Strengths:    Well built, light, great road bike

Weaknesses:    Wheels were not well built, but I put better rims on it and now it's all good.

Bottom Line:   
I bought this used Jamis Coda about two years ago after my previous bike was stolen. Since then, I've ridden this thing hard and it still performs well for me after all this time. The components were great and it has been a high quality bike. I'm glad that I bought it.

Strengths:    Butter smooth ride, excellent components, rock solid.

Weaknesses:    None so far.

Bottom Line:   
I love this bike. Pro Cyclery took a stock 2004 Jamis Coda speed bike, and switched out the handlebars to drop bars, I also changed the pedals to eggbeaters, I now have a great cyclocross bike that I can confidently take in the dirt, and it keeps up with road bikes, all for $1000 and with better components than had I bought a cyclocross model.

Strengths:    Frame is the best part of this bike, along with it's weight (25 lbs stock)

Weaknesses:    If your looking for speed, don't look here, unless your ready to spend on upgrades.

Bottom Line:   
The rig is very sturdy. Read the bike set-up and you'll see I've made some major upgrades. At first the bike felt sluggish......until I dressed it up.
Now I stay right along-side road bikes. And they wonder why, or how it's possible.

Strengths:    Components are the highlight. Steel frame absorbs the jitters from rough city streets.

Weaknesses:    I am a large rider and was breaking spokes. I replaced the rear spokes with a stronger set of DT spokes and the problem was resolved.

Bottom Line:   
Wonderful commuting bicycle. Quick, nimble, fast, sturdy.

Strengths:    Stiff and light with great components for the price.

Weaknesses:    Too much flex in the seat post with a seat that is too big and mushy for serious riding.

Bottom Line:   
A great all around bike. Light and stiff enough to put down some serious miles, yet still very comfortable.
