Road Bikes

We used to call these bikes with the skinny wheels and down-turned handlebars ten speeds, or sometimes racing bikes. Today we simply refer to them as "road bikes". Road bikes are swift, elegant machines that can take you across town or across the country. They're pretty much just for pavement use, but ideal for long rides as they are very efficient and aerodynamic. A road bike is a good choice for touring, commuting, racing, or for the pure joy of performance. There's nothing like a road bike. Here's what we carry.

(For starters, you may want to read How to Choose a Road Bike. It's a good primer, and tells you what you need to know without all the jargon. You may also want to check out these FAQs.)

Jamis Quest Sport

$750

We give you the Quest Sport. We're very excited to offer a steel bike at an entry-level price point. The majority of bikes you see these days are made of aluminum, so it's nice to have an alternative. The steel frame lends the Quest a very smooth, very stable ride, and the Shimano Claris components make for quick, accurate shifts. This is a great starter road bike. It's perfect for your first triathlon or for simply adding cycling to your exercise program. Also available in Victory Red.

Jamis Quest Sport Femme

$750

Not to leave out the ladies, we also give you the Quest Sport Femme. We're very excited to offer an entry level steel bike in a women's model too. Like the men's model above, the steel frame and chromoly fork give it a smooth, stable ride, and the Shimano Claris components work great. Of course the women's seat, narrower bars, and adjusted "geometry" make it very comfortable for women. Also available in Victory Red. (Why a Women's Bike?)

Jamis Satellite Sport Femme

Jamis Ventura Sport

$750

We offer the Jamis Ventura Sport as our entry level road bike for 2016. The aluminum frame gives it a nice, light, nimble ride. The Shimano Claris transmission works great, making for sure, positive shifting. Plus it's green. Very exciting. This bike is definitely worth a test ride. Also available in gloss black.

Raleigh Grand Sport

$850

We've just added the Raleigh Grand Sport to our 2015 road bike lineup. This is one of our favorite bikes this year. The looks caught our eye first, but the ride is what really got us. Very smooth! This is a great all-around bicycle. The steel frame, the geometry, the wider tires, and Shimano Claris components make it great for commuting, touring, day rides, and even dirt roads.

Jamis Ventura Comp

On Sale for $900

(Reg. $975)

Think performance here. The carbon fork, Shimano Sora components, and Mavic/Formula wheels give the Ventura Comp a fast, nimble feel. We were pretty much blown away with how well it rode for the price. Come give it a test ride. See if you agree.

Jamis Ventura Comp Femme

$975 (Now $900)

Not only is this bicycle beautiful, it's fast. Of course the womens' specific "geometry" makes it very comfortable too, but the carbon fork, Shimano Sora components, and Mavic/Formula wheels make it fast. This a fun bike to ride. Come try it. (Why a Women's Bike?)

Jamis Ventura Comp

Raleigh Merit 3

$1400

The Merit 3 is our finest road bike. The aluminum frame makes it light, nimble, and fast. The carbon fork gives it a buttery smooth ride. The slightly more upright riding position makes it comfortable. The disc brakes make for good all-weather braking, and the Shimano 105 11spd transmission shifts superbely. This is a lot of bike for the money. Come ride it. It will speak for itself.
