Washed out yesterday on some deep gravel and put a small crack in the top-tube of my 2010 chili con crosso. I need a reasonable replacement frame suitable for my failed attempts at racing cross. Looking at a Specialized Crux but wanted to see if anyone had opinions on the 2012-2013 Kona Jake The Snake.

I want a new, cheaper CX frame for the coming season and am all over this.

My 2013 Cinelli Zydeco frameset was $900 here in Toronto, purchased in April. All carbon tapered fork. Headset included. Spare derailleur hanger included. English threaded BB.

There's sometimes a buggy.
How many drivers does a buggy have?

One.

So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.

Hey Maximilian...you read my mind.

I ordered a new Crux frame-set in that color scheme last Wednesday, (canti version).

No knowledge of the Kona, but the new Treck Crocket frameset looks good... disc or canti.

Rumor mill says it's good enough for Sven Nys...
