Jamis Allegro A2 (2021)

Musically speaking, Allegro means quick and lively. Which exactly characterizes the the Jamis Allegro. These fitness bikes are lively, quick and seriously fun to ride.

Chosen previously by Bicycling Magazine as the best hybrid at this price point, the Allegro A2 gets upgraded significantly for 2021 with more powerful hydraulic disc brakes and a 2x drivetrain.

Shimano's new (to hybrids) compact 2x drivetrain simplifies shifting to two gears up front instead of three, while keeping a wide gear range. A change needed long ago.

The A2 model is a huge jump up in component quality from the A3 model and every other sub-$500 hybrid bike on the market.

If you are going to ride more miles than average, whether for fitness or commuting, this is the quality level of componentry you should start with.
