    They came with the bar.

    I like that it says "GO FAST" on the cross bar (a little encouragement)

    I am changing them though. I wanted a slightly higher rise and a lower weight, so I am getting Azonic CF-1s




    I got them for like $15 last year sometime. Don't remember where though sorry.

    Type "Club roost handlebar red" in google and you can find them.

    I think I’m in love… Now I just need a few million dollars so everyday could be a weekend…

    I don't have any scales in this house... (not even a bathroom scale)

    I would guess around 33-34, with the new seat and h-bars going on it will prob be around 32.

    that is a complete guess though. I would doubt it is @ the 30 mark because it has a heavy headset, cranks, rear der, cassette, and bashguard.

    I mean, with Shimano you have to use a new hyperglide rivet every time; with SRAM and the others you can re-use a rivet a few times. Seems obvious.

    05 XLT repost w/ better pic

    I finally got around to taking a better pic of the finished build. I have over 100 miles on it and am extremely pleased with this bike. Even more so after selling off some old parts and knowing my out of pocked expense is now just over $500 for the entire bike.

    Here's mine. Nothing exciting. Pretty much the stock 2005 Jamis XC Expert. Weighs in at 28 lbs on a digital scale (1 pound increments) for a 17 frame.

    Just took this ship out on its mayden voyaage, and I love it! Probably feels even better than it should considering I am coming from a '98 GT Borrego but I can already tell the XLT 1.0 is gonna be a great all around bike for me. Cheers.

    05 Jamis Dakar Sport


    Ok here is my dakar sport, just ordered frame from JensonUSA, and swaped the components from my 99 EXILE which I plan on making a single speed out of.
    I cant believe I waited for so long to go to a full suspension bike !!!, first time out on my usual 12 mile loop I beat my best time by two minutes.

    "Wal-Mart chrome flaming skulls & matte black paint to cover up the (IMHO) lame 20th Anniversary graphics (longhorn sheep butting heads!!??)"

    The image on the 20th Anniversary Dakar bikes was the original headtube graphic for the first Dakar Series.

    my new XAM 2

    got this little baby for my birthday,haven't ridden it in anger yet but the couple of km's i've done have been very,very nice. I haven't got it set up perfect yet, still gotta play around with the DHX 5 but i've got the TALAS fork pretty good. the el camino,s still need to be bed in properly.
    if anyone has some setup tip's for the DHX on this frame for a rider that weigh's 85kg that would be great.

    Jamis Diablo 1999

    Hello,
    I bought my Jamis a few weeks ago and love the ride!!! The frame is very stiff and light.
    I'm glad that I found a forum about Jamis, because where I come from (Holland) is not much info about it. This is my first Jamis, and I really like the brand and his history.
    I've got some pics for you, and if there is someone with the same bike, please respond! I can't find anybody in Holland with the same bike...
    Greetings Jeroen.

    specs:
    all XT
    fork: Manitou X-vert 4.0"
    shock: Fox Vanilla 4.0"
    wheels: Sunrims with DT hubs (rims will be replced with disc rims)
    brakes: Hayes
    handlebar: Easton monkey lite
    stem: no name (will be replced with carbon)
    seatpost: Promax carbon

    updated pics of my bike (with 2.2" Michelin All Mountains and crank brothers candy pedals) in a pretty place. It's a fun (and muddy) singletrack zone that runs alongside cliffs, if it seems danger... yes it is! I love it.

    I only use the all mountains in sticky mud for now but, in these conditions they have good traction and take off mud quite well. they have rounded profile so they rolls ok. I don't know how is their performance in the rocks or hard terrain for now. I hear that the dual compound version (grey ones) suffer quickly wear and tread loss, but mine are the 60 tpi version, i hope they are much better in terms of durability...

    anyways I get they for cheap, I really don't worry about it.

    thats a very nice ride. I was tossing up between one of those and the XAM2, the XAM won out with the extra travel. If I took my racing a bit more seriously i would have got the XCR.
    enjoy.
