Strength:

Comfortable, smooth ride, easy to pedal

Weakness:

Brakes could be more aggressive, gears sometimes jam/chain falls off sprocket when switching around the lowest gears (even after a tune up & derailuer adujstment at a local bike shop).

The Jamis Explorer 2.0 is a nice all around bike. Comfy, and it rides smoothly and effortlessly. It's not too heavy, yet its very sturdy.

Strength:

1.Lightweight aluminum frame
2. MegaRange 21 speed gears
3. Comfort (seat and pst absorb lots of bumbs and you don't feel sore after riding)
4.Value while more expensive than a box store bike it has good feature/ cost ratio compared ti Giant or Raleigh bikes in its class

Weakness:

not meant for serious off road riding

Overall it's a great bike that welcomes those of us who haven't rode a bike in a while with open arms. It's light (not extremely light but lighter than the Pacific or Mongoose at Walmart)and the gearing is much better than my old Huffy 18speed

Similar Products Used:

Huffy stone mountain (not as good)
Schwinn high timber(better than huffy,not as good as Explorer without new gears,brakes, and new seat post)

Strength:

Comfortable saddle and riding position. Smooth, reliable shifting.

Weakness:

None

After much studying of all the comfort style bikes available, I narrowed the field to two choices; the Jamis Explorer and the Giant Sedona. I finally decided to go with the Jamis Explorer 2.0, and I'm glad I did. It's a great, solid, reliable ride. I use it for running errands on busy city streets and for pleasure rides on local bike trails. I'm a big guy (6'6" & 270 lbs) so I ordered the biggest (21") frame size. I have found this frame to be fully up to the task of getting me around town. And it's a great looking ride.
