Jamis Super Nova Featured in Cyclocross Magazine!

Just in time for cyclocross season!  Jamis Super Nova was featured in Cyclocross Magazine!  Jess happens to ride this bike, and she gives it two thumbs up!
The 2012 model year sees the respected name Jamis written on the tubes of three models aimed at the cross market. At the top of the line is the Supernova, which comes race ready for $2,600.00.
The frame for each of the models is the same Kinesium aluminum, which Jamis describes as similar to 7005 series tubing, used in the 2011 models. Jamis only made minor revisions to the Supernova since 2011 models, including the change from a BB30 to a PF30 bottom bracket. The carbon stays also make a return, although they are mated to a beefed-up 34.9 mm seat tube to increase stiffness. The front end uses a 1 1/8″ to 1 1/2″ tapered head tube with a full carbon fork. The fork features a stout, CNC’ed cable hangerintegrated into the fork. The hydroformed top tube is shaped for shouldering, and it’s sloped a bit to accommodate a right shoulder (sorry, Kevin Pauwels and other “dirty side” dismounters!). Those of us that use our rides for more than racing endeavors will appreciate the ability to add a rack and fenders when things go longer than 45 minutes.
The Supernova gets a Rival build complemented by Kore Race+ cantilevers and Ritchey Zeta Pro wheels.  For the more budget-minded, Jamis will also offer the Nova Pro with a Shimano Tiagra build for $1750 and a Nova Race with a Sora/Tiagra mix and mechanical Avid BB7 disc brakes for $1200.
