The least expensive steel frame model in Jamis' Renegade lineup is built with Reynold's 520 tubing, the gold standard is chromoly steel since the 1980s.
The steel frameset, matched with a full carbon fiber fork up front, offers a noticeably better ride quality than comparable aluminum bikes.
The Renegade S4 is outfitted with Sora components, Shimano's better recreational rider parts kit.
It’s a 9 speed group that's excellent for the money and does most of what the more expensive groups do.
It has mechanical disc brakes instead of hydraulic and weights a bit more, but it has been proven to be very reliable and in our experience needs the least tuneups and adjustments of any Shimano component group.
