    Jamis Dakar XLT 1.0 Bike Rebuild... What do you think?

    This is the Jamis Dakar that I picked up and it's been completely rebuilt from ground up. Frame was soda blasted and powder coated, all new custom graphics, new bearings, cables, wheels, stem, bars, seat, post, crank, bottom bracket, grips, tires, chain, cassette. It's been a fun project. Now with this bike complete what is your opinion on the value if I were to sell it? Just looking for some insight. Here is a list of parts.

    - New Vuelta Handmade Double wall wheels, sealed, black spokes, stainless nipples
    - New Kenda Nevagal Tires
    - New Chain
    - New Bontrager Seat
    - New Bontrager Seat Post
    - New Selcof Bars
    - New Selcof Stem
    - New Cube Lock on Grips
    - New Rear Cassette
    - New Bottom Bracket
    - Newer Shimano SLX Crankset
    - New Discs
    - New Wellgo sealed pedals

    - Fox 32 Float R Front Forks
    - Manatou Swinger 3-way Rear Shock
    - Hayes Nine Hydrolic Brakes
    - Shimano Deore Front
    - Shimano Deore XT Rear

    This is the day I got the bike.

    Nice job on the rebuild. Projects like that are great and that turned out pretty sweet. Now go ride it and let us know how it rides!

    Wow! Very nice work! Doesn't even look like the same bike! The white parts make it look super clean so time to go get it dirty. Its a keeper. Don't sell it.
    I'm thinking about shreddin' it up right now!

    Well I originally planned to ride it but I have an opportunity to also buy a New Cannondale Jekyll 5 so I'm debating
