    She's a beauty! You're right about the blue paint being way cooler in person than in the catalog shots. I had the same experience with the red paint on my '05 Dakar Expert. When it came in, my LBS actually called, all excited, to say, "Dude, you are NOT going to believe how cool this thing looks!"

    Jamis should be really proud of their whole '05 lineup. If long-term durability matches first impressions, they are going to sell a $%^#-load of bikes this year!

    That red pops just like the blue!! Look out for the downtube facing the ground. Found that the Jamis paint chips easily. I put some clear contact paper on the entire downtube facing the wheel. Depends on how nice you want to keep the bike. Mine is kept showroom clean. Well, it has been dry enough here that it only requires a wipe down with the California Dry clean auto thingy. I did have to clean the chain. Tried to anyway. Shimano gunks up their chains too much with that super sticky industrial strength lube. I had to scrub it by hand for over an hour to get the TOP LAYER of that crap off. Not good stuff for the generally dry, dusty hardpack trails around here.
    Sweet bike!!
    Are you finding that the chain 'growls' and seems to be at a hard angle when in the middle ring and 34 tooth rear combo??

    Thanks!

    My drivetrain, thus far, has been smooth as silk. My LBS is a chronic perfectionist and a pro-level race mechanic though. He also coated my chain with that super-cool Dumonde Tech polymer lube before he sent my bike home. I've done maybe 7 rides since I picked up the bike in all kinds of conditions and the chain still looks brand new and glides like butter. That stuff can be hard to find, but it's well worth the search.

    I've also been really pleased with the smooth shifting and smooth running of the Truvativ Stylo crankset. It seems to be a good compliment to a dual suspension bike, with slightly slower but much more deliberate shifting performance. Only one or two chainsucks in maybe 40-50 miles of riding, and those were due in large part to my effort to downshift while technical climbing and while the rear suspension under nearly full compression. I believe that's referred to in the business as a "bonehead move" and not as an "equipment failure."

    my XLT built up as an XC bike

    Here's my 2003 XLT. After dealing with the "kiss" dent on the seat tube and broken stays, I decided it'll make a better XC bike than a FR bike. Got it down to 28 lbs.

    This is my 02' Dakar Sport...

    Got the frame off ebay last November while I was out for surgery.
    Built it up with components off my last bike.
    Just recently replaced the rear shock with a Fox Float RP3...

    Great ride...

    The kiss....

    Quote Originally Posted by Daz

    At first I dealt with the kiss by ignoring it. Usually the front derailler cable housing take the brunt of the hit. Eventually, I had a buddy of mine machinge me a new cross-member (seatstay bolt on that does the kissing) that was "dished" more to allow the rear suspension to compress 1/2 inch more. But to "dish" it to clear the seat tube, I had to give up tire clearance - which didn't really matter for me as I only run 2.1's. also, I got back the last 1/2 inch of travel my bike was missing from the original poor design.

    Another Jamis!

    I didn't believe there were this many *proud* Jamis owners about .

    I think the new 2006 colour schemes look rubbish, but the 2004 and 2005 colour schemes are great.

    My bloody brilliant 2005 Jamis Dakar Sport, 19", with a set of Larsen TT tyres, an ABR seatpost, double butted rear spokes, and an IKE saddle (the WTB saddle which came stock was rubbish - it was uncomfortable and tore easily).

    Photo #1 - This photo is a few months old.
    Photo #2 - The latest photo, taken on the way to Mount Kosciusko just a few weeks ago.
    Photo #3 - It tows a BOB very well.
    Photo #4 - The joey looks puzzled.

    1997 Dakar Team

    Put this together back in 1998. Recently changed the front shock out to a Marzocchi Bomber, replaced the saddle with a WTB and threw on a carbon riser bar. I put the XTR five-arm spider cranks on a couple bikes to get the 26-36-48 rings. Sadly, owning a Scaplel and about to start a build on a Dos Niner, my Dakar has become my night-ride and winter weather bike. With limited shed space I may have to let it go soon. It's been very good to me over the years.

    More than the sum of its parts...

    I bought the frame used for $100, its about a year old and in nice shape. I was planning on building it up with some older parts I had lying around but the frame is just too sweet so I bought some new parts and am going to build it up into a trail bike. I'm just waiting for the heavier spring to arrive from Fox so I can convert the fork to 100mm travel. I'll post another pic when its all together, its my first Jamis and I think it is going to be an excellent bike!

    My 05 XLT. Just picked it up a few weeks ago. My second Jamis actually... first was an older (93-ish) Durango that I have no pics of. Still sitting in the basement at my parents' place in Cincinnati though.

    I just finished building up my new 2003 dakar XC pro. It's a work in progress so the seatpost, saddle, rear tire (been using it on the trainer) and just about everything else are temporary.

    We had record high temps here in MI today so I took the jamis out for it's first ride. as I suspected, I love it! I took a glamor shot before I got it muddy. I dont think it'll ever be this clean again.

    Custom built 2005 Dakar XC Expert

    Picked up the frame online a few months ago and built it up with some nice to really nice parts from other bikes. Frankly, I can't think of a bike I'd rather ride right now. Jamis IMHO has the best bang for the buck of any bike company out there.

