2017 Jamis Coda Sport

Our Codas have been some of our most popular bikes for years, and for good reason. There’s the smooth-riding Reynolds chromoly frames, the well-thought-out geometry, the heads-up riding position and the smart component selections, from the super-wide gearing range to the easy-adjust stems: these bikes are simply some of the best and most versatile around.

      I bought this because I wanted to get into biking, but wasn't ready to go all out on an actual road bike. It served its purpose, but getting into cycling as a sport just highlighted the Coda Sport's deficiencies. After a few thousand miles, I've found the components are pretty mediocre and are not suited to inclement weather or cruddy roads. The steel frame is sturdy, but it does transmit a lot of harshness to the hands. This may be due to the upright geometry, but I'm not sure. The brakes are alright for casual riding, but descending steep hills in the rain is treacherous. The brakes also required a lot of adjustments and never really were centered on the wheels. I also had to have the wheels trued way too many times. Some of this may have been due to the shop that assembled it though. This all sounds bad, but the Coda Sport is a good bike for the right application. If you mostly cruise around town or have a short commute, it'll serve you well. The upright position and steel frame ensure that it'll survive the city (unless the weather is bad). Also, there are plenty of braze-ons, so you can load it up with all your gear. But if you think you may get into actual cycling, save your money and get a road bike.

      Comments:

      I purchased this bike on somewhat of a whim after deciding that I was going to use cycling to get my exercise. For that purpose, it was successful. However, once I got more into cycling as a hobby, I realized the Coda Sport's deficiencies rather quickly. Although the components are okay for casual riding, I've found that they don't hold up well when the riding starts to include long distances and winter commuting. Also, I've had to have my wheels trued about a half-dozen times (to be fair, maybe I got a bad batch or the shop did a poor job building them) and the brakes/levers are not adequate for anything other than piddling around town. My seat clamp also gave out after just a few weeks and I had to replace it with a non-QR clamp that hasn't let the seat slip in thousands of miles. If you're like I was and looking for a more relaxed bike to ease into the cycling hobby or bike commuting, this probably isn't the best bike. The geometry is not good for longer rides and the flat bar limits your hand positions. I added bar-ends, which was a life-saver, but even then I still had limited places for my hands. So if you think you might one day be serious about cycling or bike commuting, just spend the money and get a road bike. If you just want a grocery-getter, the Coda Sport will serve you nicely. It's got a light, but sturdy steel frame, plenty of mounting points for racks and fenders, and it's very zippy and responsive.

      Good Deore drive train. Strong chromoly frame and fork. Fast 28mm 700c tires. Pretty fast, very quiet. Comprarable in components with Trek 7.3 FX. Even though the Trek is aluminum it weights the same as the Coda Sport and the Coda's chromo frame/fork soak up the bumps a lot better.
