    Let me try to do this by memory:

    xfusion velvet fork
    easton carbon bars
    syncros 70mm stem
    elixir cr brakes 160mm
    kcnc seatpost
    selle flite seat
    tubless rocket ron tires
    sun ringle black flag wheels
    sram xo carbon crankset
    sram x7 front derailleur
    sram xo rear derailleur
    sram x9 shifters
    salsa qr seat clamp
    crank brothers candy pedals
    peaty grips


    I think thats everything. The most amazing thing I've found about this bike that I've found so far is that it's dead silent even when ripping down rooty singletrack. The carbon fiber really dampens all sound. Its actually really cool. I've had two big get offs already and the bike still doesn't have a scratch so that's good. hopefully it will last.

    [QUOTE=mugen939;9607665]Finally finished building my new xct and figured I'd throw pics up. I haven't seen any pics of xct 4's in the wild. So far I love the bike, it's not ass efficient as my giant reign pedaling wise but I have no trouble topping any of my longer climbs that I did with my reign. And the weight is just insane. She sits at 21 lbs right now and I haven't even weenied it.



    Dude, 21 pounds is crazy!. Thats a sweet bike ya got there.

You can even shift while climbing without the horrible sounds that you have grown accustomed to hearing when shifting under pressure and the worry of throwing or breaking a chain is gone. The Fox Talas 36 sucks up ruts, rocks, jumps and whatever else you can throw at it and it just seems to absorb everything to provide you with a smooth descent. I am totally amazed at the build quality and how well Jamis did on this bike. It may not be a boutique bike name but the way I see it I have an awesome all mountain rig that is spec'ed out with top of the line components for less than a more recognized name with lesser components. Looking forward to getting her even dirtier than she already is.
    Nice bike man, you described it well.What rear derailleur are you using? I hate shifting on climbs and i feel like I'm stretching the chain and cracking the derailleur itself.

    Here's the build as she sits right now:

    Frame:
    7005 aluminum, 150mm travel mp3 linkage
    Fox RP23 shock
    12mm Maxle axle dropout

    Fork:
    Fox 36 Talas-RC2 with f.i.T. damper, external low & high-speed compression and rebound damping, 20mm thru axle, 36mm stanchions, 100 -130-160mm travel

    Components:
    Drivetrain: SRAM x.0 short-cage rear derailleur, x.0 Redwin trigger shifters with Matchmaker clamps
    Crankset: Truvativ hammerschmidt with Truvativ bash guard
    BB: Truvativ Hammerschmidt integrated
    Brakes: Avid Elixir CR hydraulic disc brakes, TaperBore lever with integrated reservoir, 185mm front & 160mm rear rotors
    Handlebar: Race Face Atlas
    Grips: Lizard Skin Peatey
    Stem: Race Face Atlas 50mm
    Seatpost: Crank Brothers Joplin
    Saddle: Syncros fL

    Wheelset:
    Mavic XM317 eyeletted disc rims, 32h
    Synchro FR disc hubs, 20mm thru-axle front and 12mm rear
    DT Swiss Champion 2.0mm stainless steel spokes

    Drivetrain remains completely stock from the way I bought it. They are blowing these things out at $2k each at Jensonusa.com. I highly recommend them if you are in the market for a new set of wheels at a deep discount.

    Lovely bike man. Nice little setup. Wondering if its because its a short cage?
    And Jenson sent me an email about a Jamis sale. They are selling the XCT 3 carbon bike for 21 hundred. Great deals out there now.

    Yea that dragon looks clean and simple but powerful also, haha. The XTR crank with the chain stay, and the white. It's brilliant.

    Very nice Dragon, any idea on the weight? I know its steel so its naturally heavy but this is one of the lightest looking chromo bikes I have seen.

    Very nice XCT, in fact if you would take off that ridiculous looking rear fender I would say it is the best I have ever seen!!!

    my former xct magically transformed into a xam2.
    upgrade order:
    brakes
    fork
    hubs depending on the fork...
    drivetrain {really want a hammerschmidt}
    I'll mix cheaper stuff in there here and there...

