    Jamis Icon

    I am picking up my new Icon Elite tomorrow. Anybody else who has had this bike a while care to share their thoughts?

    I don't own one but I've ridden it. Incredibly fast and responsive but the Icon Elite was like riding a brick. It was stiff to point of being uncomfortable to me but I'm not looking to race. I would imagine that it makes a great crit bike.

    I don't find it "stiff" to the point where it's uncomfortable. I like alloy bikes though. Own a Fuji Roubaix 1.1 which s alloy, and previously owned a alloy Cannondale Synapse.

    My carbon Cannondale Evo is more compliant, but specs for the price, the Jamis wins hands down. Way better value than a CAAD10/CAAD12, r Specialized Allez.

    I am really loving it, great job Jamis Getting the 2015 on closeout price was awesome.

    I own a Jamis mountain bike and a Jamis fat bike. The Icon wasn't for me but not every bike suits every rider. No once tried a carbon Colnago that was so stiff that it felt like A stone bench. CAAD 10 and Allez don't suit me either but the aluminum BMC I ride fits great. It's all personal preference

    I totally agree with you about the value. Incredible bang for the buck. Jamis is a great brand.
