    Started off as a beater bike that I built to take on the trails while I go fishing and I took as many parts off my 2004 Giant ATX as I can. Very low end Shimano Alivio stuff. As I started upgraded my Rocky Mountain Altitude, I just started putting the parts I've swapped onto this bike. I had mostly Sram on my RM but switched it all to Shimano XT so the Sram 2000 crankset and X7 drivetrain went on this bike with X5 shifters. And after awhile, I said screw it, and found a good deal on a Fox fork with 15mm thru axle so that I can use my Easton wheel set. Yes, I could of gotten an adapter for it but might as well.

    Here's my girlfriend's 2012 Jamis Dakar XC Comp. Some upgrades (maily to save some weight):
    - DT Swiss Onyx/X455 wheelset and WTB Velociraptor tires
    - Rockshox Recon Race fork
    - Titec cockpit and seatpost, Terry saddle.

    This is her first full suspension and she really likes it.
    For the price (paid about 1000 CAD), I think this really is a great bike.

    My Dragon 29 Race (20AE). After I put a shorter stem and some squishy tubeless tires on it I'd have to say it's the best bike I've ever owned. I can't wait for the 2015's to become available, I'm buying one ASAP. I'm dieing to know what the tire clearance will be (if it can take a 2.4 I'll lose it).

    Valhalla bound.

    Not a mountain bike, but still a Jamis.

    Picked it up slightly used and mostly stock. This was taken after I finished putting it back together after being shipped.

    The pedals turn, not just the left one, but the right one too.

    I have an 08 that I have replaced everything but the cassette. I still ride it like I stole it. Mine felt a little heavy in the front. A 2" riser bar was just the ticket. Other than that everything else was upgraded as needed.

    Been a long time since I posted on this thread, here's an update. I've pounded the hell outta this 08' Dragon Pro over the years but I have to admit it has taken a back seat to my FS ride. A classic 26" HT (old school steel & geo) and I still enjoy getting it out on Colorado front-range single-track to this day. Setup is biased for long, solo trail rides versus XC. Still a fast bike but dependable, comfortable and does well on long climbs, fast descents and always gets me home.

    Burned through countless consumables, tires, pads, cassettes, chains, pulleys, cables and maintenance activity but primarily stock with the following tweaks;

    WTB Laser V Saddle
    Thomson Elite X4
    Raceface Next 3/4" Riser with Oury's
    180mm Front Rotor
    Cables shortened
    XTR chain
    Shimano Saints (no washers)
    (F) Butcher Grid 2.3 tubeless, (R) Ground Control Grid 2.1 tubeless

    Dirt in the pic but...my bikes are always dirty.

    2006.5 Jamis Dragon Team

    I wanted to preserve the classic-XC geometry of my old 1996 GT Zaskar, but switch to Steel. Yet something that could still be Quick. Was looking for an older Steel race frame, like a 96' Kona Explosif, 96' Diamondback Axis, or any GT Psyclone (my unicorn). Hard to find any of the above. Then this red beauty caught my eye on Ebay. Didn't think the newer geometry would work with the old parts, but it did. Big tire up front, smaller one in the rear.

    She is a head-scratcher. It has the 2007 colors, but the geometry is based upon the 2006 model, (an 80mm Fork, more classic-XC lines). Jamis switched to a 100mm Fork in 2007. I was told that they sold out of the 2006 framesets before the year was over, and had to run some 2007 colors with the old geometry. My buddy swapped the old-school GT Zaskar parts onto the newer Jamis. And yes, that is a 1996 Marzocchi Bomber Z2 fork on there. Almost 20 years old and still going strong!

    Anyway, this bike turned out to be everything I hoped and dreamed for. Fast, nimble, and Three Times Smoother than my old Alloy frame. No more "beat-up" feeling after 2-hour+ rides. That thing used to rattle my neck and spine with no mercy. Lesson learned. No more aluminum hardtails for me.

    Custom Dragon Pro'11

    Show us your Jamis!-dragon11.jpg

    My custom Dragon Pro 26" 2011, bought as a frame only.
    Last summer I started bulding a dream bike on that frame, and here on the pic is what we got for now: rigid (currently alu, but steel planned) 1x9 Shimano, Continental and Ritchey-based cro-monster. 19" frame turned out a bit small for me, hence the slightly unusual saddle height.
    (There were only three frames in our country, and only one 21" somewhere in the Eastern Siberia, so I decided to deal with the situation.)

    Whatever's comfortable man! Really nice bike. It kind of sucks that you couldn't get a 21" but I guess the saddle height is working fine for you.

    New to MTB, this is my first dirty bike. Bought the bike basically new from my LBS, just been sitting in their storage (long story). So they gave me a great deal on it.

    Basically stock 2012 Dakar 650b Pro.
    Racing Ralph's
    Converted to tubeless
    Had problems with the stock stem, so I replaced it with something I had in the garage (coincidentally, a Janis stem).
    Different seat.

