    Dakar XCR Comp questions

    If you have one do you like it? How is the manitu front fork? I'm not familiar with their prodcts. Would you recommend one over a kona king kikapu? I know I'm in a Jamis forum but be honest.

    I think the XCR frame/suspension design is superior, especially the '07 re-design w/ the torsion bar. I have the Expert and love it! I also think Jamis has Kona beat on the specs.....Jamis has better front hub, cockpit parts, shifters, rims, and headset. The MSRP on the Jamis is lower as well....find a shop in a good mood and you could get the Jamis for $1750.
