MAKE AN IMPACT
Blame it on the economy and the accompanying back to basics mentality. Or praise public awareness of green issues and the value of low-impact lifestyles. But all of a sudden bicycles are a Very Big Deal. Everyday people–folks who haven’t been on a bicycle in years, if not decades–have suddenly rediscovered the thrill of cycling. For us, passionate cyclists who strive daily to deliver products that get people of all ages, abilities and aspirations to love bikes and biking just as much as we do, it doesn’t get any better than that.
The bicycle is a marvelous invention, with an impact that is almost completely, one hundred percent positive. For individuals (exercise!) as well as for the environment (reduced carbon footprint). A bike is one of the world’s most powerful instruments for change. We know because cycling forever changed our lives, and we’ve seen it change the lives of so many others. That’s why we want to make cycling converts out of everyone, and that’s why there’s a Jamis for nearly every cycling arena, for almost any rider.
It’s that passion for cycling and everything cycling can do that fuels and sustains our efforts to build the best possible bikes. It’s why we build category-defining superbikes that put professionals atop podiums at road races and mountain bike events. It’s why our computers are humming day and night crunching FEA data and carbon fiber lay-up simulations. It’s why we devote precious R & D resources to making even our kids bikes and cruisers as light and easy to ride as possible. And why our 2016 lineup is clearly the best we’ve ever produced.
But we’re at this not just to build better bikes. We’re in this to build better lives, to make YOU better. That’s pretty heavy. It’s a lot to carry on two wheels. But that’s how powerful a bicycle can be. And that’s why we’re so committed to building the best bikes possible.
When people ride bikes, good things happen. Experience it yourself, on a Jamis.

The showroom that is designed with all energy efficient devices was designed with a collaboration of the owner Richard Browne, his sister Tara Browne from Yabu Pushleberg. The art mural is a fun artistic take on funky work that Richard was interested in piecing together with the company Moss and Lam for the 65′ by 16′ art mural. The bicycles are hanging in a curve design and can be raised or lowered by electric lifts that are controlled by an I phone, I pad or one of the 4 Apple computers in the space.

You are more than welcome to come by and see our show room and to see what we have in stock although It’s best to figure out which year model and size before you come as we have 80 different models, 6 sizes per model and 4 years of product with 240 units built (lower end product more then one size) Hence if you walk in the chance of us having something built in your size and price range is low especially higher end product. You would have to come back later after we pick up and build from our warehouse. Alternately if you would like to go ahead with the bike we would love to order it in for you. We require it to be pre-paid or a minimum of $50 deposit when bringing in the bikes as we have had issues in the past with people not showing up and not having room to store a built bike. We will let you know when the bike is ready for pick up which usually takes one day to build. For higher end models over $500 we also can order in from the USA product if we are out of stock but we would need full Pre payment and 4 working cause to bring product in.
Bikes come with industry standard Jamis warranty and includes 2 free service tune ups up to one year after purchase.
Let us guide you to the best choice of bicycle:
Are you ready to purchase immediately or when in the future? What price point are you looking for? How tall are you? What is your weight? What is the type of riding you will be doing (on road, off road, both)? What is your main objective in a bicycle; comfort, weight, upright riding position, low aerodynamic position, if full suspension do you have an idea of how many inches of travel you are looking for? Is Weight a big concern? If you are looking for specific type of riding or racing, freeride, downhill in the future let us know.

Why a hybrid?
These represent different options on a Hybrid. What is a hybrid? Mountain bicycle position with fast light thinner road wheels. Lighter then a mountain bike and faster but less durable if you hit big pot wholes and curbs. The DXT though acts more like a mountain bicycle with suspension forks and wider rims and tires but at a weight penalty. Great way to get to work and have some fun as well. We also have higher end Hybrids $800 to $2500: The more you spend on a bicycle the lighter its, the better everything works, and the more durable all the parts are so you will save minimum $300 on drivetrain parts with in the first 3000 kms.
HYBRIDS WHY WOULD THEY BE THE RIGHT CHOICE.
