Jamis Dakar XCT Race Mountain Bike 2012

Jamis bicycles has a long history of innovating revolutionary bikes that 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 innovation hasn’t stopped at Jamis, but merely shifted focus. Today Jamis develops and produces top of the line road and mountain bikes. Leveraging over 30 years of experience, Jamis is able to craft race driven performance machines with trickle down for the average rider as well. Jamis has a goal to build the perfect bike, what seems like an impossible goal. To Jamis, it’s the only one worth pursuing.

The Jamis Dakar XCT Race is no exception to Jamis’ quest to build the perfect bike. Jamis takes advantage of proven technologies when crafting their frames. The Kinesium Alloy frame is no exception. Boasting 130mm travel with the mp4 linkage system, the XCT race is super stable and performance driven. The tapered headtube allows for a stiffer front end and thus a more responsive and stable ride. Asymmetrical chainstay, cartridge bearing pivots, and a Fox Shox RP2 XV shock with boost valve & 10mm hardware round out the features that make this frame great.

A great suspension platform is what counts in a truly fantastic full suspension bike. The Jamis Dakar XCT Race is outfitted with Fox Racing Shox fork and rear shock. Fox has been an industry leader in suspension technology for many years. Fox has repeatedly set new standards for quality and how suspension works. The fork is a Fox 32 FRL with a FIT damper and features external rebound damping, lever actuated lock out, 32mm stanchions for increased stiffness, 15mm through axle, a tapered alloy steerer, and 140mm of travel. The rear shock is a Fox Shox RP2 XV with boost valve. This rear shock boasts 130mm of travel and can take nearly anything you can throw at it.

A good component build can make or break a bike. Jamis didn't cut any corners with the Dakar XCT Race. A rock-solid SRAM 2x10 drivetrain keeps you cranking along smoothly and efficiently. A set of X7 shifters control the X7 front derailleur and X9 rear derailleur, ensuring shifting is fast and smooth. A SRAM S1000 2x10 crankset delivers all the power you need and Avid Elixir 3 brakes make it possible to stop at a moment's notice. A well-appointed Ritchey cockpit puts the finishing touches on the Jamis Dakar XCT Race.

Comments about Jamis Bicycles Jamis Dakar XCT Race Mountain Bike 2012:

Jamis made a great frame but the components could have been paired up with the bike a lot better. Where I ride is very rocky and scraped a bit on the chunky rocky sections. I guess I'm to "enduro"lol!!but the rear derailler could have been mid. The 90s called said they wanted there stem back. Again lol !!! Too long. But good bike for the beginner or biker on a budget( if on sAle)!!

Comments about Jamis Bicycles Jamis Dakar XCT Race Mountain Bike 2012:

I've put about 100 miles on this bike since I bought it. I saw a review on here for the same bike that was not fair at all. This bike is fantastic, and I can't get enough. It looks good too! It might be a bit on the heavy side, but nothing too bad. It's taken some hits but has handled them all well. This bike is not intended for big air, but I've found that it is pretty fun to jump.

    The geometry feels good. Responds nicely. Not too heavy and fast. A lockout feature on the rear suspension would have been perfect, but other than that its nice.

    Comments about Jamis Bicycles Jamis Dakar XCT Race Mountain Bike 2012:

    I bought this bike a last summer, since then the rear triangle has broke TWICE! jamis did replace it with the lifetime warrenty however the frame shouldnt have broken at all. The rear derailer on it after a weekend of riding was already worn and had to be replaced, the brakes are aweful as Avid knows they have had many problems with the 3s and are still having those problems. the front thru axel snapped in half on me during a race (Fox 15mm). I wouldnt recommend Jamis to anyone looking for a serious bike its an amatures company and i will NEVER be purchasing another one. NOTE: I also have a yeti which i love and highly recommend and specialized epic again very well built bike!
