    2) Something breaks in the indexing mechanism.
    3) A piece of severed...

    Yeah, that is a little weird. I had some shifting problems with my 2013 Jake that were caused by the internal cable routing, so maybe the 2012 didn't have that because they knew they hadn't figured...

    It's been suggested that the 'K' in my moniker stands for "Kona" (not true, BTW). I currently own a 2013 Kona Jake, a 2013 Jake the Snake and a 2008 Major Jake. So it may come as a surprise to you...

    For just riding around, you'll probably like the MTB gearing better. CX racing gears assume that anything steep will be short and that you'll just run it. For more general riding, you probably want...

    Yeah, we're kind of idiots here. Pretty soon we can probably expect Phil and Paul to spend as much time explaining why there's no gravel in Paris-Roubaix as they do explaining how drafting works.

    The question is moot. The word "Roubaix" has come to mean "gravel ride of some sort" in the minds of literally all recreational cyclists. And, of course, by "literally" I mean "not literally". ...
