Recreational Cyclocross and Gravelbiking This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

the jake the snake has better wheels, better components [mostly 105 vs. sora] and a better frame [easton ultralite]. ifr you plan to race at all, don't even think of the base-level jake. the jake the snake is probably one of the best values in cycling right now. it is a real 'cross bike.
