Any reviews/input on this bike? It seems to be the least expensive cross bike out there (important to me!) since I'm having no luck getting info on a Surly here in Canada. There are two Jakes, I'm talking about the less expensive one.

I got a 99 (the orange one). The frame and forks are great - you can't go wrong. The rest, like any bike, you get what you pay for. The standard stuff is fine, and you can upgrade as you go along. I have now got mine set up with Campy racing triple and Open Pros on Record Hubs, and it's pretty much prefect for cross, road (though little heavier than pure roadie, but great for training) and commuting.

Havn't got a bad word to say about it.
