Note*This bicycle is a return that has had very little use. There are a few light scratches on the crown of the fork. This bike is fully functional and includes all original packaging.
Jamis bicycles has a long history of innovating revolutionary bikes. This dates all the way back to 1979 with the introduction of the Earth Cruiser. The Earth Cruiser helped to spark the beach cruiser revolution. This revolution hasn’t stopped with Jamis, merely shifted focus. Today Jamis develops and produces top of the line Road and Mountain bikes. Leveraging their 30+ years of experience, Jamis is able to craft Race driven performance with trickle down for the average rider as well. Jamis has a goal to build the perfect bike, an impossible goal. To Jamis, it’s the only one worth doing.
The Jamis Dakota D29 Race is no exception to Jamis’ quest to build the perfect bike. Jamis takes advantage of proven technologies when crafting their frames. The Kinesis Alloy frame is no exception. The XCT race is super stable and performance driven. The tapered headtube allows for a stiffer front end and thus a more responsive and stable ride. A Carbon Fiber monostay, replaceable derailleur hanger, and sloping radius top tube round up the features that make this frame great.
A good component build is what makes or breaks a bike. The fork outfitted on this Dakota D29 Race is a Rock Shox Reba RLT29 fork. This fork features Dual air spring with motion control damping. In addition the Rock Shox Reba also features external rebound and low speed compression control with 100mm of travel. Drivetrain is just as important as anything else, so it makes sense that Jamis has selected Sram drivetrain. A Sram X.9 rear derailleur is matched up with a Sram X.7 front derailleur. Shifters a very vital as well, so it makes sense that Jamis selected the X.7 10 speed trigger shifters with match maker clamps to clean up your handlebars. All of these components work in conjunction with the Sram S1000 PF30 crankset. This 2x10 drivetrain saves weight while offering a more versatile gear set.Components:
