Still undecided about the mountain bike…

I still own my Jamis D29 even though I’ve spent months convincing myself I should sell it. Now the news comes that the trails at Lake Crabtree could be closed within the next couple of years. I brought it with me to ride today. Taking one more stab at making the 29er fun. Hell, I’m not even convinced the geometry of the bike is right for me despite various stem changes and bar layouts.

There is a hot Salsa Chili Con Corso cross frame on ebay right now for $449. It would be a sweet frame to build with spare parts I already own. I’d like to have flat bar and a drop bar cross bike. I could sell the Jamis and have money left over. But it is such a pain in the ass to sell and ship a bike.
