my latest "project"
i've been changing some things up in the 'ol stable of bikes in the past few days. here is the latest iteration of my kona jake the snake 'cross bike. with a singlespeed chain, the 39/16 gear combo worked out perfectly without a tensioner. awesome!
the upside-down mary bar feels great too. lotsa' leverage for the singlespeed action, and i love the cafe racer look the pseudo-drop bar gives the bike. i think i'm gonna' race this in the singlespeed class next week instead... let the singlespeeders hand me my ass instead of the usual (tilford/stolte/wilhelm/thomas/jp...etc) A class beating. it'll be refreshing to see different people from behind...
comments on the bike are of course welcome!
