YO, open to suggestions:
should I get a Kona Jake the Snake?
I want something fast and aggressive, good for training both sprints and long distance, good for road racing IF I decided to do that, but I am more committed to racing CX on it, so clearance for bigger tires is a must.
I AM on a budget. I'm selling my CrossCheck, and that will help cover costs, but ideally, I want to stay under $2k. I'd also be open to buying just a frame and building it up, but a complete bike would be preferred. I like Shimano groupos. Um... I'm happy to answer any other questions.
I get a pro deal on Kona and Felt through my team's sponsors, but I can also get pro pricing at Q.
