I am looking to build up a new bike for the 2010/2011 cross season and I have narrowed my frame choices down to the 2011 Kona Jake the Snake and the 2010 Kona Major Jake. I am looking to build a good durable race bike and I want to keep the total cost around ~$1600. I have most of my components already chosen but I cannot decide on the frame.
The 2011 JTS is $480 shipped without a headset and the 2010 Major Jake is $680 shipped with a headset and has a better fork, an alpha c20. With the final build of the Major Jake being about $100 more my question is then which is a better buy, the scandium major jake or the JTS which now has a tapered head tube and BB30 bb? Thanks in advance.
Here is a link to the 2011 Kona JTS for convenience:
