Jamis 2016 Capri Youth Bicycle http://www.rbinc-sports.com 416 787 4998
With the right start, cycling can be a lifelong pursuit—we know it’s true because that’s how it worked out for every one of us here at Jamis. We know just how important that first bike can be, and that’s why our kids’ bikes are some of the most important bikes we design and build—because if we’ve done this right, that first riding experience will be so fun it’ll carry through for the rest of their lives.
TOP FIVE THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW
Capri’s swooping frame design has a purpose other than great looks: with 24” wheels this bike offers a low standover and low center of gravity for stable, secure riding and control. We’ve even increased the wheelbase length over our 20” mountain bike to offer even greater stability, security and comfort.
A seven-speed drivetrain is enough for any girl to learn how to shift and master. It’s also enough gearing to get around the neighborhood comfortably.
Which is why we spec just one single chainring in front: to simplify shifting. We top it off with a full-wrap chainguard to keep the chain in place and clothes & legs out of the chain’s way.
Shimano’s Revoshift twist shifters and Shimano rear derailleur are kid friendly & easy to shift.
Our pedals offer a non-slip insert that keeps feet and shoes in full contact even when wet for safe & secure pedaling.
Every Capri comes equipped with a kickstand so parking doesn’t result in gouges or scratches and an unhappy new bike owner.
