    They even put the rear brake in the right place.

    Oh man! That is exactly what I'm looking for. This will be very tempting to me. I assume it can take a rack and fenders to become the ultimate fast commuter!

    I really hope this comes in less expensive than the 2013 Specialized Tricross Elite Disc Compact @ $1,550.

    Have you seen previews of the new steel kona rove with disk brakes? Might make a better commuter than the cx Jake bikes. Reminds me of the salsa vaya.

    Love that new Jake. Much better color scheme that the past two years. I love my 2010 Jake, but wow, that looks nice.

    I did see the Rove, and it's definitely interesting. It reminded me of the Raleigh Roper. But I've been riding a 2008 Jake for four and a half years and love it. The disc brakes on this year's model may finally be the thing that gets me to upgrade.
