Jamis Nemesis 2016
If you’ve ever wanted a carbon mountain bike but your wallet couldn’t be persuaded to agree, here’s a deal on 2016 bike that would normally be way out of our price range. The Jamis Nemesis ($1,299 at Jenson USA) is a full carbon hardtail mountain bike that’s lightweight and ready to charge. A Rockshox Recon Silver provides 100mm of suspension up front. Shifting is handled by the reliable Shimano Deore mountain bike groupset. With two chain-rings up front and an 11-36 cassette in the rear, you’ll have plenty of gears for any terrain that comes your way. Shimano hydraulic disc brakes and WTB tubeless-ready wheels round out the parts package. The Nemesis includes quality bars, stem, and a seatpost from Ritchey. Note that the Nemesis does not ship with pedals, so you’ll need to grab a pair; you can’t go wrong with Shimano’s reliable XTR pedals ($90, also at Backcountry).
