What are your thoughts on this bike? Aside from the brakes and rear shock it looks solid.
Jamis Darkar XC

I usually advocate going to an LBS and trying on a few bikes (Trek 4300, Spesh Hardrock), however this deal seems like a good one.

It depends on what type of trails they will ride. For up to intermediate xc trails, I would rather ride a lighter hardtail. Plus, they may have to buy a different coil for the shock. It should be sturdy bike, though.

It's a lot of bike for the money. I'm not a huge fan of Saguaros (my Raleigh came with them stock), but they roll fairly well and should last.

I don't have any experience on a Jamis. Maybe someone who's owned one can chime in on whether the frame is worth upgrading around.

looks good but heavy and that can hurt on long xc rides.

But yeah hell of alot of bike for the money I would get it.
