Feb, 2009 – Jamis Bicycles of Northvale, NJ is now an official sponsor of Ray’s Indoor Mountain Bike Park located in Cleveland, Ohio. With the sponsorship, Ray’s has a fleet of Jamis Kromo’s available for customers to ride at the indoor facility. The Kromo, Jamis’ dirt jump/street bike inspired by Jamis Gravity Team riders Jordie Lunn and George Ryan, is one of Jamis’ newest models. The 4130 chromoly steel frame, hardtail design and single speed drivetrain is perfectly suited for the ramps, ledges and terrain featured at Ray’s. The deal also includes a new Jamis sponsored feature which includes a stretch of the expert rhythm section, located adjacent to the rider lounge.
Josh McClean and his wife, Carrie, of Rochester, NY visited Ray’s recently. “The new Kromo’s looks like a great ride, unfortunately they were in use the entire time we were there.” Josh commented that the bikes had the perfect geometry and spec for the indoor mountain bike park.
“We are really excited to be a part of Rays Indoor Park. It’s a great partnership that enables us to help keep people riding in the cold winter months!” commented Jamis MTB product manager Craig Hoyt.
Ray’s, opened by Ray Petro in an industrial area in downtown Cleveland, is open during the winter months 7 days a week. The facility features obstacles that reach into all realms of mountain biking, from ramps and jumps to rock gardens and ledges. Ray’s is the only indoor mountain bike park in the US and is quickly becoming one of the top riding destinations in the country.
