Jamis reinforces the idea of steel in 2011 as a steady and most capable platform when it comes to road bikes with the Satellite. Using Reynolds 520 double-butted chromoly main tubes, the Satellite is further made rider-specific with Jamis’ SST tubing diameters.
The steel frame is matched with a full carbon composite fork with forged alloy dropouts and single eyelets. The 2011 Satellite features a sloping top tube design and double-tapered cromo stays. The 1 1/8″ headset houses NVO components, Ritchey handlebar and stem with a Jamis bar tape and Touring Sport saddle and satin steel rails.
The rest of the classic design is Shimano Tiagra derailleurs, SRAM cassette and an FSA Vero triple crankset with sealed cartridge bottom bracket. For stopping power, the 2011 Satellite has Tektro dual-pivot calipers with Shimano Sora levers. Keeping your ride running smooth are Mavic wheels, Formula alloy hubs and Vittoria Zaffiro tires.
The steel wonder comes in Black Forest Green/Pearl White or Pearl White/Gloss Black colors, weighs 23lbs with an MSRP of $925.
