Jamis bicycles has a long history of innovating revolutionary bikes. This dates all the way back to 1979, when Jamis introduced the Earth Cruiser. The Earth Cruiser helped to spark the beach cruiser revolution which has been a part of beach-city culture ever since. This revolution hasn’t stopped, Jamis has merely shifted focus to other forms of two wheeled machines. 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, as well as high quality trickle down products for the average rider. Jamis has a goal to build the perfect bike, which might be an impossible goal, however to Jamis, it’s the only one worth doing.
When you hear the term “entry-level” many assume it’s just another way of saying “low-end” or “affordable.” Being an “entry-level” mountain bike, only half is true about the Dakar XC Sport. Let us clarify. Now, it’s fact that the Dakar XC Sport is “affordable”, however it’s fiction that the Dakar XC Sport is “low end”. The tried-and-true mp2 suspension offer a genuine multi-link chassis with asymmetrical chainstays that present all the amenities of near-vertical wheel travel, suspension that remains agile and lively under power and braking, and a firmly planted rear track when the going gets steep and you’ve got to lay down the gauntlet. The 7005 aluminum tubes feature a gusseted down tube and asymmetrical chainstays that deliver unparalleled lateral and torsional stiffness letting you mash the pedals as you soar across the trail. A tapered head tube and steerer up front gives complete control and power over the violent terrain.
The Dakar XC Sport is suited with a component package that is reliable, yet won’t deplete your stash. The SR Suntour XCM HLO coil fork with 100mm of travel and external lockout is lightweight and efficient, balancing comfort, performance, and control. Equipped with a Shimano Alivio M430 front/rear derailleurs and shiftlevers, you get the same functioning of pricier group sets, only with a tad more weight. The Tekro Draco Hydraulic disc brakes with 160mm rotors will provide the stopping power you’ll need when plunging down a technical descent. The Dakar XC Sport is a fun, recreational build that will allow you to get to know the trail and its many joys!

I love the bike except for the brake fluid wasnt put in right so there are a lot of air bubbles but is easy to fix. also the pedal makes noise every once in a while
