    Here's my 04 Jamis Dakar XC Comp.

    The frame was bought new in 06. Full custom build up from the frame. I even built the wheels with same XTR hubs. The rims aren't anything special, but I like the red.

    XTR Shifters
    XTR/Vuelta XC wheels
    Easton Carbon seatpost
    Truvative Stylo GXP cranks
    XT cassette
    XT RD
    Deore FD
    RaceFace System 100mm stem
    Avid Ti brake levers
    Avid BB7 brakes.
    Manitou Minute 3 forks (06)

    Xcr

    Well, here is my latest bike. 07 XCR Comp. I swapped all of the upgraded parts over from my 04 Dakar XC Comp. Plus a couple of new items as well.

    06 Fox F100RLT Fork
    08 Fox RP23 shock
    08 Sram X-9 Front Der.
    08 Shimano XT Rear Der. (Shadow)
    06 Mavic Crossmax Wheels
    06 Race Face Dues Crankset

    I still have my old Dakar XC. I put all of the original parts back on it. So it is almost stock except a few odd parts and another set of Mavic Crossmax's. It will be my night lap bike at the 24-9.

    I've yet to ride the new bike, and I probably wont ride it until well into the spring. So it will sit in my basement until the weather gets nice. So the old Dakar will be my ride for the winter.

    P.S. The bike is a 19" and weighs 27lbs 8 oz.

    looks good. I just picked up that frame new off ebay. I have a 2005 XLT 2.0 and am going to switch everything out. Then, slowly switch out parts to lighten it up.

    You probably are getting the frame from the same guy as me then. It comes with the Fox Float R, not the Fox RP23 that I have on mine. I swapped out the shocks between my 04 Dakar XC and the new XCR.

    I picked up the RP23 in October, so it had very little use, made sense to put it on the XCR. The eye to eye measurements are identical, so the Float R went on the ol Dakar XC.

    yah probably the same guy. Picked it up for riding trails around here which are more single track and flat in Florida for $345 dollars. Not a bad deal. Even if I don't use it for a while. I don't think I will mind the R rear shock. My last bike had a the RP23 and I never used the propedal. I think the frame should drop 2 pounds off over the XLT. The next upgrade would be lighter wheels.

    Dakar XLT

    Heres my Jamis Dakar XLT (07') the pics are when it was new....its gottan alot dirtier since then....as of now its semi-decomissioned as the little cap thing (gawd, i keep forgetting the name, but i remember it was called "nipple-something"... ) somehow came off and the hydraulic fluid began leaking out...so right now i have no rear brakes.....i can still ride it though....i usually use the front anyway.....











    im going to buy a new wheelset (Azonic Outlaw) soon, as ive been breaking spokes on the rear alot, and the LBS is claiming my rim is too weak and flexes alot, causing them to break......im in need of a new wheelset anyway....being 210 pounds, i need something stronger.....im also looking into some new brakes (avid juicy 5's) as the hayes (as ive been told) are crap.........finally im looking into a new fork....although im still not sure if ill do that, or just stick a stronger spring in it.....im bottoming it out too easily.....and i think i also stripped the dampener adjustment (or whatever it was.....i stripped it before i could fine out what it did...lol).....i am looking into a marz AM 1 or the Z1.....

    question, will the extra 20mm of travel i would get from the marz add too much stress on the headtube??? if so, could i equalize it my buying a rear shock with a little more travel, and what (good, but cheap) shock would be a good replacement???

    emmaus28 that Jamis frame you picked up on ebay was it from seller ASUBIKE.com, seller esI1001? If so did you have any problems? I bought the frame on ebay and made payment on 12-18. Well still haven't got the frame. ALso sent 6 emails with only one response. He said there was a mix up on orders from the warehouse. He said the frame would be shipped on 12-31 or 01-02 I asked for tracking info. STILL NOTHING. I even called the listed number and left message. Getting frustrated.

    Yeah it was the same seller. I recieved the frame very quickly and very well packaged. I sent an unresponded email to him as well asking on ship date etc. But I recieved the frame so quickly that I did not bother worrying about it.

    He has a good feedback profile. I would allow him the opportunity to make good on the new promised ship date. If that falls through, then I would proceed with nasty email and express how this may be reflected on his feedback.

    He is a high output seller, sometimes things fall through the cracks by accident. Though it's not much fun for you. If it does not show by tomorrow afternoon, call him again.

    thanks for the response. I just filed a complaint with paypal with the resolution center.
    I will see if he responds to that. I think I have been patient through this. I just can't get the guy to respond to anything. ALL I have asked for is a ship confirm or refund. He doesn't respond to anything.
    Thanks agian.

    Hope it works out for you very quickly...the least he could do is refund the cost of shipping.

    Good luck.

    I got mine from the same seller and had similar issues. When I finally got a hold of him (Eric), he was pretty defensive, probably because I was flaming mad and I paid a pretty penny for "priority mail" which should take 2-3 days. Apparently, after I called he went down to the post office and my box had been caught in the machinery and it messed up my seat stays. He changed them out and sent it again that day.

