 I love this bike, i dont even dj, i ride really up down trails and some really steep dh sections that are really technical. wanted something in between xc and dh but still small so i can control it, and this is perfect. Even the suntour front derailleur (i have an 0Cool shifts perfectly so no complaints (plus i bought a spare off jenson for $3 lol)

 a bike well suited for slolem and slopestyle courses this bike gives a plush bottomless feel on drops and will still be snappy on corners and jumps. if you buy a built bike the brakes can fail quiete sudently so i would sujest swapping themout for elixers or the like.

 i love this bike. despite its hefty frame
it has a light snappy feel, mine is built from a frame so its much lighter than whats shown. it handles everything from
gates to freeride, def not a good xc choice tho unless occasionally, my fave right now

 This bike is awesome! Its short and snappy so great fun for jumps and fun stuff. But as soon as you want to go down hill just crank up the u-turn and your set! Its also good for all-mountain trail kind of stuff. Some people probably think its probably to heavy for that kind of stuff. But if your not fussed about weight then this bike is SICK!

 Great bike!
One big mistake is that the rear rotor is strong enough to brake the frame. Not kidding here, mine broke after a few years of riding so watch out for cracks near the rear disk! Got it welded and enforced, now it's good to go and I'm lovin' it! Wink

Jamis Parker II (MSRP $2850) — This year, we made it an even better, stronger jumper with beefier chainstays for strength and lower standover for more tail-whipping action. We boosted lateral stiffness with stout dropouts, a wider top tube pivot and new CNC’ed pivot hardware. You’ll feel every accelerating bit of it when pumping the pedals through transitions and over climbs. Parker II offers a single chainring drivetrain set-up, perfect for race day or slopestyle park riding. Parker I gets a double with e-13 SuperCharger bash guard to go anywhere, do anything. Both Parkers get adjustable-travel Rock Shox forks, so you can dial them down for racing the gates, then turn them loose for freeride stunting when you shed the number plate.
