Im looking for a new bike. Seems like a cyclo-cross is going to fit my needs, Road bike geometry, wider tires, tough enough for banging around the neighborhood, good ride for a century, fast enough for some sprint triathlons.
If you disagree please let me know. The problem is I can only go about $800. I also really want cheater brake bars (i think thats what their called, brake levers on the upper part of the handle.)
I can not find out anywhere if the Kona Jake has these. If so it looks like it would meet all my needs.
Any comments or thoughts are welcomed.
