Every Jamis youth bike uses size-specific items like grips, saddles and cranks that enhance comfort and control by providing the best possible bike fit. We focus on designing frames with low stand-over’s to take much of the awkwardness out of getting on board and dismounting after. We trim as much weight as we can with lightweight aluminum frames on many of the youth models and use aluminum parts where possible (the limiting factor here is working within a youth bike appropriate price point) to work towards that make-it-as-light-as-possible goal.
The Jamis Hot Rod's frame design offers plenty of stand-over clearance for the youngest of new cyclists. It features real ball-bearing (not plastic bushing) wheels with 16 spokes that will roll smoothly and hold up to lots of use. The crank and headset on the Hot Rod also offer full ball-bearing construction, so the 'lil speedster can pedal and turn comfortably and securely. Our full-length and full chainring-wrap chainguard keep clothes and legs cleanly and safely out of the way of the chain, while a set of fenders not only keep puddle spray off the bike AND the rider, they also help to keep feet and hands away from spinning wheels. Those wide 2.125" tires offer a large contact patch for stability and control. And, they're pneumatic, not rock-solid, so they can be filled with just the right amount of air to provide a comfortable ride full of fun. There's a handlebar safety pad and a safety bell which little tykes love to ring to let others know they're coming through!

The full-length and full ring-wrap chainguard on the Jamis Miss Daisy keep clothes and legs cleanly and safely out of the way of the chain. Those attractively painted fenders keep the rain and mud off the bike and the rider, and look cute to boot. The soft and comfortable foam grips feature a smooth vinyl cover that is embossed and stitched to match the saddle and decal theme. Those wide Brooklyn Speedway tires offer a large contact patch for greater stability, with a smooth tread surface for easy rolling, and hold plenty of air volume for a more comfortable ride. The pedals offer a non-slip insert that keeps feet and shoes in full contact even when wet for safe and secure pedaling, too. Every 16-inch Miss Daisy offers stabilizing training wheels that assist the young rider in learning how to pedal, steer, and balance a bike for the first time. The training wheel support struts attach securely both to the rear hub axle and the frame itself so that the training wheels don’t rotate out of plane with the rear wheel, preventing tips or spills.

TOP FIVE THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW Laser's mini MX-Moto design offers plenty of stand-over clearance for young riders and a head-turning, two-tone paint finish that will be the talk of the neighborhood. The over-sized blades and leading axle dropout of the Laser fork assures it will be up to the task of getting there and back safely. If a steel or alloy part is not painted or anodized, we protect it with a black electro-plating which enhances the corrosion resistance of that part. The satin sheen of the finish looks good too. The Laser's full-length & full ring-wrap chainguard keep clothes & legs cleanly and safely out of the way of the chain. Every 16” Laser offers stabilizing training wheels that assist the young rider in learning how to pedal, steer and balance a bike for the first time. The training wheel support struts attach securely both to the rear hub axle and the frame itself so that the training wheels don’t rotate out of plane with the rear wheel, preventing tips or spills.

