We recently received a supply of the Jamis Durango A2 and his little brother, the Trail X A2. We’re excited about these bikes since they make a very capable trail bike at a very reasonable price of $729. The specs are identical save the wheels. Durango – 29″, the Trail X – 27.5″. The big wheel gives you better roll-over and carries speed better. It’s a taller bike though and better suited for larger riders. Sizes medium – x-large.
The smaller 27.5″ wheel give you better standover clearance, makes the bike more maneuverable and overall smaller. Sizes small – medium is best. 2 x 8 drivetrain is simple but has a good overall range and the Shimano hydraulic brakes are stop-errific!
