I picked this bike up early yesterday morning. A 21". Had to special order it, as the LBS didn't carry them in stock. In fact, they didn't have any 2015 Coda's in stock either. The shop owner said that regarding the Jamis hybrid line, he doesn't sell Coda's and only sells the Allegros bc a lot of people don't do research and assume that aluminum is the best for all applications. For that reason, he doesn't stock them. I figure some people buy aluminum bikes based on the look, those thick tubes that just look sporty and fast. Maybe I'm wrong. Not hating on aluminum bikes tho, I would have gotten one if that's what I was looking for.
So I wasn't able to test ride a Coda Sport at that shop, but I had previously ridden one, so I knew what I was going to be riding.
Haven't put much more than 5 miles on it so far. Had to go to work right after I picked it up yesterday. Just got back from a quick ride to the park and back with my son, and I'll take it for another spin this afternoon when it gets a bit warmer.
I feel good about this purchase, feel like I did my due diligence. I hadn't been on a bike in years, and knew next to nothing about parts and lingo before I started researching a little over a month ago. I have much to learn still, but it's going to be fun.
Cheers and Happy New Year!
