The Fresh Jamis Dakar Sport XC Full Suspension with our tried-and-true mp2 suspension prove that entry-level doesn’t have to mean beginner grade MSRP : $999.95. These offer a real multi-link chassis with asymmetric chainstays that offer all the benefits of near-vertical wheel travel, suspension that remains supple and active under power and braking, and a solidly planted rear footprint when the going gets steep and you’ve gotta throw the power down Weight : 31.75 lbs
The uneven chainstays deliver unmatched lateral and torsional stiffness that permits you to crush the pedals and float over the piece of land because the rear tire maintains nearly Velcro-like contact with dry land for killer traction, whereas the rigidity of the tapered head tube and steerer up front permits you to strong-arm through ruts and off-cambers with tact and management.
User Review Jamis Dakar :
Strengths: Price is Cheaped
Weaknesses: Fork and Tires
Bottom Line : I love this bike. I knew from the instant I weekday down it absolutely was a pleasant ride. I detested the manitou splice and skim legion frightful reviews on this website. The fork on succeeding model up (the capital of Senegal professional or no matter it happens to be called) was a trifle higher, however i weigh 210 and needed one thing a little a lot of durable. I opted merely} upgrade the fork right off for $260 instead of pay the $600 for succeeding model up that also had a simply ok fork.
Drive train is ok, it gets the task done, i favor the brakes. low-cost Anne Hutchinson tires wore out quick.
My one major downside has been a skint the chain keep once two 1/2 months, however jamis was sensible concerning causation out a replacement swing arm. I havn’t detected of something like this happening to anyone else, therefore i figure I simply happened to urge one with a foul weld.
The bottom line is i extremely recomend this bike, it will have one or two weaknesses however nothing huge for a full suspension underneath $1000. i believe it’s adore most bike that value rather more.
