My beautiful brand new cx bike got stolen and I need to replace it
Three weeks after I bought a Kona Jake the Snake frame and custom-built it up with carbon this that and the other, it got stolen from my garden shed. I've been totally distraught ever since, and it's only now, five months later, that I am able to bring myself to consider buying a new one. It was an 07 model in that gorgeous metallic orange paint. And I was loving it. But the 58" model is now no longer in stock. And the thing I want to know is: what should I replace it with? The new 08 model is green, not a color I much like, and without carbon fiber stays, so although it's lighter (which I like), I reckon it's not as comfortable a ride, and probably cheaper. The angles also seem to have changed, though I'm not sure whether that means it's a faster more responsive ride, or a slacker ride. Anyway, should I go for this new model? Does anyone know how I can source a 58" 07 model? Or is there something else I should try in a similar-ish price range.
