Hey guys, I fell in love with cross and have started training for the 2009 season. But heres the thing, I need a bike.... I work at a shop so I've been digging around looking for something but it's hard to say what would be a decent bike without actually testing it out in the field.
So heres my question, obviously I'm looking for a race ready bike, and I can get a pretty damn good deal on an '09 Jake, And I can get decent deals on some other stuff, Like a Conquest Pro... Would the Jake be a good starter bike?
It's a little heavy, but I figure I can put it on a bit of a diet (and myself too). So what do you guys think?