    Planning to change fork oil in the near future to increase damping. Other then that I'm real happy. I'm hoping the negative posts on here about cracking are the exception. But I do eventually plan to replace the frame with a carbon FS XC frame (something used like a Scalpel). But for now, I'm just racing what I've got. First MTB race was this year (Temecula 12 hour). Started racing in the Kenda Cup, going to try Cat 2 next year.

    2015 Dakar AMT Comp 27.5"

    Show us your Jamis!-img_2867.jpg

    Absolutely love this bike so far. Coming from a hard tail this thing has increased my confidence 10 fold, I'm bombing down descents and hitting drops like I never would have before. My only complaint is that the brake setup on the bike is extremely noisy, pads click loudly and echo through the frame and the rear brake is already screaming at me after a week. For some reason it came with Deore hydraulic discs and levers but is equipped with Alivio rotors which not only look cheap but flex considerably compared to the Tektros on my hardtail. If the noise doesn't tame down after I bring it in for break in adjustment I'll be upgrading the rotors and running metal pads pronto. For the price I paid I'm beyond satisfied with my purchase.

    My brakes are real loud. But very effective, so I just consider them a warning to trail users that I'm coming.

    Is yours last years (2014) model? Looks different from the 2015, I can tell from the fork, seat, and frame colors.

    I'd guess yes. LOL I honestly didn't think to ask when I bought it and it does not say on the invoice. I liked it, I was comfortable on it and I got a great deal on it. I agree that it is most likely a 2014 as the 2015's seem to be 2x10's.

    My partner's 1989 (I think? Maybe '88) Jamis Diablo. I bought it used when I was 13 or 14. Was originally black. Many of the parts have been replaced, of course. I think the original parts are: lefthand shifter and brake lever, front wheel, right crank and large chainring (yep, still Biopace HP!), bottom bracket, headset, seatpost, and handlebars. I believe everything else has been replaced. Including the paint, as you can see. I thought that was wicked cool when I was 14. I believe the purple is housepaint, and the front forks are cheapo spraypaint. As bare metal shows through, I hit it with primer to keep it from rusting. Not the right way to paint a bike, but hey, it's still purple over 20 years later! This bike has been ridden regularly since new and is still ridden multiple times per week on 10+ mile rides. It still feels more "right" to me than any other bike I've ever ridden.Show us your Jamis!-purplehaze2015.jpg

    Oh I forgot... the front derailleur is also original. "Mountain LX", a short-lived gruppo. Possibly 1989 only, or maybe '87-'89. Anybody know? I picked up a rear derailleur to match, because the bike originally came with all Mountain LX everything, but haven't put it on yet. Still have the original Mountain LX brakes, but when I was 14, those purple anodized aluminum Tektros were WAY cooler....

    A couple of pics showing my now XCT Pro. Not sure of the year because the colors do not match any of the previous years colors. This one is gloss black and a gloss metallic silver/grey. My bike started life as a 2013 XCT Comp but last weekend I noticed a 3/4 of an inch crack where the down tube met the top tube. So between Monday and Friday Jamis sent this frame to the shop that I had bought the bike from. Most of the components are from the XCT Comp with the exception of the 180mm XT Ice Tech rotors front and rear and some 50/50 Crank Brother pedals along with a Sun Inferno 25 front rim. Have a rim for the rear just have not had it changed over. Front tire is a Conti X King tubeless with a Knobby Nic not tubeless on the rear because my Conti Race King destroyed itself after about 25 rides this summer.

    Other then the top tube, the XCT looks so much like my 650b. Wonder what the difference is.

    I can't wait to get mine back from the shop. I dropped it off to rebuild the fork and shock and do a few other things for me when they found a bad brake lever. SRAM is replacing under warranty with Guide RSC! I already love the X0 brakes.

    Picked up some new Jamis entry level hardtails a few weeks ago for the wife and I. I got a 2015 Trail X Comp, and she got a 2016 Helix Comp.

    So far, we are really liking these bikes! This is my first bike in a little over 10 years, and this is her first venture into mountain bikes at all. Prior to this the only thing she had ever ridden was walmart cruiser bikes. I think she's really liking her bike. She got mud on it for the first time today and said, "Now I'm going to have to go home and clean my baby!" I have to admit, I really think the color of her bike turned out pretty sweet.

    We've since removed the reflectors and gotten a lot more mud on them.

    2003 Exile

    I'm new here and this is my first post. I'll be 59 in January, and am trying to get/stay in better shape. I rode a hybrid without suspension around St. Mary's Lake in Callaway MD and swore to not do that again without a different fork! I have been riding a vintage Bianchi "Strada" road bike for some time. I picked up this "Exile" on Saturday.

    2004 Dakar XLT 2.0 for Downhill

    bump!

    Added another jamis to the shed, a 2004 dakar xlt 2.0 with a marzocchi 88rc, 1x9 conversion and SLX brakeset upgrades. kind of cobbled together, but man is it fun (and fast)to ride! looks pretty alright for a 12 year old bike too IMO. (excuse the potato camera by the way, finished building the bike at night and was too excited to wait until after work tomorrow to ride it.

