Hello, my name is Jeroen and I'm from Holland.
This is the bike I bought 2 years ago, with all original parts still on it.
It's now built up with new parts, but I'm looking for another frame, so I can built this one back to original.
This is the only photo in it's original state (and a crappy photo :wink: )
It's a Jamis El Diablo from '98 or '99, I'm not sure. I emailed Jamis the serialnr. but the don't know the year.
I hope it is retro enough to show here, but I've seen more bikes from '98...

It rides very good, the frame is extremely stiff, no twist at all.
With the single pivot and (even for those days) old Fox Alps there is quite some loss of energy, but with the rebound on almost max. it's o.k.
It's build for all mountain use and it works very good.
I replaced evrything except the frame for modern parts (Reba, DT Swiss 210, X.0, Juicy's, Mavic 717), but really want to build it back, because it's a bike you don't see every day.
I searched the internet for two years to find another one and only found one more on Ebay, so I think it is worth to save this one.
