    Miscellaneous Jamis Dakar XAM II '09: Ultimate Trail-TamerMountain trails vary from loose-over-hard fireroads to rock gardens that look more like Martian terrain to winding rut-ridden singletrack where your bike seems to point everywhere but straight.  The XAM II feels at home in all those conditions--absolutely.  It is, by its very design, an all-conditions bike falling somewhere between the all-mountain XC bikes and the tank-like downhill rigs.  The wide Kenda 2.3 tires are like velcro to the ground it touches so loose-over-hard terrain might as well be asphalt.  The teaming of Fox's 36mm Talas and DHX 5.0 reduces rock gardens into mere pebble patches.  And the super strong and super stiff 7005 aluminum frame will not bend to any winding singletrack demands.  The XAM II is a value that's very hard to beat too.  Compare what you get with the XAM II versus other bikes in the same category and price range.  You won't find low-end componentry or the misleading "house branded" parts mix in the XAM II.  And to top it all off--Crank Brother's Joplin seatpost and TruVativ's Hammerschmidt come standard!   Frame: 7005 aluminum, 150mm travel mp3 linkage design, cartridge bearing pivots, Fox DHX Air 5.0 shock with 10mm hardware, replaceable derailleur hanger Syncros Hard Core Inside headset, with 20mm shim stack, 1 1/8” Fork: Fox 36 Talas-RC2, external low & high speed compression damping and rebound damping rebound adjustors, hydraulic bottom-out resistance, 20mm thru axle, 36mm stanchions, 100 -130-160mm travel positions Components: Sram X.O Mid Cage rear, TruVativ Hammerschmidt internal front Sram X.0 Trigger, zero loss travel, 2-step front shifting TruVativ Hammerschmidt crankset with TruVativ bash guard, 170mm (15”), 175mm (17-21”) TruVativ Hammerschmidt integrated BB Crank Brothers Acid, large platform clipless pedals Avid Elixir hydraulic disc brakes with 185mm front & 160mm rear rotors, TaperBore lever with integrated reservoir Synrcos FL 35 bar, 31.8mm O° x 4° sweep x 35mm rise x 670mm Synrcos FL stem, 31.8mm bar bore, 6° rise x 80mm (15”) 90 mm(17”) 100mm (19-21”) extensions Syncros FL saddle, leather cover, SL foam, composite shell, hollow titanium rails Crank Brothers Joplin, 75mm range adjustable height with remote lever, 31.6 x 350mm, with alloy QR clamp Wheels: Mavic XM317 eyeletted disc rims, 32H, Syncros Race disc hubs, 20mm thru-axle front, WTB 14g stainless steel spokes Kenda Nevegal, 26 x 2.3”, folding bead Published Weight: 33.80 lbs Geometry Size Top Tube Head Angle Seat Angle Standover Approx.
