    My trusty old mountain bike:


    Note the family of Swans!

    Here's a slightly better shot.


    "The flight deck..."


    "The engine..."

    Please excuse the odd angles in the last two.

    Be it for the over-cast weather or my camera in need of adjustment; the yellow has come out looking a little like sickly custard! In real life, its a vibrant but non-overpowering yellow.

    N.B. if any one lives near me and wants to hook up for some cycling (I also have a road bike), PM me.

    Jamis Dakar XLT with Fox Van R rear shock 5" travel
    FSR Orbit Z internal cup-type headset
    Fox Vanilla R 130 fork
    Easton EA 50 stem
    Easton EA 70 HiRise bars
    Thomson Elite Layback post
    WTB Rocket V Team Ti saddle
    Lizard Skins Logo Lock On grips
    Avid Juicy 5 brakes
    LX shifters
    XT front derailleur
    XT rear derailleur
    SRAM PG 990 cassette
    SRAM PC 971 chain
    Shimano Hone crankset
    Hope Pro II hubs
    DT EX 5.1d rims
    DT Competition spokes brass nips
    Salsa Flip-off skewers
    Kenda Nevegal 2.35" DTC tires
    Shimano m505 SPD pedals

    I have spent quite a bit of time putting it together/riding...blah blah. I'm probably still not done yet. I'm perusing the carbon bar idea, and have always wanted a Thomson stem. I may try to get some XTR or 959 pedals for my birthday or something. I'd still love to have an XTR rear derailleur. I tried SRAM and though it's a good product...I still prefer Shimano.

    All in all, I've spent about $1575. Got a killer deal on the frame and fork. Got some other parts given to me for Christmas and Birthdays. For what it is, I don't have much in it.

    Today sucks:





    I can't decide whether a warranty would be adequate. Maybe if they do replace the rear triangle, I should sell it and buy a Heckler?!?

    they should cover that as it was pretty common on the older ones.

    I recently bought a 05 XLT and they actually included a extra rear triangle with the bike. It was supposed to be a retro fit, but the guy said just hang on to it in case the one on there breaks. I'm sure they will warrenty it.

    Promising...I've been pretty distraught all evening because I just sold my Fisher Hardtail for around 1k and have put almost the entire profits into new parts for the Jamis. Now it's broken?!!

    I was of the mindset that maybe I should sell all my new parts, old parts, and plasma so I could try to get a Heckler or even a C-Dale Gemini or something that would last a while. Problem is...I loved the way the Jamis felt after I got it built. I just want it to hold up. I don't feel as if I punish it. Most of the time, I do less than 2 foot drops. Heck, half the time, I just ride it to work on the street.

    Surely it's a defect.

    I just found the paper work for my bike, included were three pages regarding the retro fit of the chain stay. I bought the bike mail order, I think the bike shop just didn't want to bother replacing it so they sent it to me with the original and the retro fit in the box. If you have a fax I would be happy to fax you the paper work. There are warrenty phone numbers and contact info.

    No worries chelboed, an 04 XLT that a buddy rides had the exact same break. It almost looks as though you took photos of his bike.

    Anyhow, Jamis warrantied it no questions asked. I'm certain you are safe.

    Is your buddy still riding his? I just don't want it to happen again.

    I've even been considering a Banshee Scirocco as a replacement, but I'd sorely miss my rear suspension. Maybe I should just give it a go and see if the warranty'd rear end is better.

    He still rides the bike. He's a big fella too! 6'3" about 230 lbs and no problems. I believe the chain stay replacement was an upgrade to a beefier set up. Plus that was nearly two years ago when it was replaced.

    Give it a try, my opinion is that it will be well worth it.

    Thanks...that's the first ray of light I've had in my cold, dark world.

    I just have been flippin' out b/c I can't afford to get new stuff all the time. I sold my only other bike to do all of these upgrades. (new kid)

    I'll talk to Jamis and give it a whirl.

    used 05XLT

    I had the bike on layaway since last fall, with my tax return I paid it off. I decided on the bike mostly because the old Trek was getting old,and it was a good price. It will be a while before it hits the trails, see snow! But I took it for a spin up the road. Wow what a difference between the Trek hard tail and the XLT.

    Have you weighed yours? I wondered what it'd weigh with your build and being "air sprung". I almost went with a TALAS or float with an RP23 rear shock, but I really wanted the coils...oh I love them so.

    Unofficially, I think that it is around 32 lbs as well. The Float R has been treating me good but I would like to have a RP23 at some point. Your bike looks great, hope it is back in the action soon.
