    2011 Jamis Dakar XC comp of 2011 Rocky Mountain Element Sport ?

    Hi,

    I can get a deal on both of these bikes.
    Looking for a full sus 100 to 120 mm for singletrack/cross country riding for my girlfriend: no jumps/drops
    I'm mainly interested in the differences between the frames (have parts lying around to upgrade): rear suspension effectiveness, overall frame quality, frame stiffness, ...

    Thx

    Both of them have dated Geo and very simple suspension designs. That being said, they both work great. The Jamis seems to be a little bit heavier and definitely feels stiff. I think the frame quality for both is pretty high.

    I would let the GF get on both of them and ride them both. Personally I like the RM over the Jamis.
