These may be the most affordable 29’ers in our stable, but there’s nothing entry-level about the performance of these bikes. Best-in-Class performance and Big Hoops doesn’t have to mean Big Bucks and the Durango proves it. Durango Frame Design The Durango frame features a sloping top tube that optimizes stand-over clearance while adding great looks at the same time. The over-sized down tube and head tube to offer plenty of strength, stiffness and fork crown clearance. Pedaling Platform The aluminum frame on the Durango is beefed up to include a larger 34.9mm seat tube, which allows us to spec an over-sized 31.6mm seat post. The larger diameter post flexes less, providing a firmer pedaling platform. Zero Stack Internal Headset Durangos feature a Zero Stack internal headset that places both the cups and bearings inside the head tube instead of outside. This reduces the total stack height (including the head tube), which is especially beneficial on big wheeled bikes. The larger diameter head tube also provides a larger weld interface at the critical head/top/down tube junction. Top Tube Cable Routing Running the cables up under the top tube keeps cables and housing out of the muck for more precise and reliable shifting performance. Dual Water Bottle Mounts Every Durango offers two water bottle mounts located inside the main frame. This provides excellent hydration capacity in an easily accessible position. Replaceable Derailleur Hanger Because it’s much easier and much less expensive to replace a derailleur hanger than it is to repair or replace a frame, every Durango frame offers a replaceable derailleur hanger designed to yield in a crash before the frame does. - 6061 aluminum frame - SR Suntour XCT 30 HLO 29" suspension fork - Alex TD26 29" wheel set - 24-speed Shimano Tourney components - Tektro M275 hydraulic disc brakes
These may be the most affordable 29’ers in the Jamis stable, but there’s nothing entry-level about the performance of these bikes. They’ve taken all new frame styling and married it to their proven Dakota geometry. Best-in-Class performance and Big Hoops doesn’t have to mean Big Bucks and the Durango 29 Expert proves it. The Expert ships with a SHimano 3x8 drivetrain and powerful Tektro mechanical disc brakes.
