SPONSORSHIP AND EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES
What size bike do I need?
Sizing is a complicated issue and not something we can recommend from your height or inseam. People’s torsos as well as leg and arm lengths can greatly vary how you fit on a bicycle. Your JAMIS dealer is experienced in fitting people with varying body types for bikes with different styles and can assist in finding the proper size bike to help you enjoy your ride. If you are making a considerable investment in your new JAMIS bike, you might consider scheduling a fit session with a shop experienced in custom fitting.
What are the benefits of JAMIS’ Femme women-specific bikes?
All our Femme models feature frame and fork geometry adjusted to women’s bodies to ensure the best possible fit and best possible riding posture. This means frame angles, front centers and fork rakes have all been refined. Then we specify broader-based, shorter-nosed saddles, shorter stems, narrower handlebars, and shorter cranks to fully optimize fit and ride experience.
Is there a weight limit to a JAMIS bicycle frame?
Weight limits for our bikes are listed in the owner’s manual.

I was trying to order a JAMIS Taxi through my dealer but they say you can’t deliver the size I am looking for.
What is the reason for that?
The Taxi model is a special make up for rental accounts and is designed for heavy use situations. It is generally a special order bike for resorts and businesses. Businesses order them in larger quantities and the bikes are shipped direct to them. This is the reason we generally don't inventory this model. We suggest that you take a look at our Boss Cruiser Models – These bicycles come in a variety of sizes and models and are simple, no nonsense, easy to maintain and comfortable to ride bikes. Jamis has been producing Boss Cruisers since 1979
