Comfortable, enjoyable mobility: that’s Citizen. This is the ultimate low-carbon-footprint, sight-seeing machine. It’s a low-impact and fun workout for new cyclists and a zero-emissions way to get around town. We can’t think of a better way to be a good Citizen.
If you're looking for an all-purpose bike that can take you around town or down your local rail trail paths, the Citizen 2 has all the right equipment. The lightweight aluminum frame and fast-rolling 700c tires accelerate briskly, and the Suntour suspension fork provides just enough shock absorption to take the bite out of rough roads. A 21-speed drivetrain paired with linear-pull brakes allow you to roam the hilly countryside with minimal effort, and a large comfort saddle, high-rise handlebar, and included kickstand all contribute to creating an enjoyable ride everywhere you go.
EASY TO LOOK AT. We’re super proud of the Citizen’s sleek frame design, featuring an arcing top tube. AND EASY TO RIDE When it comes to recreational riding, nothing gets more uncomfortable faster than having to pedal more weight than necessary. That is why the Citizen 2 is built with lightweight 6061 aluminum tubing. In fact, our aluminum Citizen frame is at least a half-pound lighter than our famous steel Coda street bikes. We design comfort into the naturally stiffer ride of the aluminum tubes by specifying larger volume 38c tires and adding a few millimeters to the chainstay and wheelbase length. RIDE POSITION A usual complaint from new or returning riders trying to get into the cycling groove is feeling uncomfortably perched forward with too much weight on their wrists and having to crank their necks backwards just to be able to see in traffic. We specifically designed our Citizens to remedy this. The large diameter 700c wheels push handlebar height up and shorter top tubes pull handlebars closer to the saddle, all to mitigate forward lean. Our 4-inch rise handlebars sweep back at a natural hand-grasp angle with a long-quilled or angle-adjustable stem that allows for a wide range of adjustment to tune handle bar height and reach perfectly for each ride. WHERE IT COUNTS Our super-plush saddle features memory foam padding for optimum support with maximum comfort. The slip-resistant suede-type top prevents sliding and the burnished side panels reduce leg friction while pedaling. Elastomer springs help soak up high resonance road vibrations. WHY 700C? So why go with a Citizen instead of an Explorer or a Hudson since they all seem to offer many of the same comfort and quality attributes? It’s simple: if your riding will be primarily on the road or on smoothly graded trails, the larger diameter road-bike sized 700c Citizen wheels roll faster with less rolling resistance and roll over potholes and railroad tracks more smoothly than the 27.5” wheels of the Explorer and Hudson. GEARED TO GO The drivetrains on our Citizen features a long cage rear derailleur, a full-size 48/38/28T triple chainring cranksets and big 12-32T gearing in the back. This gives you the dual advantage of having fairly tall gears for controlled pedaling at speed on descents as well as really low gearing for easier pedaling uphill. It’s a rider-friendly combination that’s made the Citizens a perennial favorite of recreational cyclists.
Experience the joy of riding a bike again with the affordable Explorer 1. The Explorer's hi-tensile steel frame rides smoothly and comfortably thanks to the natural shock damping qualities of steel, and the long angle-adjustable stem and 3-inch rise handlebars offer an upright riding position that's easy on neck and wrists. Plus, the Femme design includes a step-thru frame that makes mounting and dismounting a breeze. The 21-speed SRAM 3.0 twist-shifting drivetrain with triple-ring SR XCC 48/38/28 crankset, Shimano Altus front derailleur, and 14-34 Mega-Range freewheel make hill climbing easy, and bumps melt away beneath you thanks to the suspension fork and seatpost. Tektro's CL530 brake levers offer slip-resistant, shock-absorbing inserts on the finger contact points for more secure, comfortable braking, too.
The Explorer has been one of Jamis' best-selling bikes, ever since it’s introduction in 1982. Originally designed as a mountain bike, the Explorer has since evolved into a very practical and very comfortable bike. Inspired in part by the Hudson and Citizen, without sacrificing the versatile on- or off-road competence of the original Explorer, the newest generation Explorer is all about getting the most fun out of the ride, in style, with performance and comfort features that make getting around feel effortless and fun. The Explorer Sport combines a rugged, yet lightweight aluminum frame that puts you in an upright position that is comfortable all day long, while its suspension fork reduces shock to your hands and wrists so you experience less fatigue on bumpy roads and trails. You also get a 24-speed Shimano drivetrain, Tektro brakes, and a memory-foam saddle to make every mile full of smiles. Getting out and riding has never been so easy!
