    I had a Jamis hybrid bike once and it was a pleasure ride. I thought it was a good value. This looks like another one.

    Don't know that one or if it's a good deal.

    What I do know is that I love my Jamis hybrid. Extremely well thought out and I love the steel feel of the thing.

    Jamis is a company whose product I trust.

    Jamis is known for its mountain bikes. I personally ride a Jamis Quest Road bike and love it!

    Small company. High Quality. Big Value.

    I own 2 Jamis mountain bikes. My roommate owns a Jamis Quest road bike and a Jamis mountain bike. They're great bikes for the money.

    The first bike I got to ride a bit was a Jamis beach cruiser, it was real fun. Then I bought a Jamis Durango around 1989. That bike served me well, took a lot of abuse. I did have a crash on it once. The forks bent due to the force. They were excellent and a replacement fork was very reasonable. Very pleased with them as a company.

    The Jamis you are looking at is a bit on the heavy side but still a good bike for the money. Jamis makes very good frames. Also, if you ever decide to upgrade or need to replace components along the way that frame should last you a long time.

    I am digging my Jamis Coda Elite. Steel feels real good. Decent components, but nothing to write home about. Works fine, nice and speedy and I'll upgrade components as they wither and die.
