racked up awards in every bike segment you can imagine—moun-
tain bike of the year honors, editor’s choice awards in road, comfort
and mountain bike categories. Over multiple years, in both cycling
enthusiast press and mainstream media. And in competition all
over the globe.

We’ve earned Bicycling magazine’s coveted Editor’s Choice award


for best road bike and best mountain bike seven times, with twice
as many nominations. We’ve been Bike of the Year in Mountain Bik-
ing magazine a half-dozen times. We make Outside magazine’s an-
nual Buyer’s Guide—where they recommend just 5 or 6 bikes each
year to their readers —so many times we’ve lost count. We’ve been
listed as a Sport Comfort #1 and #2 Best Buy in a world-famous
consumer publication (who won’t let their name be used—but its
lab-coated staff is known for its exhaustive testing protocols). And
it’s not just our hi-tech flagship bikes that garner all the medals, or
the opinions of expert cyclists that are making these calls, either.
Our bikes are so good it’s obvious to anyone—our everyday machines
have even been featured in AARP magazine as a raecommended buy.

And it ain’t because we’re spending more ad dollars than anyone


else—we’re just cranking out bikes that are seriously that good.

ALL ABOUT
SPEAK JAMIS simplicity, our hardtails are the real thing. These bikes track and
steer with conviction, with awesome hook-up that maximizes trac-
tion, and with those perfect proportions that fit like your body as
though it was custom-made for it.

Even our children’s bikes are standouts. We make them durable,


tough, and easy to ride. And we pack them with more value than
any other bikes we build, because we know the people riding them
are the most important people in your world.

And that’s what it really boils down to: Your world. It’s where you
ride. It’s where you live. It’s where you get to choose who you want
to be, the type of rider you are. The type of cyclist you aspire to be.
That’s who we had in mind when we first set pen to paper over 30
years ago. And that’s why we’re thrilled to be big—it means we’re
Our road bikes continue to be top of the heap, whether they’re not alone, that we’re making cyclists happy. Being big lets us pay

Home/pb Colavita. bikes we could, bikes we’d love to ride. Turns out, they might just
be the very best bikes on the planet. And there’s one built for you.
Our flat-handlebar road bikes are the best thing going for fitness
rides and cross-town commutes. And our fixed-gear bikes are leg-
ends in the urban riding community, where speed and soul reign
supreme.

In the dirt, our proven mp3 (and soon our new mp4) multi-link rear
suspension continues to set the standard for refinement and per-
formance. Whether it’s the big hit world of Diablo Freeride Park or
the cross country racing world of Jason Sager and the Team Jamis
XC squad, our full suspension bikes deliver the goods. And deliver
them first, with the sort of suppleness that soaks up big hits, small
bumps, and keeps those tires firmly planted whether you’re carving
a deep bend or scrambling for traction.

Our hardtails are legendary, with the most dialed-in, tuned, refined
geometry on the planet. Whether your jones is high-tech carbon
fiber, lightweight aluminum or supple-yet-efficient Dragon steel;
big air or the flow of a great trail; long-travel forks or minimalist

Full Suspension

2011 Dakar XCR Series


When it comes to covering open ground, nothing gobbles up more trail with more efficiency faster than these XCR’s. Our
mp3 suspension delivers 100mm of active travel for superb bump control and a firm, responsive pedaling platform that
doesn’t waste a watt of climbing energy, or hold you back when the going’s fast.

XCR Bell Crank & Shock Hardware.


Our mp3 carbon fiber bell crank and 10mm shock
hardware work in tandem to significantly increase
lateral & torsional stiffness, while also enhancing
rear shock durability and performance.

Shimano XTR Double Crankset.


Though Shimano’s XT and SLX 10-speed groups
only offer a triple chainring crankset option, their
new XTR group offers both triple and multiple
double options. We’ve spec’ed the 28/40T XC race-
inspired set-up for the XCR Team. With Hollowtech II
manufactured crankarms for maximum stiffness and
minimum weight and HG-X chainring tooth profiles
and Double Spike for crisp, instant front shifting.

Shimano XTR Cassette.


This 10-speed cassette is a work of metallurgical and
technical genius. Designing around a 3-piece spider
arm and making the five largest cogs out of titanium
means there is virtually no weight penalty in moving
from the previous generation 9-speed XTR cassette
to the new Dyna-Sys generation 10-speed cassette.

Asymmetrical Chainstays.
The XCR’s chainstays are asymmetrical, with an
elevated straight stay on the non-drive side and a
dropped curved stay on the drive side. The drive
side must be dropped & curved to clear the front
derailleur and chain, but running the non-drive
side straight from the dropout to BB pivot reduces
weight while significantly stiffening the rear triangle
laterally. There’s more tire clearance, too.

XCR Carbon Fiber Dropouts.


The XCR Team and Pro chainstay is 99.5% full
carbon fiber, including the dropouts. An alloy disc
brake mount is integrated into the carbon on the
non-drive side to provide additional strength under
braking loads.

10
Full Suspension
Tapered Head Tube and Fork Steerer.
Riding fast with control requires steering precision,
which starts with the front of the bike. Stiffening
this area results in less wheel deflection, more
wheel control. Moving to a full 1.5” head tube and
steerer achieves this, but adds unnecessary weight
and bulk, and limits stem choices. But a tapered
1 1 /8” to 1 1 /2” head tube and steerer serves up a
significant increase in rough terrain tracking and
stability without much of a weight penalty compared
to standard 1 1 /8” systems since the steer tube wall
thickness can be reduced.

FEA Optimized Design.


We use powerful, state of the art, composite
manufacturing software to analyze and perfect our
layup schedule. The result is optimized layup for
optimal stiffness, greater durability and lighter weight.

SST - Size Specific Tubing


Every carbon XCR frame features SST -- Size Specific
Tubing -- with tube diameters designed specifically
for each frame. Larger frames get larger, stiffer OD’s;
smaller frames get lighter, smaller OD’s.

XCR MP3 Suspension


The XCR’s mp³ multi-link suspension design is
optimized for efficient pedaling and the lightest
possible weight with a low center of gravity for tight
and fast cornering.

SID World Cup.


The Motion Control damping system on the Sid
WC offers efficient small-bump performance
and incredible reliability in a highly tunable
package. It features Dual Flow rebound to
accurately control beginning and ending stroke
rebound, with tunable low-speed compression
and PopLoc lock-out.

NOTES:

2011 Dakar XC Series


This is the frame platform that’s won numerous industry accolades and Bike of the Year awards. Slightly different in design
from our XCR’s, but not that far removed from XCR performance. In fact, we see many other brands returning to this type of
design after experimenting with other elaborately marketed multiple-pivot designs. For 2011, we’ve upgraded the XC frame
to include asymmetrical chainstays for a performance boost.

Jamis Trail Saddle.


Our mountain bike saddle features a pressure
relief channel for soft-tissue relief, a mid-width
platform that comfortably fits a broad range of
body shapes and a tall-tail pedaling platform.
With scuff-resistant corners.

31.6mm Pedaling Platform.


Increasing seat post diameter over 15% from 27.2mm
to 31.6mm not only assures a stronger pillar, but the
decrease in “platform” flex under pedaling load while
seated is significant.

Rock Shox Rear Shocks.


The Ario R offered on the XC Comp weighs in at
just over 200 grams and uses the same damper
body and air can as the more expensive Monarch,
but loses some of the bells and whistles like sag
markings, swivel valves and negative air adjustment.
The Bar R spec’ed on the XC Sport offers adjustable
rebound damping with a single air valve and pre-
set negative air chamber. Both are light and easily
adjusted to suit rider and riding style.

Asymmetrical Chainstays.
The Dakar XC’s chainstays are asymmetrical, with
an elevated straight stay on the non-drive side and
a dropped curved stay on the drive side. The drive
side must be dropped & curved to clear the front
derailleur and chain, but running the non-drive
side straight from the dropout to BB pivot reduces
weight while significantly stiffening the rear triangle
laterally. There’s more tire clearance, too.

16
Full Suspension
XC mp2 suspension.
Dakar XC’s mp2 suspension system is active with a near-
vertical wheel axle travel path, plus excellent lateral &
torsional stiffness for rear wheel tracking precision.

Solid Parts Performance.


