Jamis Trail X2 Mountain Bike Review

This is a quick overview of the 2013 Jamis Trail X2 bike that I just bought. It provides good value, with decent components and good price on sale.

I have the jamis x1….. I should have gotten the x2 but…. the x1 does have the forks for disc breaks….

David Parker says:

I am planning on buying this bike soon. What do you think about? Can you do a follow up review?

LoveMTB says:

It should be covered under warranty. No issue with mine, and I’ve been doing quite a bit of single track w/ it, meaning quite a bit of shifting. Only issue I had were the rims, not true after a couple of rides. Got that taken care of and they are still true after about 100km of banging around.

had an x2 for a few months and ride 3-4 times a week off road!!! changed the pedals instantly as there nasty cheap things and changed tyres for continental mountain kings with slime innertubes as kept getting puntures. since changing the bikes been amazing and NO faults whatsoever… bike was purchased from Evans and was set up perfectly, delivered on time and so far would highly recommend!!!!

LoveMTB says:

sorry, not sure what you call the hangar. Tektro brakes are ok, but I replaced mine with Avid BB7 before braking them in so I do not have a good comparison between the two. BB7s are very strong.

Only complaints i’ve had with my Jamis X1; Front derailleur isn’t the best, but it isn’t terrible. Seat is pretty good, but i wish it was better. And the plastic pedals it came with weren’t terrible in my opinion, but i did replace them with aluminum ones.

vapnmtnbikr says:

i know this vid is a few years old but all bike companies should not put those cheap plastic pedals on their bikes,pure garbage and a liability issue

Quade Smith says:

I have an x1 and it has so much travel and the pedals are…also pieces of crap

LoveMTB says:

After quite a bit of trail,single track, I still love it. Only issue that I had was with the real wheel that came untrue, but it was a very easy fix. (red 3.5mm spoke wrench). I replaced the brakes with Avid BB7s +G2 disks (fibica_store on ebay) for almost the price that I sold the Tektro as a kit, and replaced the grips (personal preference). New tires – Kenda Claw XT (26″, 2.1).

Hi mevnet!
I bought the same bike, and I have problem. Front derailleur cable tear in 2 month because of design of derailleur. Is it good at your bike?

Happy Gorilla says:

Has anyone had any issues aside from the pedals? I have never heard for this brand am thinking of buying one for something different to the other mainstream brands. I have owned Hybrid/ MTB/ Mountain bikes like DB, Trek, Scott before but also a Polygon Cozmic which was a awesome cheap bike with all the bells and whistles. I travel alot so i buy them and sell when i have to move but any info would be good guys.

Muzafar Aleme says:

I bought this bike for $90 on Craigslist

Б Александр says:

Is is covered under warranty, but bringing bike for warranty repair every 2 month – is not good. Maybe cable tears because I often switch gears between 2-nd and 3-rd.