    Updated photo. I did a "fun" enduro a couple of weeks ago. It was a non sanctioned event and I was the only one to sign up as a Pro, so I lost...I mean, won by default

    -2012 650b Pro
    -New Stans Flow MK3's with 2.4 Mavic Quests. Whole new bike.
    -Reverb dropper
    -Dropped a chain ring, 1x10 with 34T Bling Ring and Sunrace 11-42 cassette.
    -Home made chain guide

    I really love this bike.

    I bit the bullet and decided to 'cry once'. My upgrade from my previous Jamis hardtail to the Defcon 1.

    2 Major cons:

    * Front and rear tires are awful, if you would like to know my reasons please read the following thread: Vittoria Morsa

    * Unable to mount a water bottle, does not fit when rear suspension compresses (rear suspension hits the water bottle which is almost impossible to insert and remove in the fame at rest)

    I almost purchased one, the only reason why I didn't was because of the terrain I ride, the frame would be badly nicked up and the steel exposed to water/air, I'm afraid the bare steel would rust.

    If the steel is more of an alloy - rust resistant, then I will reconsider it.

    4130 Is somewhat corrosion resistant, but its not stainless. Its not a problem at all in Idaho's dry climate. The durability and ride quality of steel far outweigh any concerns I have about corrosion.

    I live in East coast and between the summer humidity and wet trails, steel over time will corrode unless it has a lot of alloy in it. I'm not questioning the durability and longevity of steel, my only concern is if you ride in very rocky conditions in a humid environment, when the steel looses its protective paint coating it could be an issue over time.

    My daughter rides a steel (in expensive) bike and after 2 seasons rust is forming on certain parts of the frame, and her bike is garaged without the abuse I put on my bike.

    I got attached to this 05' Jamis XC 2.0 (14" small frame) after buying it used fir 100$ to ride daily while my license was under a 30 day suspension.
    I grew up racing bmx, had many dj bikes, few dh/fr but lots 24 & 26" bmx crossovers or dj's... anyway I decided to try and make this frame feel like a park bike since its geometry is somewhat steep like a 26 dj kinda has.

    I am in middle of modding it now. Half the parts are installed. Some are in the mail coming from amazon. It feels so much better than what it was originally.

    Exotic Brand Aluminum rigid fork for shock fork frames... disc brake mount only
    RaceFace respond bars
    Truvativ hussefelt 35 stem
    Origin8 locking grips
    Chromag Overture saddle
    RaceFace 36t 1x9 conversion sprocket
    MRP Mini G3 chain tension guide bash guard
    BB to iscg05 adapter plate for g3
    Haro Aluminum Platform Pedals
    N-gear chain jumpstop
    Kenda K-Rad Tires 26x2.25
    Bell self sealing tubes

    * since I really like this frame & would like to be the first with a Jamis brand DJ type bike cuz Im almost positive they dont make anything in that market. Right? Cuz I plan to get this frame powder coated then paint in the Jamis down tube stencil logo and then add a made up model name to the upper tube and sum details on chain stay and other places. I like super chrome base with color top clears like shocker yellow, glow green, jamaican teal, illusion red and colors like that. Leaning towards a matte black with high gloss neon letters and red yellow green rasta stripe details in places. The goal is to make people think it is some new jamis park bike that looks almost like an NS bikes factory frame in a way

    Jamis used to make a bike/frame bike called the kromo that was a DJ bike.

    The 2010 version came with a hanger that went over the axle and fit is the horizontal dropout that allowed for a rear derailleur.

    Found a bike with a broken frame so I pilfered the Rock Shox Judy forks, disk braks (so long cantilever!) and the wheels!! Awesome stopping power now!!

    My Brodie has hydraulic disk brakes, 180mm, and I think these 160mm mechanical brakes feel just as good!

    I can't wait to hit the,trail for a test ride!!

    All that's left is upgrading the rear shock to an air with lock out and that's all she'll get!

    I love this bike!

    Freaking awesome. Very high on may list for a new bike. I seen the sport version in person. The steel paint job looks so much better than the Aluminum paint.

    Jamis Dragon 650B (2012)

    My first Mountain Bike :-)

    I've been demo-ing full suspension bikes to join friends on trails, but not ready to spare $2k + on one. So then I went on Craigslist and found me a sweet Steel hardtail.

    853 Reynolds frame is as advertised: buttery smooth and light.

    Came upgraded with:
    - 1x drivetrain
    - Schwalbe Nobby Nic front, Hans Dampf rear tire
    - RaceFace Evolve stem
    - Redline pedals
    - Odi Ruffian grips

    I added:
    - KS eTen dropper seatpost

    Still beating up my 2012 650b Pro. Upgraded to Flow MK3 wheels, Sram Guide RSC brakes, 2.4 tires, Reverb dropper, 1x10 with Sunrace 11-42 cassette and MRP Blingring 34t up front.

    Funny part is, this is how I train for XC. My XC bike is a 100mm hardtail. No dropper, really light.

    Upgraded the heavy stock wheelset to WTB i19/DT 240s, tubeless Clement tires, XT centerlock rotors, and an Ultegra cassette and shaved off over a pound and a half.