Both Dakar XC Comp & Sport offers robust components
chosen to ensure durable and consistent performance on
every ride. This includes 100mm travel forks with 32mm
stanchions, disc brakes, disc-specific rims, platform
pedals and 31.8mm over-sized bars and stems.

Geax Rubber.
Geax is quickly making a name for themselves
in the offroad world and their Mezcal tires ride
exceptionally fast with a semi-slick tread pattern
that delivers exceptionally great cornering on more
difficult trail conditions and steeper slopes.

Fully Integrated Drivetrains.


The best shifting bikes are the ones spec’ed with fully
integrated drivetrains. Which is what you will find
on both Dakar XC models: from the shifters, to the
derailleurs front and rear, to the cranksets. Whether
it’s the 30-speed SRAM drivetrain on the XC Comp or
the 27-speed Shimano drivetrains on the XC Sport.

Disc Specific Rims.


Disc hubs twist during braking. This twisting increases
“pull” load on the nipples in the spoke bed, possibly
leading to a shear. To counter this, we spec Mavic rims
with stainless steel eyelet inserts on the XC Comp
which strengthens the rim by spreading the brake
load. On the XC Sport, the Alex TD25 rim is actually
reinforced with additional material in the spoke bed.

2011 Dakar Sixfifty B Series


The benefit of a 650B wheel size? That you get the best of both the 26” and 29” wheel worlds without the negatives of each.
650B wheels offer almost all the lightweight, acceleration and flick-ability assets of a 26” wheel while delivering the great
“roll-over anything” atrributes of a 29” wheel without the weight penalty. It might just be the perfect wheel size for everyday
trail riding for everyone. We sure think it is.

MP4 Suspension.
The key difference between our mp4 and mp3
suspension designs is in the linkage and shock rate.
Our XCR mp3 design actuates with a very slight
rising rate, perfect for a short travel XC platform like
the XCR. Our Sixififty B mp4 design is geometrically
very linear in the first 40% of suspension travel, then
falls slightly over the balance of wheel travel. With
the naturally progressive suspension characteristics
of an air shock plus some additional tuning of shock
internals the Sixfifty B’s ride is supple, with the rear
wheel in constant traction. The mp4 suspension
design is also lighter! Thanks to the asymmetrical
chainstays and the much shorter seatstays. Weight
of the 2011 Sixfifty B alloy frame is at least 250
grams lighter than the 2010 version!

2.6-to-1 Shock Leverage Ratio.


There are multiple benefits of a low wheel-travel-
to-shock-stroke ratio. Longer shock and seal
life because shocks can be pumped to lower air
pressures without performance detriment. Less
rebound damping is required, so more range of
adjustability is available. The lower leverage ratio is
also going to be more plush on bigger hits.

10mm Shock Hardware.


Our 10mm shock hardware is NOT the standard from
our rear shock suppliers. We have to pay more for it
and our production lead times are usually increased
because we specify it. But the increase in lateral &
torsional stiffness for our frames and the enhanced
rear shock durability and performance is worth every
extra dollar and every extra delivery day.

Asymmetrical Chainstays.
The Dakar Sixfifty B’s chainstays are asymmetrical,
with an elevated straight stay on the non-drive side
and a dropped curved stay on the drive side. The
drive side must be dropped & curved to clear the
front derailleur and chain, but running the non-drive
side straight from the dropout to BB pivot reduces
weight while significantly stiffening the rear triangle
laterally. There’s more tire clearance, too.

135 x 12mm Maxle Thru-Axle.


Securing the rear wheel to the frame by threading it
into the frame dropouts is not only safer, it’s stiffer.
Increasing the rear axle diameter from 10mm to

White Brother’s plush 130mm travel Fluid fork with
linear air spring is dominating the 650B market at the
moment. Featuring a 20mm thru-axle for stiffness and
security, a full open oil bath damper, 32mm stanchions,
a re-inforced steer tube and beefed-up crown. The
Fluid offers air pressure, compression and rebound
damping adjustability.

American Classic
American Classic wheels are light, responsive
and lusted after by many, and their 650BXC
wheelset doesn’t disappoint. The rear hub features
a patented 6 pawl, cam-actuated engagement
system specifically designed to handle the constant
re-accelerations of XC racing and trail riding. With
flange spacing designed to optimize dishing. The
front hub, has a beefy 25mm axle in addition to the
20mm thru axle, making it extra stiff and strong to
resist fork flex. Total wheelset weight: 1702 grams!

2 x10 SRAM Drivetrains (Sixfifty B2)


How can 20 speeds be better than 27 speeds? Because
with SRAM’s 12-36T 10-speed cassettes and 26/39
chainrings, a full gear range with less redundancies can
be achieved, which results in a lighter/faster/better bike.
Eliminating the third chainring reduces the stress of
cross-chaining on the chainrings, the cassette cogs and
the chain. And it narrows the distance between your feet,
which improves alignment of hips, knees and feet for a
faster, more comfortable ride

3 x 10 Shimano Dyna-Sys (Sixfifty B1).


Adding a 10-speed rear cassette for mountain bikes
ostensibly would eliminate the 3rd chainring, without
sacrificing an adequate gear range. But Shimano is
calling their 30-speed drivetrain a whole new way of
shifting. Having a wider gear range at the back with
more closely spaced gears creates smoother and more
intuitive shifting, more efficient and powerful pedaling,
and allows the rider to stay in the middle and largest
chainrings for a higher proportion of the time.

2011 Dakar XCT Series


“As good as it gets” is never good enough at Jamis. Which is why we’ve completely re-designed the XCT for 2011. Featuring
our new mp4 suspension design, asymmetrical chainstays with thru-axle dropouts, tapered head tube and post mount disc
brakes in two full carbon versions and two full alloy version. They’re significantly lighter, stiffer and faster than last year’s
XCTs, but just as plush and tough.

MP4 Suspension.
The key difference between our mp4 and mp3
suspension designs is in the linkage and shock rate.
Our XCR mp3 design actuates with a very slight
rising rate, perfect for a short travel XC platform like
the XCR. Our XCT mp4 design is geometrically very
linear in the first 40% of suspension travel, then falls
slightly over the balance of wheel travel. With the
naturally progressive suspension characteristics of
an air shock plus some additional tuning of shock
internals the XCT’s ride is supple, with the rear wheel
in constant traction. The mp4 suspension design is
also lighter! Thanks to the asymmetrical chainstays
and the much shorter seatstays. Weight of the 2011
XCT alloy frame is at least 250 grams lighter than
the 2010 version. And the XCT carbon frame is sick:
1950 grams painted!

10mm Shock Hardware.


Our 10mm shock hardware is NOT the standard from
our rear shock suppliers. We have to pay more for it
and our production lead times are usually increased
because we specify it. But the increase in lateral &
torsional stiffness for our frames and the enhanced
rear shock durability and performance is worth every
extra dollar and every extra delivery day.

Asymmetrical Chainstays.
The Dakar XCT’s chainstays are asymmetrical, with
an elevated straight stay on the non-drive side and
a dropped curved stay on the drive side. The drive
side must be dropped & curved to clear the front
derailleur and chain, but running the non-drive
side straight from the dropout to BB pivot reduces
weight while significantly stiffening the rear triangle
laterally. There’s more tire clearance, too.

135 x 12mm Maxle Thru-Axle.


Securing the rear wheel to the frame by threading it
into the frame dropouts is not only safer, it’s stiffer.
Increasing the rear axle diameter from 10mm to
12mm makes it only stiffer still. And stiff is good.
The rear wheel tracks directly in line with the frame,
for more precise handling, so you can go faster with
more confidence.

24
Full Suspension
Dyad XC Ultra Lay-Up.
The Dyad XC Ultra lay-up schedule used on our XCT
3 and 4 frames utilizes two different types of high
modulus carbon fibers, applied in specific sequences
and angles to maximize strength, stiffness and ride
quality in the lightest possible package.

Tapered Head Tube and Fork Steerer.


Riding fast with control requires steering precision,
which starts with the front of the bike. Stiffening this
area results in less wheel deflection, more wheel
control. Moving to a full 1.5” head tube and steerer
achieves this, but adds unnecessary weight and bulk,
and limits stem choices. But a tapered 1 1 /8” to 1 1 /2”
head tube and steerer serves up a significant increase
in rough terrain tracking and stability without much of
a weight penalty compared to standard 1 1 /8” systems
since the steer tube wall thickness can be reduced.
Adding a 15mm QR thru-axle hub/fork interface takes
steering precision on the XCT over the top.

