Jamis created one heck of an all-day trail bike with the Dakar XCT 2. Its lightweight, responsive mp3 suspension frame climbs like a XC racer yet rips with 130mm of Fox RP2 travel, perfect for rough, aggressive downhills. Marzocchi's 44 fork adjusts from 100 to 140mm of travel to match the pitch and terrain. Plus, it's equipped with serious components like a Shimano XT rear derailleur, SLX shifters, lightweight Mavic rims, powerful Avid Elixir discs and a full spread of fine components from Ritchey. All of this translates into one outstanding bike that begs to be ridden.
