|I am considering a venture into Cyclo-cross and am looking into some advise as far as sizing the frame. How much standover clearance should I have? Any comments on the Kona Jake the Snake?

|Do ride a road bike? If so try going 1 size smaller than it is.|

|In Amsterdam, Presto is fairly upscale but good (and a couple of speedskating teammates work there), and I would also recommend Lohman. I don't know if either of these "do" cyclocross. Jan van Wijk (Wilhelmsparkweg 81) must be mentioned by virtue of proximity to my parent's house.|

|www.Bike2Build.com is my favorite, but they're not too near Amsterdam, about one hour to the south. It's more like a classic LBS going online.
Visit their site to get the best tubes in town the TUFO's are great!

|Mammoet Rijwielen in The Hague. It's the place I work :-) . It's less than hour from Amsterdam, it's near station Holland Spoor in The Hague and then a five minute walk to the store (tops). Check our website www.mammoet.nl for a detail map/info, or e-mail me.
Hope to see you, ask for Richard.