2.6-to-1 Shock Leverage Ratio.


There are multiple benefits of a low wheel-travel-
to-shock-stroke ratio. Longer shock and seal
life because shocks can be pumped to lower air
pressures without performance detriment. Less
rebound damping is required, so more range of
adjustability is available. The lower leverage ratio is
also going to be more plush on bigger hits.

Cartridge Bearing with CNC Pivot Hardware


All XCTs offer sealed cartridge bearings at every
pivot with CNC’d alloy pivot hardware for minimum
maintenance and maximum performance.

Why BB 30?
It’s lighter! By eliminating the BB cups and using
a larger diameter alloy spindle, crankset and BB
weight can be reduced by 12%.

It’s narrower! With the bearings inside the BB shell,


crank width is reduced for better alignment of hips,
knees and ankles.

It’s stiffer! Increasing spindle diameter increases


stiffness and power transfer.

Hardtails

31.6mm Seat & Steering Platform.


A 35mm seat tube with 31.6mm seat post assures
the stiffest possible pedaling & steering platform,
with a sloping rifled top tube for low stand-over.

Disc Specific Rims.


Disc hubs twist when disc brake calipers rub rotors
during stops. This hub twisting increases “pull” load
on the nipples in the spoke bed. The Alex TD25
spoke bed is cleverly reinforced to resist disc brake
torque and prevent spokes & nipples from shearing
at the spoke bed.

FSA AlphaDrive Am Crank.


FSA’s AlphaDrive AM crank offers a splined, forged
hollow chromoly spindle for a stiff and secure
crank/BB interface; heat-treated chromoly 33/22
chainrings for solid shifting; an alloy bash guard for
durability; and chromoly pedal inserts in the alloy
crank arms, all to deliver the pedaling-platform
confidence DJ riders demand.

Super Short Chainstays.


The Komodo’s rear wheel tucks super tight against
the seat tube with short 410mm chainstays. With
our new forged dropouts, you’ve got a stiffer more
responsive rear end.

Komodo Frame.
Stout 7005 tubing, double-gusseted, with
massive 57mm down tube ovalized to

Solid Parts Performance.


Komodo offers robust components chosen to
ensure durable and consistent performance on
every ride. This includes a suspension fork with
32mm stanchions and 120mm of travel, disc
brakes, disc-spoecific rims, a splined BB/crank
interface, alloy platform pedals with pedal spikes,
and a 31.8mm over-sized handlebar and stem.

Geax Gato 2.3”


Gato has an aggressive tread with widely
spaced knobs and a self cleaning pattern. It’s
an aggressive, multi-purpose tire especially
well-suited for wet conditions and heavy
soils. The reinforced central knob line offers
reasonably low rolling resistance. Extra casing
beef placed right below the side knobs increase
rigidity and grip when cornering. Grooved, high
knobs deliver plenty of traction and control on
wet and nasty terrains.

NOTES:
2011 Dakota d29 Series
We’ve taken our years of the carbon fiber manufacturing experience gained producing Dakar XCR dual suspension frames
and Xenith series road racing frames and applied it to the big-wheeled world of 29’ers. And not just in one limited frame
size, but four.

29’er Geo.
Hardtails

Its all in the numbers: a steep 71 - 72 degree


(depending on frame size) headtube angle for fast
responsive steering with no “flip/flop” feel. A 73 - 74
degree seat tube angle to put the rider more directly
over the pedals for an optimal pedaling position.
With a cool , aggressively sloped top tube for the
lowest possible standover on those large diameter
wheels and a stiffer, more responsive frame.

Why BB30?
It’s lighter! By eliminating the BB cups and using a
larger diameter alloy spindle, crank and BB weight
can be reduced by up to 12%. It’s narrower! With
the bearings inside the BB shell, crank width is
reduced, increasing ankle clearance. It’s stiffer!
Increasing spindle diameter increases crankset
stiiffness. It’s more durable! BB30 bearings are
larger than conventional or external BB bearings,
yielding longer bearing life.

2 x10 SRAM Drivetrains.


How can 20 speeds be better than 27 speeds?
Because with SRAM’s 12-36T 10-speed cassettes
and 26/39 chainrings, a full gear range with less
redundancies can be achieved, which results in a
lighter/faster/better bike. Eliminating the third
chainring reduces the stress of cross-chaining on
the chainrings, the cassette cogs and the chain. And
it narrows the distance between your feet, which
improves alignment of hips, knees and feet for a
faster, more comfortable ride

The DiRT on SRAM.


SRAM’s XO & X9 shifting systems set the standard
for off-road performance. Their Direct Route
Technology (Di.R.T.) is light, responsive, precise and
impervious to cable housing damage. Their 1:1 Exact
Actuation ratio ensures precise shifts all the time,
every time, while their Zero Loss Travel design keeps
the shifting pawl constantly engaged for instant
shifting response.

34
Tapered Head Tube and Fork Steerer.

Hardtails
Riding fast with control requires steering precision,
which starts with the front of the bike. Stiffening this
area results in less wheel deflection, more wheel
control. Moving to a full 1.5” head tube and steerer
achieves this, but adds unnecessary weight and bulk,
and limits stem choices. But a tapered 1 1 /8” to 1 1 /2”
head tube and steerer serves up a significant increase
in rough terrain tracking and stability without much of
a weight penalty compared to standard 1 1 /8” systems
since the steer tube wall thickness can be reduced.

Dyad Fiber Lay-Up.


The Dyad XC Ultra lay-up schedule employed on our
D29 Team and Pro frames utilizes two different types
of high modulus carbon fibers, applied in specific
sequences and angles to maximize strength, stiffness
and ride quality in the lightest possible package.

FEA optimized Fiber Lay-Up.


We use powerful, state of the art, composite
manufacturing software to analyze and perfect our
layup schedule. The result is optimized layup for
optimal stiffness, greater durability and lighter weight.

2011 Dragon 29 Series
It’s a fact -- bigger wheels roll easier over stuff. Stuff like rocks, stutter bumps, mud and sand. In other words, they roll easier
-- and faster -- over the trails you ride. And the ride is smoother if the frame is steel. Like on our Dragons. In two versions:
Reynolds 853 2 x 10 Race or Reynolds 520 3 x 9 Sport.
Hardtails

American Classic Wheelset.


American Classic wheels are light, responsive and
lusted after by many, and their MTB29 wheelset
doesn’t disappoint. The rear hub features a
patented 6 pawl, cam-actuated engagement
system specifically designed to handle the constant
re-accelerations of XC racing and trail riding. With
flange spacing designed to optimize dishing. The
front hub, forged out of one solid piece of aluminum
is one of the lightest disc specific front hubs around
without sacrificing stiffness and durability (thanks
to the massive 17mm front axle and stout 17mm
stainless steel bearings). Total wheelset weight:
1650 grams!

Geax 29 x 2.2’s.
These tires roll fast over rock and hardpack, but
don’t clog easily in mud. In fact, they hold their own
in really wet conditions, which for a fast rolling tire is
a nice surprise. You never have to worry about how to
approach the next corner because the blocks in the
tread pattern (what Geax calls their “Rail Design”)
just seems perfectly postioned no matter what angle
you’re at. And the casing is super supple.

Disc Brake Reinforcement Brace.


Dragon features a new chainstay/seatstay disc brace
that supports our thin-walled, non-driveside stays
from loads generated by the disc brakes. The new
brace is lighter and stronger than past models.

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 Dragon Race are lost wax molded.
Besides their great looks, they help to laterally stiffen
the rear triangle. A huge plus on a bike with
450mm long chainstays!

38
Hardtails
Real Steel. Reynolds Steel
Reynolds pioneered the techniques of making butted
tubing around the turn of the century, and their
531 manganese-molybdenum alloy tubing was the
standard of excellence for many decades. The Dragon
Race features a new generation of Reynolds steel:
853 seamless, air-hardened/cold-worked chrome-
moly frame tubes. On the Race, it’s Reynolds 520
double-butted cromo.

853: Air-Hardened Steel.


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 853 steel alloys used on our Dragon Race.
This material actually gets stronger at the weld zones,
allowing Reynolds to draw the tubing thinner for a
lighter, stronger frame.

