Kona Super Jake
Beginning with the frame of the Super Jake, the rear triangle is built with shorter tubes which increase maneuverability which is especially useful around the sharp corners that are common in cyclocross racing. The chainstays are also noticeably wider than normal which improves stiffness and pedaling efficiency. The frame was designed with plenty of clearance to avoid mud buildup between it and the tires as well. The bike is built with SRAM's cross-specific Force CX drivetrain and disc brakes while as an added bonus, the mounts for the brakes are set slightly inside the frame for protection and cables are all routed internally. While there are faster bikes available, the Super Jake has plenty of features that make it obvious that it was designed by people who definitely know about riding cyclocross.
