SPONSORSHIP AND EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES
- Does Jamis offer any employment opportunities?
Jamis Bicycles is continuously on the lookout for talented, enthusiastic and creative individuals to join our growing "team". Positions in all departments open from time to time as we continue to expand and grow. Jamis is comprised of a dedicated team of professionals that are motivated to designing, building and marketing Jamis Bikes. Please visit our Careers page linked below for open opportunities!
- Where are Jamis frames made?
Jamis frames are designed in the USA and crafted with select fabricators in Asia. Jamis has long-time relationships with smaller builders that are specific to the various frame materials we utilize such as aluminum, carbon and steel. This allows us to ensure all frames are professionally crafted and handmade to meet the exacting demands of our designers and engineers.
- Where can I get a complete catalog that illustrates all the Jamis models?
Jamis offers a catalog archive, which includes product manuals from 2004 to present. Follow the link below for more information and to download.
- Is there a specific owner’s manual for every Jamis model?
Jamis has one general owner's manual for all of our products, providing lots of useful information on all of our bikes. You can find it in the link below.
- How can I figure out the model year of my Jamis Bike?
We can help with that! Please complete our General Inquiry form, which will be linked below, and provide the serial number located on the underside (bottom bracket shell) of the frame. This will help us determine model year. Many times, there are 2 numbers listed on the bottom bracket shell which can cause some confusion. The correct serial number will be a 9- or 10-digit alphanumeric sequence, usually beginning with a letter, and will not have any spaces or dashes.
Additionally, we ask that you upload a photo of your complete bike via the file uploader in the below form.
- I'd like to build up my Jamis bike. Are there assembly instructions available?
Assembly instructions are not available as all JAMIS Bicycles are to be built by a professional bicycle mechanic. It is important that a professional bicycle mechanic go through your bicycle to assure that it’s assembled properly, all adjustments are made correctly and that it is delivered to the end user in a safe riding condition. A bicycle built by a professional bicycle mechanic validates your warranty. Any work that is done by a non-professional bicycle mechanic voids the warranty registration.
- Do you have touch-up paint available for my frame?
Unfortunately, we do not have touch up paint available aftermarket. We just have too many colors and change them too often. We would recommend that you visit your local hobby shop or check online for hobby shop paints. With hundreds of color options available, you should be able to find a close match for your bike.
- Are there bushing and pivot service kits available for a Jamis full suspension mountain bike?
Yes, service kits are available and can be obtained through an Authorized Jamis Retailer. The retailer will be able to determine the appropriate year and model to order the appropriate service kits for your bike.
- What is the warranty coverage period for a Jamis bicycle frame and fork?
With the exception of the bicycles that listed below, warranty coverage on the bicycle frame and non-suspended forks extends for the life of the bicycle provided that the bicycle is owned by the original retail purchaser.
a) Full suspension bicycles with rear suspension travel of 5" or less: 5 years
b) Full suspension bicycles with rear suspension travel of more than 5": 2 years
