A new model, aggressively priced and with a smaller chainring combination for more climbing power. It feels lighter and more responsive than a mountain bike, because it is. Stable handling and an easy-to-use control layout makes this a natural for people who are rediscovering the joy of cycling.
FRAME: Reynolds 520 double-butted chromoly main tubes, reinforced head tube collars, double tapered cromo stays, forged dropouts with eyelets.
Old Reliable...The Reynolds frame is nice at this price and it has been a great bike. I did change the wheels to Mavic CXP 22's with Shimano 105 hubs. The stock wheels were junk; spokes a poppin' at about 200 miles. I have about 5000 miles on it now and it is doing great. Other than routine maintenance I never have to touch it. Switch the seat and wheels and you are good to go!
Strengths: Shifts like a dream! Very sturdy frame, takes bumps and dips very well; outstanding turning and control
Weaknesses: the peddals didn't last nearly as long as I'd have liked (though it was just the excuse I was looking for to get the one's I wanted..); the straight handle bars don't allow for much in the way of hand placement
About two years ago, I was looking for a way to slim down after porking out at nearly 300 lbs. and I hate to run.. So I bought a bike. Little did I know I was getting one incredible ride!
To make a long story short, I lost all the weight, got down to 195 lbs in less then a summer and was ablr to rejoin the military. And I owe 90% of that happening to my Coda. I put over 1400 miles on it during the summer of 2006 and now I'm raking up the miles screamin' around Germany!
I can't wait to hit the roads in Italy and Japan next!!
I'm new to the world of biking. I need something to get me back and forth from work. A total of 8 miles round trip. My commute has some ok hills and valleys. The easy shifting of the Coda makes the hills easy to climb.
I believe the Jamis Coda is a 2002 or 2007, the Jamis Nova is a 2003 , my uncle passed away and I inherited his bikes. If anyone is interested in it please email me or call 480-216-6312. These bikes have never been used. Here is some information I got off of bike-Pedia otherwise I really don't know ... Read More »

Been out all summer using this bike as my means to get back in shape as part of beating my Type 2 diabetes. Now I have the opportunity to use it to help others by participating in a ride that supports the MS Society. The bike has been a pleasure to ride, and I'm really looking forward to putting it ...
