Hey y'all.

Just saw over at the 2003 bikes including the new Jake. Looks like a basic 105 setup with a combo o fothers. Nice frame (Easton Ultralight) to hang parts off of when it is time to upgrade.

From the main brands I researched all of them kind of have messed up sizing...or maybe I just have an oddly proportioned body.

Seems like to get a TT length you want you have to take settle for less standover than you really want. I would have liked to have had another inches clearance for the boys but in doing so I would have had to gone with too short of a TT.
On the other hand.....Eager Beagle

MJ got a Donnahue CX custom made (very nice ride). In an idle moment, we did some measuring up to compare it with my Jake. They were very close in all departments frame-wise.

I suppose I should add that MJ is a (fairly) normal shape, as am I, though I am a little taller.

So I guess that shows that the Jake geo is not all that strange?