Jamis Lock-On Grips.


Our Lock-On grips offer a solid feel with lock-on,
no-”throttle-twist”, security. Featuring a firm but
comfortable non-slip, dual-density, Kraton skeleton
with a single 5mm bolt locking system.

185mm Front Rotors.


29’ers generate a heap of rotating mass once they
are up to speed. So it only makes sense to use larger
rotors to help control that larger wheel in the most
efficient manner possible. Sure, 160mm rotors will
stop the bike, but when you’re riding like every second
counts, braking for the shortest time possible while
keeping the bike under control is the goal, and a
larger 185mm rotor up front let’s you do this.

2011 Exile Series
Big wheels aren’t just for big riders anymore. The same things that make big hoops good for them -- improved traction,
more pinch-flat resistance, lower rolling resistance -- make 29’ers an efficient upgrade for lots of other riders too.
The Exiles were so popular in 2010, we’ve expanded the series to include the new 2 x 10 Exile III.
Hardtails

Jamis XC Saddle.
Our Jamis XC saddle features a long, narrow shell
that offers multiple, efficient pedaling positions with
a pressure relief channel for a more comfortable
platform, plus tough scuff-resistant corners and
strong-but-light chromoly rails.

Eyeletted Rims.
Disc brake torque twists the hub during braking,
exerting “pull” load on the spokes and nipples.
We specify eyeletted WTB rims on the Exile II &
III because the eyelets help to strengthen the rim
bed and prevent spoke/nipple shear due to disc
brake torque.

2 x10 SRAM Drivetrain.


How can 20 speeds be better than 27 speeds?
Because with SRAM’s 12-36T 10-speed cassettes
and 26/39 chainrings, a full gear range with less
redundancies can be achieved, which results in a
lighter/faster/better bike. Eliminating the third
chainring reduces the stress of cross-chaining on
the chainrings, the cassette cogs and the chain.
And it narrows the distance between your feet, which
improves alignment of hips, knees and feet for a
faster, more comfortable ride.

Geax AKA 29 x 2.2’s


The Geax is a fast and grippy tire for all types of
terrain, with lower profile knobs in the center for low
rolling resistance and side knobs derived from their
aggressive Gato tire for grip.

NOTES:
2011 Dakota dXC Series
Engineered for competitive cross country hardtail is a special kind of bike, and in a world that’s dominated by full suspension
machines it takes a special kind of rider to appreciate the near-primal joy and refinement hardtails embody. There are no
frills, no gimmicks. Just pure, near-perfect power transfer and trail-riding that’s stripped to its essence.
Hardtails

Dyad XC Elite and XC Plus Fiber Lay-Ups.


The Dyad XC Elite lay-up schedule employed on
our dXC Team model utilizes only high modulus
carbon fibers yielding the lightest, stiffest, highest
performing frames. The Dyad XC plus lay-up
specified for our dXC Pro model uses a blend of high
and mid-modulus carbon fibers to achieve similar
goals, but with an eye on cost.

SRAM XX 2 x 10 Drivetrain.
The revolutionary 2 x 10 drivetrain on the dXC
Team is powered by a 42/28T BB30 crankset
that maximizes power transfer and stiffness while
minimizing weight. The BB30 version we spec comes
in at a scant 694 grams! The chainrings are CNC-
machined from 7075 alloy blanks that are 2mm
thicker than the competition. That larger BCD and
2-piece insert-molded carbon construction deliver
unparalleled stiffness. And Q-factor is a narrow
156mm! You won’t miss that 3rd chainring either
thanks to the new SRAM XX ten-speed cassette with
huge 11-36T capacity.

Spot-On Geometry.
The aggressive frame angles of the dXC series,
combined with a generous top tube length, delivers
an ideal race geometry. Pedaling and climbing are
remarkably efficient. Handling is quick and nimble.

Carbon Fiber Dropouts.


Carbon Fiber drop-outs: The chainstay is 99.5% full
carbon fiber, including the dropouts. An alloy disc
brake mount is integrated into the carbon on the
non-drive side to provide additional strength under
braking loads.

48
Hardtails
Tapered Head Tube and Fork Steerer.
Riding fast with control requires steering precision,
which starts with the front of the bike. Stiffening
this area results in less wheel deflection, more
wheel control. Moving to a full 1.5” head tube and
steerer achieves this, but adds unnecessary weight
and bulk, and limits stem choices. But a tapered
1 1 /8” to 1 1 /2” head tube and steerer serves up a
significant increase in rough terrain tracking and
stability without much of a weight penalty compared
to standard 1 1 /8” systems since the steer tube wall
thickness can be reduced.

FEA Optimized Design.


We use powerful, state of the art, composite
manufacturing software to analyze and perfect
our layup schedule. The result is optimized
layup for optimal stiffness, greater durability
and lighter weight.

Geax TNT Tires.


Geax’s TNT AKA’s offer a very supple 120 tpi
casing with extra sidewall protection and stiffness.
The bead is a three-dimensional Aramid folding
bead, one that hooks perfectly into UST rims. The
casing allows you to run either a tube inside or
no tube at all in conjunction with sealant. Tube
or No Tube = TNT. The beauty of TNT for those
who prefer the NT option is that they save about
100grams over a typical UST tire, and you get the
more supple, better riding Geax casing.

SID XX World Cup.


The XX Motion Control damping system on the
Sid XX offers efficient small-bump performance
and incredible reliability in a highly tunable
package. It features Dual Flow rebound to
accurately control beginning and ending stroke
rebound, with tunable low-speed compression
and the XLoc hydraulic actuated remote to lock-
out and adjust the desired Floodgate.

2011 Dragon
We wrote the book on cross-country steel. 30 years of it. These might look like retro rigs, but there’s nothing outdated or
outmoded about the way they ride. The Dragon frame gives as much as it gets, the harder you push it, the better it feels.
Hardtails

Feel of Steel.
The legendary ride of steel: that’s what these
bikes are all about. There is an allure to steel that
transcends its traditional artisan appeal. And that’s
its ride quality. “Stiff but buttery smooth” is the
phrase most often used to describe that trait. It’s the
benchmark against which all other frame materials
are measured.

Shimano Dyna-Sys.
Adding a 10-speed rear cassette for mountain
bikes ostensibly would eliminate the 3rd chainring,
without sacrificing an adequate gear range. But
Shimano is calling their 30-speed drivetrain a whole
new way of shifting. Having a wider gear range at
the back with more closely spaced gears creates
smoother and more intuitive shifting, more efficient
and powerful pedaling, and allows the rider to stay
in the middle and largest chainrings for a higher
proportion of the time.

Disc Brake Reinforcement Brace.


Dragon features a new chainstay/seatstay disc brace
that supports our thin-walled, non-driveside stays
from loads generated by the disc brakes. The new
brace is lighter and stronger than past models.

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 Dragon are lost wax molded.
Besides their great looks, they help to laterally
stiffen the rear triangle significantly.

54
Hardtails
Reynolds Air-Hardened Steel.
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 853 steel alloy used on
Dragon Pro. This material actually gets stronger
at the weld zones, allowing Reynolds to draw the
tubing thinner for a lighter, stronger frame.

Dragon Manufacturing.
All tubing is cleaned before being cut, jigged and
welded. All tubing cuts are deburred and buffed
before welding. We use heat sinks in the head and
seat tubes to control distortion. And our low angle
welding tracks form precisely arced, low-profile TIG
beads that disperses heat more evenly, requiring
less post-welding frame alignment.

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.

It’s Hammer Time.


Mountain bike wheels take a lot of abuse, so rim
strength is critical for high-end bikes like the
Dragon. Mavic, always on the forefront of rim and
wheel innovation, hammer hardens the rims of
the CrossRide Disc wheelset in the area where the
spokes exert the greatest stress. This strengthens
the rim at it’s weakest point and improves the rim’s
life expectancy and resistance to micro-cracking.

NOTES:
2011 Durango Series
Our Durango hardtails are the best way to hit the backcountry and discover what mountan biking is all about. They’re versa-
tile and well-equipped and the perfect transition between the rider you are now and the rider you want to become.
Hardtails

Jamis Trail Saddle.


Our mountain bike saddle features a pressure relief
channel for soft-tissue relief, a mid-width platform
that comfortably fits a broad range of body shapes
and a tall-tail pedaling platform. With scuff-resistant
corners.

31.6mm Pedaling Platform.


Increasing seat post diameter over 15% from
27.2mm to 31.6mm not only assures a stronger pillar
but the decrease in “platform” flex under pedaling
load while seated is significant.

Disc Specific Rims.


Disc hubs twist during braking. This twisting increases
“pull” load on the nipples in the spoke bed, possibly
leading to a shear. To counter this, we add stainless
steel eyelet inserts to the rims of the Durango 3 and
2 which strengthens the rim by spreadingg the brake
load. On the Durango 1, the Alex TD25 rim is actually
reinforced with additional material in the spoke bed.

Geax Rails Design Tread.


Many, small side knobs are placed on two parallel
arrays:
--- the ones closer to the tread center help cornering
on low-speed, tight-radius bends;
--- the ones closer to the sidewall are very effective
on high-speed, larger-radius bends.
The result is a tire that makes you feel like you’re
“on rails” when cornering.

58
Hardtails
Frame Design for 2011.
The Durango platform features a radiused, sloping
top tube that optimizes stand-over clearance while
adding great looks at the same time. The over-sized
downtube is S-shaped for fork crown clearance and
extra lateral stiffness at the BB.

Solid Performance.
Every Durango offers robust components chosen to
ensure durable and consistent performance on every
ride. This includes 100mm travel forks with 30mm
stanchions and lock-out (!), disc brakes, disc-specific
rims and 31.8mm over-sized bars and stems.

Hayes Hydraulics.
Hayes Stroker Ryde Comp brakes offer a radial
master cylinder design. The radial design moves
the lever pivot point inward toward the centerline
of the bike which produces less flexing of the
master cylinder housing during braking. The
reduction in flex yields more power with better
feel and modulation.

Fully Integrated Drivetrains.


The best shifting bikes are the ones spec’ed with
fully integrated drivetrains. Which is what you will
find on every Durango model: from the shifters,
to the derailleurs front and rear, to the cranksets.
Whether it’s the 30-speed SRAM drivetrain on the
Durango 3 or the 27-speed Shimano drivetrains on
the Durango 1 & 2.

2011 Trail X Series
Building great entry-level bikes that ride much like (and look a lot like) our hi-end bikes is what these bikes are all about.
While we’re genuine bike geeks, and new bike technology and parts do get us excited in ways every bike geek can under-
stand, no way this compares to the thrill of turning new riders on to cycling. And no bikes showcase our commitment to do
just that better than our Trail X bikes.
Hardtails

Frame Materials.
Lightweight-but-strong 6061 series aluminum
tubing, featuring over-sized, ovalized & tapered
tubing for increased frame strength.

Stopping Power.
The Tektro disc brakes offered on the Trail X2 and X3
feature a floating pad design that ensures the pads
automatically and consistently adjust to the rotor
angle. The pads are held in place magnetically, re-
quire no tools to remove or replace and can be easily
checked for wear. if the pads have worn to the point
that the caliper piston pin-postioning hole is visible
from the pad side, the pads need to be replaced.

Full Shimano Shifting System.


Fully integrated shifting systems offer the most
precise and reliable performance. That’s why our
Trail X3, X2 and X1 models all offer Shimano shifters,
Shimano front and rear derailleurs and Shimano
cassettes or freewheels.

Replaceable Derailleur Hanger.


Because it’s much easier and much less expensive
to replace a derailleur hanger than it is to repair or
replace a frame, every aluminum Trail X frame offers
a replaceable derailleur hanger designed to yield in
a crash before the frame does. Part # 12-1856.

Hardtails
Frame Design & Sizing.
The sloping Enduro III frame design of the Trail
X-Series is offered in up to 8 sizes (depending on
model), assuring the best possible customer fit for
optimal handling and enhanced comfort Our small-
est 12” & 13” frames are especially suitable for junior
riders. These frame sizes can comfortably & safely fit
taller kids as young as 9 or 10.

Top Tube Cable Routing.


Running the cables up high on the top tube keeps
cables and housing out of the muck for more precise
and reliable shifting performance.

Dual Water Bottle Mounts.


Every Trail X model offers two water bottle mounts
located inside the main frame. This provides excel-
lent hydration capacity in an easily accessible posi-
tion. Bottles stay cleaner in this position too.
.

Alex TD25 Disc-Specific Rims.


Disc hubs twist during braking. This twisting
increases “pull” load on the nipples in the spoke
bed. The Alex TD25 spoke bed is cleverly reinforced
to resist disc brake torque and prevent spokes &
nipples from shearing at the spoke bed.

2011 Xenith Competition Series
The Pro-circuit, race-tested Xenith platform lets you scorch corners in criteriums or make up time on twisty descents with a
high-modulus carbon fiber monocoque frame that’s so ride-tune and gram-lean it’s truly a magic carpet to the podium. Just
ask the riders of Jamis-Sutter Home and Colavita-Baci.

Omniad and Dyad Fiber Lay-Ups.


The Omniad lay-up schedule employed on our SL
model utilizes only ultra-high modulus carbon fibers
yielding the lightest, stiffest, highest performing
frames. The Dyad Elite lay-up found on our Team
and Elite models blends two different types of
high modulus carbon fibers to maximize strength,
stiffness and ride quality in the lightest possible
package. The Dyad Ultra lay-up featured on our Pro
and Race models blends a high and mid-modulus
carbon fiber to achieve similar goals, but with an
eye on cost. And the Dyad Plus lay-up utilized on
our Xenith Comp also mixes high and mid-modulus
carbon fibers, but in different proportions to provide
our most affordable Xenith.
Road

1K high Modulus Outer Weave.


The cosmetic final layer of most carbon frames
are usually made of lower modulus 3K, 6K or 12K
carbon fiber. Not so with the Xenith SL. We use an
ultra-high modulus fiber woven in a beautifully tight
1K pattern which further contributes to the strength
of the frame, allowing us to reduce frame weight
even more.

Why BB30?
It’s lighter! By eliminating the BB cups and using a
larger diameter alloy spindle, crank and BB weight
can be reduced by up to 12%. It’s narrower! With the
bearings inside the BB shell, crank width is reduced,
increasing ankle clearance. It’s stiffer! Increasing
spindle diameter increases crankset stiiffness.
It’s more durable! BB30 bearings are larger than
conventional or external BB bearings, yielding longer
bearing life.

Asymmetrical Chainstays.
Chainstay design is critical for the efficient transfer
of power from pedal to wheel. But simply beefing
up the entire area to prevent frame flex under
pedaling torque can yield unnecessary weight
gain and stiffness. The Xenith chainstay design
maximizes stiffness while minimizing weight
through asymmetrical design - the driveside
chainstay is 10% larger and 30% stiffer to offset
drivetrain induced flex.

70
Near Net Molding.
A revolutionary manufacturing process that yields
near perfect compaction and eliminates fiber wash
and wrinkles during the molding process.

FEA optimized Fiber Lay-Up.


We use powerful, state of the art, composite
manufacturing software to analyze and perfect
our layup schedule. The result is optimized
layup for optimal stiffness, greater durability
and lighter weight.

Impact Resistant Fiber Binder.


Ultra-high modulus carbon fiber is perfectly
suited for the high strength, high stiffness, low

Road
weight demands of professional racing. Problem
is, it’s not extraordinarily impact resistant. That’s
why we specify a resin binder that improves
impact resistance on our ultra-high modulus SL
frames by up to 40%.

Tri-Oval Tubing Profiles.


The top and down tubes of the Xenith frame are tri-
ovalized for optimal stiffness in the lightest possible
package. This tubing design orients the axis of
each of the ovals to increase lateral stiffness while
optimizing vertical compliance.

Tapered Head Tube and Steerer.


By enlarging the bottom bearing of the head tube
from 1 1 /8” to 1 1 /2”, not only are head tube
stiffness and steering precision increased, but we
have sufficient room in the crown to produce a truly
hollow fork from the dropout, up through the crown
and steerer tube. It’s significantly stronger and
stiffer for precise steering while still providing the
perfect amount of vertical compliance for comfort.

One-Piece Forged Dropouts.


The Xenith dropouts are a solid, 1-piece forged
design, as opposed to the standard 2- piece/
bolt together type, reducing flex while enhancing
structural integrity and frame longevity.

2011 Xenith T-Series
The ”Race of Truth” it’s called: just you, the wind and the clock. Whether it’s a Triathlon or a TT, we have the tool to stop the
clock sooner than the competition. Wind tunnel developed and tested against all the major competition, our Xenith T series
posted some of the lowest drag figures at the San Diego wind tunnel, so low in fact, they thought there was something
amiss with their equipment. Get one and you’ll see, you, too, can turn back the clock.

Contoured Seat Tube.


The contoured seat tube not only makes the T-Series
more aero by tucking the rear wheel behind the seat
tube, it improves power transfer by minimizing rear
triangle flex.

78 Degree Seat Tube Angle.


Road

Adopting an aero position with your torso requires


rotation of the body and hips forward, requiring
a steeper seat tube angle than a conventional
road frame. 78 degrees is the perfect balance for
optimum balance.

Dropout Axle Adjustors.


We’ve included these to fine-tune wheel position and
then easily maintain it when swapping wheels from
training hoops to race-day jewels.

Chainstay Mounted Rear Brake.


We look at every component on the bike and the
opportunity to reduce drag. Several grams of drag
can be reduced by locating the rear brake under the
chainstay. We were one of the pioneers in this area
and others have followed.

82
Internally Routed Cables.
All Xenith T-series cables are routed internally to
minimize drag. We’ve made sure they are also easily
replaceable and serviceable, too.

Road
Windshield Fork.
Our Windshield fork shrouds the front brake inside
the front fork reducing drag by as much as 10%. This
equates to a 7 watt power advantage, which over
the course of a one hour time trial at a functional
threshold of 300 watts on a flat road with no wind is
the equivalent of 32 seconds saved.

Wind Tunnel Testing.


We’re a frequent visitor to the San Diego Low Speed
Wind Tunnel test facility. Whether testing out new ideas,
fact finding on potential new shapes and designs or
verifying that production models test as slippery as our
prototypes.

Why BB30?.
It’s lighter! By eliminating the BB cups and using a
larger diameter alloy spindle, crank and BB weight
can be reduced by up to 12%. It’s narrower! With the
bearings inside the BB shell, crank width is reduced,
increasing ankle clearance. It’s stiffer! Increasing spindle
diameter increases crankset stiffness. It’s more durable!
BB30 bearings are larger than conventional or external
BB bearings, yielding longer bearing life.

2011 Sonik
Nothing is purer than racing on a velodrome -- one gear, no coasting, smooth banked surface -- it’s the simplest, most
elegant expression of cycling. Our Sonik is supremely stiff and absolutely aero with the perfect geometry to make this the
must-have velodrome bike.

Hydro-formed Seat Tube.


The contoured seat tube not only makes the bike
more aero by tucking the rear wheel behind the seat
tube, but improves power transfer by minimizing
rear triangle flex. Having the rear wheel under the
rider also minimizes rear wheel skips during all out
sprints.
Road

Aero-triangluated Down Tube.


We not only formed the down tube to cut through
the wind, but triangulated it at the bottom bracket
for ultimate stiffness.

FSA Carbon Track Crank.


FSA Carbon Track crank offers an ISIS-splined BB
spindle/crank interface for superior sprint stiffness
and a 144mm bolt circle so chainring options for
race-day gear changes are maximized.

Stainless Steel Dropout Inserts.


Track race strategy includes making gear ratio
changes for nearly every race. To prevent dropout
damage from the constant rear wheel removal and
re-tightening these gear changes require, we surface
our lightweight alloy dropouts with replaceable
stainless steel inserts.

88
Deda Controls.
Deda’s Pista Track handlebar is the benchmark
track bar. Straight-gauge 6061 T6 alloy gives it the
necessary stiffness for any type of track racing, and
that deep 173mm track drop is perfect for digging
deep at the finish line. For their 100 gram Zero stem,
Deda uses a special lubricant during the 2014 alloy
forging process that allows them to make the stem
walls ultra-thin.

Carbon Track Fork.


With reduced tire clearance and fork rake, this
fork perfectly complements the Sonik’s aggressive

Road
geometry and aerodynamic profile. The short 30mm
offset is well suited for the Sonik’s steep head angle
as well as the steep banks of the velodrome. Carbon
blades and steerer for lightweight performance.

American Classic 420 Track Wheels.


The 420 wheelset features the lightest deep-section
aluminum clinchers in the world. Combining these
rims with AC’s new track hubs and bladed spokes
make the Track 420’s the perfect wheel choice for
track racing.

Vittoria Diamante Pro Pista Tires.


The Pro Pista has less tread and fewer belts than
standard Diamantes, which reduces its weight to a
scant 150 grams,. Vittoria’s famous 220 tpi thread
count makes this a very tough yet supple nylon
casing, with Twin Tread technology offering a hard
wearing center for fast rolling and soft sides for
safe cornering.

handling skills. With our rich history of Cyclocross, we know and understand what it takes to build world class racing ma-
chines. We mix this with some real world usability to make our bikes world cup winners and the most versatile road bike you
can own.

It’s All in the Details.


Adding a cable stop for the rear cantilever brake is
often a design challenge. On smaller frames there is
not enough room for a welded-on stop and adding
a stop that bolts on to the seat clamp is usually a
messy affair. Check out our solution: we’ve integrat-
ed the seat clamp and the cable stop (with adjustor!)
into one light, clean CNC’d alloy unit.

Mud-Specific Cable Routing.


Cyclocross racing is usually muddy, which wreaks
havoc with front and rear shifting. We’ve moved both
Road

derailleur cables to the top tube to keep them clear


of the mud, insuring they work in the worst of condi-
tions. Because the front derailleur must be cable-
pulled from underneath, we’ve added a cable roller
to the bottom of the seat tube to re-direct the front
derailleur cable properly.

SRAM Does Cross Right.


SRAM’s 1:1 cable-pull ratio is perfectly suited for the
mud and crude of cyclocross. Because SRAM’s drive-
train design out of the box is less friction sensitive
than other shifting systems, it makes perfect sense
to spec a Rival drivetrain on a bike that is going to
suffer cable and housing contamination on race day.

Versatile Design.
We designed every Nova to be raced, but we don’t
see these bikes as being limited to the race course.
These are tremendously versatile machines, just as
competent touring or commuting as they are racing,
so we’ve thoughtfully included dropout eyelets for
easy installation of fenders or a rear carrier.

Light and Strong.
Supernova features super-lite and strong Kinesium
tubing, a space age alloy that is 30% stronger than
conventional 6061 or 7005. Nova Pro and Nova
Race offer lightweight double-butted 7005 alumi-
num. Supernova and Nova Pro also feature carbon
seat stays to increase lateral stiffness and optimize
shock damping.

Hydro-formed Portage Flat.


National Champion Jesse Anthony helped us to per-
fectly position and angle the portage flat under the
top tube. His input resulted in a fully hydro-formed
top tube that makes portaging as comfortable as
portaging could possibly get.

Road
Jamis ‘Cross Fork.
By enlarging the bottom bearing of the head
tube from 1 1/8” to 1 1 /2”, not only are head tube
stiffness and steering precision increased, but we
have sufficient room in the crown to produce a truly
hollow fork from the dropout, up through the crown
and steer tube, which yields exceptional compaction
quality for increased strength and reduced weight.
We’ve smartly integrated a CNC’ed alloy cable
hanger into the fork crown, reducing exposed front
brake cable length from hanger to straddle cable,
effectively eliminating the brake “shudder” often
common on cantilever-equipped carbon forks.

NOTES:

2011 Xenith Endura Series
Borrowing heavily from our award winning Xenith Competition design, the Endura strikes a balance between performance,
comfort and compliance. Every Endura model features all the performance and design attributes of our racing bikes with
slightly taller head tubes, longer wheelbases and relaxed frame angles. Fast and long rides can now be enjoyed, not just
endured. Introducing the new Endura Series from Jamis: where “plush” meets “high performance”.

Long Reach Brake Calipers.


Brake calipers typically specified on road bikes have
a reach range of 39 - 49mm. This is fine if riders are
willing to accept limiting their tire size choices to
23 or 25c widths. But we think the Endura rider will
appreciate having long reach calipers (47 - 57mm
range) spec’ed instead, allowing for the installation
of tire widths up to 32c.
Road

Seat Post Clamping.


