Bike Porn Friday


To your left, dear reader, is a picture of the Kona Major Jake, which Wired magazine really rather liked, while giving the impression that they don't really understand bikes one bit. We think it is deserving of a Bike Porn Friday slot. And Doug certainly does.
Meanwhile, in the search for something to hack around town, ride along tow paths, follow National Cycle Route 4 almost to Cornwall, and possibly take part in some cyclocross in winter, my eyes were drawn to a second-hand team issue Terra-X in Condor. I doubt I could carry off the pink bar tape. And to where would I affix the requisite panniers for the great trek west?
The search continues. But the Canadian Major Jake does look very fine (and, as the geeky Wired points out, contains a good dose of atomic number 21)
Flootsnoo!
Trois V!

    You don't spend enough time (any time) in the gym to pull off pink handlebar tape.

  2. Plan B. is a plain Jake, with a set of Zonda wheels as 'spare'.
