Dragons are portrayed as fire breathing mythical creatures in countless fairytales. This is your opportunity to harness one. The Jamis Dragon was crafted from Reynolds 853 air- hardened steel, which provides an incredibly resilient ride. The Jamis Dragon is the mountain bike that built Jamis’ high- end reputation in their early years; the legend is still going strong. If you’re ready to convert to a set of big wheels, the Dragon 29 Race is a great option.

The Jamis Dragon 29 Race is built with a superior group of SRAM components. SRAM X.9 shifters clearly communicate with SRAM X.9 front and rear derailleurs for fast, snappy gear changes. The 2x10 gear system provides 20 intelligent gear ratios to handle variable terrain. Avid Elixir 3 hydraulic disc brakes bring you to a quick stop, once you’ve decided to pack it in for the day. The Manitou Tower Pro fork uses a MARS air spring with TPC Absolute Plus damping technology. Adjustable external rebound and compression to lockout adjust allow you to customize your suspension to your riding conditions. The 100mm of travel offers great small bump compliance and gobbles up large rocks. The WTB Silverado Comp saddle is super light and comfortable. The Syncros AM flat top stem and handlebar produce a rigid front end for excellent control. The Dragon’s proven geometry is both functional on the up hills and comfortable going down- hill.

    Comments about Jamis Bicycles Jamis Dragon 29 Race Mountain Bike 2012:

    Beautiful bike. Arrived quick. love the 853 frame. The geo is way better than my Bandersnatch.
    Great value. Jenson did drop the ball on the tune/build, brakes need bled bad. Front brake lever goes all the way to the bar before actuation. Not bled at all. Other than that I'm very happy with it.
    Bleed the brakes when you sell a bike advertised "Ready to ride" Mine was not.
