 For the price I paid for this bad boy, the few parts needed to be upgraded made this bike amazing. The Tora's are tolerable, but the Bar 2.1 on the back needed to be replaced by a Fox because the Rock Shox just sucked. The Cranks are malleable, and bend easy. A double with bash is the next upgrade and will definately get rid of any flex. Other than that, some drivetrain upgrades may benefit the bike but aren't crucial.

Jamis Dakar XCT 1 (MSRP $1775) — The all-new XCT splits the difference between pure cross-country performance and aggressive trail riding. It’s light and fast, with the stable pedal platform of our proven mp3 suspension so it climbs like an XC racer. But it’s also plush and tough, so you can use all 5 inches of suspension travel and plunge down descents like a Dakar XAM. Using XCR frame tubing keeps the heft down, with slightly relaxed angles and a longer wheelbase to add more high-speed stability without taking too much of an edge off the XCR’s crisp handling skills. Throw-in at least 130 mm of fork travel, plus powerful hydraulic discs and aggressive tread and you have everything you need to stay in control no matter where you pedal.
