    xcr vs xc frame weight

    Can anyone verify the weights of the pre-07 upper mounted shock
    frame against the 07-08 mp3 frames? jamis is claiming approx
    5.8 lbs vs 6.6 for the old. In short, if the weight differential is less
    than 1 pound, how much better does the new rear shock design work? I am
    trying to justify upgrading to the new model, and love my 05
    Dakar XC.

    I just swapped a whole bunch o' parts over from my 04 Dakar XC to a new XCR frame. When I weighed them, the XCR was EXACTLY 1 pound less to the ounce, than the XC with the exact same parts.

    I just posted the XCR up on the Show us your Jamis forum. And if you dig around in there you can see my old XC with the same parts on it.
    My car is red.

    Great, exactly what I wanted to hear. Those frames have been selling on Ebay,
    So much for saving any money this winter!

    I rode the '06 XC for a year, then the '07 XCR for close to a year. Both are fine. The 2007 seems more supple, but I also have a better shock (RP23) on the '07.
