    I have the '08 Jake and love it for commuting and occasional CX racing. I didn't like the triple chainring, so I bought a compact double Tiagra crankset from ebay for 40 bucks and haven't looked...

    Cross bikes also have a higher bottom bracket than road bikes. This is to allow for better clearance if you try and hop over a log or obstacle.

    The wheelbase of a cyclocross bike is longer. ...

    Not silly at all. I didn't like the placement of the shifter placement either; cosmetically didn't look good, but functionally it made more sense to put it closer to the stem (for me at least).

    I was in the same position as you. I commuted on a Bianchi San jose, but wanted some gears. At the same time I wanted to keep the clean lines of a single speed. So seeing Sheldon Brown's set up...

    I was told by a Shimano rep that it wasn't possible cause "the pull on the shifter had to be exact on the hub, otherwise it would mess up the internals". Seeing as I didn't want to mess around with...

    Not much to it. Just put a mtb bar end on. I should have just used a Cane Creek aero bar (after shortening it, of course) cause it would have been clamped on versus muscling the bar end on there.

    Thanks for the tip. I ended up getting the twist (revo) shifter. But if the alfine becomes readily available, I'm getting it.

    Hey, where'd you get the alfine shifter? I've been waiting for a nexus 8 shifter for over a month. I'm converting a Bianchi San Jose to have the nexus 8 hub but no shifter.

    I own an '06 SJ and it's a great commuter. I had to get a different set of wheels (fixed/free) with road tires, but other than that, the bike is great to ride both on the road and off-road.

    You do realize that the Langster is a single speed/fixed gear, right? Between the other two, I'd say get the one that fits better and is better spec'd.

    Good luck.