September 3, 2014 · by campagnolorider · in Bike Pictures. · Edit
Hybrids have been around for the last 20 years and they are a great option for different types of riding. They are a mountain bicycle position but with Road wheels so they are lighter and faster then mountain bicycles. But they are less stable and less durable then a mountain bicycle so you have to be comfortable riding a bicycle. They come in many different forms some more upright and comfortable hence the comfort hybrid, a version in-between called a commuter hybrid finally a light more aggressive position called a performance hybrid and finally a dual sport off road hybrid that acts more like an off road mountain bicycle. When you go from a comfort hybrid to a performance hybrid the weight goes down because comfort and adjustability makes the bicycle heavy with springs, suspension forks, wider saddles. Comfort bicycles and the off road dual sport bicycles have wider tires and rims that work better on dirt roads, sand and trails but also make the bicycle heavier. The dual sport hybrid, on and off road version will be heavier as well but can get lighter if you get a hi end version with lighter parts. These are great as they have the ability to hit mud and off road trails but are lighter then mountain bicycles unless you get a hi end version which can also be light weight.
When buying a bicycle its best to initially spend more because that equals: lighter, better working parts, more durable parts and materials and more performance. If you buy something low end it will cost you in the future because replacing the chain, freewheel, chainrings later is more expensive overall then spending that money initially on the bicycle and getting more durable parts. Plus all that riding time you have a better quality bicycle that works better and is much lighter. This gets magnified if you can find a late model discounting bicycle.
WHY ARE ROAD BICYCLES FASTER THEN MOUNTAIN AND HYBRID BICYCLES?
September 3, 2014 · by campagnolorider · in Bike Pictures. · Edit
Many people come to are shop with the question: Why are hybrids and mountain bicycles so much slower then a road bicycle with drop bars? As a top pro triathlete I was always looking to make my road bicycle faster and physics are very important in this goal so here is a scientific explanation of why they are faster. There is a number of reasons the most important is weight balance and your butt. Your bum muscle is the biggest muscle in your body and when its stretched fully it will give out the most amount of power. In the drop bar position your bum which is the gluteus maximus is fully stretched and can give you the most amount of power at this position. The problem is this position is hard on your back neck and arms so you have to build flexibility and strength in all of these to get to this position comfortably. Other important feature is that a road bicycle has even weight balance on the front and rear wheels so the tire resistance is lowest when this occurs. That is why proper bicycle set up on a road bicycle should be 50 percent weight balance front and 50 percent weight balance on the rear. This will also allow you to go around corners with out slipping at the maximum speed. slightly moving your body upwards will give you more weight on your rear wheel so it will slip first and you can adjust your speed to not fall. Hybrids and mountain bicycles the more upright you are the more weight you have on your rear wheel which really slows down the bicycle. This also creates a lot of wind drag and slows you down the faster you go cause your body is acting like a brake. In the low aerodynamic road position your wind drag is at the lowest. This can also be created on a hybrid or mountain bicycle by bending your arms on downhills and straights to increase your speed. Some other smaller advantages are hi pressure thinner lighter tires on road bicycles so the drag due friction on your tires to the pavement is much lower making the bicycle more efficient and faster. Some bicycles have wide tires with aggressive off road treads that increase your rolling resistance are slow and loud but give you traction on sand, mud, rocks, and wet conditions. Road bicycles are much lighter and one can climb up hill because of this advantage. New road bicycles are aerodynamic and can save you wind drag but this is more important at hi speeds. If you want speed then go with a low road bicycle but you need flexibility and strength in your arms back and neck so lots of riding weights and yoga all help in that goal.
WHAT ARE DISC BRAKES AND WHATS THE ADVANTAGE DISADVANTAGE- HYDRAULIC AND ALSO CABLE.

Mountain Bicycle wheel size 26, 27.5 (650b), 29”?
Advantages of 29”:
Easier to get over rocks logs. If your weakness is tough terrain even if you are short and or light then this might be the best choice. If your scared of tough terrain best choice! Great for beginner riders scared of tough terrain.
