I’ve got a Dakar Bam 2, and I love it. Stem and pedals are an easy switch. You just have to decide what length and rise of stem feels best to the style of riding you prefer. As far as pedals go, if you are primarily riding trails, I would recommend SPD’s. I use them on my trail bike 99% of the time, unless I’m going to be on really technical terrain, then I might switch out to flats.
