Bike Porn II...

It's that time of year already - the slide into Autumn, the shorter daylight hours, the urge to get off-road, the cyclo-cross season.

I rarely raced cyclo-cross, and when I did I always seemed to end up flat on my back in a drainage ditch. I love cyclo-cross bikes for getting around quickly off road though.

I don't own a mountain bike, and I make sure that all of my off-road routes can be handled by the trusty 'cross bike. I got this one last year, a Kona Major Jake (some would say Major Joke when they see my bike-handling!). It's easily the best of its kind that I've ever ridden, although I'm very tempted by a nice Colnago 'cross bike, available locally at a good price at the moment.

I've just got in from a nice two and a half hour loop, and while I was cooling down I decided to take some pictures of the bike using my 'phone. The photos aren't the best of quality, but here she is anyway...

Nice "Jake". My buddy Eric rides the scandium version. Liked it so much, he sold his road bike, and pulls double duty on both road and trail... Be careful on those barrier dismounts!