Jamis Codas have been some of their most popular bikes for years, and for good reason. There’s the smooth-riding Reynolds Chromoly frame, the well-thought-out geometry, the heads-up riding position, and the smart component selections, from the super-wide gearing range to the easy-adjust stems: these bikes are simply some of the best and most versatile around.
Comfortable, enjoyable mobility: that's Citizen. This is the ultimate low-carbon-footprint, sightseeing machine. It's a low-impact and fun workout for new cyclists and a zero-emissions way to get around town. We can't think of a better way to be a good Citizen. Easy to look at. Easy to get on We're super proud of the Citizen's sleek frame design. With an arcing top tube for the "men's" frames and s-bend top and down tubes for a super-low step-thru 'women's" version. In fact, we hesitate to designate either with gender specific labels because the version with the easy-access, low step-over top tube is suitable for anyone with limited hip flexibility who might be challenged to swing a leg over the rear wheel when mounting & dismounting. And easy to ride When it comes to recreational riding, nothing gets more uncomfortable faster than having to pedal more weight than necessary. That is why Citizen 1, 2 & 3 are built with lightweight 6061 aluminum tubing. In fact, our aluminum Citizen frames are at least a half-pound lighter than our famous steel coda street bikes. We design comfort into the naturally stiffer ride of the aluminum tubes by specifying larger volume 38c tires and adding a few millimeters to the chainstay and wheelbase length. Ride position A usual complaint from new or returning riders trying to get into the cycling groove is feeling uncomfortably perched forward with too much weight on their wrists and having to crank their necks backwards just to be able to see in traffic. We specifically designed our Citizens to remedy this. The large diameter 700c wheels push handlebar height up and shorter top tubes pull handlebars closer to the saddle, all to mitigate forward lean. Our 4-inch rise handlebars sweep back at a natural hand-grasp angle with a long-quilled or angle-adjustable stem that allows for a wide range of adjustment to tune handle bar height and reach perfectly for each ride. Where it counts Our super plush saddle features memory foam padding (Citizen 2 & 3) or extra high-quality polyurethane padding (Citizen 1 & Citizen) for optimum support with maximum comfort. The slip-resistant suede-type top prevents sliding and the burnished side panels reduce leg friction while pedaling. Elastomer springs help soak up high resonance road vibrations. Offered in gender-specific sizes. Why 700c? So why go with a Citizen instead of an Explorer or a Hudson since they all seem to offer many of the same comfort and quality attributes? It's simple: if your riding will be primarily on the road or on smoothly graded trails, the larger diameter road-bike sized 700c Citizen wheels roll faster with less rolling resistance and roll over potholes and railroad tracks more smoothly than the 27.5" wheels of the Explorer and Hudson. Geared to go The drivetrains on our Citizen 1, 2, & 3 all feature long cage rear derailleurs, full- size 48/38/28t triple chainring cranksets, and big 11-32t or 14-34t gearing in the back. This gives you the dual advantage of having fairly tall gears for controlled pedaling at speed on descents as well as really low gearing for easier pedaling uphill. It's a rider-friendly combination that's made the Citizens a perennial favorite of recreational cyclists.
These may be the most affordable 29’ers in Jamis’ stable, but there’s nothing entry-level about the performance of these bikes. They took all-new frame styling and married it to the proven Dakota geometry, then added a suspension fork, 29-inch wheels, a 24-speed drivetrain, and hydraulic disc brakes for real trail prowess. Best-in-class performance and big hoops don’t have to mean big bucks, and the Durango proves it.
The dual-sport Jamis DXT is a pumped-up version of the Allegro fitness bikes. DXT Sport Step-Over has a greater 24-gear range to take on steeper hills and tougher terrain, along with wider, more trail-capable tires for access to more riding areas. You’ll have no problem stopping on a dime with hydraulic disc brakes that offer outstanding braking power and control in any conditions, while a suspension fork smooths out those choppy roads and rough trails for a pleasant ride, wherever you take your DXT.
One ride on Jamis' Quest Sport is all it takes to fall in love with the celebrated ride of steel. Its Reynolds 4130 double-butted chromoly frame and fork deliver speed, comfort, and durability. Equipped with a 24-speed Shimano drivetrain and easy-spinning compact cranks, you have the perfect gear range to climb the hills and master the flats. Uphills or down, the Quest rolls smoothly on Alex wheels and sports high-quality Jamis components.
Our Ventura bikes borrow heavily from the race-proven geometry of our Xeniths and Icons to help keep you in front on the local Saturday ride. But we’ve softened the edges of that geo just a bit for a more comfortable and confident ride so you can head out again on Sunday, still fresh and ready to hammer your buddies one more time.
If pedaling to explore the entire mountain and shredding every downhill is your thing, the Jamis Hardline C3 delivers. Its 160mm Fox Rhythm 36 fork keeps your tire glued to your line of choice with another 160mm of rear travel lying in wait, built on a Fox Float DPX2 Performance Series EVOL shock and 3VO, one of the most advanced suspension designs available.

A Race Face crank drives power into Shimano’s 1x12-speed SLX drivetrain that shifts fast enough to keep up with your rowdiest descents, while providing a wide range that lets you self-shuttle and proudly earn your fun... and some bragging rights. Push that fun envelope on the way down, because the 4-piston Ice-Tech SLX brakes harness fade-free power from another realm to keep you just this side of too-fast, all while a Race Face Aeffect R dropper post supports you in a dialed position so you get the most out of every inch of trail.
In a race against the clock there is no hiding. You need every aerodynamic advantage in a time trial or triathlon—both races where the elements can be unpredictable and, at times, brutal. Headwinds, crosswinds, even tailwinds all favor a machine which can knife through the air as quickly as possibly yet ride and handle like a real bike when called upon. The race-proven UCI legal T2X is the new standard of TT/Tri fast.

Portal - noun: DOOR, ENTRANCE; especially a grand or imposing one. Pass boldly through to the other side and impose on the most fun you've had on two wheels with the Jamis Portal C2.