    Feels lighter. Well it did before I put the saddle bag on... I just found a DIY to slime prestas so I'm hoping I can ditch the bag once I slime my tubes. I know I know go tubeless. blah blah blah

    Haha your choice. I'm not tubeless. I'm to lazy to convert actually. If you have a camelbak just stick them in there.

    just bought a jamis dakar

    I found this forum while looking for a mtb in my price range to ride around campus, and this thread more or less sold me on a 2009(?) Jamis Dakar Sport ($150 off craigslist) took it straight to the LBS for a light go-over, got a new chain, getting a new rear derailleur cable today, and got the derailleurs adjusted. I dont know what fork is on it and i believe the rear shock is a fox, but the brakes are Avic and the shifters/derailleurs are Shimano Deore. i cant ID the wheels, and it needs some new odds and ends but i love the thing so far. it does seem to crosschain in a lot of gears though, is that a common thing? what do you suggest as my first upgrade? i was considering a bashguard and going down to just 2, maybe one chainring, but im really pretty new to biking and i dont know where to start

    i have pics, but my post count isnt high enough yet

    I would say ride it a while and see if there's any stand-out component that is failing or under-performing.

    Of not, then bling it out.

    Well a lot of why I was considering the bashring and using one chainring is to eliminate the chain rubbing on the front derailleur as much. I considered a different derailleur too but I don't know if that'd solve it. It's a deore xt right now which I understand is pretty high end

    You can adjust the front derailleur.

    Cross-chaining is user error, not equipment malfunction. If you're in the middle ring, you should be able to hit the whole cassette without rubbing. If you can't, it's out if adjustment. When you're in the granny, you should be able to hit "most" of the low cogs. In the big ring, "most" of the high cogs.

    It still wasn't shifting properly. It was shifting a lot better though. Today I went back for 2 new shift cables, the rear one was kinked and the front was missing a ferrule and not seated properly in one of the routing things. When they adjusted it all again afterwards, they still couldn't get it to stop cross chaining all over. They pointed out though that the front derailleur was aftermarket, and was too far out even fully adjusted to properly cover the chain rings. They actually took a rubber spacer out of the left side of theBB and put it on the right side (moved the chain rings out about 2mm from where they were, and after a little fine adjustment, it finally shifted properly with no cross chaining except at the extremes.

    Congrats on the new bike. Consider changing that saddle out if it gets to you, I had the same one on my Dragon and its squishy-ness got pretty uncomfortable on longer rides.

    Rides good. Put 20 miles on it yesterday and another 8 on some more technical stuff today in wet conditions. Saddle is suiting me fine for now. Only upgrade I am considering is the tires. Stock tires aren't that great in wet/muddy conditions. Other than that, it's awesome.

    2005 Jamis Dakota AL

    I snagged this frame on Ebay for $45.00, I stripped the old paint and sprayed this nice Ocean Blue metallic and brought her back to life.

    My new 2011 Jamis Durango 1.0 Femme 14".



    She was on sale from the dealer for $489.00 and it seemed like it had more bike for my budget versus other 2012 bikes in the $480 to $575 price scale.

    I've had it a few weeks and I'm very new at trail riding so it's only been out on easy trails. But I'm building up my skills and can't wait to take her out on the singletrack near me.

    The first things I'm swapping out on my bike are seat post, saddle and pedals. I'm impressed with the mechanical disc brakes versus v-brakes but I'm thinking of changing the Tektro IOs for BB7s. The fork and wheels will come later once I have a clue.

    The seat post bolt loosens too quickly and the saddle slides around. I've tightened the sucker like I hate it but the saddle still ends up wobbly. I have an Easton two bolt seat post I bought for $35 on my commuter bike and I'm thinking that one.

    Ahhh.
    I have had many seatposts over the years and the only one I've carried over from one bike to the next is my Thomson. It's pricey, but well worth the money. Easton makes a great one. Raceface posts are a sorry design. Mine was always noisy...even with grease. I chapped out once and bought a Kalloy Uno...big mistake.

    Nice ride.