    Since then, I have ordered several other parts from him (2 headsets, etc) and haven't had any problems. In fact, they have been arrived pretty quickly. Don't worry, they'll come. I don't know where you are at, but I couldn't ride anyway right now with all this snow.

    DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH ASUBIKE>COM ON EBAY here are my letters and his responses today. I filed a resolution attempt with paypal: the bottom one was my first email, read from bottom first.


    From Buyer: JEFF on 1/3/2008 12:04 PST
    ARE YOU KIDDING ME????? I know it was the holidays.... ALL I ASKED FOR WAS A SHIPPING ORDER.... If that was not possible then a refund!!! I paid you and the mistake was at your end. I have NOT filed a complaint, I have NOT gave you bad feedback. HOW AM I THE BAD GUY? WHEN DID I INSULT YOU?!?!? IF this is the way you are going to be just refund my money and we will call it even.
    I called you and left a message.
    Feel free to call me.
    Jeff.

    From Seller: esl1001 on 1/3/2008 11:51 PST
    It has only been one week during the very busy Christmas season...you negative insulting impatient individual!

    From Seller: esl1001 on 1/3/2008 11:47 PST
    fine we will tie your money up for the next 2 months if that is how you would like to play it! we will not send you the frame and you can escalate this to a claim...good luck!

    From Buyer: JEFF on 1/3/2008 06:41 PST
    I have sent 6 total emails with only one response. I have also called the sellers listed number and left message. I have not received the item. If the item was shipped I requested a tracking number, never got it. Seller said in only email sent that item would be shipped on 12-31 or 1-02 after mistake at warehouse (paid on 12-18) still nothing. I would like to either get info of shipping or cancel order. Either way I have requested an answer and received nothing. I think I have been very patient.

    Man, that sucks! Completely the opposite experience for me. But the guy sure showed his true colors there by threatening to keep your money tied up. What a jerk!!!! Sorry it went so poorly, hope you get your frame out of this.

    Keep us posted.

    ended it and filed a claim. called paypal and they said when I filed a resolution it automatically freezes his acount for the money. So he has no control over it. The Customer Service lady logged on and was able to read his responses and was shocked. SHe said to escalate it to a claim and be done with him. SHe said my case is solid. I don't want the frame now.

    elzoller "So I ended up falling for the whole 29er craze "

    Funny you should say that,I just read an article in mountain bike action,that an insider said by 2015 almost every bike will be a 29er,leaving the 26 incher to company's with the likes of costco,kmart,walmart etc...Ehh I guess we will only have to wait & see.

    Great looking bikes everyone. I've gone through all of the pages in this thread and only saw one other Durango so I'm posting mine up.

    2007 Durango 2.0

    After searching my computer for images I've realized I have very few photos. I will fix that this season!

    K so Evan needs his up here too, now.... It's a Jamis and he's a (someday) offroader...
    -though he did take his Power Wheels Quad off one of my 4-foot drops in the front yard and lived... (steering linage of the battery quad was not so lucky)...

    ... and if we just ... My Jamis

    Here's my new Jamis. Just finished building it up today. It's a 2007 Dakar XCR Expert with the following:

    Mavic X317 wheelset with WTB spokes and XT hubs
    Manitou R7 fork
    Fox RP2 shock
    XT integrated crank and BB
    XT drivetrain

    I think I am really going to enjoy this frame and setup.

    New Dakar XC

    I mentioned a while back that i was debating between the 07' and 08' model dakar xc. After investigation - both bikes use the same frame - the 08' seemed to have a better fork (hardly, its a entry level bike anyway) but the 07's paint job - and the 640$ price tag, on sale - sold me. So I now have a bike to fit my needs - xc ridding around TX. This is a big step up from my old hardtail with... a 10mm travel fork. Im a little skeptical about the rear coil-over fox shock, but from what ive read, it holds up well under intended use - but obviously lacks adjustments. For now, I'm keeping the spring heavily compressed to give a hartail feel to the bike - ill eventually lessen it to fit my body weight.

    Here are some pictures after its inaugural ride in a nearby wooded area:

    08 Jamis Trail-X 3.0. Got it six months ago to "try out" mountain biking and I am upgrading soon as I have outgrown the bike. Pic taken after a snow ride around a lake near my house this winter.

    My sweet ride!!!

    So im pretty sure everyones bike here is about 4-400 times better than mine, but i love my frame so i keep upgrading...
    next upgrade is either truvativ holtz or race face equiv... desperately in need of a decent sturdy crankset.

So I now have a bike to fit my needs - xc ridding around TX. This is a big step up from my old hardtail with... a 10mm travel fork. Im a little skeptical about the rear coil-over fox shock, but from what ive read, it holds up well under intended use - but obviously lacks adjustments. For now, I'm keeping the spring heavily compressed to give a hartail feel to the bike - ill eventually lessen it to fit my body weight.

