Product Description

We're big believers in 29ers, and their roll-over-everything, trail-taming momentum. Last year's Dakota D29 bikes were incredible machines, a smart application of cutting-edge carbon technology with big hoops. And we upped the ante for 2011. We literally broke the molds for our big-wheel bikes, retooling for pumped-up, 1-1/8" – 1.5" tapered head tubes. The bigger-diameter steerer adds a lot of rigidity to the control center, and that pays dividends with 29-inch rolling stock, letting you muscle out of ruts and really improving all-around control authority. It takes some weight off as well. We went with 2x10 drivetrains and oversize 185 mm front brake rotors, so you'll have big-range gearing and big-fisted stopping power that's a perfect matchup for those giant treads.

Date Reviewed: June 20, 2014

Strengths:    Light, responsive and fast. Coming off a heavier Moto 29'er and now climbing hills I couldn't dream of with the Jamis. Solid and fast on the way down too.

Weaknesses:    Shifts a little rough and stock tires too skinny but am reaching just to mention a negative with this awesome bike

Bottom Line:   
Have been riding mtn bikes since they were invented. Owned many top of line 26"s and one other 29'er before this. Is my last bike. Am 47 now and riding like I could 10 years ago again.

Strengths:    Great overall value, good X9 setup, tuned in, bike tracks and rolls very well

Weaknesses:    Jamis customer service, warranty and support is really poor to say at least.
Do not expect any support or courtesy from them past the obvious.
Even if they are aware of a major product defect they still make you pay for labor which in my case was more then the defective products value (thats their game).
Jamis saved money on main components such as wheels (WTB Speed TCS) which will not hold up for long.

Bottom Line:   
Great bike, handles well,good components (X9) for price.
Be prepared for no service / warranty / support past the obvious.
Try to find a phone number for Jamis.....none is listed on their whole web page.

Submitted by Jason Barton a Cross Country Rider from Aliso Viejo, CA

Date Reviewed: March 29, 2010

Strengths:    Stiff and fairly light, wide gear range, solid component spec.

Weaknesses:    Stock Shimano/WTB wheels and Deore front derailleur could be better.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is an XC monster! The stiff carbon frame, big wheels, wide gear range and remote lockout shock urge me to mash the pedals and ride faster. With a pretty solid component spec and competitive price point, it holds its own against the more well known brands...
