The Capri 2.4's swooping frame design has a purpose other than great looks: with 24” wheels this bike offers a low standover and low center of gravity for stable, secure riding and control. Jamis increased the wheelbase length over their 20-inch mountain bike to offer even greater stability, security, and comfort. A seven-speed drivetrain with Shimano's Revoshift twist shifters is easy to learn how to shift and master and is enough gearing to get around the neighborhood comfortably. Just one chainring in front simplifies shifting, too. There's a full-wrap chainguard to keep the chain in place and clothes and legs out of the chain's way, and Jamis pedals offer a non-slip insert that keeps feet and shoes in full contact even when wet for safe and secure pedaling. Every Capri comes equipped with a kickstand to protect the bike from the typical dump-n-run parking damage— prevention that makes for a much happier new bike owner!
Jamis' lightweight and durable aluminum XR.24 frame is easier to pedal than steel and it's spec'd with a replaceable rear derailleur hanger for increased frame longevity. That rigid fork isn't just for cool looks; its light weight means greater control and safety for young riders. Compared to bigger 26” wheeled bikes, the smaller diameter 24” wheels and shorter 12” frame of the XR.24 provides more standover clearance and a lower center of gravity for enhanced control and safety, so young, aspiring mountain bikers can learn to ride both on and off road comfortably, securely, and safely. The double chainring crankset offers increased gear range (14-speeds) with an alloy outer rock guard to protect the chainrings from contact with curbs or logs, and it helps keep pants and legs clean too! Non-quick release hubs and seat post clamps ensure that wheels and seats remain securely and safely attached to the frame and fork.
Every Jamis youth bike uses size-specific items like grips, saddles and cranks that enhance comfort and control by providing the best possible bike. We focus on designing frames with low stand-over to take much of the awkwardness out of getting on board and dismounting after. We trim as much weight as we can with lightweight aluminum frames on many of the youth models and use aluminum parts where possible (the limiting factor here is working within a youth bike appropriate price point) to work towards that make-it-as-light-as-possible goal. The additional benefit of this spec-as-much-alloy-as-possible design bias is that the product will hold up in the elements significantly better (with a much slower and lower oxidation rate) than other kids bikes built with more steel parts. We know because we have kids too and their Jamis bikes are often left outside for much of the year. We’re amazed at how good these bikes look 3, 5, and even 7 years later.
Jamis' X.20 is a fun, safe introduction to the world of mud, sweat, and gears. This mini mountain bike offers a strong, lightweight aluminum frame with 20-inch knobby tires to fit beginning riders perfectly. A suspension fork soaks up the bumps, while grip shifter and short-reach brake levers make shifting and stopping easy for small hands. Plus, the heavy-duty aluminum and steel components will stand up to tons of fun riding. It's the childhood bike you wish you had.
The Lady Bug's frame design offers plenty of stand-over clearance for the youngest of new cyclists. Built with real ball-bearing (not plastic bushing) wheels with 16 spokes that roll smooth and last. The same concept is applied to the crank and headset on Lady Bug: both offer full ball-bearing construction so the little speedster can pedal and turn comfortably and securely. The full-length and full chainring-wrap chainguard keep clothes and legs cleanly and safely out of the way of the chain, while the fenders not only keep puddle spray off the bike and the rider, they also help to keep feet and hands away from spinning wheels. Those wide 12 x 2.125-inch tires offer a large contact patch for stability and control, and they're pneumatic, not rock solid, so they can be filled with just the right amount of air to provide a comfortable ride. There's a handlebar safety pad, too, and a safety bell which every little tyke just loves to ring whether on or off the bike.
Your little one will learn balance quicker than ever with Specialized's Hotwalk. It uses a lightweight, aluminum frame with an extremely low standover height so they have plenty of room to use their feet to propel themselves, while the comfy seat lets them sit down and coast when up to speed. The kid-friendly Hotwalk geometry makes this a perfect bike to introduce your child to the wonderful world of bicycling.
