    Thanks,
    I can't believe they dropped the Horst. The estimated cost per bike is $4...

    I have some niggles on the XLT though, maybe you guys can shed some light on this.

    The kiss: there is the possibility that the braze will touch the seattube under heavy compression. If I let the air out the shock it does touch. Has anyone had a problem with this?

    Also, there is play in the link that is attached to the top tube. There is a small spacer that creates the play, however, if I take it off the play is gone but the link then has stiction. Could anyone with an XLT check this? Just grab the rear wheel and rock it to both sides while holding the seat. Look at the link that's attached to the top tube, does it move from side to side?

    Thanks,
    Trond

    THis isn't my bike, but I found this pic of it online from someone who is selling the exact same thing. Since I bought it a week ago, everything is stock like this guy's. But I don't like the pedals and the seat so I'll probably change it. Later on, I'll probably change the fork.

    Here's the Big Pig

    This is my XLT 1.0. As you can see, it is basically stock, with Shimano pedals being the only major upgrade. I have a rotating cast of tires; I have Specialized Enduro Pros, various WTB tires, and the stock Hutchinsons. I have yet to find a tire that I really like. I also have a hardtail; a 2001 Eureka LE...will post it's pic later.

    And for what it's worth...

    I've never had any problems with "the kiss". I called Fox before I purchased the bike, and ordered the correct springs for my weight, both front and rear. I weigh ~ 250 pounds, with gear, and I've never had any problem with the brace hitting the seat tube.

    It was cobbled together from spares...trust me there's no way I could afford to keep a family of SIX riders on the trail with bikes and gear any other way but with spares, second hand stuff, ebay and internet deals, etc, etc, etc...

    I should learn how to put bikes together....I'll do that this summer. I have two other bikes, not quite well in shape...actually, in really bad shape...ah, heck, if they were fixable, I wouldn't have bought a new bike.

    Well, my gf has a bike that she hardly rides. She says there's something wrong with it. I think with some of the parts of the other two bikes, I can make her bike really nice. If I switch off the frames, she could get a nice steel frame, but then I need to learn how to put everything else together. I think I'll just browse around the tools section for a couple of weeks and see if anything would come up to help me.

    Eureka!!

    I posted a pic of my XLT a couple of days ago. This is my hardtail: a 2001 Jamis Eureka that I purchased as a frameset, and built up with sale parts and stuff I had laying around. It has been a great bike.

    (04) Jamis Dakar XLT 3.0

    Here is my newly assembled Dakat xlt 3.0. I just bought the frame and transferred the rest from my old bike. since the fork's travel Marzocchi MX comp ETA is only 105mm, I have to set the rear TALAS into the middle setting to match it. I love this bike and someday I'm gonna get myself a 125mm TALAS rl fork to make it a good trail bike.

    excuses

    My wife just had our first child two months ago and is very dedicated about getting into good shape. But she hasn't bikes since she was a child and will have to start in the garage. She does want to learn how to mountain bike, but she can pace herself.

    Ah, good excuse, I guess. I'm learning how to ride properly myself anyway. After tomorrow...I'm going to be more or less free for an entire 4 months! Well, I'm looking for a job too...after buying the bike, I have no money, so I can't afford to go to school. It looks like I'll be doing some grunt work again...*sigh*

    True that! My wife's bike has been hanging upside down in the garage for 2 years. It still has the little rubber whisker thingies on the tires! Let's try this summer to get our ladies out on their bikes!

    Awesome, mine will walk those kind of "jumps"

    I think they both could learn some things from your 10 year old. He had great positioning and balance.

    Hope to get my newly built up Dakota on here soon.

    You shoulda seen him and his older sisters (16 and 13) tear up Slickrock, Amassa Rock and Porcupine Rim out in Moab last weekend. I'm just a big old slug on the trails, I have to work at it - it's amazing at how quickly kids pick up the skills, it seems effortless when I see them tearing up a technical climb or a sweet technical descent.

    That's me spotting him on the landing. That's something that I learned from a buddy of mine - when you're working on a tough technical spot, have someone spot you or offer to spot less skilled riders. Nothing instills confidence like just knowing someone's standing there in case you muff it up. We'll stay as long as it takes working on various technical pieces of trails just having a blast working on lines and technique.

    Here's a nice shot of him doing a little drop on Porc. Rim (notice the "new" Psylo up front on his little Eureka!):

    Enough is enough

    Now I feel like a real weenie!

    I busted my fork halfway around slickrock last spring which really turned out to be good news bad news. Bad news - get to hike back from the furthest out point on the slickrock trail with my busted up 7 year old Trek 930. Good news, wife encourages me to get new bike this spring and I end up with a new Dakota!

    Her favorite trails, Elk Meadows, Switzerland, upper Buffalo Creek along the Co Trail. She actually has really improved since we moved here a year ago and now rides with a woman's group once a week.

    Your kids are really impressive. Mine is only two so is still on a rbig wheel:

    Walking out of Slickrock would just suck - sorry to hear that. Awesome news on the Dakota though.

    I am 6' 2" with a 36" inseam. I found the 19" worked best for me. The 21" frame was a bit too long in the top tube. I made some seatpost, stem and handlebar upgrades and the 19" frame now fits me like a glove.