    My New Ride

    Here are some pics of my new Jamis Dakar XLT. It's very satisfying putting together your own bike, I just hope it doesn't fall apart on the trails. LOL.

    Here's my Dakar:



    I assembled it about five years ago from a mix of cheapo NOS stuff and a new 9 speed XT kit, including 1998 XT v-brakes / levers, Judy XC, Icon bar / stem, a NOS Bontrager wheelset (System 3 / XT hubs, red label / blue label rims). The only used part I used was the Bontrager seatpost.

    It cost me a total of around $1100, weighs 26.4 lbs, and fits me perfect.

    '05 XLT Homebuild

    - '05 XLT Frame (Jenson)
    - Pike
    - AC Stem/ Azonic bars
    - Avid Mechi's 8" F&R / Avid levers
    - Hollzfellers w/ E13 DRS guide
    - Rhyno XL's/ Ringle Hubs with heavy rubber 2.7F/2.5R
    - XT/Hone drive train

    Great bike, climbs very well, but a bit on the heavy side 38-40lbs. I'm pretty impressed with the DH performance. The Pike is awesome, matches this frame very well.

    the tires are the biggest weight offender. 2.7, and 2.5 DH tires are HEAVY! and Rhyno XLs are BEEFY!

    the DRS, and the stem/seatpost may be a bit on the porky side too.

    The tires and wheels are the heaviest. I'm running a 2.7 Kujo in the front and a Intense 909 2.5 in the rear with maxxis DH tubes, plus Ringle Allah hubs. The trails are so rocky here in CO that I would rather run beefier rubbers than get pinch flats all the time.

    I'm guessing at the weight BTW. I'll throw it on the scale when I get a chance tonite...

    How very enigmatic, totally rad, but quite mysterious nonetheless. What's the deal with the "dent" on the rear triangle? Probably increases structural integrity in some way. How do you like that wheelset? Sweet ride!

    I'm still putting it together and hope to finish tonight; which hopefully means I'll get to take it out tomorrow, beat on it and report back--it'll be my first time going tubeless. As for the "dent" in the chainstay, it's not one--it's the shape .

    Looks like it's for clearance with the cranks.

    It appears you might be correct--the notches line up with the ends of the cranks. Then again, there is over a half inch of space between the chain stays and the ends of the cranks and this depression accounts for about an eighth of an inch of it.

    As for the other guys that might be expecting to hear back from me on my maiden voyage, I didn't get an opportunity to ride this weekend. Yes, I could nearly cry. I guess I'll have to escape to a trail after work one day this week.

    Cool-blue Rhythm 2004 XLT 3.0 - Sweet Ride

    Here is my dream ride I built from March 2005 - March 2006 - here's the specs:

    Frame: 2004 XLT 3.0, 19"
    Shock: 2005 Fox RP3
    Fork: 2004 Fox TALAS RLC
    Headset: Cane Creek ZS-2
    Stem: Thomson Elite
    Handlebar: FSA XC-190
    Grips: ODI Rogue Lock-On
    Shifters/Cables: XTR Rapidfire/XTR
    Saddle: SDG Bel-Air Ti
    Seatpost: Thomson Elite
    Seatbinder: Salsa Flip-Lock
    Crankset/BB: XTR Hollowtech II
    Pedals: M959
    F Derailleur: XTR
    R Derailleur: XTR, Short Cage
    Cassette: XTR, 11-34
    Chain: SRAM PC-991, Hollowpin
    Brakes: Avid Juicy 7
    Wheelset: Spinergy Xyclone Disc
    Skewers: Salsa Ti Flip-Offs
    Rim Strips: Velox
    Tires/Tubes: Specialized Roll-X Lite/Panaracer Greenlite
    Barends: Titec Micros
    Computer: Specialized Turbo Pro
    Chainstay Protector: Lizard Skins


    Right Side


    Left Side


    Front


    Drivetrain


    Chillin' in Alaska


    Ride in Action

    Through buying the frame/fork (unused) on Ebay, careful picking of components, and a 62-piece ti bolt set, I was able to whittle this sweet ride down to 27.5 lbs complete, with all the performance you expect from an XLT. The cost, you may ask? $3800 complete - not a cheap ride, but at only $500 more than the stock '06 3.0, and at a 4 lb weight loss, well worth it. Rides like a dream - can't wait to log some serious backcountry miles on this baby up here in beautiful Anchorage, Alaska.

    Sorry

    I really don't want to turn this into a discussion on html, but the easiest way to post a picture is to use a site like flickr.com (which is free) where your pic is uploaded and hosted. From there, use the supplied url and incorporate it into an html image tag. If you get stuck, repeat this simple mantra, "google is my best friend!"

    i love the quick action especially with my twist shifters(my stuby thumbs never seems to like the alternative). But very disappointed with a few other sram products(posted a rant in sram forums about it). tried to build a shimano-less ride, but i will soon be switching to an xtr chain and possibly cassette soon.

    finally got him out on a real ride and his first real spill - halfway down a 5 foot embankment just short of the creek below - the only thing injured was his pride - but that healed quick and we were back on our way...

    I don't know about that... I much prefer SRAM chains to Shimano. For that matter, I'd rather have a Wipperman or a KMC or whatever. Not a big fan of Shimano chains. Their cassettes are good, though.
