Kona Jake the Snake – $1679

Kona managed to make an amazing bike even more so. After years spent dominating the North American cyclocross scene, they made the chainstays a full one centimeter shorter on this year’s frame, resulting in a bike that’s noticeably more nimble, accelerates more quickly, and snaps through corners. A zero stack tapered head tube, BB30 bottom bracket, and a full carbon fork with tapered steer tube makes the whole bike stiffer. Specs include a 10-speed Shimano Ultegra/105 drivetrain, Shimano wheelset and Maxxis Mud Wrestler tires. The perfect amateur CX race bike that can double as an urban speed vehicle.
