been seriously looking at this bike as an upgrade from my (too small) NRS3 frame. I ride aggresive XC and have had no durablity problems with the NRS (I weigh 200 lbs...on the road to 190lbs). I've always had this feeling that the NRS could bend or break under heavy XC singletrack riding. Do you guys think the DakarXC expert will be able to take the abuse better than the NRS?

Yes, just keep an eye on the bushings. They tend to work loose before they're broken in. I'd take all the pivots apart and put alittle loc-tite in them to save you the hassle of having to rig together your rear triangle 12 miles out on an out and back late in the afternoon with a nasty thunderstorm approaching.
