My trusty old Specialized finally crapped out on me. Cracked the frame. With a race coming up this weekend and having missed commuting ALL WEEK I needed something... and fast! Called all the local shops, checked out all the sites, even went to fleaBay! Nothing. Cross Checks all sold out till Jan. and kinda pricey (for what I want). Everything was either too much $$$ or not in stock. I happened to check my local mountain bike assoc. website's classifieds and found an 08 Kona Jake with less than 200 miles on it for less than half of MSRP! I drove an hour+ to go pick it up and came home with a spare touring wheelset on the cheap too! After getting the stem swapped, pedals installed and got the cockpit all where I wanted it, it is ready to go for my morning commute. Pics and ride reports to come!
