Jamis Dakota D29 Pro Mountain Bike 2012

The Jamis Dakota D29 Team is the ultimate 29er carbon hardtail. Whether you’re a weekend warrior exploring the wilderness, or a cross country racer itching to get in mileage and climbs, the Jamis Dakota D29 Team will take care of you. The Dakota D29 Team is comprised of high modulous carbon fiber. The Dyad XC Ultra lay-up makes for a strong and rigid frame. By nature, carbon is more forgiving than aluminum, therefore you’ll notice that harsh bumps are mellowed and rides are quite comfortable. Jamis reworked their frames in order to incorporate a press- fit BB30. BB30 offers many great benefits including simple installation, improved bearing to shell interface, and greater durability. Up front, Jamis incorporated a tapered head tube. A tapered head tube makes for a stiffer front end for excellent control. As you torque up a monstrous hill, you won’t find any flex. You’ll maintain better all around control!

The Jamis Dakota D29 Pro was built with high end components with an eye on value. To start, a Fox F29 RL features 100mm of bump gobbling suspension. Fox is well known in the cycling industry for creating ultra plush, reliable suspension components. The F29 features a remote lockout, so no more exposing your lower back when locking out your fork. Adjustable rebound helps you to customize the fork for the ultimate ride. Shimano SLX shifters communication with a Shimano XT rear and Shimano SLX front derailleur. Thirty brilliant gear ratios will provide the solution to any terrain issue. Avid Elixir 5 hydraulic disc brakes will bring you to a speedy halt. Elixir 5 brakes are strong and offer superior modulation. Avid brakes are extremely easy to adjust as well. Other goodies include a WTB Silverado Comp saddle with satin rails, Sun/ Ringle Black Flag Expert wheels with Stan’s NoTubes technology.

The Jamis Dakota D29 is the ultimate bang for your buck. The high modulus carbon frame in conjunction with performance grade components, and winning geometry make this the ultimate cross country mountain bike. Weighing just 25 pounds, the Dakota D29 is a climbing beast. Spend your weekends on the mountains enjoying each climb just as much as the singletrack back down.

          I'm 6 foot and got the 19" based on the top tube length. The Standover is 33" which is right at my crotch so a bit diffent than other bikes I have ridden. Very nice bike with exceptional parts group for the price.

          Went for a long rough ride over the past weekend & put this bike through some paces, excellent performer all-around. Nice & light, very responsive frame geometry, smooth component group. The Bronze Build had everything so dialed in the brakes needed no adjustment and the front derailer was only about a quarter turn on one screw shy of perfect.

              Comments about Jamis Bicycles Jamis Dakota D29 Pro Mountain Bike 2012:

              Bike came very well packed & Bronze Build had the brakes dialed in without the need for adjustment. Everything about the bike was better than I expected, from the paint quality to the component mix. This bike is replacing an aluminum all XT 26r and my greatest concern in ordering online was the fit. The size chart is accurate and Jamis measures standover height from the lengthwise middle of the toptube, which was exactly where I needed it to be for my height. Great ride for the carbon frame, great fork. Nimble & lightweight. I am very happy with this one!!

                Amazing ride quality, perfect fit, and instant power transfer. You can really feel the bike scoot when you step on the pedals, and it is very smooth going down especially for a hardtail. This video helped seal it for me. Although they are reviewing the higher spec version, it is still applicable. This is a great bike.

                    I've been a Jamis fan for over 20 years and again was impressed with the quality of their product. This is a sweet bike with a nice complement of components. Lightweight, good handling, sharp looking. And if it's like my other Jamis it is sure to be ultra-reliable. The Bike Build was another nice touch that got me out of the box and onto the trails quick and easy.
