So new to riding, thought a full suspension was out of my price range so have been looking at HTs exclusively.
Was deciding between a new '06 Jamis Exile w/ R7 fork ($1500 NZ) and '06 Keewee Kuga ($1200 NZ) (Help! I can't decide... when along came a used '05 Dakar Comp XC at $1200 NZ.
So, wondering if what people thing about the Dakar vs the Exile, clearly diff bikes. I'm going to be doing mostly XC riding, hoping to eventually race and this threw a wrench in the whole decision.
Any happy owners out there want to chime in?
Edit: PS, does anyone know if the geometry of Dakar's has changed significantly between '05 and '07? I can ride a '07 Dakar locally ...
Also, the bike I'm looking at: http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/List...x?id=101036748
