    Good job! Thumbs-up to Jamis

    I've long admired the fact that a company like Jamis put out a great handling steel bike. I really didn't agree with the kit, but the pricing was right, and after talking with their people this past season, admire the fact, that in more than one way, my (and probably a few other's) input was listened to.

    The Exile SingleSpeed!!

    Horizontal dropouts, removable derailleur hanger tugs, removable cable stops, something NOT RED and around $1000.00, with a decent kit, that you could build upon. Now, this isn't something you're "supposed" to take out and beat upon (of course I do that a bit on my Surly), but it has great potential!! Throw some higher level hydros and a better fork on there, and it's one sick possibility for the trails, pump and BMX tracks!!

    ~Even better, for those taller peeps, it comes in a 29'er version!!

    Schweeetttt!!

    Out of curiousity, why do you say that? I know Surly's are pretty beefy compared to most bikes, but I can't imagine these bikes being fragile.

    ... and if we just ...

    **Guess I should've been monitoring this thread back then, my bad...

    Point is it isn't fragile, just in the eyes of a bike companies insurance and liability lawyers. The one I rode honestly wasn't as nice as my Surly, but if I was on a budget, and interested in something to build upon, this one would end up on the first to get.

    **Now if only Specialized would get the hint!!!
    (as I cc this to our rep!!)
