Jamis Dakar XCR 29" Race Bike 2013

Jamis Dakar XCR 29" Race Bike 2013

The aptly named XCR stands for cross-country race, and that’s not something to take lightly. When it comes to connecting the dots from the starting gate to the finish line, there’s simply nothing faster than a Dakar XCR 29er. The Dakar XCR 29er is an impressive specimen of trailblazing XC race performance armed with the advantages of a full-suspension design. For the XC rider looking to push the limits of their riding past the edge of normal, the Dakar XCR gives you the tools to nurture your penchant for speed while conquering terrain you used to avoid on a traditional hardtail XC bike. Whether you're looking for a new bike to explore the stretches of your local trail system, or gearing up to dominate the regional race circuit, the Dakar XCR 29 is a versatile, drool-worthy rig that leaves nothing but a trail of dust and desire in it's wake.

The Dakar XCR 29 Race features a lightweight Kinesium triple-butted alloy main triangle for excellent stability and durability that stands up to the abuse of trail riding without excessive weight. For 2013, Jamis made a number of refinements to the Dakar XCR frame, including a sleeker, lightweight shock mount bracket, 12 x 142mm thru-axle dropouts for faster rear wheel installation and a new 3-piece welded main pivot yoke with 25% larger chainstays so the rear wheel tracks perfectly with the front. The Dakar XCR utilizes Jamis's fully-active mp4 XC suspension design, which has been optimized for cross-country performance, with travel narrowed down to a tautly sprung, hyper-efficient 100mm that delivers a slight rising leverage rate in the first 40% of travel, and then is linear though the next 60mm of travel for a firm, responsive pedaling platform that keeps that rear tire firmly planted for pedaling efficiency and grip, whether you’re forging ahead on a climb or stretching your lead on a descent. Suspension duties in the rear are handled by a Fox Float CTD shock (w/ Boost Valve) that tames bumps and sudden shocks with precision. The Dakar XCR's plush front-end comes courtesy of the Fox 32 Float 29 CTD fork. The Fox 32 Float 29's 15mm thru-axle and tapered alloy steerer offer a rock-solid front end that refuses to quit so you can keep cranking on down the trail, dominating rock gardens and clearing sketchy terrain without hassle.

Jamis outfits the Dakar XCR 29 Race with a sensible component package that is both economical and precise for no-compromise performance from the local trail to race day. The Shimano XT M785 Hollowtech crank is the power center of Race build. The XT M785 crank is paired with a Shimano XT Shadow rear derailleur and SLX front derailleur that are controlled by SLX shifters for crisp and responsive shifting that will inspire envy up and down the trail. The Dakar XCR 29 Race rolls on a set of WTB Frequency Race i19 TCS wheels wrapped in the grippy but fast Geax Saguaro tire for a combination that offers a classy blend of strength, weight savings, and trailblazing speed. WTB Frequency Race i19 TCS rims are ready to be set up tubeless if you choose, and of course, work just fine with traditional tubed tires if you're not ready to make the transition. Shimano SLX M675 hydraulic brakes give you all the power you need to stop on a dime or modulate braking when navigating a tricky section. Jamis decks out the cockpit with a WTB Volt Sport paired with a mix of Ritchey Comp handlebars, stem, and seatpost, ensuring that mission control is dialed and ready for blast-off.

very xc orientated.
If you want a bike that is very inclined to go up hills fast, this bike is right. Small bump sensitivity was great. I use mine for xc, where I think it is best. Although might be a bit heavy.

PROS: Durable

CONS: Heavy

Very nice
Good parts build, no problems , just the seat clamp if it was a quick release so adjustment with no tools. Other than that it's a very good ride with the MP4 suspension . You can feel after the first 40 % of travel the suspension gets linear for The next 60% as stated . Doesn't bob that much under hard pedal, it does as stated.

PROS: Durable
