Jamis Satellite Comp 2014
This is a well-specced road bike, with a quality Reynolds 631 steel frame, carbon fork for a smooth ride, and fast-shifting Sora 9-speed drivetrain (these were previously called Tiagra, but have been rebadged as Sora since Tiagra is now 10-speed). It has a triple chainring on the front for hill-climbing. The Vittoria Zaffiro tyres reduce puncture potential without compromising weight.
There are lower eyelets for a rack, and the rack struts can be attached to the seat stays with p-clips.
This bike is a perfect candidate for the PDW Full Metal Jacket mudguards.