    NIce bike, But you should post a pic of you with it

    Upgrade to BB7's for sure, They are as close to hydraulic disc brakes as you can get with cables. Well worth the money.

    Very nice. My sister is looking for a new bike and that would fit the bill pretty well. It's too bad there are no Jamis dealers where I live.

    2011 Dakar 650 B2

    2011 Jamis Dakar B2 pics
    Bought as leftover this year and it took me 6 months before had all the parts I needed and then finally put it together

    First, never cut a steerer before it's time. Still it's really long as I'm playing with stem height and length. It's a 12 degree 75mm Specialized stem with different shims that adjust it from +- 8 degrees to +- 16 degrees. Stock stem for my Large was 110mm

    Another Specialized item I borrowed is the Dangler chain guide I trimmed up to fit the Jamis. Works awesome and so quiet with almost 0 chain slap

    Answer Pro Taper Carbon 720mm bars, 1" rise with ODI Rouge Lock On grips. Stock bars were 670mm Brake levers are set up moto style from 30+ years of dirt biking

    Changed the stock 26/39 spider/rings to 24/38/bash. Jamis went this route for 13 on the Pro and most new 650B bikes are using this or 24/36. Works well for 650B size

    Race Face crank arm end protectors (and needed)

    Straitline pedals

    I put on the wheels from my Prophet (for our abusive conditions here) and save the stock for backup or for people to borrow and try out. Flow rear with Hadley hub, Pacenti TL28 front with Hope Pro 2 Evo hub. Both wheels build with Sapim triple butted spokes and 2.3" Neo Moto tires. Pretty bombproof.

    Lots of clear tape you can't see with the pearl white color, an extra piece of Lizzard Skin on the back of the swingarm and a piece of rubber fuel line to protect the RD cable from scrapes and damage

    ENJOY

    It comes stock with the Joplin dropper post (which the bike came with in 2011). Lever is pretty cool and works pushing it in any direction. I've seen people retro fit this lever to other dropper posts as it's simple and works.

    Also added this very nice Salsa seat clamp in red. I tried a blingy Crank Bros. QR clamp and it wouldn't hold no matter how tight I made it. The salsa is excellent.

    Just finished rebuild my wifes Parker. Powder coated the frame blue. Gave her my Vanilla RC( may need a tune though) and upgraded a few other parts. Still needs a longer fork but 130mm will do for now.

    My 2010 Jamis XC Sports

    Dear fellow members,

    Just wanna share my 2010 Jamis XC Sports which resides in tropical asia....Malaysia,

    Built from frame up recently and nothing is stock except frame and rear shock.

    -----Cockpit------
    - WTB riser + UNO stem + AMOEBA sealed bearing headset + WTB 4-front lock-on grip
    - KCNC set off seatpost + WTB Rocket V saddle

    ------Drivetrain------
    - Deore hydro caliper + AVID HS 180mm (F) / 160m (R) rotor
    - Deore shifter/crank/RD + SLX FD + XT cassette 10 speed combo + KMC chain
    - SWISS CODE platform sealed bearing pedal
    - SUNTOUR EPICON 100mm front fork
    - Fulcrum RED POWER XL + Da Bomb QR + Schwalbe rubber

    Wonderful frame albeit rather heavy. nonetheless, no regrets andshould have gotten her sooner!

    She loves mud and the humid weather here!!

    Well....I'm gonna be selling my 2011 Dakar 650B2 if you're interested. Would prefer to sell the complete bike vs frame but would consider offers. I'm looking for something with a bit more travel and slacker HA than this bike has. Maybe 250 miles and it has a brand new RS Monarch shock that was just replaced under warranty by RS since the other one wasn't getting full travel and then puked oil all over itself. They also upgraded it from an RT to and RT3. Bike is mint and has plenty of clear protective tape in many areas.

    Good job! My Dragon Pro (and first post!)

    Finally back into the sport after a 15 or so year hiatus... decided to find a nice steel hardtail and build it the way I wanted...

