    I'm in LOOOOOOVE!!



    A couple of weeks ago, when I asked for suggestions for bikes you all thought I should try out, exile suggested the Jamis Coda. I had never heard of Jamis or this Coda, that was mentioned. So, I did as much internet searching about it and read as many reviews as I could find. All of them said what a good bike it was. They went on and on about how nimble and light it was and how smooth the ride was. The more I read, the more I couldn't wait to see what all the fuss was about. Well, today I was finally able to take one for a spin. It was everything it was said to be and MORE. One of the problems I have had with my Trek (from the very beginning!) has been that it shifts horribly. The Jamis on the other hand was so smooth it was like butter or maybe that's buttah. I couldn't get over how light it was! It makes my Trek look and feel like a tank! But the absolute BEST part is...I made my husband into a convert! He had been for years a hard core mountain bike fan. (Not that there is anything wrong with that.) But after he saw how sold I was on the Jamis, he had to take one for a spin too and loved how responsive and fast it was!

    Now I just need to decide between the Women's 18" and the men's 19" and I will be picking mine up next month! Oh, and that red is gorgeous!

    Jamis has a reputation for making a lot of bike for the money. Congrats on the decision and good luck with the purchase.
