Posted: February 11th, 2013 | Filed under: Featured, Jamis, Products, Road Bikes, Womens Bikes | Tags: , , , , , | Comments Off

VENTURA COMP BANNEREvery once in a while, a new bike comes out that has just the right blend of weight, performance, ride quality, parts spec, and of course, price. The 2013 Jamis Ventura Comp and women’s specific Ventura Comp Femme are just such bikes.

The Jamis Ventura has always been a winner. Literally. It’s a perennial finalist and multiple-time winner of Bicycling Magazine coveted Editor’s Choice awards. Whether it’s the top-end Ventura Race, the high-value Ventura Sport, or the over-achieving Ventura Comp, the whole family offers great rides at even better price points.

2013venturacompThe all-new 2013 Ventura Comp and Comp Femme continue the tradition by combining their light, efficient, and comfortable Kinesis 7005 double-butted aluminum frames – featuring size specific tube diameters and a tapered steerer tubes – with smooth riding, ultra-light full carbon forks, the awesome new Shimano Sora shifters/derailleurs, and venerable Mavic CXP-22 wheelsets, all for $950.

Seriously. You’re getting full carbon, hollow-crown, 1 1/8″ – 1 1/2″ tapered steerer forks on bikes that retail for less than a grand. There are some $1500 Shimano 105 bikes that can’t claim that. Hell, there are some $3000 carbon bikes with Ultegra Di2 that can’t give you a fork that’s as smooth, stiff, and light as the ones you get on the 2013 Jamis Ventura Comp and Comp Femme.

2013venturacompfemmeLong story short, these bikes ride amazingly well – they’re balanced, quick, smooth, fun – and they’re worth every penny. Great first road bikes? Definitely. Perfect Gran Fondo, all-day bikes? Of course. Light-touring workhorses? Winter-training machines? Gravel road adventurers? Super-commuters? Yes, yes, yes, and yes. These bikes can do it all, do it well, and do it with style. Come by the shop soon and check out what just might be the best riding, best looking bikes you can get for $950.
