    Need to get back on it!

    Hey all. I recently traded in install of 5 windows for a slightly used full suspension Jamis Dakar. Riding it only a half dozen times the rear triangle broke on a slight uphill. I have read some reviews on how they are pretty good with the warranty, even with second owners. I figured i would try contacting them with this problem. Any suggestions on how to go about this? And how do i find the year of the bike?

    re; Bikepedia

    Color is a good filter of what year a bike is also. For years, I thought I had an 03 bike but it is actually listed as a 2001 (based on color).

    I repainted it to make it an 03 .... lol JK

    2003 Jamis Dakar XLT 2.0

    It's not worth much: Fair $216 - $222

    I doubt that Jamis has any parts left for that bike. They likely gave them all away during a really high-volume warranty period. I had a 2005 XLT that broke in the exact same spot. Really bad design.


    I've been a Jamis fanboi for years and will confidently say that I'd never buy a used Jamis dual suspension frame from that genre / year. They had a reputation for chainstay breakage.

    Their hardtails are great though. I still ride a 1998 and 2005 Komodo.

    Here's all I've got for them:
