    Jamis Coda Comp Upgrades

    So, I am hoping to get some insight, even though this isn't exactly a mountain bike.
    I have only owned decent mountain bikes in the past (my main bike is a nemesis pro) but just purchased a Jamis Coda Comp for commuting and riding around town.
    The frame is awesome for it, but it is lacking in a lot of other ways.
    The derailleurs on it are Shimano Altus, which I know nothing about.
    I am first looking to upgrade the shifters (Shimano EZ Fire Plus ST-EZ65) and derailleurs and am looking for some advise on what would be the best (and easiest) upgrade.
    Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    Easiest upgrade to do is replace the tires. Most OEM tires are bottom end. Specialized had a great deal on buy 1 get 1 free on road tires. If it was me I'd get some Roubaix Armadillos or All Condition Armadillos if you want something with more tread.

    The shifters that came with your bike aren't bad. You could replace them with a Sora or Tiagra but I don't think it will be a huge difference.

    Thanks for the post. I was actually going to get new tires this weekend and have no experience with road tires. I appreciate the recommendation.
    As far as the drivetrain goes I am looking at going with a SRAM Rival 1 1x set up...still in the early stages of looking into it but seems pretty ideal for what I need.

    Rival is great. Just remember that the SRAM shifters won't be compatible with your Shimano RD. You're going to have to switch that too. Get some lighter wheels and you'll have one heck of an urban flyer with that setup. Steel frame and speed are a good combination. Post some pics when you get it all done.

    Personally I would upgrade the cockpit: handlebar, seat and pedals. They will make a bigger difference than anything suggested so far. Remember no matter how fast it shifts you won't notice if your ass is sore. Good luck
    A garage full of steel frames means happiness.
