Jamis designed their Earth Cruisers to be kinder, gentler versions of their sport comfort Explorers. The Earth Cruiser 1’s single-speed coaster brake drivetrain eliminates the complications of derailleurs or hand brakes so you can simply enjoy the ride comfortably and safely. The lightweight aluminum frame's Step-Thru design adds to this simplicity by making it a snap to get on and off the bike. In spite of the Earth Cruiser’s name, it’s not just for riding at the beach. It’s for any rider anywhere looking for a simple, lightweight, low-maintenance, and good-looking bike to casually and comfortably pedal around town all day, every day.
