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.
Every Jamis youth bike uses size-specific items like grips, saddles and cranks that enhance comfort and control by providing the best possible bike fit. We focus on designing frames with low stand-over’s to take much of the awkwardness out of getting on board and dismounting after. We trim as much weight as we can with lightweight aluminum frames on many of the youth models and use aluminum parts where possible (the limiting factor here is working within a youth bike appropriate price point) to work towards that make-it-as-light-as-possible goal.
If pedaling to explore the entire mountain and shredding every downhill is your thing, the Jamis Hardline C2 delivers. Its 160mm Fox Factory 36 FLOAT fork keeps your tire glued to your line of choice with another 160mm of rear travel lying in wait, built on a Fox Float DPX2 Factory Series Kashima EVOL shock and 3VO, one of the most advanced suspension designs available. Its Stans Flow MK3 wheels and Vittoria Martello tires rail on sculpted park runs and rip through rooty enduro tracks without batting an eye. A Truvativ crank drives power into SRAM's 1x12-speed X01 Eagle drivetrain that shifts fast enough to keep up with your rowdiest descents, while providing a wide range that lets you self-shuttle and proudly earn your fun... and some bragging rights. Push that fun envelope on the way down, because the 4-piston Magura MT7 brakes harness fade-free power from another realm to keep you just this side of too-fast, all while a Race Face Aeffect R dropper post supports you in a dialed position so you get the most out of every inch of trail.

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. Step Right In Our step-through version is exceptionally easy to mount thanks to the low BB DROP and super-low position of the S-bent top tube. No more swinging a leg over the rear wheel, or pulling a knee up to the chest to step over the top tube to mount a bike. 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
Portal - noun: DOOR, ENTRANCE; especially a grand or imposing one. Pass boldly through to the other side and impose on the most fun you've had on two wheels with the Jamis Portal C2. Its high-modulus carbon fiber frame swings your rear wheel through 130mm of micro-tracking 3VO suspension, renowned for its trail-contouring ability that goes hand-in-hand with big-hit burliness. A 130mm Fox 34 FLOAT fork easily handles the rough stuff up front, ensuring your trail-spec'd Stan's NoTubes Arch MK3 wheels track right where you want them, ready and willing to dig deep, wrapped in Vittoria's Martello tubeless tires. The entire trail opens to you when you've got the proven combo of a huge-range SRAM XO1 Eagle 12-speed drivetrain and Magura MT8 brakes to ensure you have the leverage when you need it, the speed when you want it, and the power to reign it all in when the speed gets critical. And, the Portal will feel as familiar as walking out your front door thanks to a rider-tuned Race Face cockpit, and an instantly dialable stance, courtesy of your Race Face Aeffect dropper.
In a race against the clock there is no hiding. You need every aerodynamic advantage in a time trial or triathlon—both races where the elements can be unpredictable and, at times, brutal. Headwinds, crosswinds, even tailwinds all favor a machine which can knife through the air as quickly as possibly yet ride and handle like a real bike when called upon. The race-proven UCI legal T2X is the new standard of TT/Tri fast.