    Here are some pictures after its inaugural ride in a nearby wooded area:

    I have a fox float on my rear right now & all has been perfect,but my old fisher had a coil & boy was it maintenance free & took beatens.

    Whatever the next step up from Clydesdale I AM... a heffer i guess...
    But over the week i've been having issues with bike shop and crank problems so i ordered new crank... Race Face Evolve DH. 22-34-Bash, 175 mm, with new BB
    Its nice... And now all i need is to take it to a decent bike shop that knows what they are doing to have it installed.

    This years Exile is one of the cleanest rigid 9ers out there IMO. I love it!

    Don't go 1x9...go 1x7 Sturmey Archer internal. A little heavier, but still singlespeed'ish and pretty dang tough!!

    Do you see the difference in our frames? Look where the top tube meets the seat tube. Like below...

    My '03 Durango, which has sat in the garage for the past five years...
    Upgrades:
    Ritchey Pro Logic pedals
    Serfas bar ends
    1X9 conversion
    semi-slick tires (the Kenda in the rear is still like new, the Bontrager up front has not held up well at all)

    2004 Komodo Team 1x9 / Burly XC rig

    Okay guys...this is the second time I've built a 2004 Komodo in the last week, but the first frame had a tweaked rear triangle.

    So I got the replacement Komodo frame in yesterday. I put Diabolus BB cups on it and finished the build today.


    I Dremeled out the cable guides to run full length shift cable:



    Blackspire Blackguard helps keep the chain on with the 1x9 setup...bling,bling Diabolus cups


    Plenty of guide ring clearance on this one for some reason:


    Notice how the tire sits centered on the new frame, but shifted to the left on the old on:

    I hear you on clean, but the rear wheel that comes with the 2008 has a cassette freehub on it. So I just have to throw my derailleur, cassette, and shifter on it instead of building a whole new wheel.

    Back to SS for the winter, though.

    It's still a work in progress. At the time I made the switch to 1X9, I lived in an area with no decent mtb action whatsoever (nothing but flatlands full of meth-head tweakers...Plumas Lake, CA). I did a bit of dirt jumping and could not get the chain to drop.

    Now I've moved to Chico, where there is some excellent mountain biking to be had, and the chain was dropping like a hot potato. I shortened it the other day, but haven't yet had a chance to hit the trail again.

    I'm still researching and trying to decide exactly what I want to do with regard to chain retention...either a bashguard sandwich or a Rohloff (leaning toward the Rohloff).

    I also plan to get a non-ramped chainring since I'd like to give 34T and 36T both a try. The 32T isn't quite enough for my liking.

    Ahh...Rohloff. The epitome of clean! If'n I could only afford it.

    I actually lengthened my chain last night 1 more link b/c the cage on my rear derailleur was stretched out too close to the crankset causing a more severe chainline on the bottom that on the top. Not a big deal, but it just made a little more noise. With one more link, it allowed the cage to contract a bit more moving it away from the crankset a little.

    +1 on the sandwich. Mine tastes good.

    Hi,
    You have a very nice bike there. I have an 05 expert that I am thinking in putting a new fork with a little more travel. Right now it has a Minute 2 100mm.

    How does your bike feel with the 130mm? Do you recommend it?

    Thanks!!

    Yes, it is a Cane Creek thudbuster ST. It adds almost half a pound to the bike. But it is very plush (unlike telescoping posts, I have one of those and it sucks). I love this seatpost and would recommend it to any hardtail rider. I can ride for hours and my lower back and upper body feel so much better at the end of the ride than with a regular seatpost. Once you get past the weight it adds to you bike and realize how much more energy you have at the end of a ride you can really appreciate it.

    08 Dakar XCR

    Had her for about 4 months now and rides pretty sweet. I've upgraded most of the stock components. I had FSA carbon bars but I just put the original Easton EA 30's back on. Anyway, here's a pic:

    Nice XCR. I have a 2007 XCR Expert. Really nice riding bike. Love the Fox shock with ProPedal feature. Nice and smooth fully open on the decents too. I have ridden stuff with confidence on this bike that I never could have on my old KHS FS. No contest.
    I ride at ludicrous speed

    Thanks, I only have two rides on that fork and so far I am very pleased. This fork replaced a Minute 2 with adjustable travel, very nice, but heavy. I can tell the front end is lighter when climbing and getting over things. Possible upgrades from here are Hydro's and a platform shock. It will continue to evolve.

    That is a very nice looking ride, congrats!!

    I also have an 05 frame with an 100mm minute 2 and thinking on upgrading the fork. How much travel does the Vanilla have?

    130mm internally convertible to 100mm.

    Best fork I've ever had.

    What he said, I haven't converted it, I thought I would roll with it at 130mm for a bit and see if I like it. It does handle a little slower in the twisties.

    Are you running it at 130 or 100? If 130, do you like the geometry?

    I guess I am a moron, but I can't figure out how to upload pictures to the thread! I would like to get them so they display in the thread, and others won't have to click a link to load the pictures. If someone can give me directions I would be quite thankful.
