    Smile 2006 Jamis Dakar XLT 2.0 - what do you think?

    2006 Jamis Dakar XLT 2.0 - what do you think? Too HEAVY for adventure racing? What are your thoughts. Thinking of trading in my road bike for this... Good reviews. Been out of mtn biking for years. Getting back into it... Thanks all

    its a fun bike. not heavy for what its capable of. its the one bike for everything bike. I love my 2006 XLT 3.0.

    now, define "adventure racing" that you were refering to. What type of riding what type of terrain. what your goals are and possibly your body dimension. these info will help us to give you useful suggestions.

    thanks.

    Hi Orca,

    Thanks for your help. Well...I live in Southern Ontario, Canada. Would you suggest trekking/riding with the bike 5-8 kim? I am about 6 feet and 220 lbs. The races I'm interested in are about 6 hours long...with the various disciplines... but I'm mostly interested in the bike for riding around...the race thing is just something I'm thinking of doing because my friend is bothering me to go with him...
