content while i am pic whoring:

    Nice bike, that's for sure.

    But...you have three hardtails, maybe you should try the Parker they have there on sale...

    If your current bike rides okay, I would not bother upgrading the frame. You should just save he money towards the purchase of the bike you really want. Especially because getting a new frame can end of being expensive because you often run into incompatability issues like derailleur clamp size, seatpost size, fork travel and fork tube length.
