Quad Cycles is a Jamis dealer based in Arlington, Massachusetts, just a few miles from Boston. We have an extensive selection of Jamis bicycles.
Jamis Bicycles, based in Florida, introduced the Earth Cruiser, a beach cruiser, in 1979. In 1980, it made the Boss Cruiser, featuring a double-diamond frame and a Cheeks saddle. Jamis sold its Boss Explorer comfort bicycle in 1981, combining the Boss Cruiser and early mountain bikes. In 1983, Jamis launched the Dakota, Jamis Lightfoot and Jamis Roughneck. The first Jamis Dakar in 1985 was a custom-built, race-ready bicycle from the factory. The Dakar is still sold, although it has been revised many times since its initial release.
In 1988, Jamis introduced the Eclipse and Quest, their first road bikes. In 1991, Jamis introduced Coda and Tangier hybrid-style bikes with an upright seating position and 700c tires. Jamis sold the Dragon, its mountain bike, in 1993, featuring a fillet-welded, hand-polished tube frame, RockShox front suspension, XTR drivetrain and Ultegra hubs. It made its first full-suspension bike in 1995.
The off-road Dragon and on-road Eclipse were the first American-made production bikes to have Reynolds 853 tubing on their frames. In 1998, Jamis made the Diablo, with a vacuum-resin, molded-carbon monocoque frame. Its Dakota mountain bike won the Bike of the Year Award from Mountain Biking. In 2000, Jamis won Bike of the Year again for bicycles under $800 with its Dakar Sport.
Jamis' leaders are committed and passionate about cycling, and they inspire the company to never settle for "good enough". The Jamis team aims for nothing short of perfection all day, every day.

The Jamis Coda Sport is a standout bike in the world of recreational cycling. Its steel frame and fork provide you with a soft yet springy feel over pavement cracks and the occasional patch of dire. The Shimano drivetrain and Alex wheels keep you riding reliably, with responsive shifting and incredible durability. For the commuters out there, the Coda Sport is rack and fender-ready; for those looking to exercise, the bike is 27 pounds light and comfortable enough to ride all day. Stop by for a test ride!
