Beginning my search for my 2015 crit bike and hoping for input. I know Jamis isnt a highly popular brand in the high end racing world, but this frame has gotten high remarks in the few reviews I've seen.
Came across a good deal at an LBS for a Jamis Icon frameset, and have 2 options:
2014 Icon Pro frameset (frame, fork, headset, seat collar etc)
or for $200 more a 2015 Icon Elite frameset (same parts included)
According to Jamis they both use the exact same frame (different paint scheme) and full carbon fork, however the Elite uses a different grade carbon and different layup to "slightly" reduce weight and increase stiffness.
Other options are the usual CAAD 10 and Allez e5 smartweld. Im leaning towards the Jamis based on the fact that its more of an unknown brand,and I like having bikes not everyone else has, and we know which brands those are.
So does anyone have any first hand experiences with this specific frame, if so what other bikes can you compare it to.
