wheelbase

So for some reason the Kona website isn't loading on my, or any of my friend's computers...
Anyways, I just bought some rollers and I don't have a measuring tape, so with Kona's website not working for me I have no way of knowing what my wheelbase is.
I've got an '08 Kona Jake the Snake 58cm. Anybody know the wheelbase length?

The geometry chart loads on my computer but they don't specify wheelbase.

ok, the kona website is working for me now (my internet's messed up...). You're right, they don't have the wheelbase for the '08, but they do for the '09 so hopefully they're the same.

Just set the bike on the rollers and use a plumb bob ( a string with a weight hanging from it) hanging from the front axle to see where the front roller needs to be.