    My Dakar

    Here is my 03 Dakar XC Comp. The pic was taken last summer, shortly after I bought it, stock setup. It's been rock solid, great spec, climbs like a dream, just a fine ride. It's my first FS bike, and I really have enjoyed it very much. Jamis is a great company -- I have an old Explorer, too, with several thousand miles on it, and it's never had a hitch. I don't know if I'd buy any other make at this point!

    My former ride

    Here's my former ride, a 01 Dakar Expert.



    The frame eventually cracked and thanks to the guys at JensonUSA I got a replacement frame after about 4 months of weekly followups. I learned during the process that the Jamis CS were difficult to get a hold of and Jenson stripped a whole bike in order to solve my warranty issue, don't know what happened later.

    I sold the frame, extra shock and front mech on ebay and bought a Giant VT2 as a replacement.

    Here is my "new" Dakar

    Two weeks ago I picked up a used Dakar frame off eBay. As you can see, the guy had stripped off the stickers and replaced them with the tribal stickers from the Manitou Black...which is cool because I have the same fork. He also had a sticker on the downtube that said "MORON"...that lasted 2 minutes at my house. Still not sure what I want to put in that big empty space.

    I still have a lot of work to do on it. Most of the parts are off the 2003 Giant Rainier had had. The headset, crank/BB, and seatpost were all bought for this frame. My next task is to get a different stem. The Dakar has a slacker headtube than my rainier so it's a little squirrely on the technical climbs. So I am going to try a lower rise stem and/or a flat bar. Just gotta set aside some cash...wife loves the health benefits of my new habit but is not so keen on the cost expenditure.

    Ah, I'm actually going into debt myself to upgrade my bike, but since I'm new to the sport, I've got a lot to learn. Hahahahha, but riding is so fun I can't see how it could be a bad thing! Nice bike!

    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!

    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.

    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....

    Good job! Sweeeeet greeeen Komodo!

    Jamis fans should appreciate my girlfriends sweeeeet Komodo!

    People stop all the time, esp. around the "racing scene", to compliment her bike!

    Built spring '04 - her first "real" bike. She's now riding trails on this bike which I ride on a 5x5 fs! Incredible investment for less than $600 completley built (fork and brakes came from my old HT... rip)

    23 lbs in all! Killer geometry!

    If the frame were any bigger, she'd have to fight me for it!
    I'd trade my 2002 Stumpjumper M4 for one of these in a heartbeat!

    Lucky girl!


    Pictures taken before X-9 triggers, wider rims and tires were added - now running 19mm and 24mm rims, w/ 2.35 Kenda Blue Groove / 2.25 Fat Albert tubless, and 9 speed.

    Specs for the geeky:

    * 14" Komodo frame NIB
    * Marzocci MX Pro ETA 105mm 2003 w/ custom green flames!
    * FSA Orbit XLII headset NIB
    * Truvative Stylo SL cranks / rings NIB
    * Raceface BB NIB
    * SRAM X.9 triggershifters, front and med-cage rear d'er (shown w/ gripshifters)
    * XT 760 90spd cassete
    * Avid BBDB 160mm
    * Avid SD7 levers NIB
    * Titec Hell Bent 1" riser bar 2003
    * RockShock suspension seatpost NIB
    * Mavic 317's hand built w/ bling-bling red nipples, laced to Specialized Stoutfly hubs (replaced w/ Mavic F219 / WTB Dual Duty 24mm)
    * WTB SpeedShe saddle NIB
    * Salsa stem & seat clamp
    * Kenda BG 2.35 & Fat Albert 2.25" tubelss tires (shown w/ ElGatos)

    Here's my 03 XLT lost in the middle of Frederick...

    I went for a ride at Gambrill State park. Took a few wrong turns I suppose. So I sat down to take a break and snapped off a few pictures. I had a Swinger 4 way on the frame but switched it to a Fox Propedal. Kinda liked the Swinger a bit better.

    My older Dragon

    Built this up awhile back, the parts are now dated but I can't justify replacing anything until it breaks. Its heavier than it should be, fork and wheels, but I'm 6'4" 210 so I guess it doesn't matter .

    Just Picked up this BRAND NEW 1997 Jamis Dakar Team 15 frame for my GF for $200. She had an 01 Dakota, I swapped all the parts to her new frame last nite.
    She is running full LX drivetrain (XT Chain) with Avid Arch Rival brakes w SD 2.0L levers. Titec bar w/bar ends and 05 Specialized BG grips, Titec seatpost with a Terry Liberator X womans seat. BS stem(for now) LX hubs on Sun SUB IV rims with a Tioga tires. She weights in at about 25lbs.

    I am really impressed with this frame. Especialy the Easton stamped onto the main frame tube. I pumped the shock up for her weigth and it is just amazing. The Cane Creek AD-8 seem like an amazing shock. Haven't test ride it yet, still waiting for a new front derailer(LX so it'll match the groupo). If she puts some miles on this one, we'll go with carbon seatpost and handle bars and swap out steel bolts for alum or Ti.

    And the old Dakota is going to be a single speed with left over parts in the house. For our son/me to ride it.

    Here's a link to the pics of my new '05 Dakar Pro

    Not in the woods, but tires show it was!!! It's VERY dry here, even though we had a wet March. Included also is a pic of my Trek hartail and my long travel KHS beater (Has the awaiting Gazzalodi Mud DH tire hanging above it). The KHS is my next project. New front triple/ rear shocks, Drivetrain upgrade to HONE, and new disc brakes of the Hydraulic Type.
