    2013 Jamis Coda Comp vs 2013 Raleigh Misceo

    Ok, so hopefully this is the last of my threads on the topic of whatever hybrid I end up getting, but I'm left with a bit of trouble figuring out how to compare the two bikes mentioned in the title.

    Raleigh Misceo 3.0 http://www.raleighusa.com/bikes/life...misceo-3-0-13/

    Jamis Coda Comp http://www.myjamis.com/SSP%20Applica...cat_grp=strt_2

    I can tell some of the obvious differences, like the disc brakes and 2x10 on the Raleigh, but I'm not sure how to compare the components across brands. I'm also not sure what the practical difference is with the different gearing is for someone who rides on flat, flat land.

    I should also say I'm not opposed to moving up to the coda elite or down to the Misceo 2.0. Also, I plan to put 38 tires on the Coda if they'll fit. And yes, I've ridden and enjoyed both bikes and both shops are roughly comparable. I'm simply trying to evaluate if the different components might have any long term differences as I slowly become a more experienced rider.

    Anyone have any thoughts?

    If you're going to be riding in bad weather,and want discs,I'd go up to the Coda Elite. Otherwise I'd pick the Comp. The CF fork/steel frame will ride better,the groupo is nicer,and the 9spd chain(and drivetrain) will last longer and be cheaper to replace than the Misceo's 10spd.

    Really a bad idea to go 10spd on a bike like the Misceo. Sad Raleigh's drinking the coolade.

    The Jamis site has been acting up recently - the link to the Coda doesn't work. Just out of interest, what is the current price of the Jamis Coda Comp?

    Yeah, the site has been odd lately. The MSRP is, I believe, $700.

    I decided to go ahead with the Coda Comp. It just felt so great to ride. My next order of business is figuring out just how big of a tire I can get on there. I know I can do 35s for sure, but I'd love to go up to a 38 if by chance that fits. I'm thinking, though, that even if I'm stuck with a 35, since I'll get something like a Schwalbe Marathon Plus (http://www.schwalbetires.com/bike_ti.../marathon_plus) I'll be pretty comfortable on that relative to many 38s.

    I'm really liking the Vittoria Randonneur Hyper that I put on my hybrid. I went 700x32, but they come in x37 or 38 too.

    very supple 120tpi sidewall, good puncture resistance, nice bright retro-reflective sidewall stripe, well made tire.

    I've had no luck with the Jamis website either.

    I had 38s on my bike before my current set of 35s. I wouldn't lose sleep over the difference, there isn't a whole lot. I can't tell if you already bought or just planned to buy, but I've ridden both the misceo 2.0 and the coda and the coda is definitely more of a road/performance oriented hybrid while the misceo has more of an urban mountain bike feel to it.

    Since misery loves company, I figured I'd let everyone know the Jamis site doesn't work for me either.

    I keep getting brief windows where it works for me...but at this point I've got most of the coda info on there stuck in my memory.
