Jamis Dakar AMT Mountain Bike 2012

A shapeshifter of sorts, the Jamis Dakar AMT blurs the lines between trail, all mountain enduro, and downhill riding. With the AMT, Jamis built a 150mm travel rig with progressive mp4 Trail suspension that makes it easy to efficiently ride uphill as well as aggressively downhill. The Jamis Dakar AMT has been described as “an XCT on steroids.” The AMT is surprisingly light weight (30lbs, size 17”) and amazingly competent due to the ribbed and boxed tubing shapes, tapered head tube, 10mm shock hardware, asymmetrical stays, and thru axles.

The heart of the AMT is the kinesium alloy frame which is both stiff and rugged yet tames trail vibrations like a champ thanks to 150mm of active travel, utilizing the mp4 linkage design. The Dakar AMT is outfitted with a RockShox suspension kit. The RockShox Lyrik RC Solo Air allows the rider to externally adjust rebound and low speed compression, for a truly customized ride. The RockShox Monarch Plus RC3 high volume rear shock rounds out the suspension package. Together the front and rear shock work together to provide a plush ride that will comfortably guide you up and over the mountain, all the way to grandmothers house. Sun Ringle Charger wheels are Stan's tubeless ready, and the strong, wide profile of the Charger rim helps keep the bike grounded, cornering responsive, and improves rolling resistance. The AMT features a rock-solid Shimano drivetrain. Shimano SLX shifters communicate almost telepathically to the Shimano SLX front and Shimano XT rear derailleurs, so gear shifts are fast and smooth! An SLX crank provides the power center for the AMT, delivering stroke after stroke of powerful pedal fury! Haye Prime Expert brakes provide the kind of control you need to tame quick descents and rocky terrain and the WTB Volt saddle delivers all manner of on-the-bike comfort, so you can ride harder and farther!

        Great bike, I really like it. The suspension is very smooth and it fits my riding style great. Components are great. My only complaint would be the terrible grips that come on it.

        I use the bike as an all round bike. Daily commuter and weekend mountain and singeltrack. Suspension adjustability make this possible. From plush trail setup to harder road action. It also comes with a 3x10 setup for faster road speed.

        An adjustable seat post is on my shopping list.

          Nice well spec'd bike. Climbs very well and excels downhill. However, very short in top tube with high stand over. Comes with excessively long stem for a bike in the all mountain category. If it fits you, go for it.

            I got a chance to test ride this bike at Deer Valley Utah and its sweet. Really active suspension works great with the rear shock. Throw a dropper post and a wider bar on this thing and it will replace your downhill and trail bike.
            Fun bike.
