I recently posted about a hybrid bike for a petite female. Turns out, a local shop has a 14 inch Jamis Coda (2012) in stock. I'm going to take a look at it this weekend. Based on the specs, it doesn't look like the Jamis Femme has a carbon fork. Does that matter? I've heard rave reviews about the steel frame and carbon fork but for some reason the Femme bikes aren't equipped with the carbon.
I'm going to test ride it anyway but am wondering if the Jamis Coda Femme w/o the carbon fork is still a good bike for the price.
