    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....
