Picked this frame up in a straight swap with another RB'er. Always liked the Jamis brand, always thought of them has being a bit of a rarity on these shores, bitd. I want to build it up with an M730 group, when funds allow, but because i'm inpatient and want to ride it i've put it together with a selection of more modern parts. Just waiting on delivery of a seatpost that was ordered yesterday and an XT u-brake, courtesy of RB member 'Jamis Diablo'. How approriate. Will post some pics when she is completed. The wheels are going, by the way! :oops:

I've got some 6 speed wheels that came off of an 88' Jamis that you can have if you want them?
PM me if interested :wink:

I'm sorted for a u-brake thanks, and with regard to wheels, the bike is set up has 9 speed at the moment, but eventually i want to put a XT M730 grouppo on it, so will be looking for that level of kit. But has i say, when funds dictate. Thanks. :)

Lovely frame, miss mine now I see this one :cry:
I have a M730 group on the shelf, so if you got the funds, let me know.

May be interested in that gouppo when funds are available, providing you still have it then.
