A great utilitarian ‘cross package, the Jake comes with all the bells, whistles and ride performance that allows it to be a Jake of all trades. With fender and rack mounts, a wide range 2x drivetrain, the Jake can go for a spin to work, through the ‘cross course, or across a country or two. Just don’t forget your passport.
The 2016 alloy Jake models feature a refined geometry with a lower bottom bracket, slightly taller head tube and slightly shorter top tube. The result is a bike that’s stable and allows the rider to achieve a more neutral fit, while preserving the racing heritage of the platform. The head tube angle for all models corresponds to the bottom bracket drop, allowing the bike to be ridden more aggressively without fear of going over the bars. The slacker head tube coupled with the shorter top tube also preserve the wheelbase and make for a responsive, confident ride.
