Jamis Dakar XC Comp 2012

Jamis bicycles has a long history of innovating revolutionary bikes. This dates all the way back to 1979 with the introduction of the Earth Cruiser. The Earth Cruiser helped to spark the beach cruiser revolution. This revolution hasn’t stopped with Jamis, merely shifted focus. Today Jamis develops and produces top of the line Road and Mountain bikes. Leveraging their 30+ years of experience, Jamis is able to craft Race driven performance with trickle down for the average rider as well. Jamis has a goal to build the perfect bike, an impossible goal. To Jamis, it’s the only one worth doing.

The Jamis Dakar XC Comp is no exception to Jamis’ quest to build the perfect bike. Jamis takes advantage of proven technologies when crafting their frames. The 7005 Aluminum frame is no exception. Boasting 100mm travel with the mp4 linkage system, the XC Comp is super stable and performance driven. Asymmetrical chainstay, cartridge bearing pivots, and a Rock Shox Ario R air shock with rebound damping round up the features that make this frame great.

A good component build is what makes or breaks a bike. The fork outfitted on this XC Comp is the Rock Shox Silver TK Coil. This fork features magnesium lowers, 32mm stanchions, and 100mm of travel, and turnkey lock out. Drivetrain is just as important as anything else, so it makes sense that Jamis has selected Sram drivetrain. A SRAM X9 rear derailleur is matched up with a SRAM X7 front derailleur. Shifters a very vital as well, so it makes sense that Jamis selected the X7 10 speed trigger shifters with matchmaker. All of these components work in conjunction with the SRAM S1000 GXP crankset. This 3x10 drivetrain saves weight while offering a more versatile gear set.

      This bike rolls fast, climbs great, brakes and shifting are excellent too! I'm 52 years old and the full suspension soaks up the rough stuff so I can ride a lot further before my wrist and knees start to hurt.Very happy with this purchase.

        I use the bike for riding back trails, mountains, and later this year some commuting to work. It is my first full suspension bike and I really like it. I was concerned about the wieght, but it hasn't been an issue so far. The bike was a great value and I haven't had any real problems in the first 200 miles on it.

          bought this bike as a training bike and for light duties, i was impressed with the quality and ride quality of this bike it has become my every day bike. Components are great, only thing im still dont bite is the fork, but for the price you can afford to upgrade in the future and still keeps being a good deal.

            Over the past few months I decided to get back into Mountain Biking. I have broken three cheap mountain bikes and knew I needed to upgrade, but had a budget. Great components for the price. I have already put this bike through some serious, varied terrain. It has been awesome and handled everything thrown at it. I can't believe how quite everything is on the bike in the roughest, bumpiest of environments.

            This bike is fast! I have a 29er and another 26 inch mtb. They don't come close to this beast!
            This is my first full suspension bike. If you need more comfort or speed, this is the one for you!

              I plan using this bike for everything. So far all is well. Just arrived today. Easy setup and assembly. First full suspension bike and first non-shimano bike. This is my upgrade from my Yakota Quicksilver '95. Very happy so far. Will update after some time in the saddle.