Securely clamping the seat post with traditional
single bolt seat clamps and a single slot cut in the
back of the seat tube can put a lot of stress on a
carbon frame, potentially resulting in frame failure.
That’s why we cut slots both fore and aft in the top of
the seat tube, and have designed our own opposing
2-bolt clamp. Clamping force is now evenly spread
around the entire seat mast.

One-Piece Forged Dropouts.


The Endura dropouts are a solid, 1-piece forged
design, as opposed to the standard 2- piece/
bolt together type, reducing flex while enhancing
structural integrity and frame longevity.

Asymmetrical Chainstays.
Chainstay design is critical for the efficient transfer
of power from pedal to wheel. But simply beefing
up the entire area to prevent frame flex under
pedaling torque can yield unnecessary weight
gain and stiffness. The Endura chainstay design
maximizes stiffness while minimizing weight
through asymmetrical design - the driveside
chainstay is 10% larger and 30% stiffer to offset
drivetrain induced flex.

98
Tri-Oval Tubing Profiles.
The top and down tubes of the Endura frame are
tri-ovalized for optimal stiffness in the lightest pos-
sible package. This tubing design orients the axis of
each of the ovals to increase lateral stiffness while
optimizing vertical compliance.

SST for the Right Ride.


Using our 54 and 56cm frames as the SST (size-
specific-tubing) “norm”, we construct our 44, 48 and
51cm frames with 10% smaller outer diameter top
and down tubes, while using 10% larger top & down
tubes for the 58 and 61cm frames. The result is a

Road
more consistent ride quality across all frame sizes.

Tapered Head Tube and Steerer.


By enlarging the bottom bearing of the head tube
from 1 1 /8” to 1 1 /2”, not only are head tube
stiffness and steering precision increased, but we
have sufficient room in the crown to produce a truly
hollow fork from the dropout, up through the crown
and steerer tube. It’s significantly stronger and
stiffer for precise steering while still providing the
perfect amount of vertical compliance for comfort.

Why BB30?.
It’s lighter! By eliminating the BB cups and using a
larger diameter alloy spindle, crank and BB weight
can be reduced by up to 12%. It’s narrower! With the
bearings inside the BB shell, crank width is reduced,
increasing ankle clearance. It’s stiffer! Increasing
spindle diameter increases crankset stiffness.
It’s more durable! BB30 bearings are larger than
conventional or external BB bearings, yielding longer
bearing life.

2011 Ventura Series
Our Ventura bikes borrow heavily from the race-proven geometry of our Xeniths to help keep you in front on the local
Saturday ride. But we’ve softened the edges of that geo just a bit for a more comfortable and confident ride so you can head
out again on Sunday, still fresh and ready to hammer your buddies again

A Winning Bike for Everyone.


Our Ventura Series bikes have won Bicycling’s
coveted Editor’s Choice award numerous times.
Which is why we offer the Race, Comp and Sport
in both male and female specific packages.

Ritchey Components.
We’ve been specifying Ritchey parts on our bikes
since 1986. Not just because Tom Ritchey’s designs
Road

are innovative and light, but because we know


we can count on them to hold up. Ritchey testing
standards are tough. Parts must pass a fatigue cycle
testing standard that is at least 2x the European
CEN standard. The same stringent standards ap-
ply to impact testing as well. Once products have
cleared machine testing, prototype samples endure
rigorous use by both amateur and professional riders
alike around the world. By the time we put these
parts on our bikes, they have passed a global testing
and approval process second to none.

Carbon Fiber Monostay.


Adding a carbon fiber monostay to the Race
enhances ride quality by damping road vibrations
and optimizes lateral and torsional stiffness for out-
of-the-saddle sprinting.

Compact Crankset.
FSA’s compact crankset concept is
revolutionary: a 34T inner chainring offers
a 15% lower gear ratio than traditional 39T
double ringed road cranks, but the 50T outer
loses only 6% off the top end compared to a
53T traditional outer. You get the hill climbing
capability of a triple, yet less weight than a
standard double.

106
Versatile Performance Geometry.
For a greater range of handlebar and rider positions, we’ve
fitted the Ventura series frames with taller head tubes.
Coupled with a slightly longer wheelbase and relaxed head
tube angle, this results in confident, steering/handling
and a more comfortable position for longer rides whether
competitive or recreational.

Road
SST for the Right Ride.
Using our 54 and 56cm frames as the SST (size-
specific-tubing) “norm”, we construct our 44, 48 and
51cm frames with 10% smaller outer diameter top
and down tubes, while using 10% larger top & down
tubes for the 58 and 61cm frames. The result is a
more consistent ride quality across all frame sizes.

Full Carbon Monocoque Forks.


Manufactured by the same team that produces
our Xenith SL and T2 frames, the carbon forks on
our Ventura Race and Comp are formed as true
monocoque forks, in one continuous unit (steerer/
crown/blades) for optimal strength and performance.
Our competitors often use heavier 3-piece bonded
carbon/alloy forks in this price range.

2011 Steel Performance Series
The legendary ride of steel: that’s what these bikes are all about. There is an allure to steel that transcends its traditional
artisan appeal. And that’s its ride quality. “Stiff but buttery smooth” is the phrase most often used to express that quality. It’s
the benchmark against which all other frame materials are measured.

Steel Specific Geometry.


For a greater range of handlebar and rider positions,
we’ve fitted the Quest and Satellite series frames
with taller head tubes. Coupled with a slightly
longer wheelbase and relaxed head tube angle than
on the Eclipse, the result is more confident steering
& handling and a more comfortable position for
longer rides whether competitive or recreational.
Road

American Classic 420 Wheels.


The American Classic 420 wheelset featured on the
Eclipse are the best do-it-all wheels on the market:
strong enough for racing or training. Responsive
and smooth with a lightweight, 34mm deep
aerodynamic profile, the 420 offers the lightest
deep section aluminum clincher rim in the world.

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 Eclipse and Quest are lost wax
molded, as are the classically shaped seat collars
of all our steel road bikes.

114
Air-Hardened Steel.
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
853 and 631 steel alloys used on our Eclipse and Quest
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.

Road
Reinforcing rings are brazed on the head tube
to prevent the headset and fork movement from
deforming the thin walled chrome-moly head tube.

SST Means “Custom”.


Using our 54 and 56cm frames as the SST (size-
specific-tubing) “norm”, we construct our 48 and
51cm frames with 10% smaller outer diameter top
and down tubes, while using 10% larger top & down
tubes for the 58 and 61cm frames. The result is a
more consistent ride quality across all frame sizes.

Full Carbon Monocoque Forks.


Manufactured by the same team that produces
our Xenith SL and T2 frames, the carbon forks
on our Eclipse, Quest and Satellite models
are formed as true monocoque forks, in one
continuous unit (steerer/crown/blades) for
optimal strength and performance.

2011 Drop Bar Touring & Commuting
If travelling the open road for the pleasure of the journey rather than the need to race, these are the perfect bikes to carry
you and your load. Built with sweet riding Reynolds chromoly steel with long stable geometry and heel/pannier clearance,
these bikes make a long tour or a commute to work something to look forward to.

Tires.
Vittoria Randonneur tires are unbeatable in weight
and performance. Featuring Aquaflow tread pattern
for secure riding in conditions wet or dry and Double
Shielding puncture protection for long tube and tire
life. We’ve also specified sidewall reflective stripes
for optimal visibility.
Road

Stopping Power.
A powerful braking system is a must for fully loaded
touring. The Aurora Elite and Bosanova deliver with
Avid disc brakes, which work powerfully rain or shine.
The Aurora offers reliable Tektro cantilevers and
an additional set of brake levers on the flats of the
handlebars.

Stay High and Dry.


Svelte Blade Runner lightweight aluminum fenders
are featured on both the Aurora Elite & Aurora.

Perfect Touring Geo.


The Auroras offer a generous wheelbase for stable
riding under load and longer chainstays for plenty of
heel /pannier clearance.

124
NVO for Comfort and Fit.
NVO Components clever stem system allow you to
quickly and easily adjust your stem height. Feeling a
little tight in the back after the first few days of your
long-disctance tour? Pull that stem height up for
some relief. Then drop it back down when that back
loosens up.

