20-Inch (5-8 yr. old)
The lightweight and durable aluminum Jamis Laser frame is easier to pedal than steel, giving young riders the confidence to keep up with mom or dad. The 20-inch Laser actually offers two types of brakes: a standard rear coaster brake, which most youngsters are familiar with, and a rear V-brake which many are not. Having the rear coaster brake as a back-up allows youngsters to get used to hand-braking without going cold-turkey on the coaster brake they are comfortable with. The alloy rims are anodized black to provide even greater corrosion and rust resistance than the alloy already possesses, and the rim sidewalls are ground to provide a smooth braking surface for the rear V-brake. Jamis builds the Laser 2.0 wheels with 36 spokes in a 3-cross lacing pattern for strength and durability, and mounts knobby BMX tires that bite in the dirt but with a rounded profile that rolls smoothly on neighborhood streets and driveways. Every Laser 2.0 offers a kickstand for parking that pride and joy and a bell to announce that the Laser has arrived.
With a lightweight and durable aluminum frame, the Jamis Starlite is an easy-pedaling kids bike that inspires fun and confidence on every ride. The swooping frame design has a purpose other than great looks: with 20-inch wheels this bike offers a low standover and low center of gravity for stable, secure riding and control. The silver anodized wheels are durable, lightweight, and easy to pedal, and built with 36 spokes in a 3-cross lacing pattern for extra strength to keep up with the rough-and-tumble nature of childhood. Starlite's swept back handlebars are specifically designed to be easy to reach and promote a comfortable, secure, and upright ride position, and the extra-plush, broad-based saddle features a suede-like brushed vinyl top that's grippy and keeps young riders from sliding around unsafely on the saddle top. Finally, a rear coaster brake plus an additional rear hand brake work together to as your child progresses, and a full-coverage chainguard keeps shoe laces and clothing out of harm's way.
