2017 Jamis Trail XR
2017 Jamis Trail XR
FRAME DESIGN & SIZING
The sloping frame design of the Trail XR is offered in up to 8 sizes (depending on model), assuring the best possible customer fit for optimal handling and enhanced comfort Our smallest 12” & 13” frames are especially suitable for junior riders. These frame sizes can comfortably & safely fit some kids as young as 9 or 10.”
Jamis is famous for making great high-end steel bikes. So when it comes to a more affordable bike like the Trail XR, it’s got to be good to know that the same experience and skill that designs and fabricates a Dragon is working for you on the XR.
TOP TUBE CABLE ROUTING
Running the cables up under the top tube keeps cables and housing out of the muck for more precise and reliable shifting performance.
DUAL WATER BOTTLE MOUNTS
Most of our Trail XR sizes (17” - 21”) offer two water bottle mounts located inside the main frame. This provides excellent hydration capacity in an easily accessible position. Or you can use one set of mounts for a bottle and the other for a battery for a light.
STRAIGHT TALK ABOUT FORKS
Our straight-bladed tubular unicrown fork is significantly lighter than most suspension forks, offering more responsive steering and an easier-to-lift-up-the-dorm-stairs bike.
QUICK AND EASY
Every Trail XR offers quick-release front and rear wheels, as well as a quick release seat post clamp, to make transport, storage or locking up a snap.
Many folks find throttle-style shifters much simpler to use than those that operate by thumb. There’s something intuitive about simply twisting the inboard side of your handlebar grips to change the speed at which you’re pedaling. Which why our Trail XR feature Grip Shift from SRAM.
Many of the parts specified on the Trail XR are made of aluminum to save weight, but also to help preserve the finish of the bike. Aluminum parts include the seat post (it’s micro-adjust too!), seat clamp (with QR!), rims, and crank arms.
TOP FIVE THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW
Our straight-bladed tubular unicrown fork is significantly lighter than most suspension forks, offering more responsive steering and an easier to lift-up-the-dorm-stairs bike.
XR's 21-speed SRAM twist-shift drivetrain shifts intuitively and smoothly. With 3 chainrings up front and a 13-28T indexed freewheel in back, steep hills are flattened and fun.
Every Trail XR offers quick release front & rear wheels and a quick release saddle assembly to make transport, storage, or locking up a snap.
That long-quilled, hi-rise stem positions the XR riser handlebar higher than on our other Trail series bikes with threadless steering systems for a more propped-up, less-weight-on-the-wrists riding position.
There's lots of lightweight, rust-proof alloy parts on the XR -- micro-adjust seat post, crank, seat post clamp, rims and brakes -- that make riding more pleasurable & maintenance easier.
