    Just ordered an '07 Dakota Elite - Any thoughts?

    Any thoughts on this bike? I just sold my '07 Spec FSR Expert because I wanted to go back to a hardtail. I haven't seen many reviews of the Dakota but it seem looks like a sweet ride! It was a toss up between that and the Stumpjumper comp. The Jamis was $75 cheaper and had a nicer fork so...

    Do we have a ride report on this yet. I am going to get one of these when I sell my XAM2.

    Man I could have swore that I replied to this. Well the bike is awesome. I'm really impressed with the drivetrain and brakes. It climbs good, and it is really fast on the singletrack and fast decents. For the price it can't be beat! I'm doing my first 12hr race on Sunday!

    Question for you, I purchased a dakota Comp a few weeks ago the ride is great with one exception. My seat post keeps moving 7 miles into a ride it moves 2 or 3 marks on the post. I am taking it back to LBS in a few days, just wondering if you have had the same problem?

    I did actually, I just made the clamp a bit tighter and it did the trick.

    use some Ritchey Liquid Torque or something similar. It's for carbon posts but works on alloy as well. (I use it on all my bikes and put it on new bikes that I sell)
