    Couple of Questions

    I'm going for the freeride lite concept.

    I love fast and aggresive descents, jumping but i still like trail riding and the occasional long bike trip. Now, I decided to go for a "Freeride Lite" concept. I Haven't got much money so i think i'm buying a Jamis Dakar XAM, with looks for upgrade. With this i have acceptable travel (5.5inches) in the back and a bike that can climb. BUT, i have a couple of doubts.

    Will an e13 drs or a blackspire dewlie fit on this bike? would you recommend i use one of these cause i have a friend wit hthe same bike complaining about his chain being all over the place. and i still need two rings.

    Also, what is the difference between the XAM frame and the Devinci Frantik? I see the same geometry, saw the numbers and theres almost no difference, except for a ew degrees in the headtube angle ( comparing devinci's medium frame with jamis' 15 frame). What travel does the devinci have? i didn't find it in the webpage.

    Thanks,

    With a med rear der, proper adjustment & correct chain length you shouldn't need a chain guide. If you need one check out Wicked Racing.

    some bikes have excessive chain growth
    and some people are to lazy to properly adjust their chains and let the guides do it for them
