Jamis Explorer A1
$699.95
COMFORT AND COMPETENCE The Explorer has been one of our best-selling bikes, ever since its introduction in 1982. Originally designed as a mountain bike, the Explorer has since evolved into a very practical and very comfortable sport comfort bike. Inspired in part by our Hudsons and Citizens, without sacrificing the versatile on or off-road competence of the original Explorer, the newest generation Explorer is all about getting the most fun out of the ride, in STYLE, with performance and comfort features that make getting around so effortless it hardly feels like exercise. LIGHTWEIGHT ALUMINUM When it comes to recreational riding on a so-called comfort bike, nothing gets more uncomfortable faster than having to pedal more weight than necessary. Explorers are built with lightweight 6061 aluminum tubing, resulting in a bike that is as easy to ride as it is to load onto a vehicle. - Lightweight aluminum frame, with comfortable upright ride position - SR Suntour XCE Suspension fork to soak up impacts - Strong double-wall alloy rims and stainless steel spokes - Shimano EZ-Fire Plus, 24-speed shifting - Shimano crankset with integrated chainguard - Tektro direct pull brakes with Shimano levers - Suspension, alloy extreme comfort seat post - Jamis Comfort with memory foam and bumper springs

With its lightweight yet durable ALUXX aluminum frame, upright positioning, and smooth-rolling 700c wheels, Cypress is an easy rider on all types of roads and paths.

Jamis Citizen 2
$659.95
Comfortable, enjoyable mobility: that's Citizen. This is the ultimate low-carbon-footprint, sightseeing machine. It's a low-impact and fun workout for new cyclists and a zero-emissions way to get around town. We can't think of a better way to be a good Citizen. Easy to look at. Easy to get on We're super proud of the Citizen's sleek frame design. With an arcing top tube for the "men's" frames and s-bend top and down tubes for a super-low step-thru 'women's" version. In fact, we hesitate to designate either with gender specific labels because the version with the easy-access, low step-over top tube is suitable for anyone with limited hip flexibility who might be challenged to swing a leg over the rear wheel when mounting & dismounting. And easy to ride When it comes to recreational riding, nothing gets more uncomfortable faster than having to pedal more weight than necessary. That is why Citizen 1, 2 & 3 are built with lightweight 6061 aluminum tubing. In fact, our aluminum Citizen frames are at least a half-pound lighter than our famous steel coda street bikes. We design comfort into the naturally stiffer ride of the aluminum tubes by specifying larger volume 38c tires and adding a few millimeters to the chainstay and wheelbase length. Ride position A usual complaint from new or returning riders trying to get into the cycling groove is feeling uncomfortably perched forward with too much weight on their wrists and having to crank their necks backwards just to be able to see in traffic. We specifically designed our Citizens to remedy this. The large diameter 700c wheels push handlebar height up and shorter top tubes pull handlebars closer to the saddle, all to mitigate forward lean. Our 4-inch rise handlebars sweep back at a natural hand-grasp angle with a long-quilled or angle-adjustable stem that allows for a wide range of adjustment to tune handle bar height and reach perfectly for each ride. Where it counts Our super plush saddle features memory foam padding (Citizen 2 & 3) or extra high-quality polyurethane padding (Citizen 1 & Citizen) for optimum support with maximum comfort. The slip-resistant suede-type top prevents sliding and the burnished side panels reduce leg friction while pedaling. Elastomer springs help soak up high resonance road vibrations. Offered in gender-specific sizes. Why 700c? So why go with a Citizen instead of an Explorer or a Hudson since they all seem to offer many of the same comfort and quality attributes? It's simple: if your riding will be primarily on the road or on smoothly graded trails, the larger diameter road-bike sized 700c Citizen wheels roll faster with less rolling resistance and roll over potholes and railroad tracks more smoothly than the 27.5" wheels of the Explorer and Hudson. Geared to go The drivetrains on our Citizen 1, 2, & 3 all feature long cage rear derailleurs, full- size 48/38/28t triple chainring cranksets, and big 11-32t or 14-34t gearing in the back. This gives you the dual advantage of having fairly tall gears for controlled pedaling at speed on descents as well as really low gearing for easier pedaling uphill. It's a rider-friendly combination that's made the Citizens a perennial favorite of recreational cyclists.

Jamis Hudson
$599.95 - $649.95
Think of our Hudson as part Explorer and part Earth Cruiser. Capable but cool. Casual but on it. We blended the flowing curves and shaped tubes of seemingly disparate platforms like our carbon Dakota 29’ers and our aluminum DXT’s and came up with a smart frame design that rides comfortably, casually and efficiently while making a bold statement all at the same time. Hudson Lite When it comes to recreational riding on a so-called comfort bike, nothing gets more uncomfortable faster than having to pedal more weight than necessary. Which is why the Hudson Sport is built with lightweight 6061 aluminum tubing. We design comfort into the naturally stiffer ride of the aluminum tubes by specifying large volume tires and lengthening the chainstays and wheelbase for a stretch-limo sort of ride. Easy Rider Specially designed for flat-footed starts and stops. With your weight evenly distributed over the crank for comfortable and efficient pedaling on the saddle or off. The Hudson’s laid back seat tube and lowered bottom bracket height allows riders to position their saddles for efficient leg extension and still easily reach the ground while seated for balance when stopped. The longer chainstays and wheelbase in tandem with the lower center of gravity offers a very smooth, stable ride. Get Fit All frame sizes offer an extra-long head tube and hi- rise handlebars for a comfortable, upright ride position. Where's The Other Brake Lever? The SureStop braking system simplifies stopping by requiring only one brake lever to operate both front & rear brakes. It makes riding safer too by reducing the risk of front wheel lock-up. SureStop uses the momentum of the rear wheel to actively modulate the front brake, enabling smooth, controlled stopping. With only one hand! Best In Class Comfort Our super-plush saddle features Memory Foam padding for optimum support with maximum comfort. The slip-resistant suede-like top prevents sliding and the burnished side panels reduce leg friction while pedaling. Elastomer springs also help to soak up road vibrations. Offered in gender-specific sizes. Pump Up The Volume Our Hudson tires are ready to roll, coming in a tall 27.5” diameter with a bump-chewing 2.35” width. The big benefit of that footprint is larger air volume in the tire and tube, which results in lower air pressure for a more comfortable ride than tires with smaller volumes and higher air pressures. Clean And Simple The Hudson’s alloy crankset features an outer-ring chainguard, with another full-length chainguard running the length of the chain from seatstay to chainring. So socks, slacks, skirts and dresses are well protected from the chain. - 6061 TIG-welded aluminum frame - Hi-tensile unicrown fork - Alex DC25 alloy double-wall wheel set - 7-speed Shimano Altus components
