    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....

    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.
