    Jamis Dakota D29 Team VS Niner Air 9 Carbon

    Hey All,

    Mostly a stalker on here, but I am looking for some advice now. Will soon be pulling the trigger on a new 29er, and I am pretty sure I have narrowed the field down to two..the Jamis and the Niner.

    Besides the Niner being $300 bucks more and about a pound heaver...can anyone provide anything else that would help my decision.

    Thanks in advance.

    Good question. I'm looking at 29ers now, and considering a Jamis. There doesnt seem to be much info about them here on the 29er forum. Anyone own one? Anyone test one and decide against it?

    All I can offer is second hand. A buddy of mine had the Jamis, and no matter what he or his bike shop's mechanic tried, they couldn't eliminate the chain suck. He stripped the frame and built up a Air9 (scandium). No more chain suck.
