Description

The JC-26X introduces rear suspension into the model range. Along with this there are a wide range of choices within the 4 categories of  across the 27 speed, 30 speed, X.9  and XT. Stadardizard across all four models you’ll find an aircraft-grade 7005 aluminum frame, Tektro levers, and Michelin tires, plus the FRP (Fiber Reinforced Plastic) cushion mesh seat with a headrest. The Chrome Moly fork means extra strength but not extra weight. Chrome Moly is a high-quality steel that will take the punishment that the roads will dish out in the 1000s and 1000s of miles ahead.

The 27 Speed is characterized by the 9s Sunrace cassette and the Novela Mechanical Disc Brakes. The higher end of the chainring delivers a 52/11 for sporty descents and rip roaring tearaways along the flats. The lower end gives you a 30/34 combination that would get you up K2 in the Himalayas (and the rear rack gives you plenty of oxygen bottle storage capacity…).

The 30 Speed gives you the key components of Shimano’s fantastic Tiagra 10 speed groupset along with Avid’s powerful BB (“ball bearings”) 5 mechanical disc brakes. Avid have done a great job with the design here. There’s an inboard pad-adjustment knob that allows fine tuning the distance between the rotors and the pads. Add the very nifty Tri-Align caliper positioning system to this (aligns the pads parallel to the rotor in around a jiffy), and you have a powerful and durable braking system that will serve you well for a long time.

The X.9 gives you the choice of installing SRAM’s X.9 long cage 10 speed derailleur and TRP’s powerful SPYRE Disc Brakes. SRAM’s X.9 benefits include an extremely smooth and precise shifting experience. Wheel removal and installation is a bit easier too. You also get SRAM’s TT500 shifters, which give you a degree of shifting precision characteristic of a higher level shifter. The disc brake is TRP’s SPYRE for stopping power. It’s a dual piston setup which results in even pad wear ( the rotor doesn’t flex to one side during braking).

Finally, for the same price you can choose the XT alternative which basically swaps out the X.9 long cage with Shimano’s XT derailleur. It will depend on your needs. Note that both the X.9 and the XT feature an 11-36t cassette. Coupled with the 30t chain ring (smallest of the triple crank) means serious climbing power. It’s not about speed, but versatility; and you’ll climb almost anything with that combo.
