    Here I am picking up my lovely new Jamis Dakar XC from TE gal Catrin in Indianapolis just this past weekend:



    I have not gotten to take it out for a ride yet, but my DH got it re-assembled for me today and set up the saddle height. It seems like it's going to fit me perfectly, and it's absolutely gorgeous. Thank you again, Catrin! It was a pleasure to meet you!

    (Ooops -- looks like I need to update my sig to include it...)

    Emily - I am SO glad that it fits you so well and that she has gone to a good home! As much as I loved that bike it was always a touch small for me, but there are reasons why I went for a smaller size. It was great to meet you, your DH and your dog who REALLY wanted to rush into my apartment

    I also forget just how red my hair is until I see a picture!

    +1! I love that it's staying "in the family" so to speak.
    Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Continue to learn. Appreciate your friends. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is.

    Heheh, and I forget how light mine is -- used to be much browner.

    Yes, this bike is the perfect size for me. I actually needed the saddle up at least as high as you had it, if not higher. It's a gorgeous bike, and I can't wait to ride it!

    Sweet! For me it actually needed to be at least 4 inches higher for non-trail use...which is why it has such a long seat-post. I am so glad that you are happy with it and looking forward to hearing about your first ride!

    I've thought about going with a darker dye, but the red works and it is dangerous to start mixing colors. The last time it became a lavender-purple-pink color...that wasn't my intention

    Thanks, JoAnn!

    I finally got the Jamis out on a 20+ mile utility ride today (to Wal-Mart and Natural Grocer), and it rides like a dream. Although I really bought it for unpaved roads and trails, I am realizing how nice it is to have a fullie for the urban roads here in the Kansas City area, with their many cracks, potholes, and areas of uneven pavement. I've been riding my Trek until I got slicker tires on the Jamis, but now that I have that, will ride the Jamis a lot more for our in-town rides. It fits like a dream, is super comfortable, and gorgeous to boot. I am one lucky lady!
