I know there are a few Kona Jake riders here. Just wanna know how heavy is a stock Jake? I am considering one of these for a replacement commuter.

Can't say for sure because I've never put mine on a scale, but I was a bit surprised to discover that my Jake the Snake (step up from the Jake, aluminum frame, carbon fork, Mavik Aksium wheels) feels heavier than my 80's steel Bianchi road bike. But the JTS is about a hippopotamus lighter than my mountain bike.
