Every 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.
The 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.
Long 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.

Yup. They’re finally here. Like a lot of S-WORKS products, it’s hard to image how they could get any better, but leave it to the designers and engineers at Specialized to figure out how to make the best even better. The 2013 S-WORKS Road Shoes are indeed lighter, stiffer, and better fitting* than the previous generation. We have a couple of popular full-sizes in stock and we’ll be getting in more sizes and half sizes really soon. Check out the link for more info and stop by to check out the new hotness.
And as you might expect, with the arrival of the new 2013 S-WORKS Road shoes comes a sale on the 2012 shoes. The shoe that, as of a few weeks ago, was the lightest, stiffest, best-est shoe money could buy is now just $250 (regularly $360), so if you’re looking for an amazing shoe at an amazing price, come by and get yours. We also ave lots of other 2012 shoes on sale, from both Specialized and Shimano, so the S-WORKS kicks aren’t in the budget but you still need a great new riding shoe, we’ve got what you need.
*Please note that the fit of the 2013 shoes is significantly different than earlier versions, so we strongly recommend that you come in and try on the shoes before you buy a pair. Specifically, the new shoes seem to run a little bit bigger, so don’t be surprised if you go down up to a full size.
