Jamis Dakar BAM I (MSRP $3250) — We took the proven 7-inch mp3 rear suspension from last year’s BAM, pumped it up to 8 inches of terrain-swallowing travel so it’ll take the drops you used to bail on. It’s active and plush thanks to a 2.67:1 leverage ratio that squeezes the most out Fox’s DHX shock, with minimal pedal or brake feedback, keeping you in complete control. We gave BAM downhill-inspired angles for descending confidence, and a lengthy top tube that lets you breathe on the ascents as you make the most of the mp3 suspension’s stable pedal platform. A new unified bell crank and CNC’ed pivot hardware keeps things laterally stiff and torsionally tight so you can power out of one switchback into the next.
