    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.
    when walking, just walk. when sitting, just sit. when riding, just ride. above all, don't wobble.
