Nothing compared to most of your guys' bikes, but at least it was cheap.
I was skeptical about the flat bars, but after riding it on some MTB trails I'm glad I kept them. 8x1 XTR/XT drivetrain. Ready to find some CX races
scandalumm makes me think it's a major jake, but it's ooooolllld. it has a big 2002 era 'kona' emblem on the dt that i wrapped with an old tube.
anyone know more info on this frame?
it rides SO NICE. it's maybe a CM or 2 too big for me.
Had this for a few weeks now. Want to replace all the Tiagra crap by the end of the year.
Cell phone pics are all I have.
you really need a nicer camera
Here's a pic of mine. I just finished getting it together a few days ago. I bought a Kona Jake the Snake frame and transferred over my 2000 Lemond Zurich components to it. It has Ultegra shifters and front derailleur, rear DA derailleur, Paul's Neo Retro brakes, Mavic Open Pro wheels (with ceramic braking surface), Ultegra hubs and Maxxis Locusts tires. I had switched out the gearing on the Lemond to a 50/34 crankset and a 12-27 cassette previously, so this is the gearing on the new JTS. I'm new to cyclocross, but not new to cycling. I also have a 2009 Cervelo RS road bike and a Giant Rainier beater MTB.

Here is mine. Its a conversion of an old hybrid. I raced on it once with downtube shifters. They weren't too bad, but I did finish 2nd to last.

"change is the only constant"
Dusted off the bike (actually stole it back from my teammate) for a ride. Sorry I'm blocking it a bit...
a little dirty after the cross crusade race in hillsboro
I think you need to have a single speed to rock a sticker like that. I think it's a UCI rule or something.
BTW, nice bike and caught in it's natural state.
I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC
something about vulgarity and reducing chain suck. thanks!
I got this tonight. Can't wait to go ride tomorrow.
