Take me home, Jamis!

The search for new wheels continues with the pearly white Jamis Commuter 4.

You'll no doubt look very sleek flying through town on this angel. In addition to its stylishness, the other features I liked were its zippiness, the dynamo lights, fenders and step through frame.

It wasn't so smooth over bumps. I still felt a tad jolted, but suppose I could change out the seat post to add more suspension.

It was also missing a kickstand, which seemed odd for this style of bicycle.

The way the Jamis Commuter 4 handled hills was impressive. With 8 speeds, I could ascend hills with about the same amount effort as taking a power nap. Fun!

And for about $700, this bike won't burn a hole in your wallet.

And as an added treat, the Tretorn Wellie Wagon was parked right in front of Mojo, so I got to test ride some rubber boots on the same afternoon. Very comfy and cozy with microfleece lining. And the Strala model even has a reflector on the ankle for us cyclists.

The wagon's making rounds in SF neighborhoods this month so keep your eyes peeled for these rubbers.
