    2011 Jamis Dakar Sport XC

    Looking for a bike for a backup bike and came across a 2011 Jamis Dakar Sport xc. The pics look pretty clean. from what I have read, it looks like an entry level model. The fork looks to be the major fault with it besides that the bike is pretty heavy. Is it a design that is worth putting the money into a better fork down the road? Any other down falls with this bike?

    According to Bicycle Blue Book, asking price should be around $400, but it is listed for $650. How accurate is that price?

    I have various forms of this bike over the years, 2003, 2005, 2009, all of them were given/sold to people I know and all are still working and ridden today. It's a decent entry level bike for XC and light trail, I would not recommend serious drops. It is relatively heavy, but depending on the build can be lighter. $650 seems a bit high, a year and half ago, Jenson sold them for $600 new, but economies change. I still have and ride my 2005 Dakar XLT, the bigger brother. It has been updated quite a bit and is still running nice.

    Thanks. Would you happen to have the frame specs for a 19"? Just curious on how Jamis compares to Trek since that is what I ride mainly now..

    Jamis has them on there site, go to catalog download here:
    CATALOG ARCHIVE
    At then end of each catalog is the specs, both parts and geo. Mine were all 19 as well. The bike/frame as been almost exactly the same since 06, a small change in chainstays, but same geo.
