It's not hard to change raise the handle bars on a Jamis Coda, If you remove the "stem" cover piece, you can have the LBS fill the space needed with "spacers", and get either a "more angle stem or a adjustable stem". I had mine on my Coda Sport, switched out from a 10 degree, 120mm stem to a 35 degree, 110mm stem to bring the bars, "higher and a bit closer to me", FYI. Don't let the componet HYPE get to you, The comp has decent componets that work well! I've been "extremely" happy with my 2012 Jamis Coda Sport and it has lower grade componets than the Comp model and it works great, even pulling a utility trailer!Looking to get a Hybrid. Want to be more upright for my back. But do want as much performance as I can get. I will use it for fitness riding and around town. Mostly on street, but would like to be able to ride in the park too on fire roads and hard pack dirt once in a while.
Looking at Jamis Coda Comp vs Trek FX 7.4. Like the "soft" steel feel of Coda Comp but the Trek seems fast and agile. Can not find 2012 Coda Comp anymore and some are saying the 2013 are lower end components now - it is almost $100 cheaper than the '12. Also will need to raise handle bars on both - some say that is harder on Jamis Coda Comp. Any input would be really appreciated.
HEY! I just got one, Yesterday! :thumbsup: I got a Blue 17.5". The wife got a Red 15" WDS.I ended up buying the trek 7.2 fx rides nice.
When I got it home, last night, I started checking fasteners, that I thought I may have to mess with, on the road, to see what kind of tools I would carry.Correct me if I'm wrong cuz the guy at my local bike store told me this but he said treks use oddball bolts and nuts so it's harder to find bolts and nuts for them but giant uses more standard bolts and nuts, I don't know if this is true but that's what the guy said....