Real Reynolds Steel.


Reynolds pioneered the techniques of making
butted tubing around the turn of the century, and
their 531 manganese-molybdenum alloy tubing was
the standard of excellence for many decades. The
Elite features a new generation of Reynolds steel:
631 seamless, air-hardened/cold-worked chrome-
moly frame tubes. On the Aurora and Bosanova, it’s
Reynolds 520 double-butted cromo.

Road
SST Means “Custom”.
Our SST (size-specific tubing) engineering protocol
employs smaller-diameter frame sections for smaller
frames and larger ones for bigger frames, for more
consistent ride quality across all frame sizes.

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. Like
what you’ll find on the fork crowns of both Auroras
and the dropouts on the Elite.

Load ‘er Up.


Full complement of braze-on’s: Fenders? Check,
Rear Carrier? Check, Lowriders? Yup.... the Aurora

2011 Sputnik & Beatnik - Fixies
This is stripped-down, go fast gear for the urban jungle. Steel frames to soak up anything the city has to throw at you.
Brakes and flip-flop hub just in case. Everything you need to survive on pedals on the street. Nothing more. Nothing less.

Secure Stops.
Because both Sputnik and Beatnik offer flip-flop
hubs with fixed or freewheel gearing, we include
front and rear brakes in our specification. The
calipers are a “long-reach” type allowing for greater
tire width choices and fender installation. Classic
stainless steel clips secure the brake housing to the
frame.
Road

Fast, Durable Rubber.


A stronger casing combined with bead wire made
from 4 twisted steel wires (for better flexibility)
make Vittoria’s tires ideal for training and urban
riding. They feature Dot C.O.M. Vector tread design,
engineered for the lowest possible rolling resistance
near the center of the tire with maximum grip when
leaning.

FSA F. Gimondi Track Crankset.


For 2011, FSA is introducing a retro square-taper
track crank with 1973 world road champion Felice
Gimondi’s signature. Gimondi also won the Tour, the
Vuelta, the Giro (three times) and Paris-Roubaix, all
on similarly styled Campagnolo double cranks. The
F. Gimondi is perfectly styled for the Sputnik.

Ride Fixed or Free.


Whether you prefer to ride fixed or free, we’ve got
you covered with a Flip-Flop rear hub and both fixed
and freewheel cogs already installed.

130
Real Steel.
Whether it’s the Reynolds 520 double-butted
chromoly steel used on Sputnik or the hi-tensile
steel tubing used on Beatnik, there is simply no
better material better suited for the rigors of urban
riding than steel. Unlike aluminum, steel naturally
damps or absorbs the shocks and vibrations of
city streets. Aluminum simply transmits it, like a
tuning fork, which is why aluminum frames are often
criticized for their “harsh” riding qualities. Besides,
on a fixie, where vintage reigns, skinny steel frame

Road
tubes are just right.

SST Means “Custom”.


Our SST (size-specific tubing) engineering protocol
employs smaller-diameter frame sections for smaller
frames and larger ones for bigger frames, for more
consistent ride quality across all frame sizes.

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. Like
what you’ll find on the fork crown of the Sputnik.

2011 Commuter Series - Commuting
People are discovering that commuting by bike is efficient, green and an excellent solution to some of the overcrowding and
traffic issues the urban areas are facing. Our Commuters are designed to minimize maintenance, maximize comfort and
efficiency. Aluminum frames, fenders, internally geared hubs, dynamo driven lights, rear carriers and efficient, comfortable
saddles. Get green and rediscover the pleasure and efficiency of cycling.

Jamis Metro Saddle.


Our Jamis Metro Sport saddle (with matching grips)
offers just the right combination of width, shape and
padding for riding comfortably and efficiently.

Ready to Load.
We’ve re-designed the carrier for our Commuter 4 to
be lighter, narrower, more minimalistic, and painted
it to match the frame color. An adjustable, elastic
strap is included to safely secure the attaché.

Stay High and Dry.


Svelte Blade Runner aluminum fenders are
featured on the Commuter 3 and 4. Lightweight
polycarbonate fenders grace the Commuter 2 & 1.

Single Chainring Drivetrains


Nothing complicates a drivetrain faster than adding
Street

a second or third chainring, a front derailleur and


another shifter. The possibility of a missed shift or a
dropped chain are increased and nothing is less fun
in traffic on the way to work than this. (It’s not so fun
in the Tour de France either. Just ask Andy Schlek).
Which is why we spec a single 42 or 44 tooth
chainring in the front and 7 or 8-speeds in the back
on our Commuters. For commutes to school or the
office, it’s all the gearing you need.

Internal Gearing.
Internal gear hubs, like the Nexus hubs offered on
Commuter 3 and 4, have many advantages over
externally geared derailleur systems. For one,
shifting is smoother than on external systems.
They are also more reliable and require much less
maintenance because the mechanism is not exposed
to dirt or weather. Instead, the gears are sealed
within the hub and bathed in lubricant. And, unlike
derailleur systems, they can be shifted even when
the bicycle is stopped, a valuable feature for the
commuter who rides in stop-and-go traffic.

136
Think NVO for Fit.
NVO Components clever stem system allow you to
easily adjust your stem height. Pull it up on Monday
morning for see-in-traffic commutes, then lower it
for fitness rides on the weekend.

Stylish Steering.
Every Commuter offers a smartly designed ARC alloy
handlebar that sweeps back stylishly for a perfectly
comfortable heads-up riding position.

For Riding at Night.


Shimano’s Dyno hubs can power most 6 volt lights,

Street
require no batteries, are weather protected and have
remarkably low drag, far less than with a tire side-
wall generator when the light is turned on.
KMC’s cool iLight remains lit when stopped at traffic
lights and offers an auto-on feature that operates
only at night.

Smart Tires.
Don’t let the name fool you: Vittoria’s Adventure
Touring tires are perfect for daily street use. The
casing is made with a microcarbon compound that’s
highly resistant to cuts and wear. Under the tread is
a thick rubber shield to help prevent puncture flats.
A sidewall reflective strip increases visibility at night.

and fenders.

Stopping Power.
Going elbow-to-door-handle in traffic with cars
requires a reliable brake system. The Coda Elite
delivers with Avid BB-7 disc brakes, which work
powerfully rain or shine. Coda Sport and Coda
offer linear pull brakes which are plenty powerful.
To make sure you’re in complete control even
when grabbing a lot of lever for a surprise stop, we
include power modulators on the front brake. This
modulator absorbs excess lever pressure, assuring
controlled braking performance.
Street

Geared to Go Anywhere
The drivetrains on all our Codas feature long cage
ATB rear derailleurs, full-size triple chainring
cranksets (48/36/26 or 48/38/28) and big 11-32
cassette blocks. This gives you the dual advantage
of having high road bike gearing for controlled
pedaling at speed on descents and low mountain
bike gearing for easier pedaling uphill. It’s a rider-
friendly combination that’s made the Coda series
one of our best selling bikes.

Rolling Fast.
Vittoria Zaffiro 28c tires are just the right size for
zipping through traffic: narrow enough to roll fast,
wide enough to provide a secure contact patch. And
there’s plenty of frame clearance for even wider tires.

Think NVO for Fit.
NVO Components clever stem system allow you to
easily adjust your stem height. Pull it up on Monday
morning for see-in-traffic commutes, then lower it
for fitness rides on the weekend.

Buttery Smooth Ride of Steel.


We’re famous for our steel bikes and the Codas have
a lot to do with that. No frame material makes more
sense on beat-up city streets than steel. Why? Hit a
baseball with a wooden bat, then with an aluminum
bat and you’ll know why. You want your frame
material to soak up those streets, not beat you with

them. And we use only the best: Reynolds cold-
worked, double-butted chrome-moly steel.

Wheels Built for the Street.


Low spoke count wheels, with radial lacing or 2-cross
lacing, may look all sexy and smart, but wheels built in this
manner require highly tensioned spokes in order to support
the rim and rider. This over-tensioning results in a harsher
riding wheel, which is the antithesis of the Coda raison
d’etre. Every Coda wheel is built with sturdy 20+mm wide
double-wall rims that allow us to specify wider tires with a
larger contact patch for a smoother, more stable ride, and
32 stainless steel spokes laced in a 3-cross pattern that
assures rugged durability.
