Jamis 2017 Quest Sport Chromoly Road Bicycle http://www.rbinc-sports.com
Steel: Absorbs road shock, Bumpy roads and pot wholes better then any aluminum or carbon frame!
SIZE SPECIFIC FRAME DESIGN
Size Specific Design (SSD) is the Jamis design philosophy and technique used to create the best possible riding bike for each size rider. Rather than limiting frame size variations to just different length top, seat and head tubes lengths, we take an all-inclusive look at each frame’s total configuration. Every SSD frame will also feature size-specific BB drop, rear center, fork offset/trail and SST technology.
STEEL SPECIFIC GEOMETRY
For a greater range of handlebar and rider positions, we’ve fitted the Quest series frames with taller head tubes. Coupled with a slightly longer wheelbase and relaxed head tube angle, the result is more confident steering & handling and a more comfortable position for longer rides whether competitive or recreational.
Taking advantage of the high tensile strength of steel without having to worry about strength degradation due to welding is incredibly liberating. Welding steel often results in a 40% strength loss, requiring thick tubing walls as an offset. Not so with the air-hardened Reynolds 631 steel alloys used on our Quest Elite frames. This material actually gets stronger at the weld zones, allowing Reynolds to draw the tubing thinner for a lighter, stronger frame.
REINFORCED HEAD TUBE
Reinforcing rings are brazed on the head tube to prevent the headset and fork movement from deforming the thin-walled chrome-moly head tube.
GENDER SPECIFIC GEOMETRY
Our Quest Femme versions offer women’s specific frame sizing & geometry and component selection, including anatomically adjusted top tube lengths, head & seat tube angles, fork rakes & women’s specific saddles, with handlebar, stem and crank lengths all dimensioned to optimally fit women for greater comfort & efficiency.
CLASSIC LOST WAX CASTING
Lost wax casting (aka investment casting) is an expensive process used mainly for the complicated shapes of high quality lugs and fork crowns. The dropouts of the Quest Elite are lost wax molded, as are the classically shaped seat collars of all our steel road bikes.
FULL CARBON MONOCOQUE FORKS
Manufactured by the same team that produces our Xenith Endura frames, the carbon forks on our Quest series models are formed as true monocoque forks, in one continuous unit (steerer/crown/blades) for optimal strength and performance.