More surface area so better climbing on slick rock.
Lower rolling resistance so faster on roads and straight aways which is important if you have a long road ride before the trails.
Less chance of flats due to larger point of contact.
Quickest acceleration between trees and tight turns.
Really good for heavy and tall riders.
The wheel has lots of momentum so once you get it going fast you just need to keep it up to speed.
Because the bottom bracket is below the axles the bicycle is much more stable.
Great for fast downhill riding – lots of stability.
Perceived feeling of more stability because of the gyroscopic effect of large wheels with momentum.
Disadvantages of 29”
Longer wheel base so slow around corners. And tough through tight winding tree slalom trails.
Slow acceleration and deceleration.
More expensive then 26er bicycles.
Heaviest of the three so tough for long climbing. Not as bad if it is short climbs that you can keep your momentum up.
More expensive parts if you break a rim or spokes or have a flat tire. But having said that the whole industry has 29ers so this is becoming less significant over time.
Hi Stand over height so if you have short legs might not be the best choice.
Slowest on roads (if your light weight not a big issue).
To get them as light as 26” bicycle you have to spend a lot of money – carbon fibre. If you got the money then sometimes a great choice.
Advantages of 26”
Usually you can get a great deal on an older model so you get the best parts for the money.
Easily available parts if you are travelling and less money for them.
Best for short and or light weight riders.
Lightest of the three bicycles. If you run up steep hills with the bicycle on your shoulder then this is the best choice.
Low stand over height so good if you have short legs.
Best Acceleration of the three even though 650 is close so great on switch back, tight corners and through trees and slalom.
Disadvantages of 26”
Slow on roads and straights especially when you weigh a lot.
Bad traction uphill.
Worst over Rocks logs transitional riding.
Worst for downhill.
Slowest on straight aways and road riding.
Highest chance for flats.
Worst for stability.
Advantages of a 27.5 650b in the Jamis Line up. Jamis is the best to go with as they have the most experience and other lines have hi stand over height and geometry that is not fine tuned.
Same wheelbase so they are as quick around turns.
They are great to go over rock and logs almost as good as a 29er.
They have low stand over heights the same as 26”.
They accelerate around corners the same as a 26” bicycle.
Mid weight maybe a bit more then the 26” bicycle.
As your bottom bracket is below the wheel axles the bicycle is more stable then 26”.
Great on fast downhills.
Great choice even if your short tall or heavy.
Really the best choice of the three wheel size bicycles. Unless you are really tall and heavy or short and light this is the best choice.
Disadvantage of the 27.5” or 650 or 650b pretty much the same.
Can be expensive as it has been out for about 4 years. It is getting put in less expensive bicycles especially in 2014.
Parts can be harder to find then both 29 and 26” plus more expensive. Rim, Spokes, Tires and Inner tubes however less significant in the future.
Advantages of Disc brakes vs Cantilever brakes:
More braking power – Hydraulic brakes even more.
Moderate rim damage does not affect braking.
Not affected by rain or snow and mud.
Pads last longer and are easy to replace with no tools.
Brakes don’t go out of true when brake pads get thin. Cantilevers need re adjustments every time the pads get a couple mm thinner.
Less prone to fading on long down hills.
You can make the bicycle rims lighter weigh so less rotational weight.
You can build a wheel with super wide rims and huge tires.
Great if you want the ability to put bigger tires and flexibility with fenders on road bicycles.
Discs can bend but can be bent back easily with the right tool or even pliers if need be.
Disadvantages of Disc Brakes:
Heavier then cantilever.
Require specific hubs and disc brake mounting tabs on rear wheel and fork.
Sometimes squeak – Oil on the discs can make this occur. (This can be cleaned off)
Can be hard to set up initially.
Discs are vulnerable to bending when transporting the wheels separately from bicycle.
Disc brakes can interfere with Pannier racks and bags.
Some bicycle designs can be dangerous with front wheels coming off the forks.
