    My new ride - '04 Dakar Sport

    Just picked this guy up on Saturday - it's my first "real" MTB.

    All stock, except for the pedals, in this shot. I just swapped in a wider handlebar today since the stock one was too narrow for me (6'4" - 21" frame).

    I'm loving this bike so far, and it's nice that it's a lesser known bike out West - makes it more unique.

    dragon after a few rides...

    my built up dragon, after doing the ken burton trail in pasadena, ca. fun ride, a few creek crossings washed off most of the dirt... love the recently tuned/lubed old school marzocchi z2. handled the switch backs pretty well.

    since the pictrue, i swapped out the 120mm 10deg pos stem for a 130mm 10deg neg for more stretch and easier climbing, put on a thomson post (the cheapo no name post kept slipping and creaking) and also added a salsa brake boost on the rear (not sure yet if this was necessary but the rear brakes felt a bit mushier on the descents compared to front).

    also put on xtr v brakes front and rear -- they work really well with the old school 8 speed xtr combo brake/shifters despite being designed for cantilevers. brake feel was really mushy when i had the xt v brakes, but the xtr work great! also less squeel.

    Here's my 2004 Dakar XC Expert.

    It's still (pretty much) stock. I still new and I have only a couple hundred miles on it. I will defeintely be ditching the Hutchinson tires. I gave them a cahnce, making sure to form my own opinion on them... can't get rid of them fast enough!

    04 Dragon

    Here is a final photo of my bike. Soon the frame will be stripped down and sold. My poor old body can't take the hardtail.

    Here she is. 02 Eureka decked out with Zoke Z1 and some downhill/freeride components. Was really into freeriding and urban when I got her 1 1/2 years ago, but she has proven herself as a pretty formidable trail bike. Also enjoy the occasional Dual course and can do some damage on the tamer downhills.

    Anyway, she's sweet to me....

    AMEN! I had those those tires on my Dakar and didn't like them on bit. I gave them about 1 month because I didn't want to ditch a new set of tires and thought to give them a chance. They were so pinch flat and puncture prone. Traction in loose conditions were sketchy and corning was bad. The only advantage was their relatively lighter weight.

    My fav XC tires that I ran on my Dakar were the Fire XC and the Mythos XC.

    Here's my Jamis Cross Country 1.0 Nothing really special, it's stock with Specialized Fatboy Tires. I ride mostly on pavement, since the dirt trails are an hour away.

    I feel so bad that I don't have a pic of my durango that I'm buidling up into a freeirde machine myself. I've taken it to do urbans, djs, trail, and some DH stuff and the bike is great for that. It handles really well in the trails so it's become a very versatile bike and I've only put in an extra $275 on top of what I paid ($550). All in CDN too, so probably pretty cheap for you US guys.

    '01 Dakar Expert

    I had a '99 or '00 sport, but the rear swing arm (chainstay sort of) broke. Jamis Warranteed it will this one. I used to go destroy the bushing on the old one in one ride; kind of happy it broke. This one has been great so far. It is a little heavy, but I finally have it to where things are not breaking every ride (clydesdale 255).

    Having trouble with the picture, hopefully it comes out.

    Ken.

    Don't upgrade to the 05. Your 03 has the horstlike rear pivot.

    I did the same with an 03 XLT 1.0. Put a Swinger 4 way on it - not that it really needed it. The back drop reminds me of my years in Sacramento. Where was your location?

    Someday, I'll move back....

    Good job! Sweeeeet greeeen Komodo!

    Jamis fans should appreciate my girlfriends sweeeeet Komodo!

    People stop all the time, esp. around the "racing scene", to compliment her bike!

    Built spring '04 - her first "real" bike. She's now riding trails on this bike which I ride on a 5x5 fs! Incredible investment for less than $600 completley built (fork and brakes came from my old HT... rip)

    23 lbs in all! Killer geometry!

    If the frame were any bigger, she'd have to fight me for it!
    I'd trade my 2002 Stumpjumper M4 for one of these in a heartbeat!

    Lucky girl!


    Pictures taken before X-9 triggers, wider rims and tires were added - now running 19mm and 24mm rims, w/ 2.35 Kenda Blue Groove / 2.25 Fat Albert tubless, and 9 speed.

    Specs for the geeky:

    * 14" Komodo frame NIB
    * Marzocci MX Pro ETA 105mm 2003 w/ custom green flames!
    * FSA Orbit XLII headset NIB
    * Truvative Stylo SL cranks / rings NIB
    * Raceface BB NIB
    * SRAM X.9 triggershifters, front and med-cage rear d'er (shown w/ gripshifters)
    * XT 760 90spd cassete
    * Avid BBDB 160mm
    * Avid SD7 levers NIB
    * Titec Hell Bent 1" riser bar 2003
    * RockShock suspension seatpost NIB
    * Mavic 317's hand built w/ bling-bling red nipples, laced to Specialized Stoutfly hubs (replaced w/ Mavic F219 / WTB Dual Duty 24mm)
    * WTB SpeedShe saddle NIB
    * Salsa stem & seat clamp
    * Kenda BG 2.35 & Fat Albert 2.25" tubelss tires (shown w/ ElGatos)

    My 2003 Dakar Sport. The Manitou Black blew after 3 weeks, so replaced with a RS Duke XC. Replaced crappy wheels with XT/Sun Single Tracks. Geax Blade 2.0 tires.
    Overhaul coming this week. Need to replace chain, all cables, rear derailler, stem and bar setup.

    Here's my 03 XLT lost in the middle of Frederick...

    I went for a ride at Gambrill State park. Took a few wrong turns I suppose. So I sat down to take a break and snapped off a few pictures. I had a Swinger 4 way on the frame but switched it to a Fox Propedal. Kinda liked the Swinger a bit better.

    My older Dragon

    Built this up awhile back, the parts are now dated but I can't justify replacing anything until it breaks. Its heavier than it should be, fork and wheels, but I'm 6'4" 210 so I guess it doesn't matter .

    Just Picked up this BRAND NEW 1997 Jamis Dakar Team 15 frame for my GF for $200. She had an 01 Dakota, I swapped all the parts to her new frame last nite.
    She is running full LX drivetrain (XT Chain) with Avid Arch Rival brakes w SD 2.0L levers. Titec bar w/bar ends and 05 Specialized BG grips, Titec seatpost with a Terry Liberator X womans seat. BS stem(for now) LX hubs on Sun SUB IV rims with a Tioga tires. She weights in at about 25lbs.

    I am really impressed with this frame. Especialy the Easton stamped onto the main frame tube. I pumped the shock up for her weigth and it is just amazing. The Cane Creek AD-8 seem like an amazing shock. Haven't test ride it yet, still waiting for a new front derailer(LX so it'll match the groupo). If she puts some miles on this one, we'll go with carbon seatpost and handle bars and swap out steel bolts for alum or Ti.

    And the old Dakota is going to be a single speed with left over parts in the house. For our son/me to ride it.

    Here's a link to the pics of my new '05 Dakar Pro

    Not in the woods, but tires show it was!!! It's VERY dry here, even though we had a wet March. Included also is a pic of my Trek hartail and my long travel KHS beater (Has the awaiting Gazzalodi Mud DH tire hanging above it). The KHS is my next project. New front triple/ rear shocks, Drivetrain upgrade to HONE, and new disc brakes of the Hydraulic Type.
