View Full Version : SOLD -Jamis Renegade Expat - Adventure/Gravel Grinder

08-31-2017, 04:02 PM
Jamis designed their Renegade to be the ultimate adventure bike. It takes the versatility of a cross bike and adds more relaxed geometry to allow for greater endurance and enjoyment on pavement as well as gravel. It can handle everything you throw at it from weekend rides or commuting to touring or off road exploration.

I test rode many similar bikes in its class; Surly Straggler, Kona Rove, Salsa Vaya etc. The Jamis stood out for being the most lively and fun to ride. It's higher quality steel frame and carbon fork allowed for greater comfort and its lighter frame and livelier geometry just made it more nimble and fun.

It has clearance for tires up to 40mm without fenders and I have run it with the stock 35mm gravel tires (knobbie corners) and stainless steel Berthoud fenders with clearance left over. It has braze-ons to meet all of your wants and needs including fenders, racks and even a third water bottle boss under the downtube. The Thru axle on the front wheel inspires confidence over the rough stuff with increased stiffness and stability and allows for a perfect alignment with disc brake after removing the wheel.

Size 54cm. Fits more like 55cm due to longer top tube.

Upgrades installed at purchase last year:
Berthoud stainless steel fenders installed by Counter Balance Cycles.
Shimano 105 5700 compact crank (Purchased new and swapped at purchase due to dislike of previous generation FSA omega)
Compressionless brake housing
Schwable Marathon EVO 35mm tires (will include near new stock Clement X Plor 35 mm gravel tires that fit with fenders!)
Will include either crank brothers pedals or shimano SPD.

See here for specs and geometry: http://www.jamisbikes.com/16_pdf/16_renegadeexpat.pdf

Optional Add Ons:
Custom PitLock locking skewers (including Thru axle) $50
Thomson Silver Seatpost and Stem ($80)

Cost over $1700 with upgrades. $1300 MSRP
Would like to sell in the next few weeks. Entertaining all offers. Asking $975

Will take $900 without fenders or rack.

If I'm way off on the asking price let me know. I can't imagine a year old adventure bike would depreciate that much but I'd rather not be delusional.
