Conquest Pro Vs. Jake The Snake?(2 posts)

Conquest Pro Vs. Jake The Snake?desmo
Dec 8, 2003 3:59 PM
I'm new to cross bikes and bought a used Jake the Snake a couple of months ago. I love the bike but it's too big for me. Fit ok for a road bike but I'm riding a lot of single track with steep climbs and the zero standover is getting a little close on those bail-out situations. I can get a good price on a Conquest Pro in my size but wanted some opinions, as I eally like the Jake. One concern is the Alloy fork on the Redline. The heavyweight steel fork on the Kona is pretty reassuring on the fast, rocky descents and washboard fire roads I've been riding on. Is the Redline more a strict cross course type of bike or will it take some heavy abuse as well? Any input appreciated. thanks.
