Prototype Jamis Carbon Disc Brake Cyclocross Bike – UPDATED!
UPDATED: More photos of the bike added!
Tyler Wren just won the Crusher in the Tushars endurance cyclocross race aboard a 2013 prototype carbon fiber disc brake equipped Jamis ‘cross bike.
Not sure what the production spec will be, but Wren’s bike was outfitted with FSA cranks, an ENVE disc ‘cross fork, Shimano Di2, TRP Parabox braking system and Stan’s NoTubes wheels. Over on CyclingUtah.com’s race report, he was quoted as such:
“The new Jamis prototype I rode was the perfect set-up. The hydraulic disc brakes gave me a lot of confidence on the big descent, and the Shimano di2 had no performance drop over the course of the muddy race, as a cable set-up surely would.”
Interestingly, looks like he was running road pedals while many of the competitors were riding mountain bikes. More as we get it. Video and more pics of the bike…
Cockpit is Ritchey with a San Marco saddle. Top photo and those below from Wren’s homepage.
The frame has internal wiring and hose runs for the shifting and brakes. The wiring port covers have a small bolt, suggesting they’re swappable for standard derailleur cable stops, too.
Di2 battery mount is under the bottom bracket.
