    Which one? They come in several different types Dakar XLT 1.0, 2.0, 3.0 - Dakar Sport, Dakar XC Pro, XC Expert, XC Comp, and just the plain Dakar.

    I bought an '03 Dakar XLT 1.0 for my wife and its a nice bike. She loves it just hates the color. The component spec on it is hard to beat for the price point. I handles really well and she does light downhill on it.

    If you want more info try: http://www.jamisbikes.com/full_suspension.html or reading reviews at http://www.mtbr.com/reviews/2004_ful.../index_J.shtml for the 04 models. 03's can be found here: http://www.mtbr.com/reviews/2003_ful.../index_J.shtml

    You have one of the most powerfull research tools right at your finger tips use it.

    I have a jamis dakar 1.0 2004. I like it, like blackdiamond said the you cant beat the price for the compontes it comes with. The bike realy does make up for my lack of experience and gets me some hairy situations. just hold on and keep pedeling and the bike will take you through some rough trails.

    I've seen a few frames, and one built up @ my LBS. They look great, and the owner says that they are a great bike, and an even better value. I'd pull the trigger!

    I have the '04 Dakar XC Expert. I LOVE the bike! I test rode a few Marins and a Santa Cruz before I bought it. I think it rides better than both of the others and it was about $300 (US) cheaper, too. I say go for it!
