The Jamis Dakota D29 Pro is a solid race-ready 29er carbon hardtail. Whether you’re a weekend warrior exploring the wilderness, or a cross country racer itching to tack on the mileage and elevation gain, the Jamis Dakota D29 Team will take care of you. The Dakota D29 Team is comprised of high modulus carbon fiber. The Dyad XC Ultra fiber lay-up makes for an insanely stiff core for awesome power transfer. By nature, carbon is more forgiving than aluminum, therefore you’ll notice that harsh bumps are mellowed and rides are quite a bit more comfortable. Jamis reworked their frames in order to incorporate a press- fit BB30. BB30 offers many great benefits including simple installation, improved bearing to shell interface, and greater stiffness. Up front, Jamis incorporated a tapered head tube. A tapered head tube makes for a stiffer front end for more control and less fork deflection. As you torque up a monstrous hill, you won’t find any flex. Choose your lines and motor through them!
The Jamis Dakota D29 Pro was built with high end components with an eye on worth. To start, the Rock Shox Reba RLT29 fork features 100mm of bump gobbling front-end suspension. Rock Shox is no stranger in the cycling industry for creating ultra plush, reliable suspension components. The Reba RLT29 features a remote lockout, so no more showing off your lower back when locking out your fork. External rebound & low-speed-compression-to-”lock” allow quick, effortless adaptability to the erratic terrain. SRAM X9 shifters communicate efficiently with the SRAM X9 derailleurs. Twenty brilliant gear ratios will provide a plethora of options for the ups and downs of the trail. Avid Elixir 3 hydraulic disc brakes will bring you to a speedy halt once it’s time to pack it up for the day. Elixir 3 brakes are fearless and offer superior power modulation. Avid brakes are extremely easy to adjust as well. Other goodies include a WTB Silverado Race saddle with chromoly rails, WTB Speed TCS wheels, and a Ritchey cockpit.
The Jamis Dakota D29 Pro delivers formidable blend of race-day aggression and escapism comfort. The high modulus carbon frame in conjunction with performance grade components, and winning geometry make this an able-bodied cross country mountain bike. Weighing just 23 pounds, the Dakota D29 Pro won’t hold you back on the climbs, while its big 29” hoops bring confidence on the way down.

Comments about Jamis Bicycles Jamis Dakota D29 Pro Bike 2011:
Love the bike but what is the deal all the time now with the wide handlebars on trail bikes? I think they make a rider look like they're driving a bus and I need to squeeze by trees far more often than I need the extra leverage or to practice my Spiderman pose. Other than that it's spot on for x-country riding, agile as a 26er on climbs, noticeably more compliant over small bumps than other bikes I have (without the least bit of noodling), and point and shoot downhilling that's only matched by a couple of my longer wheelbase bikes. I'll cut 80mm off the handlebar and add a 42t chainring and it'll be race-ready.
