Whats the chances I can find
a 2011 Jamis Coda elite in a 23" frame? I know chances are slim but man thats what I want! Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks in advance
Good luck with that.
Seriously, though, you're probably looking for the frame size most likely to be found left-over - that's a big man's frame. Your best bet is to go to Jamis' website and get the list of every retailer whose distance from you is comfortable. Then start making phone calls. Lots of phone calls. Not many dealers will sell/ship online. The only two I can think of off the top of my head who have Jamis are Bicycle Bananas in Nevada and Funseekers (Palm Desert Bike Rentals) in California. Neither show 2011 Elites in stock, but you never know until you try.
I wish you luck. That's one heck of a bike (I ride a Coda Comp) and it'll be worth your while if you find one.
Why an '11? Specific color? You'd probably have more luck with a 2012.
The 2012 shows it wont be out till winter 2012. That and I like the black more than the gray. But after riding my 1978 roadace today for a 20 mile ride( the most since highschool 1981) my feet went numb, I need to find another road/light trail bike soon.
Dave I will try your advice and see if they even made any lol. I did sent Jamis a message from their site. Nothing yet.
