So you need a bike to ride around town, but you’d also like something capable of a little adventure? Sounds like you might need something like the new Jamis Sequel – a flat bar adventure bike perfectly suited for the mean streets, or the endless gravel roads just outside of town.
Starting with a Reynolds 520 frame with double butted chomoly main tubes, the Sequel uses Jamis’ Size Specific Design Geometry. Their SSD geo utilizes two different fork offsets and three BB drops depending on the size to offer the ideal ride, no matter what size.
Rolling on 650b x 47mm WTB tires, the frame and chromoly steel fork offer tons of mounting options for bags, bottles, fenders, and more. Fitted with hydraulic disc brakes and a simple 1×10 drivetrain, the Sequel is meant to be versatile, but also low maintenance.
Additional frame details include front and rear 12mm thru axles, a threaded bottom bracket, and post mount disc brakes front and rear.
Better yet, it’s priced at just $999 and is available in Charcoal or Desert Storm colors. Sizing is available from 15″ up to 23″ frames to fit a pretty wide range of riders.
Even better than paying $999 though, is getting it for free. Which is possible right now thanks to the giveaway Jamis is sponsoring along with Blackburn and Bern helmets.
