New Clyde Bike Jamis Coda 61cn

Got my new bike after many years of wanting one. 2021 Jamis Renegade S3. Just finished the upgrades to make it work best for me. Including: New seat, 140mm stem, fenders (Oregon) bottle cages, rack, lights.

Jamis Renegade are rated for 330lbs rider/luggage combo so as long as I keep my cargo light I am good to go!

My buddy (not a Clyde) just got a Renegade and I have to say, it's pretty dang nice. He said it's great on hills. If the Kona I ordered 6mos ago doesn't show up soon, I may be buying one - despite being over the weight rating, unladen.

I really like how you have yours set up!

Very nice! Might think about leveling that saddle before you try to rid it very far.

Love my steel 2019 Renegade and I’m a 6’4” 270# Clyde. Only problem I’ve had is the seat post sliding down, see my thread in this sub-forum.

I originally bought my Renegade to replace my Trek Domane Aluminum road bike, which was a torture device. The thin, high pressure wheel/tire combo on the Al frame was literally shaking me apart! The Renegades’s wider, tubeless, tires on a supple steel frame have been a godsend.

Wish I could put even wider tires on my Renegade, I’ve got some 44mm WTBs for gravel. I actually just built a Salsa Fargo with 35mm rims and 2.8” tires for rougher gravel and trail now that is almost like riding on pillows

I had the same seat post issue. It had a bunch of grease on it. I just wiped it off with a dry rag which leaves a thin layer. Seems to be working.
