    2009 Jamis Dakar XCT 1.0 on eBay

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...TRK:MEBOFFX:IT

    I'm looking for a new bike to replace my current Haro V3 Hardtail. Do you guys think this would be a good deal if I could get it for about $700 shipped? Also, does 17" seem right for me being 5' 10"? My current Haro is 17" and it's the right size, but I didn't know if Jamis is different or not.

    Once I buy all the other parts it's not going to be cheaper, though. Right? I wouldn't really know what all to buy either.

    No, my current bike has crappy components and they're extremely torn up - my bike has over 2000 miles on it and a lot of that is mountain biking.

    I originally saw the model on JensonUSA so I looked it up on eBay and found this one. The bike in the eBay listing is for the whole bike. He claims that he hasn't ridden it much and bought it about a year ago. I asked him for some close up pictures so I'll post those up when he sends them to me.

    Yeah, it looks like a great bike. He also upgraded the rear shock to a Rock Shox Ario 3.2 ($175) versus the original Rock Shox Bar 2.1 ($105).

    What size is your bike and how tall are you? I'm just trying to make sure this thing is the right size.

    I looked at the size chart and I'm the right size for it pretty much.

    I didn't end up getting it. I offered $620 but someone else offered $710 at the last moment. It's too bad because I was really keen on getting it. I'm sure something else will pop up sometime. I could just get it new on JensonUSA for $1050, but I would rather pay a bit less.

    I'm a little over 6' and on a 19" frame and wish I would've went the next size down. Comfortable climbing but difficult to "detach" myself from the bike on the descents. Other than that I"m very pleased with the bike. With some upgrades it will become a very worthy trail bike.

    I was going to buy that frame from Jenson, and still want to. But since I have to upgrade the hard tail I can't afford to do both. Sad face. If I get the frame it will sit till I can build it and I will be stuck with two bikes I can't ride this year! A 17" should be perfect for you. The XCT with a higher end build with 5" forks will make the perfect All mountain bike. That frame is so nice that I am tempted to ride the Giant with the worn out drive train and buy it anyway! It would have to sit for a year till I could build it up with high end componants though. It must come with a crappy build to sell for $1050.

    I just bought the 19" Jamis XCT 1.0 frame on Jenson for $400.00 and I love the hell out of it. You cant go wrong with this frame. I posted pics. All the compontents came off another Jamis I have. I am 6' 2" and the 19" is perfect for me.

    I am actually surprised with the shock after reading all the bad reviews on it. It works good enough to get me by till I have some extra dough to upgrade. I was thinking it was gonna suck really bad with terrible pedal bob but it is holding its own. I have yet to see how durable it is, I have only hit the trails 3 times so far. I am a Fox rear shocks guy so I will eventually get a Fox simply because that is what I like. But the RS Bar 2.1 I would say is average.

    I have bad new and good news, bad news is my XCT pictured above broke, the frame cracked at the seat tube and rear shock bell. It cracked about 75% around starting at the weld and going around seat tube. The good news is Jamis is sending me a New 2011 XCT and its on its way, I cant wait.

    I am not sure how it broke, I did not hear or feel when it happened. I just decided to detail my bike one day and BOOM...... I saw the crack. My heart broke for I knew our relationship was over! lmno

    I am pretty sure this is why Jamis has changed their suspension set up for 2011, I have heard from the Horses mouth "Jamis" that they have been breaking at this spot, the XCT and the XCR's.

    Yeah, that makes sense seeing how they did change the design to a more tested one. I was at a Sportchek the other day and they had the new XCT 1 and 2, and man, they are some good looking bikes.

    Make sure to post some pictures up once you get the frame and get it put together. I can't wait to hear about it.

    I just got it today, it looks awesome, it will take a few weeks to put it together because the headtube is a tapered one and I am getting another fork for it and the rear wheel is now a 12mm x 135mm maxle. It looks alot tougher. I will put pics up of frame as soon as I get them up loaded.

    That looks sweet!

    Just wondering, how much extra have you had to spend to get it all together since you couldn't use all of your previous parts?

    Actually the only thing I could not use was the rear wheel because the axle is now 12mm. All the component from my 09 XCT I used on a frame I had purchased awhile back. It is a new old stock 2004 KHS Freeride 2000. I can post pics later if you wanna see it.

    Oh, ok, that's not too bad. So the fork fits on their as well? I wouldn't mind seeing the other bike as well.

    The fork fit with a crown race reducer. The new Jamis headset is for a 1.5 to 1 1/8 tapered fork but they sale reducers to use the 1 1/8" forks. I went with this because right now the tapered tube forks are a hot item and are very I mean very expensive for a name brand fork and I don't want to go in that deep in my pockets for a fork. I will give it a little while and they will be plenty on Ebay. I will see if I can post pics of the KHS soon.

    Thanks, and yeah Easton does have some serious eye candy...haha but unfortunately they are also budget busters maybe in the future I will upgrade to something like that for now I will be riding Mavics but I am thinking of stripping all the stickers from the wheel so give more of a stealthy look. I am not sure yet though.

    I would do the same. It would be kind of crazy to have to buy a new fork right away just to use the frame.

    Just ordered the 2010 XCT 1.0 from Jenson yesterday. The price is up to around $1,000 now but I still think it's a great deal. Hopefully they've solved the rear shock wobble i've been reading about but also hoping my XCT won't develop a cracked frame.

    Its just a tad heavier then the 09 Jamis I had but it rides excellent. I am really happy with this bike as well. I have no intentions of getting rid of it. I hate to say it but it seems to be built a little more rugged then the Jamis, its heavier but its definately tough!!!!

    Make sure you register your bike at Jamis website in the warranty dept. and at Jamis defense they sent me a 2011 frame that is bad ass. I was not expecting them to go that far. One more thing, for warranty purposes they wanted me to cut my 09 XCT in half to avoid having to ship it back. When I cut it I noticed that where the seat tube broke the whoever "welded/fabricated" went crazy with the honing on the inside. The wall of the tube was thinner there then in the rest of the tube. They must have had too much weld build up on the inside so they ran a machine down the tube to clean up the mess and left the wall too thin. I am confident thats why it cracked. I am a welder fabricator by trade and am all too familiar with these type of hick ups. That being said I think that not all frames are going to be faulty. Just every now and again there will be one that has thay problem. Good luck and enjoy it, I loved mine while it lasted. I have yet to ride the 2011, I am almost done with the build up.

    I wouldn't worry too much unless you're really heavy. I am light at 145ish, but I have done some pretty good jumps with it and just beat the crap out of it in general and it's still doing great. Plus, like Marty said, Jamis' warranty department is great.

    Hello everyone,

    I'm thinking about buying this bike a 2011 Jamis XCT 1.0. It look really nice and the weight is just a tad heavier than the $2,800 Trek Fuel EX 8, probably with some new lighter wheels and tires I can get it down to 28lbs and under.

    Does anyone have any other updated info before I decide on buying this bike that may sway my decision. It sells for around $1,500 but I think I can pick one up for 20% less brand new.

    Any suggestion appreciated, thanks.

    I have the 2011 XCT 2.0 and its an awesome machine. I bought just the frame though so its a custom ride.

    Thanks for the info, I just noticed the XCT 1.0 is a 9 speed and the XCT 2.0 is a 10 speed cassette. That's a big difference especially on the incline where efficient gear ratio is needed.

    So now I'm guessing the XCT 2.0 or maybe a Trek Fuel EX 6 to try and stay within my budget.

    Cheers.
