Ready for everything, the 2012 Jake the Snake Cyclocross Bike by Kona can race, commute, train, tour or plain old cruise around. Designed to competitively tackle the pavement, muddy wooded trails, grass, steep hills, obstacles and portages of cyclocross racing, cyclocross bikes are clearly PERFECT for all-terrain, all-weather city or country riding as well. In the more-affordable class of high-end cyclocross rides, Jake the Snake shares the same frame features and geometry of its World-Cup-ready, carbon fiber big brother, Major Jake, and features a Kona aluminum butted frame, Kona CX Full Carbon fork, Shimano 10-speed 105/Ultegra drivetrain, Avid Shorty 6 brakes, and Maxxis Mud Wrestler Kevlar tires. There’s also a lifetime original owner warranty on the frame. Good to go at $1550.
