Unusual find!
-Steel Jamis DragonONE SS single speed,
-29r with cross-country geometry,
-approx 33" standover height, so definitely for a taller person,
-most likely from 2011 model year and sold only as a frameset, so a bit tricky to find info about it
-pumpkin in color, XL frame (21").
-Fully rigid.
-Reynolds 520 Chromoly frame, rear facing drop-outs.
-Currently geared for off-road success at Red Rock Canyon Open Space, so 34x22.
-Sun Rhyno Lite not-tubeless rims with Deore hubs.
-Maxxis Aggressor 2.5WT front tire, Conti Mountain King 2.4 (old pattern) rear. Both tires in good shape with another season or two on them. Tires are probably a bit aggressive (and heavy) for this bike, but help dampen the rigid ride.
-Avid BB7 brakes.
-Original off-white Jamis color band on downtube had some discoloration, so I did a custom paint job there that now matches the custom fork.
-Extremely fun bike to ride - like a big 29 inch wheeled BMX ride.
-Frame is not perfect - has some rock chips, etc that would be expected of a bike that has been ridden a lot, but there are no real dents; just one ding on the downtube, near the head tube, where the suspension fork I was running smacked the tube when I loaned it to a friend.
-It is possible to put a straight tube (non-tapered) suspension fork on here, with 80-100mm working well, although the frame is not suspension-corrected. I ran it with a 100mm Fox for a number of years. No suspension fork is included.

I've loved this bike and it's hard to see it go, but I wanted to try something different and the garage is too full now.

Let me know if you are interested. Text is best.

PLEASE do not waste my time or yours - I'm not interested in playing games, using codes, taking lowball offers, etc. Price is pretty fair for an unusual bike and I will NOT respond to offers before you have seen the bike in person. I'm a busy guy just trying to pass this bike to someone that is excited about it, so let's make this easy.

Thanks for looking! Chris
