Entry Level Full Suspension Bicycle?

Great way to try entry level full suspension bicycle is the Jamis Dakar Sport Mountain Bicycle:

Our XCR mp4 suspension design actuates with a very slight rising leverage rate during the first 40% of travel and then it is linear for a firm, responsive pedaling platform. A near vertical rear axle path allows uninhibited suspension performance and maximum pedaling efficiency.

Riding fast with control requires steering precision, which starts with the front of the bike. Stiffening this area results in less wheel deflection, more wheel control. A tapered 1 1/8” to 1.5” head tube and steerer serves up a significant increase in rough terrain tracking and stability without much of a weight penalty compared
to standard 1 1/8” systems since the steer tube wall thickness can be reduced. Adding a 15mm QR thru-axle hub/fork interface takes steering precision over the top.

Our 10mm shock hardware is NOT the standard from our rear shock suppliers. We have to pay more for it and our production lead times are usually increased because we specify it. But the increase in lateral and torsional stiffness for our frames and the rear shock durability and performance is worth every extra dollar and every extra delivery day.
USA made Enduro® Max sealed bearings sustain 40% more load capacity
than standard radial bearings & provide more lateral support for the
multiple forces associated with mountain bike pivots.

Rock Shox’s Recon Silver TK 29 Solo Air offers 100mm of travel, 15mm
axle, 32mm stanchions, aluminum crown, lockout and external rebound
controls – all usable and functional “on-the-fly” adjustments that can be
felt by the rider.

Shimano’s Deore 38/24T crankset and 11-36T cassette supplies a 2×10 setup
with a wide range of gear ratios to take on any terrain.
Shimano M396 hydraulic brakes use non-toxic mineral oil that does not
absorb water from the air reducing the chance of bubbles forming in the

Enduro®’s external BSA bottom bracket is produced in the USA using
Grade 10 Chromium balls that are twice as round as the industry standard.
Hardened & polished High Carbon Chromium races yeild extremely tough,
durable and noiseless ABEC-3 precision.
