Calgary local David Yexley races CX in the men’s elite category and has just finished his cross season off at the Canadian Cyclocross Championships with a respectable 12th place. During the season he also took home a first in the Alberta Cyclocross Cup, and a second at the Alberta Provincials, he did it all in this custom built fast-AF 2018 Super Jake.
The crew at Bike and Brew in Calgary, never shy away from custom builds. They built David’s race bike around a 2018 Super Jake frame, it’s sporting 55mm deep RX55 wheels, hand built in Canada by Tairin Wheels out of Vancouver. It’s running a Sram Rival drivetrain with Easton EC90 42T carbon cranks to help push them watts out. A setback Thompson Elite was added to get the fit dialed for “full send mode”, the bars are adorned with Supacaz super sticky Kush bar tape with a star fade for added grip and “sexiness”.
David summed it up “This Kona can hold the line when you’re on the edge.”
