2018 Jamis Renegade Expat
The 2018 Jamis Renegade Expat just came to light in the last couple of days. With a full ensemble of bottle bosses — five pairs all told — a carbon front fork, and a slick new paint job, the Expat looks equally as pretty on screen as it does on paper — for a cool 1200 bucks.

Like others, Jamis introduced a size-specific frame geometry, which means that each Renegade — six sizes ranging from 48cm to 61cm — has a unique bottom bracket height, rear center, fork offset/trail, and rear triangle dimensions. According to Jamis, this translates to a consistent ride and feel for every rider. The Reynolds 520 double-butted chromoly frame also features a 44mm head tube for a tapered fork, a threaded bottom bracket shell, seat stay disc brake mounts, and full top tube mounted cable housing. From an adventure standpoint, it has three water bottle mounts in and under the triangle, rack and fender eyelets, as well as clearance for 700x42mm and 650x47mm tires.
