20-Inch (5-8 yr. old)
Jamis' lightweight and durable aluminum XR.20 frame is easier to pedal than steel and features tapered and ovalized tubing to optimize frame strength and durability while offering the cool looks today's young riders appreciate. A six-speed drivetrain is ideal for most youngsters to learn how to shift and master. It's also enough gearing to get around the neighborhood or park comfortably, with just one single chain ring in front to simplify shifting. A double-sided chain guard keeps the chain in place and clothes and legs out of the chain's way. There's a protective derailleur guard attached to the rear of the frame to protect the rear derailleur from knocks, keeping it in adjustment longer for greater safety and control. A full alloy parts package, including seat post, stem cap, crank arms, seat post clamp, brakes, and rims reduces total bike weight and adds value. The XR.20's XC saddle offers lots of high-quality padding for comfort and control with a narrow nose so that legs can pedal freely without chafing.
The lightweight and durable aluminum Jamis Laser frame is easier to pedal than steel, giving young riders the confidence to keep up with mom or dad. The 20-inch Laser actually offers two types of brakes: a standard rear coaster brake, which most youngsters are familiar with, and a rear V-brake which many are not. Having the rear coaster brake as a back-up allows youngsters to get used to hand-braking without going cold-turkey on the coaster brake they are comfortable with. The alloy rims are anodized black to provide even greater corrosion and rust resistance than the alloy already possesses, and the rim sidewalls are ground to provide a smooth braking surface for the rear V-brake. Jamis builds the Laser 2.0 wheels with 36 spokes in a 3-cross lacing pattern for strength and durability, and mounts knobby BMX tires that bite in the dirt but with a rounded profile that rolls smoothly on neighborhood streets and driveways. Every Laser 2.0 offers a kickstand for parking that pride and joy and a bell to announce that the Laser has arrived.
