Musically speaking, Allegro means quick and lively. Which is exactly the spirit of Jamis Allegro Sport 2014 Hybrid Bike: fitness bikes that are lively, quick and seriously fun to ride. Our Allegros blend the speed and efficiency of a road bike with the heads up riding position many people prefer. The combination of road bike drivetrains, flat bar shifters, lightweight aluminium frame and carbon fork means you can race it on the weekend, then race through traffic during the week.
The 21-speed Shimano Ez-Fire shifting drivetrain with 48/38/28 Shimano FC-M171 crankset, Shimano RD-M360 rear derailleur, and 12-28t cassette offers a much larger gear range, with much lower gearing, for easier hill climbing, than standard 53/39 or compact 50/34 two ring road bike drivetrains. ''Tektro's mini ''''v'''' brakes offer stop-on-a-dime braking performance with a power modulator on the front for safe, secure braking.'' The Alex rim/Formula hub wheel set is light, but tough, for on or off-road durability, with excellent load carrying capability & handling. ''vittoria's Randonneur 32c tires offer low rolling resistance for a fast ride with more air volume and a wider ''''footprint'''' than 25 or 28c tires for a comfortable, confidence-inspiring ride. A ''''Double Shield'''' puncture- resistant barrier and reflective sidewalls increase safety, security and peace of mind. Jamis Trekking saddle is broader and more deeply padded than other road saddles, but is still narrow & firm enough to promote higher cadence pedalling.
