    Thanks. Took me a long time to pull the trigger. Been very happy with it so far.

    my daily commute is a mix of road/gravel/dirt/grass/broken concrete sidewalk, so i ended up with a CX. no, i don't race, yet, but i'm hoping to get down to the race at Ommegang Brewery as it's pretty close to me.

    every day it's not raining "hard", i'm on this Nashbar steel CX headed to work. only mod thus far has been SPD pedals. considering a frame swap, as i've seen the Jake on sale, but it's a great workhorse as is...

    Here's what I replaced it with; 2011 Redline Conquest Pro... most of the components were direct transfer. Needed new headset and bottom bracket. SRAM Red cranks and Soulcraft tensioner are the big differences aside from the frameset.
    I did some masking/paint work to turn the stock red accents into pink to match my team colours.

    Its not a bike, just a frameset for now, but it'll be my next restoration project.

    You might want to consider running that chain tensioner up instead of down, especially with such a small chainring

    My 2009 Kona Jake. Chris King headset, Hope stem, SRAM Rival crankset, Thompson seatpost, Specialized Avatar saddle. I'd like to upgrade the fork to a carbon fiber unit next, the stock fork is so heavy!

    Love this bike. I am looking for a frame for my wife and she really likes this one too. The thing is that she will probably never use it offroad so I doubt a cx bike would be ideal for her, despite how well suited they are for me.

    This has to be the sweetest package of upgrades I have ever seen on a Jake. Very nice.

    It doesn't go the other way. It is spring loaded. I'm probably going to run a 16t in the future anyway. 34-14 is still a bit too steep.

    It'll be a couple weeks before I ride it. I'm having the shop tailor it to me a bit. It comes with BB5 calipers, so I'm changing those to BB7's. The crankset is a 46-38 standard (strange combo), so I'm changing that to a 46-34 FSA Gossamer Compact (I know most go 46-36, but I like the tractor gearing of the 34 small ring).

    Expect a full review in a month or two.

    I think he ment that you should remove the spring. Like this:
