Jamis has been kind enough to introduce us with the 2011 Jamis Sputnik Fixed Gear, available in three different colors; orange inferno, gloss black, and pearl white. At first glance, the drop handlebars gives the impression of a true track bike, the frame brings a vintage style, but the overall components sets 2011 Jamis Sputnik in the commuter class.
The Jamis Sputnik 2011 frame is made of Reynolds 520 double-butted chromoly main tubes with SST tubing diameters, sloping top tube frame design, double-tapered cromo stays, lost wax rear entry dropouts with single eyelet. Forks are constructed of lugged chromoly straight blade with lost wax sloping crown, forged dropouts with single eyelet. A strong build, but can be on the heavier side for some.
As of now, a MSRP is yet to be determined, but you can see the full specifications below.
