Jamis Sequel 2020 Review

It’s the sequel you’ve all been waiting for: Introducing the Jamis Sequel 2020.

Need a do-it-all commuter bike that’s fit to tackle weekend adventuring? Then look no further than the Jamis Sequel commuter bike! With 650x47mm wheels, custom mountain bike style geometry, easy access mounts and Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, the Jamis Sequel handles anything that urban sprawl throws at it plus tougher trails if you’re hit with the adventure bug. 

The Sequel stands apart from its predecessor (and long standing customer favourite) the Jamis Coda, a reliable yet simpler commuter series spec-wise. 

Here’s why we think you’ll love the Jamis Sequel just as much as we do:

Speedy and comfortable tires

Jamis Sequel 2020

The 650x47mm wheels are smaller than the Sequel’s cousin Coda and make for a more comfortable ride that doesn’t sacrifice on pace. The wider tires absorb a lot more reverb, making tougher terrain cinch. 

Custom geometry

Jamis Sequel 2020

Similar to a mountain bike frame, the Jamis Sequel features a steel Jamis Size Specific Design frame with a short stem making it swift and super fun to ride. Available in 15”, 17”, 21” and 23” sizes, the cunning commuter suits all riders and their chosen terrain. 

Easy access mounts

Jamis Sequel 2020

The wide variety of fork and frame mounts are positioned externally for easy use and accessibility. You can choose to mount fenders, rear carriers, low-rider carriers (cages, water bottle, storage) plus three front triangle water bottles. With a total of 22kg weight carrying capacity you’ll be equipped for all trips and weather conditions. 

Hydraulic disc brakes

Jamis Sequel 2020

With self-adjusting Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, changing gears on the Jamis Sequel is easier than in a car. Quick-stopping, reliable and low maintenance, Shimano brakes are top of the range and always get a gold star approval from our mechanics!