    Show us your Jamis!-8462417957_74e0cb31fe_c.jpg

    It is a mix of old and new, bought, bartered and begged parts, but it rides great! Here are some details:

    Frame: 2009 Dragon Pro Reynolds 853 steel
    Fork: Manitou R7 (100mm)
    Headset: DaBomb XC
    Stem: Ritchey 100mm
    Spacers: Token
    Bars: Easton carbon
    Seat post: DaBomb XC
    Seatpost clamp: Chromag
    Saddle: WTB BelAir (yes, that's snow camo)
    Brakes: Hayes 9's slightly modded to work with center lock discs
    Bar ends: NC17 lockons
    Shifters: Deore 2 way
    Wheels: Shimano LX Deore
    Tires: Intense C2 Cross Country
    Crankset: Shimano Deore Hollowtech
    Cassette: Sram (970?)
    Chain Sram PC991
    Rear D: LX
    Front D: LX
    Pedals: Crappy old Wellgo flats for winter, but a new set of Shimano clipless come spring

    Its going to be my cross-country/winter bike (yes I need ice spikers!) and I'm starting a Dakar XAM build for the bigger obstacle trails. I'll post it up when its finished - its currently a frame.

    Cheers to all the great Jamis' in this thread so far! See you on the trails!

    Phil

    My Jamis Dakar XCT 2011 frame cracked in August 2012. The dealer told me i would get a 2013 replacement in February. Now I am getting the runaround and very frustrated. Has anyone had contact with someone at their warrantee/support dept?

    cracked below the seatpost. It is a Dakar XCT Large. The only reason I didnt have a problem was they told me they would replace with an XL frame. but its been so long I am annoyed.

    Any advice would be appreciated...

    That sucks. It looks like you had your seat post out too far and it stressed seat tube to the point of cracking. Did you ride with the seat post almost all the way out?

    Either way, I hope you get a new frame soon. Jamis is normally good with warranty claims. If they had a front triangle to give you, you probably would have it by now.

    Regardless of how it happened or whatever they said it will be replaced. If 6 months ago they said tough luck I wouldve prob just bought a bike from a different brand. The fact that I have been waiting this whole time and now getting the run around is what annoys me. Good luck to anyone who has to deal with Jamis, you have to go thru a dealer who could care less because he is not makeing anything off this.

    KBer,

    Sorry to hear about the issues you are having. I run the Tech Department for Jamis Bicycles. PM me you contact info and include the name of the shop that is handling your warranty claim

    Thanks Tim, I picked up the frame on Friday. It seems they might've had it when I called but had some confusion at their shop.

    It looks great cant wait to get up and running with it. You guys are AWESOME! Very satisfied customer.

    Whew, glad to hear things got taken care of KBer. I haven't had to deal with warranty stuff through the shop I bought my Jamis through, but I can tell by the way the guy runs his shop, it would be no problem. If the Jamis guys read this, Mike from Pulaski Bikes in VA is great. Always good to answers questions through email as well.

    This is the Femme version, So it is designed for women. Giving it to your wife is the only option.

    Just slap a Susan G Komen decal on it and you'll be alright. Plus you will be supporting a a good cause too.

    It's going to be specifically designed for women, so if you have a woman's body then it should work out alright. :P

    Show us your Jamis!

    Here's a blast from the past, it's a Eureka from about 2000. I built it up in 2002 with a hodge podge of parts. It has XT front and rear derailleurs, XTR BB, Chris King headset, Salsa Stem, Time ATAC carbon pedals, and LX V brakes and levers. I also used some parts from a mid 90s build including Campy Stentho wheels with Deore hubs, bars, and Grip Shift shifters. I had a low end Marzocchi Bomber (Z4?) that I replaced in '07 with a Rock Shox Tora 318.

    I recently added a stem extender and a fat boy wide gel seat, because I got sick and gained 100 lbs since building it. While I was at it I also threw on some Conti Town & Country tires since I was only riding on the road. I started running 3 weeks ago, and riding again last week. It still works for me, so I can't see replacing it anytime soon. My goal this summer, between running and riding, is to lose 50lbs. If I can do that I might think about buying a FS bike and ride some actual trails.
