Introduced in 2014, the Renegade was the first production gravel bike in the US. These are Jamis' most acclaimed models and some of the best gravel bikes available under $5,000.
Jamis' designers TC Corbett and Greg Weber were inspired by custom frame builders at the time who were modifying cyclocross bikes by adding rack and fender mounts and widening the frame to take larger than the standard 700 x 33 size cyclocross tires.
These unique cyclocross, touring, cross country mosh ups have, a decade later, come to dominate the drop handlebar bike market, outselling road only racing bikes 20 to 1. These bikes define multi-surface versatility.
