Opinion needed on custom 09 Kona Jake
Good morning guys, i've been in the market for a cross bike to use for urban transportation, greenway riding, and light off road capabilities.
I've been in contact with an owner of a custom 09 Kona Jake. here are the specs.
09 Kona Jake - frame has been stripped and powder coated black.
Standover - 814
Salsa Wood Chipper dropbar
Salsa bar tape
TRP V Brakes
Truvativ 10 speed crank
Ultegra 10 speed cassette
105 front brake and shifter
Ultegra rear shifter
Hubs - Front: Formula, Rear: Shimano Tiagra (stock)
Rims - Alex AT450 (stock)
Tires - Victoria Randonneur Pro Road Touring Tire. 700x35
My standover is 850. I'm 6'0" 190lbs.
We are in negotiation for $550 for the bike w/o pedals. obviously after inspection, but i was just curious if there is anything I should be on the lookout for or if this seems like a good deal. Seller is the second owner, an experienced mtb racer and mechanic. Just has too many bikes to ride and maintain.
