 after picking up this bike today and after a day testing it down at the local skate park and down hill track IVE COME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT JAMIS KNOW HOW TO MAKE A QUALITY PRODUCT

it feels comfortable in the air and smooth on the trail only negative thing to say about it is the rst fork but i was expecting this once i get the money together i will be exchanging them for a marzocchi item more then likely the 66 series .

but....... other then that good buy for the money recommand it to anyone on a budget

 Bike performs beautifully, in the air and on the trail. The first RST forks broke, but they were under warranty and replaced with an upgrade no extra charge. Front wheel is so far rotated that it takes a little bit of time to get used to, but once you do this bike responds like an extra leg.

 I've had it for about a year so far. The forks are terrible, brakes aren't too good, seat is ugly, rear hub died, both derailers broke. But I love it so much because of it's potential as a great freeride hardtail. I've replaced a lot of parts and put a lot of money into it. Other than the frame the only original parts are tires, crankset, and stem. I recommend this bike to a beginner who wants to get into freeriding and downhill, expect to replace some parts and expect the forks to absolutely suck. Check my profile to see what I've done with it.

 Great beginner's bike. Have had mine for 4 years. Its a heavy duty hardtail. I have cased 5ft jumps on the thing and haven't bent the stock rims. Just broke a derailler hanger on a twig, but im sure ive bashed it on other things. Solid frame. components are cheap but they get the job done. It's a little heavy but i do not mind. Front fork is made for large jump impacts, and thats about it. Rear geometry is tight. you can fit 2.4 in tires on it

 such a burly hardtail frame! the forks suck and the wheels are super lightweight, but warped easy. i traded em for some sun ditch witch rims. lots of weight gain, but definitely worth it. The components are pretty good. i converted to ss and it's perfect like that. pedals are super grippy and love how low profile they are. tires grip anything until it gets super muddy. brakes work. i can't get over the strength in the chainstays. definitely the sstrongest frame i've ridden. i'd recommend it to anyone

 Nice bike that I have owned for about 3 years. I jump it and ride it on pump tracks. I have taken it on trail and all mountain rides but, wouldn't recommend it for that. The bike looks much hotter i person than in the photos.

 Great Bike!!! the frame is stiff and confortable for AM or FR use, good geometry. ISCG05 tabs. The stock components are far from being as good as the frame, but it worths to be upgraded (fork first if you can afford it)

Jamis Komodo I (MSRP $675) — These bikes are built to fly, our own two-wheeled air force. Agility. Flickability. Durability. That’s what our pros wanted more of from the Komodo. And that’s what we gave them, carving material from the stout rear triangle, shaving a full 15mm off the chainstay length, tucking that rear wheel in tight for faster response on the ground and greater control in the air. These are bikes that you can ride to the local jump spot, huck ’em hard, punish them, and just know you’ll be riding them home at the end of the day.
