Road Bikes

Road Bikes. There's nothing like them. They can take you down the street or across the country. They're very fast and very efficient. People buying them are often looking for a bike to work out on, a bike for longer rides, or maybe they want to add cycling to their exercise mix. The narrow wheels gives them a light, nimble ride. The curved, drop-down handlebars provide multiple hand positions, which allows you to change your grip on longer rides. The leaned-over posture makes it easier to get power to the pedals and easier to breath when you get winded. Although road bikes have historically been geared mostly for pavement and performance, these days manufacturers are also offering more all-purpose machines for riding dirt roads, city biking, and long distance touring. If any of this sounds like you, come in test and ride some of these bikes. You'll be amazed. 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 Ventura Sport

$700

(Price includes assembly, fitting, Intown water bottle, and 6 months free adjustments.)

We offer the Jamis Ventura Sport as our entry level road bike this year. The aluminum frame and fork give it a nice, light, nimble ride. The Shimano Claris transmission makes for positive and reliable shifting. This is a great entry-level road bike: good for workouts, good for longer rides, even good for the occasional sprint triathlon. Also available in cosmo blue.

Jamis Ventura Sport Femme

$700

(Price includes assembly, fitting, Intown water bottle, and 6 months free adjustments.)

We offer the Jamis Ventura Sport Femme as one of our entry level road bikes for women. Like it's brother above, the aluminum frame and fork give it a nice, light, nimble ride. The Shimano Claris transmission makes for positive and reliable shifting. This is a great bike. You can add it to your workout routine, take it on a group ride, or go to the coffee shop. Also available in gloss black.

Jamis Quest Sport Femme

$725

(Price includes assembly, fitting, Intown water bottle, and 6 months free adjustments.)

The Quest Sport Femme is our other entry level road bike for women. The difference between it and the Ventura Sport Femme above, is the steel frame. It lends the bike a subtly different feel to the ride. Think smooth, stable, and comfortable. Of course the women's seat, narrower bars, and adjusted "geometry" make it very comfortable for women. Take it out for a workout. Do a charity ride. Ride it around town. It does all of these things well.

Raleigh Grand Sport

$850

(Price includes assembly, fitting, Intown water bottle, and 6 months free adjustments.)

This is one of our favorite bikes this year. The looks caught our eye first, then the ride. Very smooth! This is a great all-around bicycle. The steel frame, the geometry, the wider tires, and the Shimano Claris components make it great for commuting, touring, day rides, and even the occasional dirt roads.

Think performance here. The carbon fork, Shimano Sora components, and Alex 470 rim/Formula hub 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.

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 Renegade Expat

This is the stuff y'all. Take it gravel grinding, take it bike packing, take it on a tour, even ride it to work. Steel Frame. Carbon fork. Hydraulic brakes. Tiagra 10 speed shifters and derailleurs. We know why it got all the good press it did this year. Come try it and you'll see too.
