    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.
