Jamis Dragon 29 Sport – 2013 Editor’s Choice Award

Bicycling Magazine just gave the 2013 Jamis Dragon 29 Sport an Editors' Choice Award for Best Value Hardtail. We are now doubly-excited to have one in stock. To quote their review: All three bikes in this category had spirited rides. But the Jamis rode away from the pack, thanks to its steel frame that took the edge off rocks, ruts and other trail obstacles. We didn’t expect to find such a damped, refined ride on a bike at this price. “It rode like it cost much more,” said one tester. We agree...
