Comfortable, enjoyable mobility: that’s Citizen. If you're looking for an all-purpose bike that can take you around town or down your local rail trail paths, the Citizen 1 has all the right equipment. The lightweight aluminum frame and fast-rolling 700c tires accelerate briskly, and the 21-speed drivetrain paired with linear-pull brakes allow you to roam the hilly countryside with minimal effort. A large comfort saddle, high-rise handlebar, and included kickstand all contribute to creating an enjoyable ride everywhere you go. We can’t think of a better way to be a good Citizen.
EASY TO LOOK AT We’re super proud of the Citizen’s sleek frame design, featuring an arcing top tube. AND EASY TO RIDE When it comes to recreational riding, nothing gets more uncomfortable faster than having to pedal more weight than necessary. That is why the Citizen 1 is built with lightweight 6061 aluminum tubing. In fact, our aluminum Citizen frames are at least a half-pound lighter than our famous steel Coda street bikes. We design comfort into the naturally stiffer ride of the aluminum tubes by specifying larger volume 38c tires and adding a few millimeters to the chainstay and wheelbase length. RIDE POSITION A usual complaint from new or returning riders trying to get into the cycling groove is feeling uncomfortably perched forward with too much weight on their wrists and having to crank their necks backwards just to be able to see in traffic. We specifically designed our Citizens to remedy this. The large diameter 700c wheels push handlebar height up and shorter top tubes pull handlebars closer to the saddle, all to mitigate forward lean. Our 4-inch rise handlebars sweep back at a natural hand-grasp angle with a long-quilled or angle-adjustable stem that allows for a wide range of adjustment to tune handle bar height and reach perfectly for each ride. WHERE IT COUNTS Our super-plush saddle features extra-high-quality polyurethane padding for optimum support with maximum comfort. The slip-resistant suede-type top prevents sliding and the burnished side panels reduce leg friction while pedaling. Elastomer springs help soak up high resonance road vibrations. Offered in gender specific sizes. WHY 700C? So why go with a Citizen instead of an Explorer or a Hudson since they all seem to offer many of the same comfort and quality attributes? It’s simple: if your riding will be primarily on the road or on smoothly graded trails, the larger diameter road-bike sized 700c Citizen wheels roll faster with less rolling resistance and roll over potholes and railroad tracks more smoothly than the 27.5” wheels of the Explorer and Hudson. GEARED TO GO The drivetrains on our Citizen 1 features a long cage rear derailleur, a full-size 48/38/28T triple chainring crankset, and big 14-34T gearing in the back. This gives you the dual advantage of having fairly tall gears for controlled pedaling at speed on descents as well as really low gearing for easier pedaling uphill. It’s a rider-friendly combination that’s made the Citizens a perennial favorite of recreational cyclists.
Comfortable, enjoyable mobility: that’s Citizen. If you're looking for an all-purpose bike that can take you around town or down your local rail trail paths, the Citizen 2 has all the right equipment. The lightweight step-thru aluminum frame and fast-rolling 700c tires accelerate briskly, and the Suntour suspension fork provides just enough shock absorption to take the bite out of rough roads. A 21-speed drivetrain paired with linear-pull brakes allow you to roam the hilly countryside with minimal effort, and a large comfort saddle, high-rise handlebar, and included kickstand all contribute to creating an enjoyable ride everywhere you go. We can’t think of a better way to be a good Citizen.
Comfortable, enjoyable mobility: that’s Citizen. With the Citizen 3 Step-Thru's easy-on/easy-off frame design, nearly anyone can experience the joys of cycling in a safe and comfortable way. Jamis designed the Citizen around comfort first, putting the controls closer to the saddle and the hips slightly behind the feet to create a relaxed riding position that encourages a heads-up view of the road ahead. Lightweight alloy rims wrapped in plump 700 x 38c tires carry momentum effortlessly, while the 60mm suspension fork aids in smoothing rough surfaces. A wide-range 24-speed drivetrain is welcomed in hilly areas, and the plush seat, anatomic grips, and wide platform pedals bring extra comfort at the contact points for never-ending enjoyment in the saddle. We can’t think of a better way to be a good Citizen.
